work wednesday: anna + kevin.


anna and kevin will be saying their i do’s this weekend at the ashford estate in allentown, new jersey. the very formal and european style venue set the tone for the design of their sophisticated suite. their 5.5″ x 8.5″ letterpress invitation was printed on a luxurious ecru cotton paper in antique gold and charcoal gray. we adorned the top of the invitation with a custom monogram and used traditional fonts and flourishes throughout all of the cards. the reply and accommodations card were printed on a coordinating ivory metallic sheet to add a little sparkle. the invitation was wrapped in a delicate gold silk ribbon and metallic tag with the couple’s wedding date. the invites were mailed in a matching ecru envelope and hand addressed by the bride’s friend. we are currently finishing up a few day of pieces for the soon-to-be mr. and mrs!

work wednesday: noa’s bat mitzvah.


noa became a bat mitzvah in april at the philadelphia cricket club. as an admirer of elegance, glamour and fashion she requested a feminine palette of tiffany blue and peony pink with touches of a damask pattern. the theme for the evening was noa & co. inspired by the ever so classic tiffany & co. the invitation, ceremony card and reply postcard were all printed in full color at different sizes, then bundled up as a little present with white satin ribbon and gift tag, our little spin on the iconic tiffany box. coordinating address labels dressed up her crisp white envelopes. noa’s coordinating ceremony program included both hebrew and english translations for the service. we finished the look with a custom noa & co. tiffany blue bag that held the children’s hooded sweatshirt favors. we hope noa and family truly enjoyed their special day!

jillian and dave, who wed last june at the congregation rodeph shalom before celebrating amongst family and friends at the please touch museum, desired a balance of elegance and quirk for their invitation suite. their two color letterpress invites were entirely eggplant purple except for the pop of a chartreuse green bow tie indicating guests to sport their very own green bow ties in honor of the couples’ favorite color! their rsvp postcards were presented in madlibs style and featured an 1876 etching of memorial hall during the world’s fair as a homage to their playful reception venue. but the quirkiest part of their cards, perhaps, were the minute details that were added to show the couple’s personality. an alpaca etching was featured on the kraft paper tags, to represent the unforgettable day that dave proposed to jillian in front of a live alpaca! there is also a mini alpaca hidden in the postcard image along with custom monogrammed laurels. their suite was tied together with a chartreuse silk ribbon and tag announcing their website before being mailed out in pale gray envelopes digitally printed with guests’ addresses. we are thrilled with the completion of this suite, and wish this couple a lifetime of fun and fulfillment together!

nassim and andrew are set to tie the knot later this month at st. ceceilia’s church in boston, massachusetts. their reception, which will take place at the luxurious lenox hotel, acted as a source of inspiration for their desired traditionally and classically elegant wedding invitation suites. by combining navy blue and gold, their two color letterpress invitations were set alongside digitally printed inserts. their suite also included a reception card, accommodations card, and rsvp postcard that feature a black and white photo of the lenox hotel marquee. they also requested a custom map complete with their venues and things to do during their fun-filled wedding weekend. we then placed everything within an ornate ivory, metallic pocket folder with gold flourishing before tying it off with a custom monogrammed tag. their suite was then shipped out in a gold metallic envelope, lined with light gold, and hand addressed in navy ink by joe giampaolo. we’re thrilled with the completion of their wedding suite, and hope their celebration is filled with nothing but love and joy!

mandi and zachary tied the knot late last october with a magical outdoor tent wedding in california. the couple, who’s big day took place on the groom’s family farm, wanted a more modern and earthy style for their invitations. with a color palette of neutral grays, whites, and fun pops of coral, the stacked invitation included a letterpress invite in gray ink. the invitations featured details such as a blind deboss woodgrain pattern, digitally printed inserts placed upon cotton stock, and also a custom map added to enhance wedding weekend details. the couple’s dog griffin was even featured upon the front of the card for a more personal touch. we hope their wedding was filled with nothing but love, laughter, and happiness!
