The Collective - Zoet Design

Designers are always our favorites. They make the world a more beautiful place and we love that. This completely applies to stationery designer and owner of Zoet Design, Kristie Carney. Her work is stunning and she makes our collective a more wonderful and beautiful place!

Discovering my calling as a stationery designer started young. I can remember when making collages, sketching, and scrapbooking was all I wanted to do in my free time. In high school my love of drawing and watercolor painting became my passion, and was my escape from the daily stresses of being a teenager.

I graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor’s of Science in Advertising. My emphasis was through the ATLAS program in Technology, Arts and Media, where my my design skills started blossoming and I discovered that I truly wanted to be creating beautiful things. I have continued taking courses on graphic design, calligraphy and the arts beyond my college days.

When it came to designing my own wedding, I flourished with learning all about the printing techniques, wedding etiquette and branding the day with how I wanted it to be perceived by our guests. My love for wedding stationery started long before I was married, but was confirmed then.

My office is full of watercolors, pens, pencils, my mind is full of ideas for patterns, illustrations and layouts. I look forward to creating something truly unique and original for you.

The Collective - Lisa Rundall Photography

Lisa's enthusiasm for her work along with her genuine interest in those around her made us love her right away! We are thrilled to have her as part of our collective!

Photographer Lisa Rundall uses her background in graphic design, art direction and studio art to influence her photography. Based in Colorado, she can be found working on portraits, travel, weddings and most anything of interest. We are surrounded by beauty everyday. From the person sitting next to you, the sky outside your window, the soft light at the end of the day... these are the things that keep her inspired. 

Receiving continued praise for her very personal and creative style that is as modern as it is timeless. She absolutely loves to capture all the wonderful moments and emotions that create a wedding and she puts her heart and soul into each event to create unique memories. Ultimately, these beautiful memories become heirlooms and are passed on from generations to generations. There is no greater responsibility. Often, the elements of a beautiful, compelling photograph align in the blink of an eye. Lisa approaches every assignment with the same sense of interaction and process that first drew her to photography.

The Collective - Ladybird Poppy

As members of the wedding community we tend to get #vendorcrushes. It is the same feeling you get when you see that cute boy but instead you are crushing on this person's genius with whatever it is they are good at. In this case, we have had a major #vendorcrush on our newest collective member for as long as we can remember. It started with simply seeing her floral designs to seeing her in action on a wedding day and knowing we had found a real talent. Not to mention we just wanted to be friends with her!

When Sarah Tedford with Ladybird Poppy told us she wanted to be part of the Union27 Collective we just about peed our pants! She has been our gotta get list for months and we couldn't be more excited to have her designing her creations in our space. 

Ladybird Poppy is the floral source for inspired hearts, specializing in weddings and events. Using trusted techniques to form original creations, we thrive on the extraordinary. 

Sarah has garnered a reputation for gorgeous, eclectic concepts with a smile. Sixteen years of floral craft enliven her works with whimsical sophistication. She values the collaborative process and brings out individual style in each commission. Her relationships with local wholesalers ensure integrity in every stem she plucks.

The Collective - Candice Benjamin Photography

What can we say? When we get a new member to the Collective we are giddy with joy! We would love to welcome Candice Benjamin to Union27! She is the creative genius behind her name-sake photography business.

As soon as Candice walked in the door we knew she had to be one of us. Her easy smile, kind demeanor, and wickedly talent portfolio made her name a perfect fit in our roster. 

Candice is a newlywed, sister, dog mom, and a wedding photographer who lives in sunny Colorado! She is a transplant from California but loves calling Colorado home now!

She loves color, laughter, forehead kisses, warm embraces, and capturing the memories that you want your grandkids to see one day.

Her biggest beliefs: smiles, letting go of traditions that don’t feel personal, running though a field in your wedding dress, sparkly shoes, never turning down a bite of desert, whispering jokes into your husbands ear, and hugging your best friend for that extra second just to show how much you care.

We love Candice's clean, bright and beautiful work and are so excited to have her as part of our collective!
