Toot toot!



We aren't always the best about tooting our own horn when it comes to Gus & Ruby press and praise. But, dang it if we aren't proud of some of the fab shout-outs we've received over the years. We hemmed and hawed for far too long and dragged our feet collecting PDFs and links; but after all that, and help from our dear pals at Rumbletree, we are SO excited to finally have our press page LIVE on our website! Woo hoo!!

Check. It. Out.

Designer Spotlight: Fine Day Press

Watercolor inspired design is sweeping the wedding world these days and we couldn't be happier about it. The gorgeous gradients, soft romantic colors and hand-crafted feel of watercolor work makes our hearts flutter.

So, it's no surprise that when Ashley Austin, the incredible designer behind Fine Day Press (whose amazing cards and note-sets we carry in the shop), launched a watercolor inspired wedding album we scooped it right up.

Not only are the painted backgrounds striking on their own, but Ashley's superb eye for typesetting and gorgeous library of fonts allow for the perfect set of tools to craft custom designs that truly sing. To top it off, the invitations are flat-printed, making them a perfect budget-friendly option!

Take a peek at some of the inspired designs below and then call or email us to set up an appointment to see them in person.

Samantha is 30!!!

I am so happy to wish my dear friend and amazing business partner a happy 30th birthday! As you all know, Sam keeps things running smoothly at G&R and I honestly cannot imagine going through this journey with anyone else. She keeps me sane, makes me laugh, handles stressful clients with ease and enjoys scarfing down delicious food (like the milkshakes and fried pickles we are getting later today) as much as I do. Oh and she is as obsessed with Gus as I am with Ruby + Archie which makes me feel slightly less wacky. In other words, she might be crazier than I am and it's always good to have someone like that by your side:)

Happy birthday, friend. I love you.

Here's to the next 30!
