work wednesday: rachel + ben.


after designing rachel + ben’s save the dates, they came back for their invitations! the couple wed on the 22nd of october at the princeton university chapel followed by a reception at the cherry valley country club. they wanted to carry over the modern, clean, geometric patterns and their fresh palette of black, white, green + gray. the whole suite was digitally printed. the modern invite was backed by a crisp black half pocket which held their stacked oversized rsvp postcard and folded details card. ​we also designed a custom map personalized with two little squirrels at the couple’s request! everything was tied neatly together with black and white baker’s twine and finished with a custom monogram tag. the package was mailed to their guests in a grey envelope addressed in black ink.

in honor of st. patrick’s day we’d love to share these invitations we created for erin’s bridal shower held at the tuscany house hotel among the vineyards of the renault winery. we designed a lucky-in-love mark for the shower stationery since the event was held so close to both valentine’s and st. patrick’s day. it was also a nod to the bride who adores all things irish! we added an irish lace detail to the front and vintage illustrations for the entree choices on the back of the invite. the vertical invites were mailed in a metallic gold top open envelope. the lucky-in-love theme was carried throughout the day with green centerpieces topped with pink felt hearts and a scratch-off lottery ticket favor!

work wednesday: stephanie + marc.

stephanie and marc were wed on the last number sequential date of the year, 12.13.14, at the upscale crystal tea room in philadelphia. as much as they loved their playful save the dates, they requested a formal and sophisticated silver and plum invitation suite. the letterpress invitation was adhered to a metallic titanium pocket fold. the rehearsal dinner invitation, rsvp postcard and details card were printed on a metallic cover stock and neatly stacked in the side pocket. the pocket was wrapped with a beautiful two-toned satin ribbon and sealed with a tag with their fabulous date. the package was mailed to guests in silver lined black envelopes which were hand addressed in silver ink by danica from the butler’s pantry.

in addition, we also designed stephanie’s wedding shower invitations.  she had a brunch at valanni and asked that the design reflect the restaurant as well as her wedding day materials. we decided on a long, tall format adorned with geometric pattern and elegant fonts. each was mailed in a metallic silver envelope and sealed with a custom printed mailing label.

we wish these newlyweds the happiest of holidays and an amazing new year as husband and wife in their new home!

work wednesday: kristie’s wedding shower.

aubrie came to us after seeing elizabeth + kevin’s wedding invitation on our blog. she loved the quirky style and wanted to transform it into a shower invitation for her sister’s upcoming festivities. she chose a neutral palette of chocolate and tan. we added a pop of color with papaya mailing envelopes! we also designed custom stationery sheets for the shower. guests will write a little note for the bride-to-be and then the entire collection will be stored in this beautiful, shabby chic binder from peachy keen day.

nicole + chris. honeymoon wedding shower.

nicole’s mother and bridesmaids came to us to design her surprise wedding shower invitation. nicole and chris had a honeymoon registry so they wanted honeymoon registry so they wanted the invite to resemble a passport to go along with the travel theme! they also wanted to keep the design elements from her save the dates, so we created this folded card in actual passport size!

jessica + patrick.

we were beyond excited when jess + patrick came to us wanting a complete custom stationery set for their wedding! they were married this past april at the four seasons hotel in philly. it’s so nice to carry a cohesive theme, whether with fonts or imagery, throughout all of your wedding materials from the announcement to the thank you notes. their stationery exudes elegance with a touch of whimsy — as seen with the blind debossed dino on the rehearsal dinner invite. and the roses were inspired details from jessica’s couture wedding gown…
