maureen and jeffrey were married last month on the waterfront at the historical landmark, water works in philadelphia. they requested that their wedding paper capture the neo-classic romance that the venue resonates while feeling fresh and modern at the same time. we worked with mandy of myrtle and lloyd to create this soft custom watercolor of the waterworks and carried this image throughout their wedding stationery. the painting was printed onto the save the date and completed with letterpress wording. it also became the perfect tag to seal the pocket folder that held the invitation and pretty postage for both the reply and outer envelopes. the invitation was printed with a combination of rose gold foil and charcoal gray letterpress. the insert cards were printed flat and stacked neatly inside a blush pocket. we finished the piece of with a rose gold foiled liner for that extra wow factor! many wishes to one of the nicest couples around!

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!

as virginia residents, one of julie and mark’s favorite places to visit is george washington’s mount vernon. they love the front view of the historic house and wanted to incorporate it into their holiday card with a few additional holiday elements. so we collaborated with the talented mandy holt, of myrtle & lloyd, who brought their festive scene to life complete with christmas trees, snow covered grounds and santa flying into the night sky!

work wednesday: suzanne + jeffrey. part two.




suzanne and jeffrey’s contemporary day of materials coordinated with their invitation suite. the couple requested a welcome note for all of their guests’ hotel welcome bags. it included a custom map with a daily itinerary for when and where the festivities would take place. the couple’s program was vertical with a black wax cord tied around the top for added texture. the menu for the evening was wrapped around the dinner napkin at each place setting, while their customized cocktail napkin featured their golden retriever, tucker in a bowtie. one last touch was a personalized cocktail sign listing drink recommendations by the bride and groom themselves. we are thrilled with the cohesion of these materials and wish this couple and pup a lifetime of happiness!

work wednesday: connelly-newman realty holiday card.

we thought this year’s connelly-newman realty holiday card was perfect to share on this snowy winter day! just like their twenty thirteen card, we partnered with an illustrator to create a custom painting for the front of the card. mandy curtis from myrtle & lloyd painted a cozy stone home glowing with warmth on a cold winter’s night. they selected the poem stopping by woods on a snowy evening, by robert frost, for the interior. the cards were mailed in a vibrant rust colored envelope and sealed with a custom mailing label.

work wednesday: holiday card illustrations.

we love working with illustrators to create a one of a kind piece! we are featuring these two holiday cards together because they both involved custom illustrations. the front of the folded holiday card for connelly-newman realty was illustrated by meg hunt. we were lucky to work with her on bridget + tom’s invite last year and thought she’d be perfect for this commission. the client requested a cozy stone house typical of the main line area in pennsylvania set in a snowy scene. the interior of the card held a poem called winter time written by robert louis stevenson.

liz, a former bride of ours, has an incredible sense of humor and came up with the idea of a naughty santa card for her and her husband to send to their friends. our college friend and incredibly talented illustrator, peter wonsowski took on the job of depicting the jolly man caught in the act!

work wednesday: bridget + tom.

with the wind howling outside today, we thought bridget + tom’s cozy winter illustrated wedding suite would be perfect to share. they will be wed this january at the the fabulous terrain at styer’s in glen mills. for their invitations, the couple wanted to carry over the warm feeling of their mitten save the date and continue with the whimsical inspiration of the golden books. we were able to create their own story with the help of illustrator meg hunt. she created the most beautiful custom illustrations for the invitation, rsvp postcard and accommodation card. each piece had a different wintry scene in the couple’s palette of ivory, brown, rust and red. our favorite part was the adorable portrait of the bride + groom. everything was stacked and held together with our favorite cotton-wrapped twine from angela liguori.
