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!

stephanie and michael will be having a very chic modern wedding this fall in philadelphia. to set the tone, we printed their save the date wording in white on a square piece of frosted pliable acrylic. we lined the gun metal gray metallic envelopes with rich black velvet. the guest and return addresses were printed in white as well, to compliment the save the date. we are crazy about the simplicity of this piece shining bright with all the contrasting textures!

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!

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!
