this pretty much sums up last weekend for me! the dance studio wear i teach held it’s annual recital — saturday + sunday, 5 shows! it’s a whirlwind, but such a great time. besides teaching hip hop, i design our teacher shirts every year! we have them printed by our buddies at awesome dudes printing in philly — they are the bomb!

merilyn and nick tied the knot last fall at the charming hollyhedge estate in new hope, pennsylvania. they celebrated their nuptials surrounded by lush gardens which we captured in the design and patterns of their suite. we just loved working with this couple, from their save the dates all the way through their wedding day materials. we even created two different sets! one in english and one in spanish. their letterpress invitation was typeset with a combination of hand-written style fonts in a deep navy on a crisp cotton cover stock. they opted for an rsvp postcard and a folded details card with a custom illustrated map featuring various venues surrounding the new hope area. all pieces were stacked and wrapped with a soft white linen and natural suede twine. the suite was topped with a fuchsia website tag. these little bundles arrived to their guests in navy, glitter-lined envelopes hand addressed in white ink by victoria, of design house of moira.

in addition, we designed their wedding programs { fully equipped with a tissue for their guests’ happy tears }, a mad-libs inspired card for wedding guests to fill out during the reception. we even designed custom tote bags for their hotel guests. merilyn and nick we wish you all the best in your new life together!

carly and marco tied the knot last weekend in charleston, north carolina. they were surrounded by their family and friends as they recited their vows beside the water at the historic rice mill. their suite began with their save the date postcard, with custom pineapple monogram {the ultimate symbol of southern hospitality} and a playful, illustrated map of downtown charleston.

their invitations were one of our favorite suites to design to date. it completely captures the spirit of charleston! complete with a rose gold foil and sage green letterpress invitation and digitally printed rsvp postcard and rehearsal dinner invitation. all of these pieces were held neatly in a custom laser cut pineapple pocket folder {omg our favorite part!!} and wrapped with one strand of natural jute twine. we hope carly and marco had an amazing wedding and wish nothing but the best for them as they begin their new life together!

2017 national stationery show.

loveleigh-invitations-national-stationery-show-nyc-2017 copy

these photos are just a sampling of our faves from the thousands of incredible vendors that attended this year’s national stationery show. we just loved chatting it up with the creatives there and came home with millions of ideas. in case you were wondering…hand lettering is here to stay and pizza slice illustrations are on everything! everything.

we had a blast in nyc…stayed overnight at the designer friendly, but teeny tiny pod 51 hotel. enjoyed a long happy hour on the lush rooftop of gallow green with our friends from postable. and ended our night with the biggest chocolate peanut butter mouse pie sundae at serendipity 3 { sorry no pics of that, we ate it too fast! } then woke up the next day to go see more stationery all over again. doesn’t get much better than that!
