I had the pleasure of designing Heidi and Brian's wedding stationery. Heidi is the sister of my friend Lori Witmer of Wildflowers by Design. So as you can imagine, having a florist for a sister equals amazing wedding decor. In fact, I just discovered that their wedding is featured in Lancaster County Magazine January 2013 issue. (Hoping to get my hands on a copy!)
Here are a few images. Check out all of the lovely images of the day courtesy of (mattnnat).
Hands down the most creative invitations I designed in 2012! Alicia and Drew had a true vision for their "Alice in Wonderland" wedding. I was super excited to dive into these. The challenge was combining so many bright colors and yet keeping it romantic and elegant.
A quote from Alice was included on the invitation.
I had the pleasure of working long-distance with Denise and Stephen.
Denise was inspired by Vera Bradely "Very Berry" paisley print for her wedding colors. I incorporated a similar paisley border on the invitations. Tri-fold programs were also designed to match.
I've been trying to catch up and post all of the weddings I've done in 2012, and it's proving to be a challenge. Since it's the new year, I had to skip ahead and share my first New Year's Eve wedding with you.
Nicole and Jason were married on Monday night in New Jersey. I've been working with them for over a year, planning and designing so many details for their stationery.
The perfect combo of wedding and party, the New Year's theme was thoughtfully incorporated throughout.
A bowl of resolutions was available for guest to take and make.
Instead of passing out individual ceremony programs, a large chart was placed on a easel listing the wedding party and participants.
Pretty glitter place cards greeted guests at the reception.
Lindsay and Adam requested this unique tab style invitation for their vintage inspired wedding. A matching program was also designed. Pretty green and navy!
Megan and David were married at the historic Majestic Theater in Gettysburg, PA.
Instead of bringing in their own color scheme, they decided to play up the colors of the theater. Deep crimson, black and ivory made a beautiful, elegant combination. A small scroll detail was incorporated to mimic the ornate floor and ceiling in the theater.
The theme was carried throughout the stationery, including programs (not shown), menus, place cards, table numbers and welcome bag stickers.
Brittany and Jake kicked off their rustic, elegant Lancaster County wedding with cute map save the dates. Each city noted the significance to the couple and invited guests to join them in Lancaster for their summer wedding. The reception was held on Brittany's family farm.
The save the dates were followed by panel style invitations utilizing burlap ribbon and wood-grain paper. The inserts were tucked on the backside of the panel. Custom guest addressing was also added to complete the set.
Congrats to Brittany & Jake!
Erin and Tanner celebrated their wedding back on July 6th. Their purple and lime green stationery was really eye-catching. My favorite piece was their large seating board, which has become quite popular in lieu of individual seating cards.
Congratulations to Erin & Tanner! I am now working with Erin's brother and future SIL to create their April invitations!
Jen and Matt had a "modified" beach wedding. The wedding was held at the Lancaster Marriott, so Jen brought the laid back beach style inside.
There were so many details with this wedding. Right down to the basket of flip flops Jen and Matt provided for their guests, so they could kick of their shoes and really enjoy the party!
I loved working with Jen, she had a lot of great ideas and was so excited to see it all come together.
Here are a few lovely images from their wedding captured by The Susquehanna Photographic. You can actually feel the fun!
Navy and hot pink invitations made for a pretty, preppy style for Jessica and Michael's wedding stationery.
The monogram from the invitation was carried throughout the wedding stationery. Other pieces that were designed: place cards, signage, a large seating chart (not shown) and favor stickers.
A great tip for indicating guest meal selections is by using color rhinestones. Blue (for beef) and pink (for chicken) stones were used on the top of their place cards.
Another cool idea I've never seen... they used cd sleeves for their cookie favors. I made the sticker wrap to keep the sleeve closed.
Congratulations to Jessica and Michael!
