we are reminiscing about our time spent at the shore this summer…taylor and thomas were married this past june at the stately shore deal golf and country club. taylor requested a stylish suite that struck a balance between beautiful and fun. the invitations were printed using shiny gold foil and navy letterpress to capture a touch of the nautical vibe they were seeking. the reply card was a retro jersey shore postcard inspired by the couple’s favorite destination. the website tag was printed on a metallic gold paper with a half hole punch to mimic a ride ticket for the infamous boardwalk rides. the collection was bundled together with a gold and natural twine and mailed out in navy envelopes addressed with gold calligraphy.

this past weekend we celebrated GD50, a commemoration of 50 years of graphic design at our college, the university of the arts. chey was asked to party chair the event with dee by her side to design and set up for the big day. it was an intense 18 months of design and collaboration with fellow alumni to make it all happen…a full weekend of exhibits, workshops, symposium and party. the party was a success…guests were greeted outside by rumble (a bucket-drum ensemble) and entered into a red-lit sixties cocktail space where they enjoyed a beer tasting by st. benjamin’s brewing co. after cocktail hour, they entered into main event space for dinner, which was glittered with cafe lights and a mix of red and white paper lanterns. entertainment for the night included sword fighting and a quartet interspersed with activities such as live screen printing, memory wall and photo booth. our role in the event was such an honor and it was overwhelming to see all of our past professors and reconnect with new and old alumni. WE ARE HERE.

our dear friend, alison conklin asked us to design some super happy cocktail napkins for her birthday back in may. the napkins featured fun quotes about her from her family. the quotes were printed with gold foil on bright aqua and poppy orange cocktail napkins. her party took place at 29 cooks in emmaus, pennsylvania. we dined on delicious food and even decorated our very own freshly made donuts. we were in love with the pretty sprinkle and topping options. another highlight of the party were the custom caricatures created by caricatures by courtney. she drew every single guest! alison’s birthday celebration was full of amazing eats, bright colors, good friends, and family.
we are feeling the fall vibes with leigh ann and trevor’s elegant november invites. this autumn wedding will be taking place at the bella voir manor in bensalem, pennsylvania. the tones of deep red, burnt orange and pops of gold create a warm invitation suite perfect for the season. we created a stacked package with invitation, rsvp postcard and details card with custom map. the letterpress invitation was printed with custom red ink and finished with a blind lace deboss detail, our favorite part! the rsvp postcard features a sepia-toned photograph of the venue and the package was tied with a rust silk ribbon and bold tag. everything was mailed in a deep red envelope with metallic gold calligraphy by danica from the butler’s pantry.
laura and ian were married this past april at the rustic barn on the bridge in collegeville, pennsylvania. this simple suite was inspired by their outdoor ceremony and neutral color palette. the couple loved the feel of handwritten typography to add to their special day and natural feel of their venue. the package was printed digitally on a combination of creamy cotton stock and kraft paper stocks. the invitation was stacked with a kraft rsvp postcard adorned with tree textures and a details card completed with a custom map of the area. the suite was finished with a delicate wrap of jute twine and tied with the couples’ monogram tag. these pretty bundles were mailed to the guests in a kraft envelope printed with black ink.
we are still feeling rejuvenated from fabulous the knot pro network mixer we were a part of last week at bok bar. this unique venue used to function as a vocational school up until 2013 and now reinvented and restored into an evolving spot to live, work and play in south philly. heart & dash blew everyone away with their creative gymnasium transformation where the event took place. the colors of the evening were eraser pink and chalkboard green inspired by the school itself. it was a fabulous night of refreshing cocktails, delicious treats, good beats and best of all networking with crazy talented vendors!

erinn + chris married in july at the very charming old st. mary’s church in philadelphia, followed by a beautiful reception at cescaphe ballroom. they requested a modern and clean invitation suite that showcased the first initial of their new shared last name. that ‘W’ along with the rest of the invite was letterpress with a charcoal gray onto a pearl cranes lettra stock. the reply card and reception info card were printed digitally to match. the pieces were mailed out in a soft gray envelope with printed guest addresses. we so much enjoyed working with erinn and chris, not to mention their very sweet and energetic wedding planner, renee patrone of events by renee.
dana and andrew were married this past july at penn oaks golf club in west chester, pennsylvania. dana requested an elegant and romantic invitation with a touch of playful typography. the package started out as letterpress and evolved into a gold shine foil piece. we love how the delicate lines and laurels catch the light! the invitation was stacked with a lavender reply postcard and simple details card. these pieces were neatly held together with metallic bakers twine and a monogram tag. the invitation was mailed to guests in a matching white envelope with printed guest addressing.
kasey and scott were married this past june with a summer celebration at the westin philadelphia. because scott is a hot air balloon pilot (how cool is that?!), a balloon element was a must have! their letterpress invitation was printed in a charcoal grey with a pop of fresh aqua. a balloon similar in style to scott’s created a blind impression behind the details of their nuptials. their stacked rsvp postcard and details card fit neatly into a soft grey pocket. their package was completed with beautiful silk aqua ribbon and tied with a wooden monogram tag. these little bundles were mailed to their wedding guest in a matching soft grey custom addressed envelope. we wish these newlyweds much love and happiness!
we get so excited when couples come back to us asking us to design for more of life’s celebrations, especially when they’re having a baby! dara and her soon-to-be baby girl will be showered this weekend at terrain at styer’s in glen mills, pennsylvania. she came to us with a vision of a bohemian style baby shower invitation that included a watercolor/dip-dyed look and casual fonts. the invitation was paired with a bookmark size note to let guest know to bring books for the baby’s library. the pieces were placed inside a digitally addressed kraft envelope which was lined with a feminine floral watercolor pattern. we had way too much fun working on these and can’t wait to see pics of the special day!
