Surprise Birthday Party Invitations with a Neil Diamond Twist

December 08, 2017
Filed under Custom

We created these surprise birthday party invitations for my mom, Caroline’s 70th birthday. Growing up, Neil Diamond’sSweet Caroline,” has always been her anthem of sorts. Naturally, we had to go with a Neil Diamond theme for the invitations.

The design was modern and fun. We used both bold and feminine fonts which paired well with the bright color palette and the soft pinks. The invitation itself was printed double sided with 1947, the year of her birth on the back. The secondary cards included a reply card and an additional details card. Everything was held together with twine and a tag with the image of Neil belting out “Sweet Caroline.” Beautiful marbled paper that lined both the mailing envelope and the response envelope, along with color coordinated vintage postage completed this suite.

We got to do some fun accessories for the event itself. Cute drink stirrers with an image of my mom from her younger days, colorful cocktail napkins and bar menus.

Detroit Wedding Invitations with Gold Foil and Map

September 15, 2017
Filed under Custom, Gold Foil, Map

Presenting these Detroit wedding invitations created for our bride and groom for their Detroit wedding. It features a modern design layout, a monochromatic color palette, gold foil details and gorgeous, marbled paper envelope liners.

We love designing maps around here and this one was one of my favorite pieces in this suite. We were able to include many of our couples favorite destinations in the city, as well as all of the important wedding day locations.

On the day our clients were engaged they celebrated by going to a Detroit Tigers game at Comerica Park. The party continued with friends and family for dinner at Fishbones in Greektown. When it became time to plan the wedding it was only natural that their wedding should be in Detroit. All of their guests stayed at the Atheneum Suite Hotel. The reception was at Fishbones and their guests could also hit the Greektown Casino right next door.

Rustic Chic Wedding Invitations

July 19, 2017
Filed under Calligraphy, Custom, Wax Seals

When Sarah asked me to work with her on her stationery needs, I was thrilled. I loved her theme, which was rustic chic wedding invitations. They wanted their wedding to be a relaxed, fun environment, but still a pretty wedding and not just a backyard camp out. Sarah’s overall decor was very airy and romantic with lots of whites in the decor and flower scheme. Their invitations were inspired by it and we were so pleased with the results. It was a true reflection of both Sarah and Trevor. Rustic Chic Wedding InvitationsSarah and Trevor are outdoor enthusiasts which is why they were drawn to Settlers Creek Farmstead. It is a 100 year old farmstead next to the mountains and river in Coeur d’ Alene, IA.

Some of the details in her wedding stationery included, a vellum wrap, that was sealed with white twine and a custom designed wax seal with their custom designed wedding logo. The gorgeous calligraphy on the envelopes was done by the oh-so-talented Mandy Curtis of Myrtle and Lloyd.

Sarah has a passion for outdoor photography as well and we were able to include some of her pictures in their suite. It was a surprise element that we printed on the back of the invitation and on the back of the response card. We then overlaid two different quotes that were meaningful to her and Trevor. It was a really cool, personal detail that we were able to include in her rustic chic wedding invitations.Rustic Chic Wedding Invitations

Spanish Style Wedding Invitations

February 14, 2017
Filed under Custom, Laser Cutting

This Spanish style wedding invitation has been one of my most inquired about and requested invitations I have done to date. The very first one was created back in 2007 for a destination wedding in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. You can see the original featured here on Oh so beautiful paper.

This latest version of the invitation was for the reception only, being held at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. The museum, located at the heart of Santa Barbara’s historic district, it is a venue that evokes the romance of early Spanish California. This wedding invitation sets the tone perfectly for these types of venues.

The suite included the same beautiful laser cut gate fold, invitation and reception card. Everything was held together with a gold ribbon and wax seal.Spanish Style Wedding Invitations

California Camp Wedding

September 21, 2016
Filed under Custom

Earlier this summer we teamed up with Diana and Nick to bring their version of a camp wedding  invitation to life. Each piece incorporates whimsical, hand-drawn details, with a rich fall color palette of deep reds, burnt orange and a touch of powder blue. We have done our fair share of wedding day timelines over the years, but this one was the most elaborate and full of personal details. We were able to showcase their love of the outdoors, Carolina BBQ and blue grass music.
