loveleigh’s latest: kelly + dario.



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.

morgan and ezekiel tied the knot this past december with a destination wedding in tabernash, colorado just before the holiday season. their venue, the devil’s thumb ranch, which sits just below the breathtaking rocky mountains, proved to be the perfect backdrop for their big day and acted as a source of inspiration for their invitations. their oversized 6×9 invite combined an array of earthy colors and charming details, such as a black letterpress and angled handwriting by calligrapher danica butler. the invites were then enhanced by strategically placed touches of gold upon the edges, foiled names, and guest addressing. along with an online rsvp info card and a watercolor map of the couple’s story, also painted by danica, the invites were tied together with gold silk ribbon and wedding date tag before being shipped out in dark berry envelopes to their loved ones. we are pleased with the completion of this project and wish morgan and zeke a wonderful life together!

work wednesday: lyndsay + vincent save the date.

lyndsay and vincent will walk down the aisle this june at the rodin museum in philadelphia, pennsylvania. lyndsay was looking for a couture piece to announce her wedding to friends and family. we entrusted artist mandy holt, from myrtle and lloyd, to create a watercolor rendition of the rodin museum and reflection pond. the artwork was printed in full color and the modern, airy black fonts were letterpress. these save the dates were sent out in a matching white cranes envelope with letterpress return address.

we recently designed brand new business cards for our ultra fun friend and calligrapher, mandy, of myrtle & lloyd. she wanted a letterpress card that was both chic and sophisticated, but still expressed her creative personality and talent. her beautiful, hand-drawn logo was blind de-bossed on the front and her contact information was pressed on the back in warm charcoal gray ink. the minimal design was the perfect palette for mandy to add a custom wash of watercolor to each card. we love this idea and hope her clients do too!
