Heather and Andrew – October 2016 Wedding

April 27th, 2018

Not only do I love this simple yet gorgeous invitation, but I love the photos of the suite together!  All in one photo you have the two-sided save the date, the gold foil invitation, the gold foil folded thank you notes, the table number, and last but not least, the absolutely adorable little folded wedding program complete with a tiny little ribbon.

Emily and Andrew – July 2017 Wedding

December 16th, 2017

We certainly know how to execute on the classic and traditional wedding invitation, and that pebble embossed handmade paper is certainly one of our most popular materials to use.  These photos by Anna and Spencer Photography really show how wonderful all of their stationery turned out.

Caroline and Ben – April 2016 Wedding

December 16th, 2017

This invitation was one that has been a very popular style since we completed them in back in April 2016.  It’s a classic gold foil on cotton bridal white stock set using a font that has a very whimsical character to it but it still gives an overall formal feel.  I have so many brides lately that want the “formal yet fun” feel and I think this is perfect set for that type of bride.

Caroline and Ben – The Perfect Gold and Ivory Invitation

May 4th, 2016

Caroline and her mother came to me wanting the perfect gold and ivory (really, soft white but Im picky on colors) invitation.  She wanted something classic, clean with a bit of whimsy.  So, we chose a gorgeous letterpress paper in the perfect color with a gold foil print and gold response envelope to add the touch of color she was looking for.  Then, to top it off, we designed it using a font that was a little more fun than super traditional.  Im sure you will agree that this invitation met all of their needs!

Sarah and Wes – Champagne and Rose Gold

May 2nd, 2016

Sarah was a super sweet girl from Tennessee who had just happened upon my website while searching for invitations.  Being that she was in Tennessee and I’m here in Atlanta, I sent her paper samples and invitation samples in the mail to help us narrow down what she wanted for her invitations, and came up with this stunning champagne, taupe, blush, and rose gold letterpress and foil printed invitation set complete with a rose gold edge paint and custom monogram by Allison Banks.  I especially love the rose gold foil address on the blush response envelopes!  These invitation certainly exceeded Sarah’s expectations, and I can certainly see why!

Katie and Will – Silver Pebble, Silver Foil, Silver Everything!

April 26th, 2016

I actually worked with the mother-of-the-bride throughout this entire process, and she was a true delight to work with.  Its ALWAYS fun to work with a client that tells you “I love stationery and I want these to be fabulous since it will set the tone for the entire weekend’s events.”  YES!  The original inspiration was just something unique for the design without too much else to work with.  So, I do what I always do, and start asking questions about the event and the bride’s favorite parts of the planning process so far.  Her mother told me, “Oh, by far, the dress.  She is obsessed with her dress.”  So, here it is and we used this as the inspiration for the invitations.  I think they turned out pretty “fabulous.”

Save the Dates

The save the dates were what starts it all, and these were done relatively (a really nice way of saying VERY) quickly.  Digitally printed with the same silver metallic stock as the middle layer as was used on the invitation.

The Wedding Invitations

These stunners were silver foil printed for all of the pieces on a smooth/semi-gloss white cardstock and mounted to a light silver pocketfold with the gorgeous pebble embossed paper and dark graphite stock accent.  I really cant get enough of that pebble paper, and its obvious my clients cant either!

April and Matt – Winery Wedding

April 3rd, 2016

We love it when the groom’s get involved in the wedding invitation design process, because not only do many of them love to be included (even though they may tell you they don’t care) there are lots of them that have really incredible ideas!  This was the case with this couple.  April had the most gorgeous venue (Chateau Elan) and color choices all picked out that was the most perfect fit for her wedding destination, and Matt had his mind completely made up as to what papers he wanted to use and the formality he wanted for the invite.  It was a match made in heaven for a stationer.

The Wedding Invitation

The main invitation was double thick stock and both the invite and the response card were edge painted in a stunning dark burgundy/wine color.  All of the pieces were gold engraved, and the finishing touch was the calligraphy script and custom monogram designed by Allison R. Banks Designs.  I have to admit, my favorite parts are the gold engraved printing on the burgundy belly band and the burgundy response envelope.  SO PRETTY!

The Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

The groom’s mother contacted me and wanted to do something complimentary to the wedding invitation but not the exact seem.  So, we kept it in the same color theme and used the same monogram, but simply digitally printed the invitation and used slightly different (non-custom calligraphy) fonts.

