loveleigh’s latest: rhys + jayme.

we’ve been quiet since the holidays, but coming at you strong with these breathtaking shots by will reid photo of our favorite wedding of 2019. we fan girls had the honor to work with rhys hoskins, philadelphia phillies first baseman, and his super sweet fiance jayme on their wedding stationery. they were married in november beneath the towering pines surrounding the ritz carlton lake tahoe, california. they wanted to be close to their family and friends in california where they fell in love in high school. rhys and jayme requested their invitation suite match the natural serene setting as well as their casual personalities. we printed a watercolor wash in the shape of lake tahoe behind the invitation wording which was pressed in slate blue. we added a punch of color to the reply postcard with vibrant watercolor painted trees and lake water. their folded details card held a custom map inside listing their venues and favorite things to do in the area like hiking and wine tasting. the suite was bundled with ivory jute twine and mailed out in a slate blue envelope with white wax seal stamped with an ‘H’. we also worked on a few day of materials including these curly escort cards that sat perfectly on guests’ champagne glasses. cheers to these high-school sweehearts and one of the most beloved couples in philadelphia!!

jessica and gavin exchanged their vows last month at the courtyard boston downtown. jessica requested two things…lavender and lace. we love the use of blind deboss for textures such as lace and used that technique on the invitation with lavender and charcoal gray letterpress. the rsvp postcard featured the boston skyline with lacy background. we created a custom map of downtown boston, featuring their venues along with must-see icons like the famous bar, cheers. then wrapped the cards all up with lace and bakers twine with monogram tag. we just love the monochromatic palette and romantic feel of this suite!

angela + matthew were married last weekend at st. augustine’s church followed by a reception at the 19th century estate, knowlton mansion, ending with a party on the rooftop of hotel monaco. we captured the vibe of their wedding day, the cottage-style venue and their adorable pet in this sweet package. we used this leafy laurel pattern throughout their wedding materials and especially love how it looks pressed without ink into the invitation. illustrator extraordinaire, mandy curtis, of myrtle and lloyd painted the mansion which became the cover to their rsvp postcard. we created a custom map for their details card highlighting their points of interest for the day. the cards were bundled up with a burlap twine and custom monogram tag, all sealed inside an envelope with custom postage to match. we love capturing a couple’s personality with paper and had so much fun working with this team!

chelsea and christopher will be married this spring at the downtown club in philadelphia. this couple requested a timeless wedding invitation inspired by classic cursive, italic serifs and airy white space. the invitation was letterpress in charcoal gray ink on thick cranes lettra stock. the reply card and details card were printed digitally on coordinating paper. we created a custom map of philadelphia which was displayed on the back of the details card. the invitation suite was tied together with a delicate blush silk ribbon knot and sent out in to guests in white envelopes. such a crisp and elegant look!

we are really feeling this moody palette of cool and dusty blues on this snowy day! sarah + seth requested a modern, simplistic suite that was all about color, inspired from a beloved shirt of theirs! these guys will be wed at the newest and coolest urban locations in the city, the fitler club. the invitation was letterpress in two ink colors, eggplant and slate blue. the reply card was a light-hearted madlibs response with a bold geometric pattern on the back. we placed the numerical wedding date large on the front of the small details card with website info on the back. we printed the after party details on frosted vellum to make it feel like a little secret was slipped inside the package. we bundled the suite together in multi-colored-dip-dyed jute twine for some added color and texture, then placed them in the gray envelopes, lined in dusty blue. we are thrilled with the way everything works together in this suite!

shannon and nicholas said i do on a beautiful crisp winter day at the manor house at commonwealth, in horsham, pennsylvania. shannon loved the idea of mixing natural textures with a traditional letterpress invitation. a deep burgandy lace covered rsvp postcard sat atop and was triple wrapped with delicate ivory linen, navy silk ribbon and natural jute twine. the suite was completed with the addition of not one, but two tags. these rustic bundles were mailed to guests in ivory envelopes and hand-addressed in classic navy ink by danica, from the butler’s pantry.

we carried a few of their design elements through to their wedding day as well! we designed signage, a large seating chart and a mad libs inspired thank you card, for their guests to have some fun while eating dinner!

we wish these newlyweds the happiest life together! love ya shan!!

jaclyn was a design intern for loveleigh years ago who came back into our lives to collaborate on an invitation design for her own wedding. she and brandon were married at the end of the summer at the lakehouse inn. jaclyn wanted an airy, modern, typography-focused suite that also felt timeless. their invitation was letterpress in slate blue with blind deboss details. the reply and detail cards were printed digitally and stacked on top of the invitation. the stacked cards were enclosed in a milky vellum enclosure, we just love how the tonal image of the venue peeks through. the vellum was tied closed with a hand-dyed gray silk ribbon and white wax monogram seal marked with a swirly ‘S’ that represented both of their last names. it’s always fun working with fellow designer on a project, especially something as meaningful as their wedding invitations.

becca and stan celebrated their summer nuptials during a ceremony at christ church, one of the oldest churches in philadelphia. keeping with the style of their save the dates and garden bridal shower invitations, this romantic suite was layered with and invitation, reply card, reception card and details card. the letterpress invitation was printed with a bold navy and beautiful burnished lilac. becca loved using a mix of handwritten and traditional serif fonts. soft washes of lilac watercolor were added to both the reply and details card. we wrapped these beautiful bundles in the most luxurious hand-dyed silk ribbon { all the way from lithuania! } they were sent to guests in navy envelopes that were hand addressed in white ink by danica, from the butler’s pantry.

lastly, we carried their design through to their wedding day! we designed custom letterpress thank you cards, menus for each table and fan programs { since the church had no ac! } which were complete with silhouettes of the bridal party! we wish these newlyweds a lifetime of love and beautiful memories!

hey! we’re back at it and have so many new suites to share. this was one of our favorites from the spring! audra and ed were married at the glen manor house — a french chateau in portsmouth, rhode island. audra, a self-proclaimed old soul, requested an invitation that felt like a delicate bundle of notes with ribbons. the invitation was letterpressed in deep emerald, stamped with gold foil and finished with deckled edges. the extraordinary facade was illustrated by mandy of myrtle and lloyd and became the cover to the reply postcard. the small detail booklet featured their custom W monogram with hand painted laurels and was polished off with gold cord. these pieces were wrapped with a frosted vellum enclosure and sealed with a lavender silk and a genuine antique gold wax seal. the suite was mailed out to guests in a black forest envelope with white guest addressing. we just love how an old world invitation can still feel so fresh and new!
