May's Custom Invitation Recap

No, It's not a mistake. I somehow overlooked updating the blog for most of May and June. Somehow meaning this: wedding season kicked our butts and we had a family vacation (closing the studio for a week) smack dab in the middle. Things are finally getting back on track and we are happy to share some of our favorite summer projects with you below.

Here's a lovely pocketfold we created for an October wedding. A rich chocolate brown pocket topped with the white and champagne regalia pattern.....and finished with wasabi and ecru papers. A perfect combination for a warm fall evening!

This pocketfold was designed for a bride that lives in the Akron/Canton area but is getting married around Lake Tahoe. Although the wedding is on the small side - it's going to be packed with fun. With so much to do in the area, (not to mention a stunning invitation) I'd bet that she ends up with more guests than expected!

This invitation was actually designed by the bride (Katie) and printed and assembled by us. Katie lives in the Columbus area and works as a fashion designer for Abercrombie. When it came to the invitation design, she already knew what she wanted....she just needed an avenue to get there. With 4 great minds working together (her awesome mom included!) a gorgeous final product was achieved.

We designed this invitation for a bride who calls herself "The pickiest bride God ever made". While it did take several visits and mock ups to achieve the final design, I have to say that this is one of the most beautiful invitation ensembles we have ever made. I am a big fan of monochromatic design so I loved the subtle colors and simple paisley design.

These accessories were for Amy and Jeremy's June 13th wedding held at the Tudor House. Amy helped make her own invitations (we designed and printed them - she assembled them) and we are still waiting for her to send pictures of the final product! The programs, table cards and place cards are shown - but we also made a ton of various signage used throughout the reception which can be seen throughout the Ceremony Recap on Heidzilla's blog. I think we'll be seeing a lot more of Heidi in the coming months as she seems to be the most talked about coordinator in years!

These Table Cards, Favor Tags and Thank You cards were all made to coordinate with the first invitation listed in this weekly recap.

These Table Cards (along with matching placecards which are not shown) were made to coordinate with an invitation shown here weekly recap.

Wine Cork Place Cards for Chuck and Brookes wedding in California. These turned out SO awesome! The bride and groom ordered wine corks online and used a bread knife to cut one side flat and then slit the top. A perfect addition to the tone they set when they sent their plantable invitations.