The Other Wedding Stationery

When you have a stunning monogram and really awesome colors to work with, it makes the other pieces very easy.  The programs were digitally printed, double-sided, with a gorgeous metallic dark gold stock in the center.  Then, we letterpress printed the menus and her thank you note stationery.  All with their 3 initial monogram to cap off the perfect suite for a perfect couple.

Melissa and Greg – Gold Foil, Pebble Paper, and all the other “fixin’s”

April 2nd, 2016

I tell people all the time, I really do have the best job because I meet some of the most amazing people.  I feel really lucky.  However, sometimes you come across people that are SO nice that you think to yourself…are these people for real?  How can you be this awesome ALL THE TIME?  Well, Melissa, Greg and their ENTIRE family are those kinds of people.  Melissa fell in love with our pebble paper invitations (can’t blame her) and, of course, our gold foil printing (once again, can’t blame her); however, doing absolutely everything in gold foil printing did go slightly over her budget.  So, what did we do?  We did what we do best…we worked with her to get a little creative on the invitation pieces and printing to still give her what she wanted but not lose the overall concept and feel of the original invitation.  First, we decided to do the response envelope in the light lavender to match the backing of the invitation and digitally printed the response envelope address instead of gold foil printing it.  Second, we made a smaller details information card to direct people to her website for hotel accommodations and other information versus printing a large card with all of the text and information in it.  Everything with foil printing is based on the size of the piece because the larger the piece, the more expensive the plate is, and the more paper you will need to get it done.  By reducing the size, we reduced the cost dramatically because the plate wasnt as much and we didn’t need as much paper.  Lastly, we digitally printed the return addresses and guest addresses on the outer envelope for her versus doing those gold foil and having a calligrapher do the addressing.  And, voila!  Happy wife, happy life!  Its a good way to start!

Danica and David – Elegance at its best…

March 31st, 2016

Danica and I have a mutual friend in common, so when she had a “not so awesome” experience with another vendor on her save the dates she contacted our mutual friend and put us in touch…and Im so glad she did!  Danica and David live in New Jersey and were originally planning to get married in Cabo, but when Cabo was hit my a hurricane the hotel was destroyed and they had to completely regroup last minute (sadly, after the gorgeous two color foil save the date was created and printed).  All was good in the world, however, because they hired an incredible wedding planner out of NYC (Jennifer Zabinski with JZ Events) that pulled a new location and vendors together very quickly.  Working alongside Allison Banks with Allison R. Banks Designs, we created a stunning save the date and wedding invitation suite that will surely make your heart melt.  {Don’t forget to check out the amazing article on the gorgeous couple in Grace Ormande Magazine}.

The Save the Date

Custom designed monogram by Allison Banks with two color foil, both platinum and rose gold foils, and duplexed with a white stock on one side and a champagne stock on the back.

The Wedding Invitation

This one was a doozy, so try to follow me as I explain all of the amazingly custom parts to this invitation set.  For one, we used Allison’s calligraphy designs for the entire suite, then imaged and engraved them in a stunning medium gray ink.  All of the pieces were printed on double thick stock with the main invitation being double thick stock DUPLEXED to make it double as thick.  Then, when you didn’t think it could get more decadent, we edge painted each piece in rose gold foil and created a custom snakeskin embossed envelope liner and belly band.  And last, but certainly not least, Allison did the calligraphy on both the outer and inner envelopes in a custom ink color to match the invitations.  I mean, really…this was such a gorgeous invitation.

The Thank You Notes

You can’t go all this way with stunning stationery and not have amazing thank you notes to complete the set!  We decided to go a teeny bit more masculine on these with just the right amount of femininity.  These were copper engraved with their custom monogram on a double thick (once again) slate stock and paired with a matching envelope and copper envelope liner.  I then included a white ink pen for the bride to write all of thank you notes with.  Love, love, love!

Alana’s Bat Mitzvah Invitation – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

March 30th, 2016

Several years ago we created a bridal shower invitation that had a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme.  Once I posted a photo of that invitation to Pinterest, I think we got 3 calls per week for about 2 months for that very same style of invitation and we continue to get calls about it even today!  So, when I had a client inquire about doing a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed Bat Mitzvah invitation I knew I had the perfect invitation to show her.  We did tweak the style a little from the original design (this one is a 5.5×7.5 inch invitation and the original one was a square style) and also added a little bling with the sparkle paper (sparkle paper that DOESN’T EVER SHED might I add) in order to make it the perfect invitation for Alana’s special celebration.
