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!

we are reminiscing about our time spent at the shore this summer…taylor and thomas were married this past june at the stately shore deal golf and country club. taylor requested a stylish suite that struck a balance between beautiful and fun. the invitations were printed using shiny gold foil and navy letterpress to capture a touch of the nautical vibe they were seeking. the reply card was a retro jersey shore postcard inspired by the couple’s favorite destination. the website tag was printed on a metallic gold paper with a half hole punch to mimic a ride ticket for the infamous boardwalk rides. the collection was bundled together with a gold and natural twine and mailed out in navy envelopes addressed with gold calligraphy.

work wednesday: laura + ian.

laura and ian were married this past april at the rustic barn on the bridge in collegeville, pennsylvania. this simple suite was inspired by their outdoor ceremony and neutral color palette. the couple loved the feel of handwritten typography to add to their special day and natural feel of their venue. the package was printed digitally on a combination of creamy cotton stock and kraft paper stocks. the invitation was stacked with a kraft rsvp postcard adorned with tree textures and a details card completed with a custom map of the area. the suite was finished with a delicate wrap of jute twine and tied with the couples’ monogram tag. these pretty bundles were mailed to the guests in a kraft envelope printed with black ink.

suzanne and jeffrey walked down the aisle in october at st. peter’s episcopal church and celebrated afterwards at the kimmel center in philadelphia. their chic invitation suite was designed in all black and white with a large focus on typography. their letterpress invites were printed in blind deboss and black ink. their digital inserts included a reply card with custom lined envelope, along with an information card that featured a custom map of philadelphia. the couple’s horizontal format suite was bundled around a piece of black coverstock with a thin black wax cord which held a square tag with a personalized blind deboss monogram. this was mailed in a sleek black envelope, with white foiled return address and envelope liner which included a unique drawing of the philadelphia skyline. they were hand addressed in a modern typeface by mandy of myrtle and lloyd and completed with custom postage displaying their precious dog, tucker!
