happy 2018!! congrats to all of the newly engaged couples out there! we look forward to connecting and creating with you!

kelly + dario’s waterworks save the date was a crowd favorite last year. there is just something extraordinarily special about having your venue hand painted for your wedding stationery. it seems to be taking the place of the monogram. mandy of myrtle and lloyd, illustrated this iconic philadelphia scene and we printed it in full color on luxe cranes lettra paper with letterpress wording beneath. keep this concept in mind for your own save the date, we are happy to turn any venue into a watercolor keepsake.

dana + matthew were married last weekend at church of christ the king, followed by a reception at the glamorous park savoy estate. dana went for a wintry slate blue color palette accented with branches and berries. we painted a wash of cool blue watercolor on the letterpress invitations to create a handmade luxe look. each guest received a slightly different invitation truly making them one of a kind. the invitation and inserts were tied together with a silvery blue dyed silk ribbon, gold chord and finished with a wooden tag. the bride designed the monogram herself and we engraved it into the wooden circle for a very personal touch. the suite was mailed out in a pale gray envelope with slate blue addressing. we wish these sweet newly weds nothing but the best ahead!!

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!

once upon a time a bride named sarah and a groom named rob planned a dream wedding at a castle. this late 19th century castle is more commonly known as le chateau frontenac in quebec, canada. we hired mandy of myrtle and lloyd to illustrate the luxury resort with it’s green peeks and millions of windows. we love how she captured it’s splendor with those details. the illustration was printed flat on 2 ply cranes lettra and then the save the date information was printed as letterpress. we love this balance of modern clean type with a classic watercolor painting!

throwing it back 7 years to this classic beauty! we designed this kite save the date for michelle + eric’s philadelphia wedding and still love it the day it was printed and assembled! the all gray letterpress kite was tied with a hand dyed sterling silk ribbon and finished off with a silver key. we personally feel that there needs to be more kite-shaped stationery out there in this ben-franklin-lovin’ city!

kelly and dario were recently married at the end of august at the water works, a gorgeous, historic landmark in philadelphia. kelly wanted to incorporate a custom watercolor of the neoclassic venue by myrtle & lloyd that she used in her save the date. we printed the painting on a translucent white vellum and layered it on top of the invitation. the invitation, reply and details card were all printed in charcoal letterpress and blind deboss on cotton cranes lettra. this printing method, along with the pairing of delicate cursive and modern typefaces achieved the couple’s vision of contemporary meets classic. the pieces were bundled neatly with gold cord and mailed out in a coordinating cranes lettra envelope. wishing these two a beautiful life together!

kristen and anthony had their wedding ceremony followed by a formal affair this past weekend at blue bell country club in blue bell, pennsylvania. i {dee} have know kristen since she was about eight years old, she used to be her student teacher at her dance studio! so needless to say, we were thrilled when they wanted to work with us. they had a vision of simplistic elegance for their suite, charcoal and white, with pops of a blush pink. their invitation was a combination of traditional serif and script fonts letterpressed in a deep grey on a crisp white cotton cover stock. their reply card and details card followed suite with the addition of the pale pink. everything was neatly held in a metallic white pocket folder wrapped in a ballet pink ribbon and sealed with a monogram tag. these luxurious suites were mailed to guests in metallic blush pink envelopes. we loved every second of working with this couple and hope they are enjoying aruba!!

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!
