feeling all the beachy vibes on this balmy november day in philly! this weather has us thinking about our coral pink wedding suite we created for sascha and john’s destination wedding in hawaii. we teamed up with e. danae calligraphy to illustrate this drool-worthy map of maui in watercolor. she also wrote the couple’s names in calligraphy which were shown off in rose gold foil. we love how this color works with the burgundy letterpress wording. we added the soft pink pineapple to the front of the folded details card for some extra tropical flair and tied the package up with natural burgundy twine. we are thrilled with this suite and only wish we could have joined them under the palms in maui!

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!

​from the moment we met elizabeth we learned that her favorite color was emerald green, so it only made sense to use that as the signature color in her invitation suite. elizabeth and edward recently got married this past september at st. thomas of villanova church followed by an elegant reception at appleford estate. we had our talented calligrapher, danica, from the butler’s pantry, hand write the entire invitation, monogram, and titles for the insert cards. her beautiful handwriting was letterpressed as an oversized invitation combined with digitally printed insert cards on matching cotton stock. we adorned the invitation with laurels and leaves to lend to the natural beauty of the estate’s gardens. we used a beautiful photo of the appleford’s boxwood maze for the front of the reply postcard. all of the pieces were bundled together with a billowy white silk ribbon bow. we also worked with elizabeth and edward to create some of their day of materials such as their program and thank you notes. wishing these two many years of happiness!

we are reminiscing about our time spent at the shore this summer…taylor and thomas were married this past june at the stately shore deal golf and country club. taylor requested a stylish suite that struck a balance between beautiful and fun. the invitations were printed using shiny gold foil and navy letterpress to capture a touch of the nautical vibe they were seeking. the reply card was a retro jersey shore postcard inspired by the couple’s favorite destination. the website tag was printed on a metallic gold paper with a half hole punch to mimic a ride ticket for the infamous boardwalk rides. the collection was bundled together with a gold and natural twine and mailed out in navy envelopes addressed with gold calligraphy.

work wednesday: morgan + ezekiel.

morgan and ezekiel tied the knot this past december with a destination wedding in tabernash, colorado just before the holiday season. their venue, the devil’s thumb ranch, which sits just below the breathtaking rocky mountains, proved to be the perfect backdrop for their big day and acted as a source of inspiration for their invitations. their oversized 6×9 invite combined an array of earthy colors and charming details, such as a black letterpress and angled handwriting by calligrapher danica butler. the invites were then enhanced by strategically placed touches of gold upon the edges, foiled names, and guest addressing. along with an online rsvp info card and a watercolor map of the couple’s story, also painted by danica, the invites were tied together with gold silk ribbon and wedding date tag before being shipped out in dark berry envelopes to their loved ones. we are pleased with the completion of this project and wish morgan and zeke a wonderful life together!

for her twenty fifteen card, alison conklin had honeycombs on her mind! we designed a coral and teal duplexed photo card that was bursting with letterpress polygons and fun facts from the family’s year in review. these square cards were mailed in bright, coral envelopes which were lined with a patterned liner featuring the family’s first names. victoria, of design house of moira, hand addressed each envelope in white ink using a beautiful thick brush stroke. these may be our favorite conklin greetings to date!

work wednesday: colleen + anthony.



colleen and anthony will exchange their vows this october at the maris stella church, followed by a reception at the windrift in avalon, new jersey. the couple wanted their package to feel like the natural beauty of the seashore, so we used muted colors and patterns of gray driftwood and natural seagrass. the invite is a soft gray and ocean blue letterpress. the reply postcard features a painted water color picture of a lifeguard’s boat on the front, with a vintage postcard design on the back. the front of the details card features a custom map of avalon with points of interests and venues highlighted. the pieces were bundled together with natural jute twine displaying a circular, wooden tag, engraved with the couple’s monogram. they were mailed in a warm gray envelope and hand addressed in sky blue ink by ashley wren of hello bird. we had a blast working with colleen, as well as her very creative planner, sara murray of confetti & co. we are currently having a ball working on her day of materials and cannot wait to share those goodies with you!

work wednesday: colleen + daniel.




colleen and daniel celebrated their nuptials back in june at saint rita of cascia church with an elegant reception at the bellevue in center city, philadelphia. colleen requested a formal design that coordinated with the look of her invitation suite. we achieved this by printing the menu and escort cards printed on a white metallic stock to give them a little shimmer. the guest names were beautifully hand-written in a deep plum ink on the silver escort card envelopes by joe giampaolo. their programs were large, double-sided, letterpress printed on double-thick cover stock. we hope colleen and daniel’s wedding was everything they wanted it to be and more!

work wednesday: vanessa + alexander.

vanessa and alexander were married in june at glen foerd on the delaware, a waterfront estate in philadelphia. this couple loved their classic style and asked that we create an invitation package that was traditional but allowed their personalities to shine through. vanessa loved polka dots, so of course we found a way to include those! their stacked suite included a letterpress invitation with a fabulous poppy red and subtle dot pattern. their rsvp card was a postcard style complete with a vintage photo of the riverfront. we also had fun designing a large custom map for their details card. the package was wrapped with a gorgeous silk teal ribbon and finished with a custom die cut tag with their wedding date. these special deliveries arrived to guests in ivory envelopes hand addressed in crisp black ink by danica from the butler’s pantry. we wish these newlyweds a lifetime of happiness!
