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.

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!

loveleigh’s latest: meghann + stephen.

meghann + stephen tied the knot last weekend in the city of brothery love! their ceremony was held at old st. mary’s church followed by a celebration at the historic 18th century powel house. meghann fell in love with our signature philly save the date, but wanted to formalize  the fonts and replace the postcard layout with a card and envelope. it’s refreshing to see this design in patriotic colors, perfect for the upcoming memorial day weekend ahead!

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!

gd50_event_uarts_swiss_design_loveleigh_invitations_

this past weekend we celebrated GD50, a commemoration of 50 years of graphic design at our college, the university of the arts. chey was asked to party chair the event with dee by her side to design and set up for the big day. it was an intense 18 months of design and collaboration with fellow alumni to make it all happen…a full weekend of exhibits, workshops, symposium and party. the party was a success…guests were greeted outside by rumble (a bucket-drum ensemble) and entered into a red-lit sixties cocktail space where they enjoyed a beer tasting by st. benjamin’s brewing co. after cocktail hour, they entered into main event space for dinner, which was glittered with cafe lights and a mix of red and white paper lanterns. entertainment for the night included sword fighting and a quartet interspersed with activities such as live screen printing, memory wall and photo booth. our role in the event was such an honor and it was overwhelming to see all of our past professors and reconnect with new and old alumni. WE ARE HERE.

as the weather warms up we are currently crushing on natural branches, ferns and wildflowers. this brings us back to samantha and brian’s big day which was held at front & palmer in philadelphia. wild stems was instrumental in infusing the room with energy and life with these whimsical arrangements as well as creating our favorite part — that beautifully lit canopy that hung over the aisle!
