Real Weddings: Lisa and Scott

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 ?!?

This and That

As our tagline “Distinctly You” indicates, we at Studio R are all about making your vision come to life. Here is an example of a a wedding invitation for our bride who loved wild asymmetrical florals. We took multiple of her inspiration photos like the one above and hand drew a colorful mix of natural florals that hung around the type in her invitation. It was a great project and we look forward to more like it!

In the Studio: Watercolor

Mercedes and Austin get married this weekend, and we are so happy to share their invitation. Mercedes’s suite was custom to the very last piece. We hand painted florals and perfected the oranges, reds, and yellows of her set. This was a great opportunity to practice our painting skills, and we loved the turn out!

In the Studio: Hand Drawn

This save the date was inspired by a series of after-hours floral doodles that soon became a pattern for the back of the save the date card. We love the simple front juxtaposed with the intricate hand drawn back. Patterns like these  can easily be made into envelope liners or  thank you cards!

Stationery Trends: Chalkboard

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!
