Matinae Monday | Natalie + William's Wedding, Pt. 1

MDS has a new look!  We hope you enjoy the blog-site and all of the new features it has!  A huge thank you to Shalon with Pretty Lovely Design for coding everything and getting it up and running! I'm still in the process of updating some of the pages and info but was too excited to launch it to wait any longer. Check back for more updates and posts as I attempt to catch up on blogging. :)

Today, I am so excited to feature Natalie + William's wedding!!  They were married on October 16, 2010 (I told you I'm behind on blogging...you thought I was kidding huh? Haha) at the Noriega House in Bakersfield, California.  We had the opportunity to design several elements to their wedding day.  They choose a color scheme of purple, silver, and a darker shade of gray as an accent.  We designed matte purple "Signature" pocketfolds that featured a silver mat, pearl panel and inserts, and a custom silver embossed monogram.  The invitation was wrapped with a pearl belly band that featured their monogram and was sealed in a silver envelope with dark gray addressing and return addressing.  Programs featuring a die cut cover and gray cording were also made for the ceremony along with a seating chart, table numbers and bride and groom chair signs for the reception.  We also provided the couple with silver chargers, a wrought iron easel and card basket, and napkin folding services.  The bride's mother made homemade jam favors for each guest which we placed on the napkins.  The table set-up looked amazing and complimented the garden setting perfectly!

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

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…

Ken's 50th Birthday | Jack Daniels

We got the chance to design another JD inspired birthday but switched it up a bit this time!  :)  Invitations were created using the design below and layered on white cardstock with coordinating envelopes.  We also got to design cupcake toppers and a bunting!  Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of the bunting before it shipped but each panel was black with the white border design and letters spelling out "Ken's 50th Birthday". Each panel was tied together using black twine. So fun!
