Ruth and Bryan – It’s all in the details!

I get to work with so many lovely brides and grooms, which makes it really, really difficult to pick favorites, but this one is definitely towards the top of the list 🙂 Ruth and Bryan got married at the gorgeous Kirkland Country Club in Ohio. We had the pleasure of working with them on their save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, coasters, down to details like pen holders! We designed an organic, a little bit vintage, fresh look that complimented the relaxed, garden-feel of the country club. The modern floral patterns, coupled with an abstract basket-weave pattern created a look that is elegant, formal but still festive and young! This feel was further accented with a gorgeous hand-drawn monogram that we infused into several different items within their stationery wardrobe. Their wedding colors of Navy and Marigold yellow were just great to work with as well.

The best part of it all is how exquisitely our designs were integrated into their event decor. Ruth is an industrial designer and has a flair for putting things together beautifully, as these images clearly show! I love it when couples can use their paper graphics to enhance the feel of their wedding day, and this is how custom design truly shines! For this reason, I always encourage brides and grooms to start their paper selection early on in their engagement, as the look and feel introduced in your paper goods can be a great platform to bounce from for all other wedding planning ideas.

Here are some images of the complete paper ensemble we designed for the lovely couple and other wedding details!

Nikki and Josh – A complete paper story

This year I had the wonderful opportinity to work with Pam Barefoot from A Trendy Wedding, on the entire stationery package for her client’s, Nikki and Josh. Nikki and Josh’s wedding was kind of quirky and playful, kind of vintage and farmer’s market, a bit rustic and a bit whimsical. They used a lot of vintage finds for both outdoor and indoor areas. Of course, their stationery had to reflect the same sensibility, so here is what we created.

The complete set. Save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, signage and place cards.

Yes, we printed their invitation on wood veneer!

I just love how there are so many different design elements in the complete set, but they all come together so beautifully! This is exactly what I love to do–design everything from the very first piece to the last. A complete experience!
