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!

we spent saturday afternoon meeting with fabulous brides at terrain‘s bridal open house + bhldn trunk show. we were surrounded by the natural beauty of their garden shed which we shared with bhldn, terrain decorating services, bario neal jewelry, calista grand salon, maggpie vintage rentals, the midnighters band, weckerly’s ice cream, aromaflage fragrance, and we laugh we love photography. brides could grab a delicious (not to mention beautiful) bite, try on stunning bhldn gowns and get a taste of what their event would look like at terrain. we shared our freshest invites and encouraged brides to dabble in watercolor at our diy make + take table to create their own custom thank you notes. we ended our day with a spritzer, some of their famous clay pot bread and a little shopping. it was such a great day and we can’t wait to work with all of ladies (and gents) we met!
in honor of st. patrick’s day we’d love to share these invitations we created for erin’s bridal shower held at the tuscany house hotel among the vineyards of the renault winery. we designed a lucky-in-love mark for the shower stationery since the event was held so close to both valentine’s and st. patrick’s day. it was also a nod to the bride who adores all things irish! we added an irish lace detail to the front and vintage illustrations for the entree choices on the back of the invite. the vertical invites were mailed in a metallic gold top open envelope. the lucky-in-love theme was carried throughout the day with green centerpieces topped with pink felt hearts and a scratch-off lottery ticket favor!
a simple and feminine invitation for my (chey’s) daughter’s baptism that was held this past summer. the invitation was printed in coral ink onto extra thick pearl cranes lettra paper. each invite was tied with a wide ivory silk bow and mailed out in a matching pearl envelope that was hand addressed in mixed fonts by danica, of the butler’s pantry.
our ‘classy’ orange and black letterpress invitations for northampton’s forty-five year high school reunion. the organizer of the event reached out to us requesting something that would catch the attention of former students that was both sophisticated and fun. we achieved this simple academic look with the school’s colors, collegiate inspired fonts, dashed lines, and flag banners. the reply card was paired with a top-open manilla envelope similar to those old report card envelopes we all used to receive. the invite and reply were inserted into a clear vinyl vip pass holder that was attached to an orange and black lanyard. we hope the class of 1968 has an unforgettable time reminiscing the good ol’ days this weekend!
we’re delighted to share these black letterpress and silver foil wedding invitations for our couple anne + randy getting married at the end of october at the franklin institute in philadelphia. the bride and groom requested an elegant, but hip package that hinted at old hollywood glamour. they thought stars would be nice touch since they will be saying their vows beneath the glittery constellations of the museum’s planetarium. we love the balance of the all black lettering surrounded by the playful metallic stardust. the invite, reply card, and weekend event card were held together with a burgundy silk bow, which was tied high on the invite to mimic the empire-waisted bow on anne’s wedding gown. the envelope was lined with a matching burgundy liner to add another pop of color and warmth. the return addresses were letterpressed in black ink onto the envelopes and hand addressed by danica of the butler’s pantry. we designed a monogram for their custom postage which will be carried throughout their wedding day materials which we are currently wrapping up! excited to share more of this spectacular wedding!
we brought you samantha + christopher’s cheery save the date back in november. they decided to tone down the color palette to black and amethyst for their wedding invitation. they wanted to keep things a bit more formal for their evening affair at the loews hotel. we still included the chevron pattern, mixed fonts and a few playful icons to match both the bride + groom’s fun personalities.
the large 6″ x 9″ purple pocket folder held the letterpress invite which pronounces the date of the event graphically with oversized numbers bleeding off the edge. the rehearsal invite, reply postcard, and direction/accommodation card all stacked neatly inside the right pocket. the package was held together with a simple square tag displaying the couple’s monogram. the suite was tucked into a black envelope and wrapped with an address label and stamped with coordinated custom postage. we’re very excited to share their fun variety of day of materials with you soon!
a fun-spirited and sparkly wedding shower invitation for alex. this bride’s maid of honor came to us with a request for a non-traditional bridal shower invite for a non-traditional bride. we achieved this with a horizontal design, mix of typography, and bold palette of eggplant purple, brown and fuchsia. this was tucked into a metallic envelope and wrapped with an address label with the surprise ‘we heart alex’ phrase on the back flap.
