loveleigh’s latest: atlas’ baby shower.


we had a blast working on takia and jahri’s rum bottle save the dates and boarding pass invitations for their bahamian wedding a few years ago. so of course we jumped at the chance to work with them on their baby shower invitations for their son, atlas. the theme of the shower was a playful combination of all things maps and scrolls { to go with his amazing name } and oh! the places you’ll go, by dr. seuss! takia and jahri are partners with one hope wine so she wanted to incorporate their company’s mini glitter champagne bottles into the invitation. they mixed a custom baby blue glitter for their sweet little babe. we designed a custom invitation label for the glittery bottle, it was then placed in a cylindrical wooden bentwood box, filled with bright blue paper shred and fuzzy yellow pom poms and tied with the leather strap and finished with a paper luggage tag with atlas’ custom monogram. these were sent to guests in white shipping boxes complete with custom mailing labels.

in addition to the bottles, we designed a matching paper version. the invitation was a larger version of the label with a translucent map overlay. everything was bundled together with blue and white bakers twine with monogram luggage tag and sent to guests in bright blue envelopes with custom mailing labels. we even found vintage fox in socks postage stamps!!

we always love working with takia and jahri and wish them all the best as a new family of three!

loveleigh’s latest: cinco de aidan.

we are back with what may have been one of our favorite projects of the year! aidan max was called to the torah on may 5th, aka, cinco de aidan! we gave a hint of the theme and what was to come in his save the date, but now it was time for a fiesta! papel picado { mexican cut paper party banners } became our inspiration for his laser cut wood veneer invitation. the ornate walnut square invite was adhered to a cobalt blue half pocket. the detail of the cut on the wood was just incredible, even down to the mini sombrero! three inserts { rsvp postcard, details card and kid pick up card } designed with accent colors of green and grey all stacked neatly in the back pocket. the rsvp postcard was even adorned with a custom monogram stamp. this little party arrived to guests in charcoal grey mailing envelopes with round mailing labels and finished with succulent postage!

holy guacomole, the fun did not stop with the invitations, we carried everything over to the day of the celebration. we created color coded menus for their different food stations, signage for their tequila luge and signature cocktail, custom cocktail napkins, water bottles, thank you notes and even escort card flags that were pierced through a lime slice which sat on a festive, miniature shot glass . . . how cute is that?!

after two mitzvah celebrations { yep, we worked with aidan’s sister, brooke }, we will totally miss working with this family. they are master party planners who never leave out a single detail!

loveleighs’ latest: samantha + dirk.


samantha and dirk will be married in just a few short weeks at the stunning washington memorial chapel in valley forge, pennsylvania. the celebration will then continue at their own 100 year old farm house that they have been restoring themselves. we couldn’t wait to begin working on this suite. they loved eclectic fonts, overlapping patterns and vibrant colors. they opted for a vintage poster style letterpress invitation with a palette of purple, orange and teal. their rsvp postcard featuring an etching of their farm house and folded details cards were stacked on top and held together with orange bakers twine. the suite was completed with a website tag and mailed to guests in beet purple envelopes. this is another fave for 2017!

mindy and chris welcomed their precious little poppy claire into this world in may. in addition to their new bundle of joy, they were also planning a cross country move to los angeles. talk about a life change!! so they decided to combine both announcements in a bright + cheery letterpress package. the letterpress birth announcement was printed in a fresh poppy red on a bright white double thick cotton paper stock. poppy’s adorable photo (shot by kevin monko) was attached with a patterned washi tape. the moving card was digitally printed and finished with the line say yes to new adventures. the cards were mailed out in a transparent vellum envelope filled with confetti and wrapped with a matching address label. this happy little package was inspired by this gorgeous hand lettered blanket, from how joyful, that mindy received as a gift. we are so excited to share this package, it makes us so happy. we wish this new little family the best of luck in la la land!!

work wednesday: conklin family holiday card.

we’re excited to finally share alison conklin’s family holiday card! she wanted to go in a non-traditional route with colors and style. of course she had an awesome photo to use of her boys tossing paper snow confetti! alison gave us words of gratitude that we used as a wall paper framing the offset photo. the letterpress inks we chose were influenced by the boys’ outfits. we used a knit chevron pattern as an envelope liner and letterpressed her return address in a translucent white onto the navy envelope flap. the envelope was finished off with a fun wrap around address label.

work wednesday: sandy + anthony.

a passport style save the date for sandy and anthony’s fun destination wedding at beaches turks and caicos. sandy requested a colorful save the date that would get guests excited to join them in the caribbean next october to celebrate. we created an eight-page passport complete with rounded corners and passport stamps. the pages contain resort and flight booking information along with the important fact that halloween will be celebrated there! the save the date was mailed in a see-through glassine envelope with a bold wrap around address label.

work wednesday: katherine + casey.

anchors away! katherine + casey are getting married at the gorgeous mill reef club in tropical antigua this memorial day weekend. you may remember their fun travel guide-inspired save the date we posted in january. we carried over the caribbean blues and greens along with the passport stamp monogram onto their invite package. we achieved the overall ‘laid back vacation’ look with a mix of handwritten fonts, hand drawn lines and a 2-sided playful tag. the invite and rsvp postcard were tied together with a chevron-patterned ribbon and inserted into a kraft envelope with wrap around label. we are excited to begin the destination day of materials this week!

work wednesday: jahri + takia.

jahri (an offensive guard for the new orleans saints!) + takia will be getting married this june in the beautiful islands of the bahamas. with the assistance of their wedding planner, gina sole, they have planned an elegant wedding with a color palette of black, gold, and ivory with touches of blush pink. they wanted to wow their guests with a save the date that got them super excited for their destination wedding. takia suggested we incorporate a bottle of rum to hint at the island wedding. we customized the bottle with a label-style save the date where all of the information besides the wedding destination was included. an ombre silk ribbon was used to tie a miniature folded tag to the top of the bottle with a scratch-off inside. guests had to scratch the gold circle with a coin to reveal where the wedding will take place. we secured the glass bottle inside a small wooden crate filled with shredded pink paper. the lid was silk screened by awesome dudes printing with the couple’s monogram for that extra special personal touch.

we designed an alternative flat save the date card for their guests who do not drink alcohol. this was printed on metallic ivory paper, wrapped with ribbon and the scratch off tag and mailed in a black envelope with wrap around label.

we are beginning their invitations now and can’t wait to share these beauties as well!
