Luxe Gold and Glitter

Colleen and Dan’s invitation design  plays off of the drama of their Save the Dates. A sliver of sparkling glitter bumps up the glam, along with shimmery gold and crystal metallic card and envelope stocks. We found a handmade rice paper with gold shimmery florals that worked perfectly as a belly band design.

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.

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Vibrant Romantic Florals Pop on a Navy Background

Romantic, watercolor florals provide the backdrop for the envelope liner and belly band in this sweet invitation suite. Custom hand lettering adds a modern touch to the organic look.

Classic Wedding Invitations with Newport, Rhode Island Views

A classic Newport Rhode Island-inspired invitation suite, printed on crisp, white cotton stock using  gold and navy thermography, were paired with gold metallic envelopes. Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge and Castle Hill Lighthouse illustrations represented the view from Ocean Cliff, where the reception was held.

Old-School Glamour in Hoboken

Caitlin and Mike met while working in California and wanted to find a way to include that detail in their invitation suite. They chose the subtle reference of the California license plate font as the script. Small touches of red paired well with the silver, black and white color palette. A nod to Hoboken's own, Frank Sinatra, was used as a reception card illustration. A small letter "G" was placed on the front of the vintage microphone.

Dog Bride and Groom Save the Dates

Brittany and Zeeshan's adorable dogs Mellie and Daisy were so much fun to paint and made for a truly unique save the date design.
