These turned out beautifully! I love the classic colors and how elegant they are given a “theme” invitation. The invitations consist of a cranberry gatefold style invitation with a white linen invitation & map on the inside, a silver postcard style response card and a vellum envelope that is covered with “snowflakes”. The invitation is hand-stamped with silver pine boughs that you can see being “snowed” upon through the envelope.
I am so excited to post these. For one, they are the invitations of friends of mine and two, they turned out beautifully! They are my first invitations using gold, for all you trivia buffs 🙂 Margo had her colors in mind when we met to discuss invitations and she was describing her centerpieces and mentioned mums. I had been wanting to do something with these rubber stamps that I really liked that were called “starburst” (supposed to look like a firework) but I thought they could be perfect representations of mums. I did a small gold mum on the envelope with a hand applied cream center. The invitations themselves were on metallic gold cardstock tucked into a cream pocket that was garnished with large scale, embossed dark red mums that had gold centers.

This is another one of those themes that I have been waiting to do and luckily Betsy came to me! Betsy was all about whimsy and I love the peacocks looking at each other on the invitation. And of course peacock feathers are always cool 🙂
The invitations have a black envelope, metallic sapphire backing with a vellum peacock feather overlay. The response card is a simple postcard that shows the entire peacocks.
These are invitations were definitely for wine lovers. They have a very bold wine bottle/wine glass theme and the deep purple and rich greens are very evocative of a vineyard. The invitations are a custom ‘pocket’ style invitation with a vellum “inner envelope” and the response card & envelope tucked into a slit on the back next to the map & menu options. I also designed a wine label-esque logo for the couple that was used on the invitation as well as the thank-you cards & programs.
Alycia & Al are big ‘foodies’ and I was so excited that she was up for using these graphics from a vintage cookbook for the meal selections on the response card!
The wedding programs featured the couples’ logo on shimmery champagne colored paper and was fastened so that the pages fanned out.
The thank you cards used a more neutral palette of blacks, greys & deep purple. They were very elegant yet casual.
A wonderfully colorful and fun invitation for a beach party rehearsal dinner. There is a pull-out map tucked into the custom beach bucket pocket
Megan’s wedding invitations were similar to her save-the-dates: ivory and black with a pop of green. But this time we incorporated the vineyard setting of her wedding and that she would be using green grapes in her table decorations. I love the simplicity of these invitations and the layering effect of the green grapes on the vellum. There is only the invitation and the response card in this set. The response card is a postcard that detaches from the invitation.
Hilary came to me with a budget, a location (a vineyard) and pretty much one requirement for her invitations- “fun”. And I lucked out and she liked my first design. Fun invitations tend to be my favorite. And I am normally not a purple person at all but I really liked how these 2 purples looked together.
The vellum envelope gives you a sense of the grapes right away. The invitation itself is folded at a perforated line. When the invitation is unfolded, you can see the leaves at the top of the grape bunch. The perforated line is to detach the response card. And we did a simple vellum information insert to keep costs down.
