The newest edition of Southern New England Weddings Destination recently hit news stands and featured inside is a bevvy of pastel-hued pics. As seen from the previous post, this girl is crushing on all things mint, pink and gold and this editorial shoot delivered them in spades! I really adore the whitewashed feeling of the images with pops of pure, saturated color. Vintage gowns, whimsical props and cheerful florals were layered together to create a visual feast. When it came to designing the paper, I took inspiration from these elements by combining a languid script with vintage floral illustrations.

Kelly and John’s vision for their wedding was for it to be fun and full of surprises with simple pops of color. I love bringing an element of discovery to custom stationery and was excited to get started on this project! With their delicious color palette of mint, pink and gold, we created an accordion style Save the Date. The card featured the details on the front and a chevron-inspired pattern on the back. On the last panel, a mini glassine envelope was attached that contained tissue paper confetti and a small card with their wedding website. Who doesn’t get excited by confetti?! The design carried over to their invitation suite where celebratory wording married playful typography and the pattern from the Save the Date was used on the envelope liners. The finishing touch: lovely calligraphy by Molly Jaques!
Kacie and her mom, Kathy, came to me with an idea they had seen on Oh Happy Day. They wanted to incorporate the poppers into Kacie’s bridal shower invitation. Having loved the idea for a long time, I was excited to get to work! The custom designed popper and invitation were placed into a clear plastic box and loads of chartreuse crinkle fill kept the items snuggly in place. A wrap around label sealed the box shut and custom stamps finished the look. The invitation design was carried over to accessories for the party including patterned straws with fun flags, cute cupcake toppers and personalized cocktail napkins.
