once upon a time a bride named sarah and a groom named rob planned a dream wedding at a castle. this late 19th century castle is more commonly known as le chateau frontenac in quebec, canada. we hired mandy of myrtle and lloyd to illustrate the luxury resort with it’s green peeks and millions of windows. we love how she captured it’s splendor with those details. the illustration was printed flat on 2 ply cranes lettra and then the save the date information was printed as letterpress. we love this balance of modern clean type with a classic watercolor painting!

briana and nicholas will be exchanging their wedding vows in front of family and friends this spring. we were beyond excited when they told us they wanted to incorporate vintage handkerchiefs into their save the date package! she supplied us with the most colorful hankies to work with. they were screen printed with a transparent scalloped white shape and navy ink. each was neatly folded into a card backer and held in place with navy jute twine. these pretty little bundles arrived to their guests in geometric lined envelopes with die cut address labels. we are looking forward to designing their invitation suite!
we get pretty excited over here when our couples have babies! caitlin and jake brought this sweet boy, liam thomas, into the world this past spring. caitlin requested a classic birth announcement that included soft colors, gingham, personalized monogram and even a stork! we printed this in full color on an extra thick uncoated stock. we paired it with a cream envelope lined in baby blue and addressed in colors to match. congrats to this beautiful family!
hannah + sean made their commitment to one another last month among the grapevines of jessie creek winery in cape may county, new jersey. we created a custom oak barrel stamp for their save the dates that we later used as an engraved detail on the wooden tag for their invitation. their rustic invitation and reply postcard were printed digitally in muted sage green and lavender. we designed with natural patterns of wood grain and grapevines to capture the feel of their relaxed day in the vineyard. the natural jute twine, wooden tag and grocery bag envelope all added just the right amount of texture. cheers to a lovely couple!
maureen and jeffrey were married last month on the waterfront at the historical landmark, water works in philadelphia. they requested that their wedding paper capture the neo-classic romance that the venue resonates while feeling fresh and modern at the same time. we worked with mandy of myrtle and lloyd to create this soft custom watercolor of the waterworks and carried this image throughout their wedding stationery. the painting was printed onto the save the date and completed with letterpress wording. it also became the perfect tag to seal the pocket folder that held the invitation and pretty postage for both the reply and outer envelopes. the invitation was printed with a combination of rose gold foil and charcoal gray letterpress. the insert cards were printed flat and stacked neatly inside a blush pocket. we finished the piece of with a rose gold foiled liner for that extra wow factor! many wishes to one of the nicest couples around!

we created these fun boarding pass style invitations for lauren + matthew’s destination wedding this spring in turks & caicos! they asked for bright caribbean colors to compliment their breathtaking tropical venue, the beach at the somerset on grace bay. the invitation and details card were printed in full color and die cut to an authentic boarding pass ticket shape. we inserted them into a half moon pocket which we wrapped with twine and luggage tag. they were mailed out in matching aqua blue envelopes with coordinating wrap around address labels. we love looking back at these tickets to paradise as we work on their day of materials!
jenni + jb wanted to announce their summer wedding with a krafty cool postcard. thousands of miles lay between both of their hometowns in pennsylvania and wyoming, so we drew a map of the USA nodding at their path of love and travel. the combo of a natural colors and rustic fonts are a taste of things to come as we work on their fun-loving invitation for their wedding at barn on bridge!
dr. debbie parnes, a former loveleigh bride, approached us as she was undergoing a rebrand for her practice, phamily orthodontics. once her new logo was completed she was in need of a new stationery package and website. debbie has an eye for color, type and design, which we learned when designing her wedding suite a few years back, so we knew this project was going to be a blast…even before our consultation! she requested a palette of bold purples and greens with a pop of gold. the entire design was inspired by a vintage ornate gold frame that represented phamily. from that iconic image, we designed an eclectic gallery wall filled with their phamily-patient photos which carried through the site. love me do photography shot brand new images of the staff and two beautiful offices, located in paoli and wayne, pennsylvania. we highly recommend dr. parnes and pham if you are searching for a new orthodontist. through the process, dee even got herself a brand new gold glitter retainer!
dee’s daughter, mila is pretty obsessed with the dreamworks trolls movie. it’s her movie of choice these days and they are always jamming to the awesome soundtrack whenever in the car. when asked what kind of 3rd birthday she wanted, she responded with trolls + bowling of course! so they came up with a trowling party! dee created a fun invitation full of rainbows, glitter and a touch of troll hair texture to capture the vibe of the movie. her threenager was very pleased!
we celebrated cheyenne’s mother’s 70th birthday a couple weeks ago surrounded by friends + family. we designed a soft, feminine and very vibrant invitation to commemorate this beautiful milestone in her life. a january birthday needs a little extra color! we also used a faux gold foil in the design to add some sparkle. the simple white envelopes were dressed up with watercolor washes and digital addressing to tie it all together. happy bday mama!
