Wedding Invitations : Carmela & George

Believe it or not, Carmela is one of my early clients. I first discussed designing her invitations in February of this year! She asked me in February for her December wedding! In the interim months, Carmela and I have become friends. Also over the course of several months, she has forwarded a multitude of ideas for invitations. This particular suite was a collaboration between Carmela and myself. She is definitely a bride who has a specific look and feel for her wedding.

In the end, I used these items as sources of inspiration for Carmela & George's invitations.

Wedding Invitations from Smock Paper

The no-longer-in-print Blueprint Magazine

Pattern from Carmela's Centerpiece Stand

Fabric I discovered in the Fashion District

All of these items combined to produce this.....

Carmela made the labels and boxed each invitation

The pocketfold is comprised of printed duplex linen cardstock.
I hand-assembled all 140 pocketfolds!

In the end, Carmela and I had a great time collaborating on this suite. I hope her guests will be as excited about them as I am.


Wedding Paper Accessories: Janice & J.D.

Janice contacted me a few weeks ago to design more items. She and J.D. had successfully printed and assembled the invitations I had designed for them. They were ready to tackle more DIY items. I admire a couple with determination. I happily obliged them and they ran with it.

Janice and J.D. are friends of ours. My husband and I were invited to their celebration. I had the opportunity to see everything firsthand.

Here are photos of my design coupled with their handiwork.

Table Numbers & Programs : Pam & Geoff

I am behind on blogging. Thankfully, it's not because of a lack of work. I am fortunate enough to have been VERY busy the last couple of weeks. Here is the first of several recaps.

Geoff & Pam contacted me to create Table Numbers and Programs to match the invitations I designed for them a few weeks back. They really wanted table numbers with images of themselves growing up through the years. So, I happily obliged. I incorporated the dahlia art from their invitations. I used a burgundy linen cardstock with Japanese hydrangea paper. Each number was printed on matte photo paper.

Here's a small sample of what they looked like.




Additionally, they asked me to design and print their programs for them. I designed a simple square-shaped program that was similar to my friend Wendy's Wedding programs. Again, I incorporated a graphic from their invitation on the cover. For these, I used burgundy 30% PWC cardstock, Japanese hydrangea paper, Stardream Opal Text and Classic Linen Text paper.

Here's a look at the finish product. The green hydrangea paper is actual much darker in person than in the photographs.
