michelle + eric.

michelle + eric were married this past october in philadelphia at the fabulous union league. they wanted their invitation package to have some of the elements from their kite save the dates, with a more formal, elegant feel. playing along with their historic philadelphia theme, we created a wax seal with their monogram that was used to hold a metallic, patterned pocketfolder closed. when you opened the folder, you were welcomed by william penn on their letterpressed invitation. we worked with a fabulous new calligrapher, katie newman, from belles lettres designs. she addressed each envelope with a beautiful, antique script in charcoal ink.

summer garden party.

autumn’s crispy air is just around the corner! here are some bright and cheery photos from a backyard garden party that donna o’brien, of beautiful blooms, threw for friends and family to celebrate the end of summer. we worked with donna to create a relaxed, playful, vintage invite which was letter pressed and tucked into a green envelope. the yellow, navy, and grass green color palette carried over to the food, drink, and dessert menus which hung from overhead umbrellas or wrapped around glass drink canisters. images captured by feehly photography. see more of this perfect picnic on style me pretty!

we (danielle leigh + patrick) were married on saturday, december 5th 2009 at blue bell country club in blue bell, pennsylvania. it was a magical day filled with happiness, love and even some snow!!!! everyone believed the snow was truly meant to be since pat wished and wished for snow the day he proposed, but he never got it…until our wedding day. our ceremony started at 6:30pm, while the snow was still falling outside. seeing it through the windows of the ballroom, with candlelight surrounding us, along with our closest family and friends…it was just perfect.
