We just finished up a design proposal for bride and groom, Morgan and Brent, who are getting married at Patriot’s Point Links on Charleston Harbor. Morgan wanted to include Tiffany Blue and the couple’s monogram. We added the small starfish graphic to bring in the Charleston/waterfront feel of their venue.
Here’s a quick shot of the finished pieces for Janie and Paul! I’ll never tire of the classic letterpress combo of black, white and red!
Italian bride, Rosanna, contacted me and wanted a custom design for her Vintagey Glamorous wedding in Ireland. I, of course, loved all her design elements, which were Alencon Lace, Camelias, Pearls, Satin Ribbon and the amazing castle where she is getting married: Cloghan Castle in Ireland! The design uses a palette of soft soft silvers and blush pinks and really the design proposals don’t do it justice! It will be letterpressed on to 100% cotton paper and enclosed in the shimmery custom enclosure along with a reply card, envelope, history of Cloghan Castle and Vintage Map of Ireland.
Megan contacted me because she was looking for an invitation with a wrought-iron feel for her January New-Orleans wedding. I was so glad when she shared her engagement story with me! Her fiance popped the question on a traditional New Orleans Street Car, so I, of course, had to find a way to incorporate this into her design. The Street Car illustration’s sweet vintagey feel goes perfectly with the wrought iron which bespeaks New Orleans perfectly. Megan’s palette of golds and mossy green softens the original Iron and Wine design making a completely new feel. I love it! Thanks Megan!
