Because the bride wanted the outdoors to feature prominently on her big day, my team and I decided to focus on the prettiest, most feminine aspects of nature. Working with a lavender and purple palette, we made sure to include blossoms and branches on practically every surface we could think of, from the envelopes to the thank you cards that were to come. The final, statement-making touch was a laser-cut bellyband of flowers that wrapped around the main card.
A match made in heaven – and I’m not only talking about Barbara and Timothy! Barbara is a perfectionist and so am I. Playing off their German heritage and love for the outdoors, I created a wonderland of whimsical inviting amusement. The forest was complete with little deer, squirrels and even their initials carved into the tree trunk. When the invite slid out, the edelweiss floral belly band created the finishing layer revealing the bride and groom’s names. It was the perfect balance between playful and chic – complete paper sophistication!
Brooke came to me with a hippo and a piece of African kitenge fabric she had cherished from their travels and work in Africa. She had no idea how these would translate into her invitations. A cultural design challenge! I took this as an opportunity to create their own custom print and not only worked it into their paper but even created fabrics that Brooke used for the table runners and groomsmen ties! I carried the details into the escort cards incorporating her hippo and other fun icons I made to symbolize their celebration.
Hand drawn Mexican tile patterns, authentic embroidery designs, combined with beautiful details from the intricate embroidery from Katharine’s dress were the inspiration for this wedding in Cabo San Lucas. The natural toned outside of the custom-made, 4-petal envelope complemented the bright pop colors that were revealed as guests opened the envelope. The custom pattern continued from the invite to match the inside lining of the envelope.
From the moment I met Jennifer, her dream was to have an invitation that had a serious wow factor. Getting married at the Breakers Palm Beach required a design that would not only compliment the hotel’s grand architecture, but also feature her love of ornate detailing and tropical orchids. I created an uber luxurious invitation in a handmade box, wrapped in soft blush velvet and finished with a hand carved metal monogrammed clasp. When guests opened the invite, each side neatly presented guests with all their travel details and response set.
