Key West Wedding at Truman Little White House

Mandy and Ed first came to us for Save the Dates for their Key West wedding. For their wedding invitation, they wanted an informational booklet for their guests to be able to use while visiting the island. First we created a watercolor painting of their venue, Truman Little White House, and used it as the cover of their destination wedding invitation.

Included in the book were a letter to their guests, accommodations information, and a custom map corresponding with the following page of "phony ads"for real places they enjoy on the island and other useful information.

RSVP postcards used a digital illustration of the Conch Repulic flag.

We also created an original monogram for their wedding brand, which was used in 
the booklet and later on cocktail napkins, coasters, stickers and favor tote bags. 

They loved their monogram so much they had a custom flag made!!

The Truman Little White House painting was used for ceremony programs 
and we loved their idea of using colorful fish on their seating cards.

Tara & Nikki's Classic Asbury Park Designs

As their six month anniversary approaches, we thought we would share these designs we created for Tara and Nikki's September wedding. We printed their wedding ceremony programs on small bags that were then filled with confetti. The brown bags were filled with goodies for hotel guests staying overnight. Personalized cocktail napkins with the famous "Tillie" the lettering from the classic  "Greetings from Asbury Park" postcard were a nice touch.

Here is a recently completed map that was commissioned as a wedding gift by the bride's sister. Jenn and Jeff were married last October in Spring Lake, New Jersey at St. Catharine Church. It was fun recreating their wedding cake, along with the rest of their story, in watercolor.

Evolution of an Original Monogram

Last summer, we had the pleasure of working with Susan and Jason to design their wedding invitations. The invitations featured an original monogram design, which they later used on cocktail napkins, ceremony programs and menus, along with their wedding cake! Our original monogram designs start with a handful of sketch options, from which our clients are welcome to combine elements to create the monogram of their choice. Susan and Jason's final monogram was a combination of two of the original sketches. We worked up a revised sketch and then finalized the monogram in digital form.

Bay Head Yacht Club Letterpress Wedding Invitations

This is another set from last summer. Bridgin and Ian had a very specific concept in mind when we met last winter to discuss their wedding invitations. A view of the Bay Head Yacht Club from the water was to be the focus, so we first created a pencil sketch of the building outline. A digital line art illustration was then created and split to cover the design of both wedding invitation and rsvp cards. A nautical theme was tied into the corresponding cards  and envelopes in the set, and touches of yellow added to the navy and white color scheme. Milkfed Press printed the beautiful letterpress cards and did a stellar job of getting the illustration to line up on both cards!

Alyssa & David's Blush & Soft Floral Wedding invitation

Here is a wedding invitation set from last September. Alyssa & David requested their first names be hand lettered for their wedding invitation. The lettering served as the focal point of their invitation, with the first letters extracted to make a monogram. The monogram was printed on hangtags, using letterpress and rose gold foil. The rest of the set complemented the foil's warm tone with blush and ecru cards and envelopes, as well as a subtle white and blush rose patterned belly band and envelope liner.
