FEATURED EVENT: Candice + Jared

I had the pleasure of designing pocketfold invitations for Candice and Jared's summer wedding! When Candice and I started talking, she had a variety of really cool and unique ideas that she wanted her invitation design to incorporate. I loved that she made me think outside of the box and was so creative! Candice wanted her invitations to reflect vintage romance with birds, birdcages, and lace! She is a court reporter, and to tie that in, she selected to go with a vintage typewriter font. She had seen this image that featured an invitation that had an image "span" across all of the inserts, and after some playing around with it, we got the same idea to work for her design. After a couple of revisions, the whole design really came together and is still one of my favorite designs we've done to date. The design was brought together with metallic merlot pocketfolds, dove gray cardstock and envelopes, and matte white cardstock. Each pocketfold was finished with a merlot sheer ribbon band. Candice had a family friend do calligraphy on each of the envelopes too!

Candice put so much thought into her wedding. They selected a beautiful venue surrounded by rich colors and vintage details! Candice even sketched the bridesmaid dresses and had them made! It's no wonder that her wedding was featured on so many websites including Project Wedding! We were beyond thrilled to see her wedding and our invitations featured on their website!

Candice has now started her own photography business, Love, Candee and I am so excited to see where her new business takes her and to be helping her design her new logo! Check out her website!

Below are some professional pictures that the talented, Jordana Hazel of Hazelnut Photography, took of the invitations and wedding! Enjoy!

Monday Matinae | "Beauty and the Beast" Styling with Jessica Frey

This winter, we got the opportunity to design for a unique shoot that Jessica of Jessica Frey Photography was putting together!  I can't tell you how excited we were to design for this and finally get the chance to work with her!  Jessica has done several fairy tale inspired shoots that are aimed to help brides find modern fairy tale inspiration. Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!
