Wedding Map Gift

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. The bride’s mother had the monogram engraved on a custom cake knife, which we thought was a beautiful, thoughtful gift. Additionally, the couple used the monogram as a dance floor spotlight.

Rumson Country Club Save the Dates

It's always fun to do wedding venue illustrations, and this dramatic entryway to the Rumson Country Club was no exception. The illustration was created using pencil and watercolors. Lindsay and Blake will be married at the Club in May, and we designed this save the date card for their wedding.

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.
