Sarah and Michael’s Modern Old Hollywood Invitations

Sarah and Michael and their invi­ta­tion suite are my favorite client/paper combo to date. The two of them have the best style and an affin­ity for Hova and Bey. Seri­ously, what’s not to love? We brought both to their paper story comb­ing the feel of Old Hol­ly­wood with hip-hop inspired lyrics. It all started with their foil stamped Save the Date. At first glance, you see a super-glamorous card – but wait – the words “win­ing and grind­ing” appear in a beau­ti­ful foil stamped script. It’s this com­bi­na­tion of luxe with lingo that really gets me fired up – in a good way! The design of their Save the Date car­ried over to the invi­ta­tion suite which was let­ter­press printed and gold foil stamped on 110# Crane’s Let­tra. The main invi­ta­tion was kept for­mal with ele­gant details and tra­di­tional word­ing. It’s on the enclo­sure cards where we let loose with fun lan­guage. Guests were asked to “Pop cham­pagne and make it rain” and were invited “After the party (to) the hotel lobby” for a recov­ery brunch. Of course this rap-inspired suite wouldn’t be com­plete with­out a mix tape. This cheeky card guided guests to their wed­ding web­site for all the cel­e­bra­tion details.

Also fea­tured in BRIDES Mag­a­zine and on Oh So Beau­ti­ful Paper.

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!
