I loved designing this save the date invitation for sweet Carolyn and Dan. The inspiration? New York of course! A mix of fun typography and graphics in bright blue and green make up the front and back of the design.
Their wedding style? Carolyn spoke the words “country club chic- a little preppy with an elements of whimsical fun” and I knew just what do to. What great inspiration!
I cannot wait to share their wedding invitation suite as well. Stay tuned!
Save the Date! This is a brand new design was created for love birds Elizabeth and Shaun. I adore their woodsy-romantic-rustic engagement photo taken by M2 Photography. The gorgeous couple will be tying the knot this December in the heart of Philadelphia at the Down Town Club.
Be sure to check back for more E+S wedding paper goodies….we are working on their invitation suite now and it is going to be AH- MAZING!
I feel like it’s been ages since I last set aside a few hours to just play with pretty details….AND then share it with everyone! So what brought this on? Several of the brides I am currently designing for have an affinity for luxury, romantic details, and vintage touches. LOVE! Below are a handful of photos I took of various paper goods, textiles and embellishments to spark inspiration for their designs. I needed this creative therapy.
I will be back soon with some of my new work. There is so much to share. Thank you for dropping by!
What a beautiful couple, on the inside and out. The front of this save the date invitation features one of the couples super dreamy engagement photos taken by Two Pair Photography. And yes, those really are falling wisteria flowers you see in the background of the photo!
For the back of the save the date, we drew inspiration from the historic, wrought iron detailing at their reception site, The Fort Worth Club and the super elegant, feminine style of the bride. A coordinating accommodations card is also part of this pretty package. Kinda makes me wish I could do my own save the dates all over again…
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!
LOVE this couple and their save the date turned out to be the perfect sneak peek of what’s to come at their April wedding. For the design we began with a blush, ivory and black palette that the bride adores and all of the other elements developed from there…with a dedication to incorporate vintage touches and as much personalization as possible.
Every part of the invitation was custom created for this couple- from their profile silhouettes down to the ticking fabric pockets that were dyed by hand to achieve that perfect aged, vintage feel. Paired with the kraft brown envelope and vintage stamps…I SIMPLY ADORE this save the date and their amazing engagement photos taken by Arden Prucha of Arden Prucha Photography!

Oh, goodness. Get ready. These just might be the most amazing engagement photos. EVER.
After meeting with Elizabeth and her mom and viewing the pictures taken by Shipra Panosian Photography, how could I not be inspired to design their Save the Date invitation? So much hard work and passion went into this engagement session and I am so honored to be a part of it. Shipra created true works of art reflecting the couples love story and family history…..I am in awe of her style and you must check out her blog here!
Inspired by their love for music and playing the piano, Elizabeth found a vintage piano, painted it robin’s egg blue and used it as the back drop for the session. A number of other family heirlooms were used to stage the scene, including vintage pocket watches, a strand of pearls, a gold candelabra, and her Grandmothers bible. I just adore the relaxed “english tea party” theme they created….don’t you think it looks like something out of a movie?
Below are a handful of Shipra Panosian’s masterpieces that she so graciously shared with us and the
2-sided Save the Date invitation I designed for the couple. Enjoy!

New Save the Date invitation for Lisa and Joe! A classic design in cornflower blue and charcoal grey with an interesting mix of typography. So, so pretty.
Lisa had the fabulous idea of tying in the amazing flourish arrow design on the setting of her engagement ring. So, I designed a graphic of the detailing and incorporated it on each side of the monogram. Love touches of personalization! Stay tuned for the invitation suite…
Alex and Rich. Ahhhhh. So lovely to be working with this couple on their wedding paper goods. The inspiration behind their save the date was one of their fabulous engagement photos and the wedding day colors: eggplant, paris blue and a rich ivory. The packaged look came out so sophisticated and well…pretty pretty pretty. These two love birds will be making it official this April at an amazing outdoor venue in Austin. I cannot wait to begin working on their invitations, table cards, programs, etc. Stay tuned for more of their custom collection!
Elegant. Bright. Fresh. These three words describe this couple and their invitation suite. Designing for Kallie and Ryan was so easy with their fabulous ideas and focused vision on color and style. We tied in the same soft orange and coral shades as well as the monogram design used on their save the date, which made for a very cohesive and gorgeous look. I think this invitation is a great reflection of how fun and refreshing their wedding will be. Thank you so much Kallie and Ryan and congratulations!
There’s something to be said for any decorative element that not only has a multitude of uses but can withstand the test of time….hundreds of years in fact. Silhouettes first became popular in the 17th century as a cheap and quick art form and have now evolved into a modern memento reflective of the Victorian era. Used in invitations, framed artwork and textiles, silhouettes are clean and versatile. Personal and vintage. The perfect adornment.
New save the date designed for an amazing couple with great taste, Meghan and Ken. They are getting married in January at the Frontiers of Flight Museum, which houses rare planes from WWII amongst other incredible historical artifacts. Um……awesome! Playing off of Meghan’s traditional style & love for all things 1940′s, we went with a classic navy and cream design & then dressed it up with vintage-inspired graphics. Love this Americana look & love this couple! Congratulations Meghan and Ken!
A bright and elegant design for a bright and elegant young lady! Kallie & Ryan are getting married in November & have chosen a color scheme based on orange, coral and oh so soft pink. Gorgeous! Paired with the papaya colored envelope, this exciting save the date invitation is sure to get guests marking their calendars & booking travel plans! Wedding invitation pics to follow….so stay tuned!
Shades of turquoise and coral work great together for any event, especially a wedding. Trendy with splashes of yellow-green and soothing with browns and neutrals, turquoise is Pantone’s 2010 Color of the Year and officially HOT. Below are a few Memento paper goods and a flirty hair accessory inspired by this palette. Enjoy!
A new design for Miranda and her finance Grant. Miranda is gorgeous, classy, and full of style and taste so of course their Save the Date is as well. Full of fancy flourishes and black & white eye popping details, this design just might be my favorite for one reason: the hand drawn silhouette profiles of the Bride and Groom themselves. Soooooo frame worthy & a true memento. Stay tuned for invitation and hair accessory photos!
