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.

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!
