Sarah’s Nautical Wedding Stationery

JUST MARRIED!!! Congratulations to Sarah and George! A HUGE thank you to Sarah for sharing her nautical wedding photos with us by Justin Pedrick Photography! And thank you to Justin for allowing me to share your photos!

I TRULY enjoyed working with Sarah (who is a designer) on her custom nautical wedding invitations, save the date cards, table cards, place cards, and thank yous! Love the fact that she used Pantone® Spring 2013 colors MONACO BLUE and POPPY RED in her unique design! First, I hand-painted a row boat in watercolor for her wedding invitations. Printed on thick 110lb. white cardstock and layered in sapphire metallic and jupiter red metallic sparkling cardstocks. Each invite was wrapped with a hand-tied wraphia ribbon around the center adorned with a handmade tag reading: “Live, Love, Sail.”

The font SATISFACTION was a perfect match for the overall nautical sea-worthy design. Sarah and George are avid sailors and wanted each table card to be named after a boat they have sailed! Adorable idea.

Each place card boasted a custom designed anchor logo, hearts, guest names, food choices, and table name. All organized and fit perfectly!

Now that Sarah’s custom design is complete it will find a home in our Signature Collection Wedding Invitations gallery.

What a GREAT joy it was working with Sarah and her mother Mary! xoxoxo

Elegant Beach Wedding Invitations + Beach Wedding Ideas

An Elegant Beach Wedding? Absolutely! I have to say this destination wedding in Florida tops the charts of my MOST favorite beach weddings EVERRR! Today I was pleasantly surprised to receive a link to one of our client’s beach wedding photos!!!! I am still blown away by the attention to detail and elegance in this tropical wedding!

A HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you is in order to Bob Care Photography for allowing me to share my client’s photos with you. I had a hard time choosing the best to share! I just may have to do another post or two to share them all with you!!!

I personally worked with the mother-of-the-bride and the bride-to-be on her custom beach wedding stationery. My Personal Artist  created the wedding invitations, accommodation cards, estate address and wedding website cards, reply cards, wedding menus personalized with each guest name, place cards with the Florida Keys in watercolor and printed with each guest name, table cards with each Florida Key, and thank you cards. All wedding stationery boasted tropical beach themed artwork in watercolor. The pocket folder was great for this destination and kept all stationery perfectly organized. I created the idea that a starfish would MARK the Florida Key where the guest would be seated on the place cards. These place card tags were attached to miniature bottles of Tequila. The table cards then coordinated with the Florida Key on the seating cards. As you can see I hand-painted the two palm trees {the couple is standing under in the first photo} for the stationery.

I truly love this wedding and the elegance achieved! Hats off to all involved.

Butterfly Wedding Invitations + Ideas

After receiving several requests for butterfly wedding invitations, I felt the NEED to find the perfect butterfly wedding ideas for an ELEGANT butterfly garden theme. After much searching I finally found the perfect butterfly favors, wedding cake with butterflies, butterfly bouquet, and wedding attire to match the beautiful theme. I love the idea of an orange bridesmaid dress because of the vibrant orange wings of a monarch. Splashes of lilac and crisp black pull the look together. Other fun wedding colors for a butterfly theme wedding are bright cobalt blue and bright pink!

Green Leaves Wedding Invitations + Ideas

Fresh, Clean, and Green! I just LOVE the look of this green leaves wedding cake, green leaves centerpiece, crisp black tux, and gorgeous green bridesmaid gown with my new green leaves wedding invitations design. This time I designed the wedding invitation first then went on the search for the most perfect wardrobe, cake, and centerpiece to match the leaves theme. Next, I paired the perfect colors to make this modern wedding color scheme happen for YOU. I wanted to achieve an elegant nature themed mood board that still boasted nature.

Purple Wedding Invitations

Inspired by a wedding cake! Again. Yes. I am guilty. When my client emailed me a pic of this wedding cake as one of her inspirational wedding photos, I creatively lost it. The royal purple POPS. Paired with silver. I LOVE! And anemone flowers? They are oh so sweet. This cake was screaming for me to design an invite to match. So I did. Fluffy lavender flowers in watercolor surround the bright purple anemone. The silver metallic pocketfolder just seemed right. View more photos of my newest Purple Anemone Wedding Invitations now.
