Weddings are in full season and keeping things quite busy these days. First up are Simone and Joe's invitations for their October wedding in Boston. Simone wanted invitations that had a vintage and modern aspect...something a lot of brides these days are looking for. She choose the Layla design from the collection, but really made the most of it with the dark purples and golds. Simone is such a sweet bride who is also an aspiring wedding planner. If you are in NYC, keep an eye out for her.

You might remember Kate and Steve's Save the Dates from a bit ago, I wanted to share their wedding invitations. Kate wanted her invitations to be very classic, nothing too flashy or bold. Using the same color palette as her save the dates, we choose to keep everything fresh and clean with just a little hint of color throughout. The belly bands are the same stock used in her save the dates, as well as the peony artwork, although in a completely different format. The peony filled almost the entire reception card, just to add a touch of sweetness and romance. It just proves that you really can not go wrong with beautifully classic wedding invitations. We are in the final stages of her reception items (including a mad lib card!), so check back for a look at what we did.

While I try not to get too personal with my own life on this blog, I recently remembered that my own wedding was featured on a blog a little bit ago. This blog is Baltimore-centric, and provides great research for brides getting married in the area. It's been one of my favorites and was saddened to read in a post that it might not be around much longer? I really hope she continues on! You can read the Charm City Bride blog here.
While planning our wedding, I was working full-time for a design firm in Baltimore, but created all the paper products (invitations, programs, and reception items) for our wedding. I never realized how much work is involved in creating wedding stationery and I have been a professional designer for almost 10 years. While I loved every minute of it, I drastically underestimated how time-consuming the process is. For brides considering DIY stationery, think long and hard beforehand of the time/energy/materials involved in pulling off this feat. As I always say, your invitations are the first and (sometimes) only glimpse your guests will see of your wedding, make it count! This link below will take you directly to the feature full of all the details from our big day.
Really wish I had some of those Amaretti cookies from Vaccaro's right about now....
Special thanks to our amazing photographer Roman Grinev of Roman Grinev Photography.

KC just sent over her beautiful pictures from her wedding on July 17th at the Evergreen Museum in Baltimore. One of the perks of my job is swooning over such photos, and these are no exception. In addition to her invitations, I also designed the fan programs for their outside ceremony. It was difficult narrowing down the selection of stunning photos, many thanks to ArtfulWeddings.com by Sachs Photography for capturing such beautiful work.

You might remember Allison and Dan's wedding invitations posted a while back for their wedding the Resort at Singer Island on December 20th. Allison was gracious enough to send me a few beautiful photos from her wedding and details shots of her reception items. I am sure you can agree that Allison made a stunning bride, I am in love with the flower in her hair!
