Theresa & Ari : Wedding Day Accents


For Theresa and Ari's wedding day, I designed ceremony programs, and created escort cards, table numbers and signage to coordinate with their wedding invitations.   We used the striped paper wraps as an accent on the table number cards and used different colored tented backings on the escort cards to signify their guests' dinner selections.

Lauren & Joel : Wedding Invitations

Lauren contacted me a year and a half ago after getting engaged and before she had a set wedding date!  Her fiancĂ© is the brother of Lisa, so she was familiar with my work and knew the she wanted to work together on her wedding invitations and day-of stationery.

The style for Lauren and Joel's wedding day is romantic and elegant, but simple and fun, and the color scheme is midnight blue, ivory, and champagne gold, with accents of burgundy red.  Lauren loved the shimmery navy blue paper and the paisley print, so we did mailing envelopes and pocket cards in the blue and used the paisley throughout.  The paisley and the script type that we used added the perfect touch of whimsy, and the contrast of the navy with ivory and champagne is really striking and sophisticated.  I love how these turned out!

Before the Big Day : Rehearsal Dinner Invitations

Before the big day, the bride, groom and their wedding party typically practice and rehearse the ceremony and then gather for a rehearsal dinner, traditionally hosted by the groom's parents.  Rehearsal dinner invitations should complement the style and formality of the wedding, but it is an opportunity to have fun with a different color scheme, creative wording, or a special design theme.
