work wednesday: patricia + rory.

patricia and rory became husband and wife at the end of may at st. patrick’s church followed by a reception at the historic union league of philadelphia. they wanted to carry their classic navy, gold and stripe theme over from their save the dates that we designed a few months ago. their invitation was letterpress with navy ink and a blind deboss striped border for subtle texture. the inserts were printed full color on ivory metallic paper to bring in some more texture and shine. we used an old sepia colored photograph of the union league for the front of the reply postcard and added some fun to the back with icons that represented food and after party options. the details card included a simple map of center city philadelphia where events and accommodations were indicated. the cards were held together with a simple navy paper band, glittery twine and a metallic monogram tag. the suite was mailed out in a navy envelope with angled gold calligraphy by the butler’s pantry.

we’ve also included the program and wrap around menu to share how the design was carried throughout their wedding day.

work wednesday: dara + salavatore. part two.

the fun with dara + salvatore’s gold, glitter + sparkle didn’t end with their invitations. it was carried through straight to their wedding day! if you haven’t seen their photos from alison conklin, you better look now. our pieces were worked into the stylings of the team over at proud to plan. dara loved all the little details (just like us) and didn’t want to leave anything out. for their ceremony we created custom die cut cards that had a special thank you message for their friends and family. each was adorned with a hand-sewn confetti pouch for guests to toss at the newlyweds. we worked with lindsey bee and magpi vintage rentals to create stunning vintage window pane programs and signage.

for the reception, each guest found their table number on handwritten glitter-edged placed cards by danica, from the butler’s pantry. they were neatly lined in boxes of green moss by sullivan owen. we designed their menus, each held a gold sequin wand for their guests to wave as they were announced as the new mr. and mrs. they were placed into striped kraft bags and finished with a cute little tag that read “mangia” complete with a breadstick! once the night was over, guests were treated to the most adorable favors…mini scones and jam finished with a custom die cut tag.

the whole evening was just stunning and we wish dara + salvatore the best!

work wednesday: samantha + christopher. wedding day.

a menu, program and signage that we designed for samantha + chris’ wedding day to coordinate with their invitation. samantha requested that each piece have it’s own flare. we had the most fun with the wedding program where we depicted her bridal party as silhouettes and included a tissue for the guests’ tears of joy! we wish sam + chris a happily ever after!

happy assembly.

happy saturday! we apologize for the absence of our regularly scheduled happy things yesterday, as we had a super fun day of assembly for a few of our summer brides! dee also created her very first vine post to document the day….
