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.

Fun Gift Bag Inserts and Handpainted Wedding Menus

Victoria and Kevin made gift bags for their overnight wedding guests at Cedar Lakes Estate in Port Jervis, New York. The estate is a former summer camp turned resort. In keeping with the camp vibe, their gift bags included a deck of playing cards, as well as this cute little booklet. We loved how personal and thoughtful the contents were: the cover isa replica of Victoria's grandparents' photo album from summers in Port Jervis. Included inside each booklet is a history of and instruction for two family card games. Bag inserts provided thoughtful, handpicked local Hudson Valley suggestions from the bride and groom.

A handprinted and hand lettered dinner menu for the festivities features a spot illustration to represent each family - the Duffys (lion) and the Cherasias (cherries), which carried through to their thank you card design.
