"Will You Be My..." cards for the guys!
The "Will You Be My..." cards have been so popular this wedding season! They are a great way to ask your friends and family to be a part of your special day and to give them alot of the information they'll need. One of our couples recently came to us and wanted to order cards for her girls but also do cards for the guys! What a great idea! Lakers ended up being the theme for these cards. We created a folded card out of actual basketball textured paper! I designed a Laker inspired logo using the name for each guy and we customized the wording to include some basketball references. :) Here are pictures of the final project including the one we did for the ring bearer!
Here is a teaser of the cards we did for the girls! I'll blog these soon!

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…
