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!
Although the majority of my work is wedding related, sometimes I get the opportunity to design party/shower invitations and baby announcements. As many of my friends and past brides are starting families, I hope to start designing more!
Finally, at 31 years old, I made my first turkey and hosted Thanksgiving dinner for my small side of the family. I am proud to say it was a delicious success! I wanted to share a few images from the day.
Of course, I was most excited about decorating, setting my table and making some cute place cards. I even got fancy and bought some cloth napkins.
I am pretty frugal, so I always look for ways to do things on the cheap without sacrificing style. My chargers are from the Dollar Tree. I found the glasses ($2 ea), napkins ($4 / 8) and gold candles ($2 / 4) and glitter runner ($4) at the Christmas Tree Shop. Everything else I already had.
Also, just a side note, my chandelier was a yard sale find ($3), my husband spray painted and hung the crystal beads. One of my best finds ever -- and it looked so pretty with the gold candlesticks.
And my favorite moment of the day....Mr. Ace thought he had died and gone to heaven when I pulled the turkey out of the oven :) Yes, he did get his own plate.
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!
Nicole and Stephen kept it sweet and simple. It goes to show a little really does go a long way. The raspberry purple paper pops against the neutral sand and ivory paper and ribbon. Love it!
Congratulations to Nicole and Stephen.
You've picked out your linens and decided on centerpieces for the big day with great care. Now why would you want those cheesy, plastic black and white table numbers as the finishing touch?
Complete your table with a beautiful table number. Think about whether you would like a tented card, or a flat card that can slip into a decorative frame or easel.
Many couples are getting extra creative with their tables by naming or using numbers that have special significance to them. For example, the a street address of a first apartment, birthdays, or the date they met. The list goes on.
It can be simple or layered with rhinestones, either way it's a fantastic detail not to forget.
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!
