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. Eberle Invitations-3290040 Eberle Invitations-3290041 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.   Eberle Invitations-3290021 Eberle Invitations-3290024 Eberle Invitations-3290032 Eberle Invitations-3290034 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!

For the love of calligraphy…

I just cannot say enough great things about how this invitation turned out!  With the help of Diane Rember of Calligraphy Expressions, who designed each piece of this invitation set, we were able to create this stunning set.  From the gorgeous calligraphy to the crisp and clean black thermography print to the Italian deckled edge paper...ugh, I just LOVE it!  I hope you all enjoy this as much as I (obviously) do.

Classic and Traditional

November 6th, 2012
Although a lot of what you see on my website are the colorful, creative and funky designs we still do a LOT of traditional and classic wedding invitations.  Traditional designs allow for a lot of customization with fonts, color, printing method, and style.  All of the designs in these photos were printed digitally, making them super affordable.    Most of the brides interested in a very traditional look or design for her invitation are interested in engraving or letterpress print, but not all of them can afford the price tags associated so for those brides either digital printing or thermography are your best bets.

Brides love BLING

November 6th, 2012
Brides love bling...period.  We have seen an increase in bride's interested in invitations that have a little sparkle this year.  Whether its a rhinestone buckle or Swarovski crystals strategically placed, the bride just can't get enough.  So, I thought I would share some of them with you.  We have SO many options and colors to choose from so if you are looking for a little bling give us a call.

Carolyn and Edward – Letterpress

November 6th, 2012
Carolyn came to me really wanting a letterpress invitation set designed much like one she found online.  The issue she had was the invitation style she found online was over her budget by a few thousand dollars.  So, we took the idea in theory and made it more affordable by making the size of the invitation smaller and limiting the number of pieces in the set (doing a response card where her guests will reply online or through a phone number versus a traditional response card with envelope).  We then tied the invitation set together with a satin bow and place in a pearl white envelope with black envelope liner.  This gave her exactly what she wanted in a budget that she was much more comfortable with.  We even designed matching thank you cards with a very delicate and simple design that could be used for years to come.

Maren and Tom – Classic Elegance

November 3rd, 2010
Maren was referred to me by Jennifer Lackey at Storybook Wedding Consulting (who is fabulous, by the way), and boy am I glad she did! Maren and Tom's wedding is the most perfect fairytale as you can see from the pictures. From the linens to the design to the flowers to, of course, the paper, there was not one single detail missed. One word...breathtaking! You can also check them out on WeddingWire.

Camille and Bret – Victorian Inspiration

November 2nd, 2010
Camille found us on one of our FAVORITE sites, The Knot, and was getting married in Riviera Maya, Mexico (jealous). She was unsure of what she wanted her invitation to look like but after a little conversation I got to know her a little more and could tell exactly what she was looking for. I started with the monogram that was printed on vellum paper, and once she liked that it was easy to do the rest. She absolutely feel in love with the completed set, and I am sure you will too. 102410-34102410-35102410-36

Back to Tradition

September 30th, 2010
So many brides come to me wanting something colorful and bold, and I believe the reason for that is because most of the photos on my website show more of this theme. However, I create many invitations that are either very traditional or traditional with a little flair so I wanted to create a posting dedicated to this idea. Living in the South you learn to really appreciate the elegance and grace of a traditional wedding. 20100715-20100715-IMG_666720100715-20100715-IMG_666920100730-IMG_015120100720-20100720-IMG_664920100720-20100720-IMG_665120100925-IMG_1302_014520100730-IMG_015620100730-IMG_015520100730-IMG_016120100925-IMG_1291_013420100730-IMG_0163
