Notions and snapshots that shape our day to day.

A summer wedding in Newport, Rhode Island… yes please!  Lucky for me, the stationery in this feature was designed for my cousin Scott and his awesome new wife Lisa, so I got to attend this stunner.  The wedding took place at Castle Hill Inn, which is literally atop a rocky cliff over looking the ocean and a light house—it’s really beautiful. Lisa wanted the wedding stationery to compliment the simplicity of the venue but also bring in a little nautical feel—we were in a summer resort town after all!  I think my favorite piece of this wedding suite was the welcome bag, how fun is that graphic?  As designers we rarely get to see our printed pieces in “action”. We think they look good in the studio but actually seeing a place card on a plate and a signature drink sign next to blueberry mojitos makes them real!  Seeing these photos makes me want to do it all over again. I have a lot of cousins up north, who’s next ?!?

Though we work mainly on stationery for weddings, sometimes we have the opportunity to design for awesome birthday parties or corporate events. We’ve found a trend in some of these fun, outdoor events: CHALKBOARD. We enjoy tapping into something different and designing signage with fonts that look hand-written on a chalkboard background. It’s a great trend to try, especially with outdoor summer parties approaching!

This map of Hilton Head Island was the perfect insert for this bride’s welcome packet last November. We loved the different blues and the unique elements, like the sketched iconic Hilton Head lighthouse. Maps are a great way to orient guests to their surroundings while reminding them of important info like times and locations of events.

Maps are a creative and interesting visual to use on any of your wedding stationery—especially for a destination wedding! Lindsay and Douglas were married in the Grand Cayman Islands this past January. The custom map that we painted for their welcome bag oriented guests to all the locations and activities of their wedding weekend. Maps like this look great on save the dates, welcome packets, and any other wedding stationery you can dream of!

For all of the brides that love a cohesive stationery suite, this wedding will strike your fancy! This stunning event from last spring took place at Lowndes Grove Plantation here in Charleston, South Carolina. Designed by Ellen Robinson at WED, each piece of this wedding, from the pillows to the centerpieces, created an elegance that is hard to beat! We designed a die cut letterpress save the date for Patty and Drew in royal blue. The menus and table numbers repeated the same shape and pattern from the save the date, but in gold foil. We also created die cut royal blue stickers for her welcome bags along with her welcome packet. One of our favorite projects for Patty was her petite ceremony program with a custom drawing of Lowndes Grove on the cover. Oh…and can we talk about the die cut passed hors d’oeuvres signs? Beautiful detail!

Great ways to keep a stationery suite consistent without being boring: think of your favorite shapes, color, and pattern, we will take it from there!

Loren and Chad were married this past June on a lovely summer night at Lowndes Grove Plantation here in Charleston. We loved working with Loren and the ladies at A Charleston Bride on her stationery suite all the way from save the date to cocktail napkins. Loren adopted a low country, natural motif for her wedding stationery—navy, papaya, and kraft paper, a dock scene, and a woodgrain pattern. We had fun with “Do Not Disturb” signs for her welcome packet and a two-sided program with a note to family and friends in fun and interesting type. The occasion was spectacular, and we were privileged to contribute!

We are so excited to be included in Style Me Pretty’s Fashion and Beauty Magazine 2013! We adored all the different stationery we created for Nicole and Jason’s Charleston, South Carolina wedding this past May. We were able to incorporate so many creative formats, delicate color, and hand drawn motifs from her wedding invitation all the way to her dinner menu. The gorgeous wedding, designed by Melissa Barton at A Charleston Bride, uniquely reflected Nicole’s elegant style—pillows on ceremony chairs and antique china place settings—love. How lucky we are to see our work photographed by KT Merry, who captured sweet moments so delicately!

Check out the complete magazine here. (Nicole’s wedding begins on page 150)

See the full gallery of the wedding (it’s wonderful) here

Prepare to be inspired!

This past June, we had the pleasure of working with lovely bride, Laura, and her planner,  Ashley Wenz at WED, to create wedding stationery from start to finish. Laura’s style was simple but elegant, and her wedding day exhibited that so well. Her paper goods incorporated Elizabeth Porcher Jones calligraphy, antique gold ink, and a pop of apple green. We loved working with such a sweet client, making her wedding day details come to life!   Photos by: Gene Ho Photography

Recently, we had the privilege of working with Melissa Barton of A Charleston Bride as she created a neutral, but very elegant cake table setting for the recent Fall/Winter issue of Charleston Weddings Magazine. We created signage to sit beside the champagne flutes, encouraging guests to take a glass and “toast the two-some”. Per Melissa’s creativity, we also designed cake tags to be tied on each champagne flute. These encourage guests to eat cake as they sip their drink. To read more, you can find the article here or the magazine on newsstands now!

This week we’ve had the opportunity to design menus and signage for two foodie events incorporating Salthouse Catering. Tanya, a good friend of ours recenlty launched Salthouse, and we couldn’t be happier for her. We must say, the food is AMAZING and would raise the bar of any event, big or small. We’ve had great fun pairing new designs with all the chef’s innovative creations! 

Happy weekend!
