Romantic Florals with an Original Monogram

Gina and Michael were married over the weekend, on what was the nicest weather day of the year so far! When we began working together last fall, they let us know that we didn't have to be shy away from using color. Purple was the main wedding color, so we used lots of it on their invitations. We were able to update existing floral bouquet artwork to use all purple hues. An original monogram was designed to accent the vines around the invitation. The monogram was placed on a lavender belly band and then used again on custom napkins and matchbooks for the reception.

Musical Sweet Sixteen invitations

Here is a Sweet Sixteen invitation for a talented young lady who plays violin and piano. An original piece of hand lettering was designed to work with the abstract musical scale, and watercolor splashes and hummingbirds added to the dimension of the design. The color scheme was chosen to match the birthday girl's party dress.

Watercolor Floral & Handlettered Winter Wedding invitations

These vibrant, bold invitations were the result of a collaboration with Flowers by Melinda of Lavallette, New Jersey, for her own wedding. She crafted a bouquet of roses and peonies, which was turned into an original watercolor painting. A hand-lettered monogram further added to the unique, custom look.

Hand lettered, Rustic Wedding Invitations

Kraft paper, cotton card stock, and twine gave this fall wedding invitation a soft, natural feel. Susie and Rob asked us to handletter their first names. We used the lettering again later for gift bag tags. The first letters lent themselves to an easy monogram, which appears above the sketch of their wedding venue, Bonnet Island Estate.

Backyard Wedding Celebration

Typography focused invitations have been popular this year. It's always fun to see what combinations we can come up with to create fresh designs. Here is Jessica and Dustin's backyard wedding invitation and illustrated direction card, using four fonts and printed on Arturo deckled edge, cotton cards. The gingham ribbon with burlap made a perfect accent for the down-to-earth feeling.

We created these watercolor invitations for a wedding celebration at the Jersey Shore oceanfront landmark The Columns in Avon-by-the-Sea. The aqua benches on the boardwalk were nice complementary artwork on the rsvp cards.

Wine Label Parody Save the Date

Arturo paper stock can make a great design look even better.  Deckled card edges and the soft texture of the cotton paper perfectly complemented the sketch of the clubhouse at Crystal Springs Resort.  And, of course, we never shy away from a parody.

Cristina & Lloyd's Puerto Rico Wedding Map

Cristina and Lloyd were married May 17th in Puerto Rico, at her grandmother's house (pictured on the map). What made this map a little different than any of our others is that the icons shown and states listed represent all the places from where friends and family traveled to celebrate the wedding. The newlyweds were generous enough to share a photo of how a print of the map was displayed with the seating chart we designed to match.

Architectural Art Deco Save the Date

Vintage architectural details can be very inspirational, and when they translate into a perfect design solution, we are thrilled. The window shape from the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, the venue for this Art Deco styled wedding, made for a nice way to display the typography.
