subway sweethearts - louisa and adam

Louisa and Adam really like subway maps (and who could blame them?). In fact, they own a collection of them that Louisa gave Adam for Christmas last year. Inspired by the graphic elements commonly used in subway maps, they asked us to design for them a truly unique and personal wedding invitation.

a weekend event - erin and david

This past winter we customized our Teresa wedding invitation for Erin and David to use as a save the date announcing their weekend long wedding celebration in central New York state. They chose to continue on the same theme once it became time to work on the rest of their wedding stationery, and we put together a color scheme of reds and oranges to be used interchangeably throughout the series.

These images include their invitation, rsvp, and information cards. As well as the images of the digital files for their table numbers, escort cards, and program covers, which they printed themselves. Congrats to you two again! I'm glad to hear the weekend (and weather) was fabulous!

bilingual wedding invitations - anita and nicholas

When Anita and Nicholas contacted us last winter about their wedding invitations they had an idea of what they were looking for. They needed to be able to include their wedding information in Chinese as well as English, and wanted a design symbolic of their heritage. With some help from friends we were able to gather the Chinese text while we worked on the design and what resulted is this double sided invitation set. Congrats again guys! :)

creating a custom logo for your wedding - jessica and luke

This past week we worked with Jessica and Luke, an adorable couple out in CA, to come up with a "logo" for  their casual park wedding next spring. Jessica is an avid crafter (hence the yarn) and Luke plays golf. They wanted to meld the two into an image that they can apply to all of the different elements of their wedding stationery and decor. The top one is their final design...the other two were a couple of the other options. :)

custom printed reception decor - rachel and jonathan

We LOVE when couples send us images from their wedding of the pieces we designed for them! Especially when it's something that doesn't get put together until after it's shipped to them. Last August we worked with an awesome couple up in Canada on several of their stationery pieces (based on our Emily wedding invitation). For their wedding reception centerpieces we printed some vellum sheets to be used around the candle holders, and some little name tags that were tied around bundles of lavender and used as place cards. We also designed and printed their menus and name cards for their cookie bar (which I'm sure was delicious!). I've also included an image of the matching programs we designed and printed for them.

Waiting on the photo credit... :) I'll get it up as soon as I have it!

brooklyn bride - custom wedding invitations

Every time we design a New York inspired wedding invitation for a couple I get the urge to pack up and head out there. This has proven to be no exception. Mia and Shawn (a fabulous Brooklyn couple) have been awesome to work with and we wish them all the best!

ann & calvin custom wedding program

After finishing up Ann and Calvin's wedding invitations they contacted us about designing custom programs for their ceremony. Because the wedding is taking place in Minnesota's Central Park Amphitheater, they wanted the design to incorporate some of the elements and colors of the location.

When Monica and Abraham contacted us about designing a custom invitation for them we were thrilled!

Jessica and Michael: Save the Date

When we first met Jessica and Michael they let us know they wanted to do something really modern and different for their wedding save the dates. They enjoy going to the zoo together, the look of artsy concert and zoo posters, and most specifically, penguins. The goal was to meld the three in a self mailing postcard design. :)

From the Vault - paisley and pink wedding invitations

So since we were a tad bit slow on getting our blog up and running I've decided to start a series of entries "from the vault." This way we can share some of our favorite custom wedding invitation designs we've worked on in the past. :) So let's kick things off...

Brandi was one of the very first brides we met on Etsy. Her and Scott's spring time wedding is themed with paisley in shades of pinks and blues. Printed on linen cardstock, these save the dates were sent out as postcards.

Photos of the formal invitation to come...

Emy & Taylor - asiatic lilies

When Emy and Taylor accepted our wedding invitation bid on Etsy's Alchemy we were really excited to get started. They let us know that they were interested in something bright, bold, and non-traditional. And that their wedding is going to be themed with asiatic lilies and oranges/tangerines/clementines. We just got these back from the printer this week, and they're some of my favorite invites we've ever designed. Thanks again to Emy and Taylor!
