Woodend Wedding Invitations

Maureen and Tommy were such a dream to work with and I loved creating everything for their Woodend wedding from their logo to the day of beverage signs and everything in between.  Since they were getting married outside they wanted to tie in the nature aspect with a gold and navy color scheme.  Maureen loved the eclectic look so I designed each piece to be an individual design yet all tie together.

While the bride wanted to tie in metallics we didn't want to do anything as bold as foil so we settled on printing offset where the ink gives a nice shimmer but still ties into the natural look they were going for.

For the day of designs we tied in patterns similar to the invitation for the beverage menus, buffet labels and escort cards.  This helped bring the entire look together for what would be a beautiful wedding.

Holiday Styled Shoot

I loved working with Melissa from Blink Photography on this styled wedding shoot where the inspiration was berry colors and a touch of holiday.  The Blanc Denver was the perfect venue to provide a modern blank canvas for the slightly rustic but glamorous decor.  This shoot is the perfect inspiration if you are looking to get married around the holidays but don't want it to be over the top holiday themed.

I designed the place cards below to be die cut names attached to pomegranates to help add a pop of color to the table.  Place cards are a great way to think outside the box and have do double duty by incorporating them into your table decor.

The invitation was designed to fan out with a patterned folder in the pack holding the RSVP card and information card.  It was all tied together with suede and a wax seal.

The favors were tree saplings for guests to take home and plant.  I designed a sign to look like a slice of wood to attach to the favor basket.

Vintage Wax Seal Invitation Suite

I'm so very excited to share this invitation suite with you as it might just be my favorite to date.  I really enjoyed working with this client as she was so creative herself.  When she came to me with her vision for the event she described it as 20's vintage glam, not too Gatsby with a small steampunk edge and a little bit of whimsy pulled together with the perfect blend of masculine and feminine.  I am always up for the challenge of mixing different looks and love how the final package came together.


It is always important for me to hear the client's vision for their event as you never know what elements can spark inspiration for the invitation design.  Vintage keys were being used in the event decor so I designed an event logo using Zoe's initials and the date of the event and then incorporated it discreetly into a few places in the design.  Silent movies were also a part of the decor as they were being shown above the bar so I designed the party card to look like a silent movie screen.


My favorite element by far was the personalized wax seal with Zoe's logo which we used to pull the whole suite together along with a black belly band and twine.  This is the first project I've used a wax seal on but I love that I'm starting to see they are making a comeback.  I might of already tried to convince a few brides I'm working with to incorporate them into their upcoming invitation suite designs I'm so smitten by them.

I really love how the mix of looks and unique details came together and set the tone for what I'm sure was a fabulous event.

Summer Bat Mitzvah Invitation

This gorgeous warm weather has me so excited for summer that I thought I'd reach back in the archives and share with you a summer themed Bat Mitzvah invitation suite I designed last year.

The inspiration behind Sofia's invitation was a classy beach bash with bright colors.  The goal was to make it both sophisticated and fun at the same time.  I incorporated a modern wave pattern in different colors and sizes on the invitation, RSVP and information card and the bold striped pattern on the party card was inspired by a beach umbrella on the french riviera.

To pull the suite together I designed a circle tag and tied everything up with twine.  This is one of my favorite ways to make an invitation a complete package instead of loose cards in an envelope and it can help add another pop or color or interesting texture.  

I love how bright and fun these invitations turned out and I'm just about ready to pack my bathing suit and head to the beach myself!
