jill and william professed their love beneath the PA-NJ bridge at the lambertville station this past may. this location meant a lot to them as a couple originally from each of the bordering states. the historic seafoam green new hope-lambertville bridge had to make an appearance into the suite. mandy, of myrtle and lloyd, painted a beautiful, custom watercolor illustration of the bridge which we had printed on translucent vellum. we used this artwork as an overlay on top of the invitation suite which allowed some of the invitation elements to peek through. the suite was finished with a playful criss cross wrapping with natural twine. the romantic large, loopy names on the invitation were the handiwork of mary ellen, of calligraphy by mary ellen, which were also used on the custom return address stamp. the invitations arrived to wedding guests in navy envelopes hand addressed with rose gold metallic ink also by mary ellen. we loved collaborating with our friendors to create such a personal invitation!
caitlin + joseph’s timeless and distinguished wedding invitation suite for their formal wedding at st. patricks church, followed by a reception at the union league, philadelphia. we used navy letterpress and gold foil on ecru cranes lettra stock for the main invitation. the reply and details card were printed in full color on ivory metallic stock. we added a custom map of philadelphia on the back of the details card and vintage etching of the union league to the back of the reception card. the insert cards were tucked into a navy flourished half pocket and wrapped with a metallic champagne belly band and custom monogram tag. the invitation was mailed out in a navy envelope also lined in champagne, addressed in gold ink and sealed with an antique gold liberty bell wax seal. we love the rich layers of this invitation and how it truly evokes the polished spirit of the union league.

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!
