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.
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.
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.
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.
