Perhaps one of my favorite projects to date for Just Ink On Paper. Sheilah and Chris came to me looking for custom invitations for their DC wedding this past October at The Fairfax at Embassy Row. A stunning location with presidential ties (the restaurant within the Hotel was a favorite of Jackie O's).

Both Sheilah and Chris have strong connections with DC and wanted to tie that into their wedding stationery. The challenge was to incorporate that without looking too "touristy". Their pieces were designed to be a "nod" to DC without being a blatant image. The Save The Dates worked perfectly with the decor of The Farifax, something very important to Sheilah. The wax seal came from a brainstorming session one afternoon while looking at a few designs and plays a prominent factor in their invitations as well. What I love about these save the dates is the incorporation of the black pocketfold. I think a few brides shy away from black for fear of looking to harsh, but it can be done beautifully.

There is a new blog on the scene, and sure to be one of the biggest and hottest around. United With Love, a blog brought to us by Julianne of The Garter Girl by Julianne Smith and Nole of Oh So Beautiful Paper™. The site just launched a few days ago and is already stunningly beautiful with vendor guides, real weddings, inspirations and tips and tricks. While the blog is "DC-Area" based, brides should take note that they are defining the area of DC "as anything from Baltimore, MD to Charlottesville, VA – as far west at the Shenandoah mountains and as far east as Annapolis, MD and the Eastern Shore region."

Just Ink On Paper is thrilled to be included in the vendor guide as well!
