Tammi + Ronald: Chandelier Inspired Wedding Invitations

I've been talking to Tammi for over a year. From the beginning, Tammi knew that she wanted a chandelier on her invitation suite to depic the style of her 1840's Ballroom wedding.

I really wanted hang the chandelier differently on these invitations. I designed a chain to hang from the "ceiling". The black invitation with silver writing is very stiking and I added a silver backing to accent it further. A swarovski crystal "hangs" from the bottom of the chandelier for another punch of "wow".

The RSVP postcards were designed with chandelier postage stamp that also hangs from the postcard from a chain.

The front of the post is personalized for each guest so there is no need for a line to fill in the names. The chandelier hangs from the amethyst ribbon which is Tammi's accent color.

The reception card has three chandeliers and was designed in black with silver writing.

The black envelopes have a metallic silver envelope wrap and another chandelier custom stamp.

Courtney's Central Park, New York City Wedding


Courtney contacted me just a few weeks ago and asked if I could design a seating chart, table numbers and menus for her wedding at the Central Park Boathouse. I've watched so many movies that take place on the terrace of the restaurant, I just couldn't pass it up. Ironically, 27 Dresses (which takes place at the Boathouse) came on television just as I was designing her pieces - it was meant to be. :) It started with her New York skyline and Central Park seating chart.

Tree lined table numbers.

Menus to be wrapped in ivory linens.

Vy + Hau: Floral Vietnamese Invitations


Vy asked me to design her fall wedding invitations. The big challenge? She needed the invitations in Vietnamese also! Although challenging, Vy was so much fun to work with. Even though she kept thanking me for being patient with her, I was thankful she was so kind and clear on the changes with a language that I didn't even recognize the letters. I give her and her family a large amount of gratitude to believe that I could pull these off as well.

There will be branches in her centerpieces with flowers so I designed these invitations with a branch and floral graphic.

I did something fun with her insert package. I wrapped them with two different colors of ribbon. Her colors were so fun in chocolate, orange and cotton candy pink.

Custom maps were designed for her ceremony at Mission Santa Clara de Asise and the San Jose City Hall Rotunda wedding reception.

The vietnamese invitation suite was designed slightly different to satisfy many cultural differences.

Julie + Jason: Monogram Elegance


Julie's Royal Park Hotel wedding is going to be very modern, elegant, and romantic. At a venue like that, how could it not be. :) She had a very clear image of how she wanted her invitation to look, right down to the fonts and the monogram.


The invitation was designed with a very elegant line border broken up with a few dots and swirls in each corner.


The inserts were wrapped with a piece of deep burgundy ribbon with a seal on the front designed with their monogram.


The RSVP postcard was designed with custom stamps and has the same frame-and-dot border on the back. The reception card is gorgeous with swirls.


The outer envelopes are a deep brown and were wrapped with envelope sashes and a monogram custom stamp.

Kelli + Michael: Vintage Lace Inspired

Kelli came to me from a referral from Dionne at The Shooting Gallery. Her Detroit Athletic Club wedding is going to have a vintage feel. Kelli sent me some key photos of items, including her amazing vintage lace wedding dress and I knew I had my inspiration.


Kelli's colors are so gorgeous - raspberry, blueberry, and pale silver. I custom designed this gatefold for her, with a removable invitation and the inserts held in with a sash.


The invitation close and the sash wraps around. I designed it with the same magenta lace graphic.


The RSVP card was designed to give an area for the guests to write in a small message and fuschia lace custom stamps were designed for the pale silver RSVP envelopes.


Magenta reception cards with navy lace.


Custom maps were designed with parking and hotel information.


More custom stamps were designed for the outer envelope.

Ali's Baker's Twine and Custom Pencil Invitations


These are my most favoritist shower invitations ever. :) Yes - favoritist is my new word for these awesome box invitations.

The invitation is to a bridal luncheon held the day before the wedding. It will be held at Federal Grove in Kentucky with fun events like decorating your own dancing shoes and a blue grass band.

Ali wants the event to be very personal. We included a custom red golf pencil with a questionnare for each guest to bring to the luncheon. Ali is going to do personal notes to each guest as her placecards.

The custom pencils are stamped with Ali+Dan. LOVE!

The red box mailers are held shut with custom designed labels addressed with the guest's address.

Amy's Circle and Dots Wedding Reception

Letterpress coasters with dots and circles and their monogram.

Circle fan programs! I designed the wedding party to go around the circle as well.

Placecards that Amy assembled onto lollipop stick and were then stuck into small jars with rock candy.

Tags to hang from flowers. Each guest will be given a flower to place in vases in honor of Amy's mother.

Kris' Damask Inspired Wedding Reception


Kris' Damask Inspired Invitations were so beautiful with the fleur de lis like graphic. The programs and other pieces just had to have as much of the graphic as possible. I did the seating chart with a small border on one side.



The programs have a cover of the black and white damask with their names in the reveal.

And the table numbers are stunning in all damask with white numbers.
