Grand Cayman Island Illustrated Map

Monica and Ryan commissioned this map as part of their destination wedding invitations. We enjoyed learning about the island during our research for the project. And of course, the excuse to use bright colors (and lots of them) was a treat!

Tattoo Design

A change of pace from invitation design, we recently created a tattoo design based on the bride's love of yoga and her wedding date.

Wedding at The Hotel Hershey

Kiah and Matt were married at The Hotel Hershey last September. While there on a visit earlier in the year, she fell in love with this rug in one of the hotel's public spaces. The rug design inspired the border we created for her letterpress wedding invitations and response cards.

Key West Destination Wedding "After Party"

Suzanne and Jim had a small wedding ceremony in Key West, then returned home to New Jersey to throw a celebratory party for their friends and extended families. The wedding locale provided a festive color scheme for their post-nuptial invitations. We accented both Key West and New Jersey in the photographs on their response postcard and hand-lettered a "logo" for both use on both pieces.

Sunny and "Cheerful" Wedding Invitations

Brigette and Matt's  (see their Save the Date postcard here)  summer wedding invitation suite is an example of how a good design can be quite simple and interesting at the same time. We based the plaid belly band on the ribbon used for the flower girl's dress sash, and the sunny colors tied everything together.

Alison & Ridge's Nautical Wedding

It is always wonderful to see pictures of our clients' events. These beautiful photographs of Alison & Ridge's August, 2011 wedding were taken by John Arcara. Clark's Landing Yacht Club in Point Pleasant served as a gorgeous backdrop for the reception shots. We carried the nautical theme through from save the date cards and invitations to menus, table cards, and seating cards. Tables were named for different sailing knots, and we coordinated illustrations of each knot on the backs of the seating cards.

Hand-drawn Monogram & Batik Paper

January brings with it new couples, new challenges, and new collaborations. Much of the beginning of the year is devoted to initial meetings with clients and the first steps towards fresh creations.

We met with Kelly and Chris around this time last year to design their June wedding invitations. They wanted a more traditional look than their baseball-themed Save the Date tickets (a motif to which we returned in their seating and table assignments). Traditional didn't need to mean boring, so we hand-lettered a monogram and chose a batik paper for the belly band. A turquoise envelope liner was yet another tool we implemented to help show their fun personalities.
