This new destination wedding invitation has me craving a sweet summer day at the beach! Jamie and Phillip have chosen the Horseshoe Bay Resort to say their vows and I had the joy of designing these rustic, chic wedding invitations and matching thank you cards for the occasion.
Jamie wanted a look that was elegant with a dash of Texas rustic flavor to suite the spirit of the venue.
Navy flourish details + twine + modern typography + kraft brown= the perfect blend of sophisticated and casual.
A totally unique and personalized invitation, specifically designed for a beautiful couple. I will absolutely be waiting on the edge of my seat to see the photos from this wedding! Thank you Jamie and Phillip!
LOVE this bridal shower invitation. LOVE it. I had the pleasure of designing Ashley and Louis’s save the date invitation in December and then Ashley’s sister of Laura Elyse Photography was so sweet to think of me to design paper goods for the bridal soiree taking place in Philadelphia this month. With romantic, feminine and vintage design through and through, this invitation and thank you card duo is making my heart melt.
A HUGE thank you to Laura for so graciously sharing some of her amazing images from the shower . You definitely want to check out more of gorgeously unique work at Laura Elyse Photography!

Melanie and Michael…what a sweet, precious couple in love. When Melanie expressed her love for burlap and lace, I knew we could create something beautiful for her wedding invitation.
Simple and elegant fonts and graphics (love the bird flourish image!) are the perfect compliment to the lace band and button embellishments. A romantic, vintage inspired garden wedding only deserves an invitation such as this.
Melanie and Michael have teamed up with an insanely talented group to set the stage for their wedding: Kelly Simants of Sweet Pea Events, Debby Jewesson of Branching Out Events for florals and Elle Parks of Elle Parks Photography, all amazing folks I worked with on the Sweet Southern Inspiration shoot featured on Style Me Pretty.
Also in the works are coordinating thank you cards and programs for the couple so stay tuned!
If I could do it all over again, I think this would be my wedding invitation. This new design was tailor made for Tristan and Matt, a very special couple that I have known for many years who are getting married in Dallas this April.
We drew inspiration from their blush, black and ivory stitched pocket save the dates (which made D Weddings Magazine!) and the result could not have turned any more elegant over the top gorgeous.
Each piece was printed using thermography and every ribbon was dyed by hand to match the custom ink color, creating a perfectly put together invitation package. Stay tuned for the couple’s programs, menus, table cards and more!
I love pairing simple, organic elements with ultra feminine materials such as frilly chiffon, lace, or pearls. Rustic chic just seems to be the best of both style worlds and can easily be achieved by taking advantage of natures finest elements and incorporating lots of texture…with a dash of girly glamour.
So from me to you….a rustic collage of prettiness, which happens to include of number of Memento Designs photos! Enjoy!

This new Save the Date card was created for a fabulous couple in Austin, Texas. Jenny and Mike have traveled the world together and wanted to share their story with guests through the invitation. The inspiration for the design was a modern, Texas style using their apple green, orange and purple wedding colors. I love the monogram “brand” and the folding format of this invite. And the picture of the couple in the canoe taken right after Mike popped the question….priceless!
Thank you so much Jenny and Mike for being so lovely to work with!
I love this new design! Created for mommy to-be Stephany, who has chosen an amazing assortment of textiles in blues and browns for the baby nursery. I used her fabrics as the inspiration for the invitation and of course, went to town with the bird pattern! Three layers make up the invite with the top being a die cut birdcage, the middle a layer of vellum and the last the actual invitation. Each piece is held together by natural colored jute twine. Paired with the invitation is her registry card, which I printed and then die cut into a bird shape. SO adorable! Thank you hostess Kelly and congratulations Stephany!
I want to apologize for the very light blog posts as of late! The past few weeks have been so busy with designing and proofing. Designing and proofing.
So today I thought I would share a few proofs of new project in the works. These are ideas and options that I have recently presented to my brides, tailor made for just for them.
I cannot wait to share the finished and complete package of each with you…so stay tuned!
Lace, burlap and twine…done 3 ways.
Can one go wrong with blush, black and ivory?
Custom couture map and silhouette profiles of the bride and groom.
