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!

work wednesday: kelly + nicholas.

kelly + nicholas will be wed this december at the historic columbia station located in downtown phoenixville, pennsylvania. they wanted to send their guests something unique that would give a hint of their venue and wedding style for their save the dates. we designed a vintage-style train ticket using a palette of gold and wisteria and printed on an ivory metallic paper stock. the groom loved the idea of incorporating an old caboose! the save the dates were completed with custom die cutting on both ends to resemble a ticket, placed into a shimmery gold envelope and were wrapped with an address label. we are looking forward to designing their invitations!

work wednesday: lauren + dennis.

lauren + dennis will be married this coming may at the luxurious beaches turks & caicos resort villages & spa (dee will be attending!!) they loved their passport-inspired save the dates and wanted to continue the travel theme through to the invitations. using the same elements and caribbean color palette of aquas, pinks and corals, we created a custom boarding pass package. we designed an invitation and a perforated rsvp postcard which were mailed in a tropical orange colored pocket. everything was finished with twine and a corresponding luggage tag complete with a mini squirrel for the groom (for those of you that remember from their save the date post!) everything was mailed in matching orange envelopes with custom address labels. dee will definitely be sharing images from this wedding!

work wednesday: bridget + tom.

it’s snowing here! what a perfect day to share this mitten save the date for bridget + tom’s winter nostalgia themed wedding at terrain this coming january. the inspiration came from classic golden books (a childhood favorite) and norwegian knit patterns that bridget brought in during her consultation. we combined those elements to create a memorable save the date for her guests to hang in their home or on the christmas tree for the upcoming wedding. the save the date was printed in full color, then die cut into a fun mitten shape with a hole punch for some old-fashioned cotton-wrapped twine.
