ARTIST FEATURE, PART 1 : The Girl Behind English Tea Paperie || The VMFA in Richmond, VA


We shook hands and didn't recognize each other's names. Small talk happened. And then our eyes widened. Without second thought mutual fangirling ensued. Thanks Instagram stalking. 

Meet Chloe - the girl with the best hair, English accent, and true spunk that's hard to beat. She's the designer behind the amazing English Tea Paperie brand that brides far and wide swoon over for those custom, bespoke wedding invitations & papers. But really, here's what you need to know: Chloe is the girl next door.

And the natural place to begin telling Chloe's story is at The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (though we all know it just doesn't compare to London's offerings). P.S. this is just part 1...

"Whilst I was in London, I would often take breaks throughout my day to visit the art galleries. I remember staring at the paintings until the feelings of creativity washed over me."

"I'm no expert at this, but I think it's SO important to take time for yourself. To recharge. To have fun. Otherwise you'll become quite drained and that will be reflected in the work you produce. Also, having a massive coffee in your hand helps."

Chloe, I love all the adventures, hilarious blunders, and heart-to-heart conversations we've had. You're an inspiration. You're gorgeous. And you truly are whiskey in a tea cup. Keep doing you.

Until the next adventure...