Robins egg blue and gold.
Lace. Luxury. LOVE.
A new interpretation of a former save the date design.
Again, blush, black and ivory. When this package is complete, it is going to be major.
1940′s Vintage inspired invitation in the making.
I am truly obsessing over this design and where it’s headed.
Custom illustrated map for Austin, Texas wedding!
This invitation set is divine. More to come…
New flourish invitation design that I adore.
We have decided to go with something similar but different…and equally as pretty, pretty, pretty.
When RaeAnna asked me to design a kitchen shower invitation incorporating vintage silverware, I immediately thought of the “Dining Room Measuring Spoons” from Anthropologie. So here we have it- “a marriage of sorts”…real life! The invitation turned out simply adorable and incorporates the brides lavender and grey color scheme. Thank you so much RaeAnna for your fabulous inspiration. It was such a joy creating this for you!
It took everything in me to not name this blog post “I Got 5 On It.” Okay, there. I said it.
This day has been long and I figured ending it by sharing a new baby boy shower invitation that is simply adorable would be perfect.
An extra special design for an extra special couple expecting a new addition to the family here soon! Considering the lil’ loved one will be the 5th generation Joseph P. Burchfield, could a “5″ themed shower be any more fitting? A great mix of typography and the dye cut number five’s for the registry info steal the show on this one. Congratulations over and over Meggan and Jay!!
Brand new custom wedding invitation for Colin and Jason…a darling couple tying the knot this April in a romantic garden setting. I have been working with sweet Colin for quite a while on her invitation design. So inspired by her unique ideas, bold color choices and fearless approach to design, I presented her with a number of options and her very first proof just happened to be published in the current issue of D Weddings Magazine!!!
The final look unites Colin’s love for vintage-mod style, organic and recycled materials and classic southern elegance (my all-time personal favorite.)
The thermography printed invitation is paired with a vintage botanical postcard (which the bride was able to incorporate into her cake design!), textured coral band, burlap ribbon and kraft brown envelope. Simply. LOVE. Thank you Colin and Jason!
Lisa and Joe. Quite simply one of the sweetest, most adorable couples…ever. Creating their wedding invitations was a lovely road of design bliss. Wanting to keep with the theme from their save the date, we incorporated some of the same elements, such as the custom flourish design which is engraved on each side of Lisa’s ring. The end result was classic, fresh and simply divine.
Thank you Lisa and Joe!
When flipping through the latest issue of Country Living Magazine, the “Decorating with Lace” feature caught my eye…in particular, a linen chair from Ethan Allen. So inspired by the feminine lace details and tailored structure of the chair, I had a thought: What if this chair were a wedding invitation? I couldn’t help myself and created my interpretation of the chair- a textured lace invitation with matching doily envelope.
This project was way too much fun and proof one can find inspiration in anything! So should I make a “A Marriage of Sorts” a new re-occuring post? Share your thoughts!
New custom save the date design for Ashley and Lou who are getting married in Philadelphia this summer! Ashley had found the perfect inspiration for the invitation, which was a fabulous, limited edition vintage concert poster. The design incorporates their wedding day colors of bright pink and slate grey as well as their custom profile silhouettes. I love the clean, vintage-mod style of this invitation…it just might be one of my favorites. Thanks so much Ashley and Lou and I cannot wait to begin on the wedding invitations!
These beauties were custom created for lovebirds Vipula and Andrei who are tying the knot this January in Dallas, Texas. Simply gorgeous!
The invitation is layered in luxury with rich, bold colors and a cherry blossom patterned band and red ribbon trim. We choose a 3 panel pocket enclosure in metallic gold to hold the invitation, RSVP and information card and topped it off with a monogram tag on the front. Congratulations to the bride and groom and thank you so much for being a joy to work with!
How much fun is this?? I love vintage circus/carnival typography and graphics so when asked to create a baby shower invitation with this theme, I was thrilled. Oh the possibilities! We wanted the invitation to be “baby shower appropriate” but still chic with an authentic, vintage feel. I referred to some historical circus posters and advertisements for inspiration and the final product came out simply adorable. Thank you Miranda and congratulations Mommy-to-be Eleanor!
