Gemstone Bat Mitzvah on Style Me Pretty Living

The gals over at A Jubilee Event dreamed up this bright, sparkly, gemstone-inspired coming-of-age affair. What resulted was a youth­ful yet sophis­ti­cated cel­e­bra­tion with a sat­u­rated color palette.

When cre­at­ing sta­tionery, I always look for oppor­tu­ni­ties to bring whim­si­cal ele­ments to the design. My favorite parts of this suite are the response options on the RSVP – “Shine on!” with a shin­ing dia­mond check box – and the cus­tom postage stamp on the response enve­lope that looks like a dia­mond ring. Lit­tle details like this are sure to delight guests!

To see the full fea­ture visit Style Me Pretty Liv­ing.

Julia & Jamil’s Wedding | WellWed & Style Me Pretty

The love story of Julia and Jamil began in Cape Cod at a two-day char­ity bike ride. At a water stop on day one, Julia’s team­mates noticed Jamil and rec­og­nized him from busi­ness school. On the sec­ond day of the ride, Jamil stopped to help another one of Julia’s team­mates who had got­ten into a bad bike acci­dent. To thank him, they invited Jamil out for cel­e­bra­tory team drinks a few nights after the ride. Julia and Jamil hit it off and the rest is history!

To cap­ture their love story, Julia and Jamil wanted to incor­po­rate bicy­cles into their sta­tionery suite. And to quote Julia “I don’t want some­thing tra­di­tional and stuffy.” Done and done! Together, we worked with Jamil’s sis­ter, Gail, to bring cus­tom illus­tra­tions to the invi­ta­tion. I designed a tri­fold card, that when unfolded, shows them rid­ing sep­a­rately and then together on a tan­dem bike as they bike to their nup­tials. In the back­ground is a cot­tage and Big Ben, a nod to where they met and Jamil’s home country.

The bicy­cle theme con­tin­ued to their wed­ding day where the tables were named after var­i­ous bicy­cle brands and a bicy­cle bell favor was set at each place set­ting. The menus were inspired by the invi­ta­tions and fea­tured more of Gail’s cus­tom illustrations.

Thank you to Well­Wed and Style Me Pretty for the features!
