Kimber and Rob's Ashford Estate Wedding, Part 2

An original hand lettered monogram and diamond pattern  in soft, warm grays were the focal point of Kimber and Rob's wedding invitation suite. Their save the dates featured an original line art drawing of their venue, the elegant Ashford Estate, in Allentown, New Jersey. We loved the idea to put the monogram and venue drawing on personalized wine bottles!

Gabrielle and Andrew's Summer Shimmer

Gabrielle and Andrew were married on the second day of summer, and this gold shimmer invitation was fitting for their beautiful, sunny wedding day. We started with an original monogram and then designed a pattern based on Gabrielle's wedding dress. The monogram looked great on custom-printed, gold foil on cocktail napkins and matchboxes.

Map for the Hogan Family

Map for the Hogan Family. We began working with Katie and Kevin in 2009, when we designed the save the date for their 2010 wedding. Since then, between Katie and Kevin and their extended families, we have completed too many projects to post here. From a custom monogram to wedding invitations and day of the wedding materials to baby showers; wedding gift portraits (Father of the Bride parody) to anniversary portraits to baby portraits; banners to Christmas cards; moving announcements to retirement parties; birthdays to barbecues. We even created books for each of their children, year by year, chronicling the year's events and their growth in illustration. We are now at 11 books and counting! So a map seemed a logical next project, and we were happy to make such a special gift for a wonderful family.

Mansion at Natirar Elegance

We love adding wedding venue illustrations to our portfolio. The beautiful Mansion at Natirar in Peapack- Gladstone is an example of lovely,  historic New Jersey architecture. Built in 1910 as a private residence for an heiress, it has since been turned into a well-loved spot for elegant weddings.  The Mansion boasts amazing architectural details. Daniela and Erik chose to accentuate the charm of the building and grounds by using spots of gold foil and gray letterpress. A regal ruby color sets of the warmth of the foil. The interior architectural detail of a picture window overlooking the lush acreage was used for wine bottle labels. The bride's father made the wine, adding a personal touch.
Copper letterpress plates.
