Wedding at The Hamilton Manor

A unique twist on the wedding venue illustration trend - barn doors that open to reveal the invitation. The rustic barn doors at The Hamilton Manor are a gorgeous backdrop for wedding photos. Captured here in watercolor, the "doors" are held in place by a vellum belly band with the couple's first initials. The rsvp card features a watercolor of the entire barn venue, from a distance.

Keara & Erik's Watercolor Swan "G" Monogram and Floral Invitations

Keara and Erik commissioned a watercolor monogram for their married initial "G" in the shape of a swan. The Mill Lakeside Manor is known for its swans, who can be seen swimming on the lake most of the year. The monogram was used for their pastel and floral wedding invitaions. Covid-19 caused their original wedding plans to change, and then their second date to be postponed. They had a small, backyard wedding with family, and the reception party will (hopefully) be held later this year.

Historic Philadelphia Wedding Venues

Soft pencil sketch venue illustrations are the centerpiece of Nicole and Stephen's invitation design. The nuptials are now postponed until August due to the pandemic, but hopefully months from now, vows will happily be exchanged at Old St. Joseph's Church in Philadelphia, the oldest Catholic church in the city, dating from 1733. We used the beautiful and historic wrought iron gates of St. Joseph's, which lead into the church courtyard, as inspiration for the rsvp card.

The celebration will continue at the Center City venue, Ballroom at the Ben, with a spacious dance floor and gorgeous architectural details. The venue is most famous for its backdrop in the Academy Award-nominated film "Silver Linings Playbook."
