ELEGANT PEONIES GRACE A SPECIAL INVITATION

The bride’s favorite flower and a storybook ending shaped this wedding stationery suite. After dating in high school, then re-uniting after 20 years, this couple came together “at last”. An exquisite monogram incorporating the signature flower, images and colors drawn from nature, handmade papers and silk ribbon create an appropriately romantic invitation suite.

 

SOPHISTICATED AND ELEGANT

A bride with a sophisticated color pallet and a vision for traditional “recall” in a contemporary format inspires a suite of celebration stationery with lasting appeal. Muted golds, taupe and creams combine with an updated filigree motif, simple translucent jacket, elegant monogram, and a touch of facetted crystal to send a clear message of style and sophistication.

 

IF LIFE IS A BEACH…

Endless white sand and a turquoise sea. A dream come true for this bride and groom and an intimate group of guests. An image of white sand and beach umbrellas sets the mood. The invitation is printed in a simple font on a translucent overlay, enhancing the scene beneath. A white micah pocket fold and enclosures glitter like sun on the sea.

 

A NASHVILLE COUPLE MARRYING IN FLORIDA

This contemporary couple sought a clean, understated look for their destination wedding. With the iconic symbol of a palm tree as foundation of an original monogram and as the soft backdrop on the invitation, the use of handmade papers and subtle coloration completed this very personal expression by our bride and groom.

 

A DRAMATIC COLOR COMBINATION BECOMES CLASSIC

This invitation suite is a compelling argument for the use of a pocket-style jacket. Our thoughtful couple, with many out-of-town guests, put important information at their finger tips in a beautiful, coordinated array. Dynamic, original graphics and stylish fonts were printed in bronze and pink. A translucent band with the names of the couple wrapped the bronze folder.

 

SLEEK AND SOPHISTICATED 

A sleek, elegant yacht, site of the wedding reception, inspired the invitation created for this contemporary couple. A crisp, white micah folder opens to reveal platinum and midnight blue inserts and metallic inks. A bold monogram enhances the midnight band wrapping the folder and is again on the platinum address band on the white micah envelope lined in midnight.

 

SHE LOVES ME

Daisies are the flower favored by this bride who craved a small wedding; but the bride’s mother is renowned for her fabulous parties.  The compromise was an engagement celebration strewn with daisies.  The invitation set the stage.  A Sunstone  Envelofold  wraps a Sunstone invitation backed in Yellow Topaz, with a three dimensional daisy, one petal strategically removed.

 

SPECTACULAR

A bridal couple and their guests wearing haute couture. A renowned event designer turning the Ritz Carlton ballroom into a wonderland. This invitation would set the pace with luxurious papers and an impressive presentation anticipating the textures and colors of the wedding. Handmade papers and silk in vibrant raspberry, elegant graphics and traditional type in a contemporary format…an exceptional invitation to an extraordinary event.

 

LUXURIOUS, ONE-OF-A-KIND, MEANINGFUL

An original watercolor created by the groom’s grandmother was chosen by this thoughtful couple to set the tone for their wedding. Colors from nature found in the floral painting, including soft pinks and pale sage, were used throughout. The invitation suite is of luxurious, handmade, paper enhanced with hand-dyed silk and pink accents.

 

WEDDING WITH A VIEW

Yosemite, the spectacular location for this outdoor wedding, inspired an invitation designed to set the scene. A sepia tinted photograph of the mountains and translucent overlay are secured to the earth-brown pocket folder with a natural twig. An evergreen motif enhances the enclosures, pocket seal and envelope lining, while a rusticated font is used to tell the story.

 

BLACK & WHITE, ELEGANTLY EMBOSSED

A stunning motif with the bride’s and groom’s first names was both embossed and imprinted to create this invitation suite. Embossed on a black linen band wrapping the invitation, it appears again on the ceremony program and slim white dinner menu. Motif elements in pale taupe appear under the text of the invitation and enclosures. A taupe liner completes the look.

 

CLASSIC, YET NEW, IN NEW ORLEANS

The thematic elements of this invitation come together to create a modern look with a comfortable, traditional recall. The layout, choice of fonts and bright color have a modern vibe while the soft deckle edge of handmade paper, hand-dyed silk ribbon and a charming floral pattern set the stage for a classic spring wedding in New Orleans.

 

A MOTIF IN SILVER – A CONTEMPORARY INTERPRETATION

This couple envisioned a classic filigree motif re-interpreted in a modern expression. A generous obi wrap, wide margins of silver and the sophistication of generous, visual openness personalize this invitation suite as the bride and groom envisioned

 

A CLEAR EXPRESSION OF WHAT WAS IMPORTANT

The solemnity of the nuptial mass held in a stately cathedral was of overarching importance to this couple. Inside a champagne gold jacket, an image of the sanctuary, softly printed on opalescent paper creates a stunning backdrop for the dignified invitation. Guests’ names were printed on a translucent band (instead of inner envelope) that encircled each invitation.

 

ALL THAT GLITTERS

An elegant filigree, enhanced with Swaroski crystals, takes on a new look. It was all about luxury for this elegant bride. Creamy white, soft gold, silk ribbon, and “diamonds.” The wedding ceremony program and bridal dinner menu featured the same motifs and colors. Guests left the reception with custom chocolates and, of course, diamonds!

 

LIKE NOTHING THEY’D SEEN BEFORE…

This couple had a special story and a desire to tell it in a truly unique way. Their life as vegans informed every aspect of their wedding plans, including their invitation. Beginning with floral images created by the talented bride, thoughtful menu descriptions, travel information, and eschewing materials that exploited the animal kingdom, a booklet format was used, set within a fabric-lined box. The bride’s artwork appears throughout, including the address band sealing the box. This invitation didn’t get “lost in the mail”.

 

A FILIGREE FOR SUMMER

An elegant filigree motif is given a fresh, new look re-interpreted in leafy green. For this summer wedding, a creamy linen jacket holds the invitation and leaf green enclosures. A tiny leaf detail is incorporated into the monogram above the return address and on the folder seal. This invitation suite is the perfect preamble to an August wedding at a country estate.
