Save the Date!
I think a vineyard wedding is just about as gorgeous as you can get (says the southern gal who only gets to lay eyes on vast rolling expanses of vineyards once in a blue moon!) I was over the moon, then, to work with bride, Dennielle, on her vintage vineyard themed wedding suite. We created a custom monogram with the small grape cluster etching which we pulled throughout the design. The whole suite was bound with a grosgrain pinstriped navy ribbon which was used throughout the decor as well. Have a peak!
Attached is a new design we just put together using vintage type. This Lowcountry Save the Date will be flat-printed front and back with coordinating kraft or dove grey envelopes. We’re loving the blush and charcoal combo!
Just a quick pic of the Save the Date we did for bride, Lindsey. I love her custom lettering we did on her kraft envelopes!
Again I’m teaming up with the lovely ladies at Mac & Murphy Stationery shop here in Charleston. Here’s the design we just finished for our “Spoleto Gate” inspired save the date we did a few weeks ago. I am so fond of how wrought iron illustrations come out when letterpressed. This one is going to be so fun to print!
here’s the corresponding save the date:
If it’s not already obvious, I love all things Southern! So my excitement was no surprise when bride, Megan, came to me wanting to incorporate this classic Southern flower into her wedding stationery. I’m loving what we’ve come up with so far!
Charleston is known for it’s classic wrought iron throughout the city. I’m often incorporating these ornate patterns into my designs. We just finished up reworking one of our classics into a postcard style Save the Date for bride, Ainsley.
Charleston’s Spoleto Festival is one of the city’s most anticipated events. Many people from all over the country make their yearly trip to Charleston in early Summer to revel in the Festival’s glory! I’m teaming up with the gals of Mac and Murphy Stationery for their bride and groom, Sara and Scott, who wanted to incorporate the festival’s iron gate motif into their wedding stationery. We built the design around the iron gate, which is located at the festival’s historic offices. Here’s what we have for their Save the Date so far!
Just finished up a fun design for bride and groom, Caroline & Victor, who wanted their custom Save the Date to incorporate two Lowcountry style houses. We strung the little houses (one feminine and the other more masculine) with flags in their wedding colors of peach and blush. I’m just loving designing with blush and grey this season – a color combination I both love and anticipated using!
When Megan came to me to work on her wedding paper, I was more than thrilled! Her classically Sweet & Southern wedding sounded like just my kind of wedding! We had such a great time coming up with a fun, yet elegant wedding stationery package for her. The design is a fusion of Southern elements from peacock feathers & banjos to silhouettes & lace. I love this new collection!
here’s a closer look at the graphic with peacock feather, monograms & banjos:
These are the dog days of summer – the print shop is broiling and there are jobs waiting to be printed. It was nice to take a break and work on a project for this coming winter. Here’s the first look at the Save the Date we’ll be doing for new bride, Chloe. Chloe and Paul are planning a New Year’s Eve wedding and want a classic clean art-deco look. The double sided Save the Date will have a custom hand-drawn map included. We’re working on that now!
we just finished up the map for Chloe’s Save the Date.
We’re still playing around with the Lowcountry themed Save the Date. I’m loving this motif!
I was so excited to meet with new bride, Whitney, yesterday! I loved hearing her ideas! Whitney is planning a Spring 2012 wedding and has a beautiful vision for a lowcountry inspired wedding Invitation and Save the Date. I’ve just finished up a couple Save the Date designs which we will print on a smooth matte stock with a patterned back held in a ribbed kraft envelope. Whitney’s colors are as she describes them: “soft gray, ivory, blush pink, green, taupe. All things neutral!” I can’t wait to get to work on her Invitation which we’re going to do in an all-script font in this same neutral-tone palette!
I love love love calligraphy! It is one of those arts that just amaze me. I can sit and watch you tube videos of calligraphers for hours. So I’m always so excited when a bride comes to me wanting to use custom calligraphy in her design. January bride, Paige, wanted a full calligraphy hand-drawn map for her Save the Date. I suggested Jennifer Cota of Pretty Pen Jen for this project. Jen has a fun flourished youthful style that I thought would be perfect for this! Here is the postcard style Save the Date that will be going out soon!
