ashley and rudy will be saying their i do’s in april at the cathedral basilica of saints peter and paul, followed by a reception at the former steak house, union trust in philadelphia. for their save the date, the couple requested a custom map of philadelphia to get their guests excited about their nuptials in their beloved city. we designed a map of center city which included locations for the wedding ceremony, reception, hotels and other attractions in the area. we softened the graphic feel with muted tones and a watercolor wash background. we are super excited to work with them on their invitations!

kasia and jack will say their i do’s in august of 2016 during an intimate ceremony at rock creek cattle company in deer lodge, montana. kasia requested a save the date in the form of a folded card that included a simple line drawn map that illustrated where they both came from (seattle and poland), where they met (philadelphia) and where they would celebrate their wedding (montana). we created two different versions of this vintage map inspired save the date — one in english and the other in polish. these were printed on a soft cotton ivory stock in black ink with a touch of sage green. our favorite part was the finishing touch — an outline drawing of their bull dog on the back cover! we can’t wait to get started on their wedding invitation suite!
domenica and jason will say their vows in early november at the epiphany of our lord church in philadelphia and continue their celebration at the cescaphe ballroom. they requested an elegant wedding announcement inspired by the art deco period. the invitation is letterpress with stunning antique gold and emerald green inks. for their reply postcard we used a vintage black and white photograph of the formally renowned imperial theater (circa 1914), which has been transformed into the cescaphe ballroom. at the bride’s request, we had a little fun with gatsby-inspired reply wording. the emerald details card was full of helpful information for their guests, complete with a custom monogram. all guests’ mailing addresses were digitally printed in emerald on crisp soft white envelopes. lastly, the bundle was wrapped in a shiny metallic gold cord. we are excited to get started on the rest of domenica’s day of stationery!
kelsey and adam will hear wedding bells this september at the atrium at the curtis center in philadelphia. also known as the city of brotherly love, philadelphia just so happens to be where the love between kelsey and adam all started. the couple-to-be, who would travel from texas every so often to meet with us, was looking for a traditional nuptial invitation with a touch of class and elegance. their package included a chic letterpress invitation with two shades of gray. the customary set, complete with reply, details card, and monogram tag, were put together with a soft blush belly band. this package was tied together with a light gray grossgrain ribbon to seal the deal. these stylish invites were sent to guests in a simple white envelope with digitally printed addresses. we hope their wedding is as timeless as their invitation!
sophia + dan requested an invite package that was casual, clean and set the tone for the city of brotherly love (philadelphia). these guys tied the knot last weekend inside the lofty space of front & palmer. the invitation, reply postcard, and details card were all printed in full color and bound together with a deep purple hemp twine. they were mailed in an aquamarine envelope which was wrapped with the guest address label. we wish these newlyweds many happy years together in philly!

samantha + brian were married a couple weeks ago at front & palmer in the south kensington art district of philadelphia. samantha came to our design brainstorming session with a very open mind. she had only had one request, that the invite reflect the venue — a lofty barrel factory that was revamped into a modern event space. her invite captured this love of organic meets graphic with handwritten fonts and bold pattern. we stuck with a simple white and gray palette with pops of jade green and yellow ochre to compliment the autumn season. the invitation and response postcard were both letterpress on thick cranes lettra stock. the return address was rubber-stamped onto the back of the response cards. the two cards were wrapped together with a wide chevron belly band and natural jute twine with monogram tag. the invites were mailed out in kraft envelopes with digitally printed guest addresses. we love when a client gives us so much creative freedom!
lindsay + lucas will be married at the end of august at at the trinity memorial church in philadelphia, followed by a reception at the beautifully renovated down town club. lindsay requested a monogram that played off of both of their ‘l’ initials. she also loved the idea of sprinkled stars and rays of light to decorate their deep purple and blush invitation suite. the invitation was letterpress in all purple and stacked with flat cards that were printed on metallic paper. the cards were held together with a purple ribbon and monogram tag. the package was mailed in a black envelope with a white return address and guest address written out by helene gaffin.
patty and rory will be getting married this memorial day weekend in philadelphia. the couple requested a unique take on the typical photo save the date. patty liked the idea of a photo enclosed in a metallic tri-fold cover with an overall semi-formal and preppy look. the photo is attached delicately with gold striped washi tape which also matches the tape used to close the folder. the accommodation information hides beneath the photo, but can be seen once the photo is removed. we designed a classic monogram using two different fonts for each initial that we plan to carry through to their invitation.
anne + randy will be getting married this october at the franklin institute in philadelphia. they requested a playful save the date that captured the spirit of the city and got their guests excited for their big day. we created a simple postcard full of philly love! we had fun creating the heart made up of some well known icons like the love park sign, independence hall, soft pretzels, hoagies, and best of all rocky! we are currently working on their invite suite as we speak!
