jill and william professed their love beneath the PA-NJ bridge at the lambertville station this past may. this location meant a lot to them as a couple originally from each of the bordering states. the historic seafoam green new hope-lambertville bridge had to make an appearance into the suite. mandy, of myrtle and lloyd, painted a beautiful, custom watercolor illustration of the bridge which we had printed on translucent vellum. we used this artwork as an overlay on top of the invitation suite which allowed some of the invitation elements to peek through. the suite was finished with a playful criss cross wrapping with natural twine. the romantic large, loopy names on the invitation were the handiwork of mary ellen, of calligraphy by mary ellen, which were also used on the custom return address stamp. the invitations arrived to wedding guests in navy envelopes hand addressed with rose gold metallic ink also by mary ellen. we loved collaborating with our friendors to create such a personal invitation!

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!

caitlin + joseph’s timeless and distinguished wedding invitation suite for their formal wedding at st. patricks church, followed by a reception at the union league, philadelphia. we used navy letterpress and gold foil on ecru cranes lettra stock for the main invitation. the reply and details card were printed in full color on ivory metallic stock. we added a custom map of philadelphia on the back of the details card and vintage etching of the union league to the back of the reception card. the insert cards were tucked into a navy flourished half pocket and wrapped with a metallic champagne belly band and custom monogram tag. the invitation was mailed out in a navy envelope also lined in champagne, addressed in gold ink and sealed with an antique gold liberty bell wax seal. we love the rich layers of this invitation and how it truly evokes the polished spirit of the union league.

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!!

carly and marco tied the knot last weekend in charleston, north carolina. they were surrounded by their family and friends as they recited their vows beside the water at the historic rice mill. their suite began with their save the date postcard, with custom pineapple monogram {the ultimate symbol of southern hospitality} and a playful, illustrated map of downtown charleston.

their invitations were one of our favorite suites to design to date. it completely captures the spirit of charleston! complete with a rose gold foil and sage green letterpress invitation and digitally printed rsvp postcard and rehearsal dinner invitation. all of these pieces were held neatly in a custom laser cut pineapple pocket folder {omg our favorite part!!} and wrapped with one strand of natural jute twine. we hope carly and marco had an amazing wedding and wish nothing but the best for them as they begin their new life together!

check out the exploding box in action!


when brooke and her mother came to us last year with visions of an out-of-the-box invitation suite for her bat mitzvah, we couldn’t wait to get the design process under way. brooke had a love for fashion and loved the idea of incorporating different patterns, fabrics and textiles in the invitation. we loved her non-traditional, bold color palette of black, white, maroon with pops of turquoise. their “exploding box” invitation was layered with brandy melville inspired black and white striped canvas fabric and square maroon cover stock screen printed with black and turquoise ink. custom pockets on both sides held the details for the celebration, as well as the rsvp postcard (complete with personalized brooke postage). the black boxes were wrapped with a vibrant turquoise suede wrap and finished with her B squared monogram (since her initials were B.B.). they arrived to guests in white square boxes with custom address labels which wrapped around the box. when the lids were pulled off of these boxes, the invitations were literally out-of-the-box!

we didn’t stop there! for her amazing party, we designed mints, water bottles, and hand-sanitizers all continuing with the B theme. tables were dressed with custom menus and bold patterned table numbers. as guests entered the hotel, they were greeted with a beautiful display of white marble escort cards hand written in black ink by ashley of hello, bird, with a few B inspirational tiles sprinkled throughout! this family truly knows how to throw a fabulous celebration and we were honored to be a party of it!

after designing rachel + ben’s save the dates, they came back for their invitations! the couple wed on the 22nd of october at the princeton university chapel followed by a reception at the cherry valley country club. they wanted to carry over the modern, clean, geometric patterns and their fresh palette of black, white, green + gray. the whole suite was digitally printed. the modern invite was backed by a crisp black half pocket which held their stacked oversized rsvp postcard and folded details card. ​we also designed a custom map personalized with two little squirrels at the couple’s request! everything was tied neatly together with black and white baker’s twine and finished with a custom monogram tag. the package was mailed to their guests in a grey envelope addressed in black ink.

katherine and sean celebrated their wedding this past may at st. john the evangelist church in philadelphia followed by an elegant affair at the union league. the overall aesthetic of their invitation suite was inspired by katherine’s grandmother’s own wedding invitation. we used a delicate cursive typeface to mimic the wispy handwriting from the vintage stationery suite. the invitation was tastefully engraved with navy ink on a duplexed felt stock with painted gold edging. the reply card, reception card, details card with a custom map of the city, and belly band were printed flat in full color. katherine asked for a timeless monogram to use throughout her wedding materials, so we added some vintage romance with the laurels. we also had the pleasure of designing the couples day of materials. the vintage touches continued onto the wedding wish cards for the bride and groom inspired by an old-fashioned telegram. the program, menu, and escort cards were designed to mat​ch the invite suite. we wish this timeless couple a lifetime of happiness!
