Modern Business Cards & Gift Certificates

Linda is actually the mother in law of one of my former brides. I met her on a consult for the wedding invites! She was in need of some updated and more current business cards. We also created some matching gift certificates.

Black and White Seating Chart

I designed this black and white seating chart to coordinate with the rest of Rebecca and David's wedding stationery. A great way to help guests find their seats!

Detroit Extras

Sarah and Vince's seating chart and program for their wedding day reflected the same detroit theme we used for their invitations. The seating chart was printed oversized (24x36) and then framed and put on an easel at the reception entrance. It's a fun alternative to placecards!

David's Bar Mitzvah

For David's Bar Mitzvah invitations we kept it simple and classy. Red and navy ink on ivory linen paper with a sleek all caps font create a modern and sophisticated look. It is all pulled together with deep navy envelopes and matching labels for the outer envelope as well as the return and thank you envelopes. There are two different response cards for different groups of people, each simply has a blank space to write in your response and well wishes for David.

Joshua's Bar Mitzvah

Joshua's invites are a mix of formal and fun! We kept the main invite pieces pretty traditional but made the "party" card a little more fun since it is a p-jam party! The pieces were printed in dark blue, white and gray on white linen paper and are complimented with silver metallic envelopes and matching wrap labels.

Modern yet elegant.

Kim's direction for me was "simple and classy". We used a simple sans-serif font paired with a modern script to go with their modern yet elegant colors of deep plum, burnt orange and gold. The orange and plum ink on the invitations was complemented with antique gold envelopes and a wrap label. I even talked her into rounded corners for the final touch!

A Touch Vintage

Rebecca had only one requirement, black and white. She let me have total creative freedom to come up with the design, I love that! :) The set ended up being sleek black and white with a touch of vintage. Everything was printed on a bright white linen and complimented by a pale gray envelope.

Hot Air Balloon Save the Dates

Lauren and Josh got engaged on a hot air balloon and wanted to incorporate that into the wedding stationery. I used a small graphic of a balloon in the bright colors Lauren is envisioning for her wedding. Congrats Lauren and Josh!

All about the D!

Sarah and Vince share a love for the "D" and are planning a Detroit themed wedding. I created custom art of the skyline and the Joe Louis fist to use on the invitation pieces and we held everything together with a band that incorporated an old english "D" for Detroit and for their married last name. The color combo of brown, blue and orange is perfect for a September fall wedding!

Oversized Playbill Style!

These were so much fun to work on! Andrea is having an outdoor cottage wedding and wanted a fun colorful invitation. I created this playbill style invitation that was 8.5 x 11! It mailed flat in a brown kraft envelope and the inserts were tied with a cute red and white string.

Her fiance Phil is a map maker and made the map which we used on the directions card. There is also a hotel information card and a postcard RSVP. The RSVP has lots of fun fill in the blanks along with a madlibs section to fill out for accepting or decline.

Bar Mitzvah Extras

A while back I posted Eli's soccer themed invitations. We made the party complete with matching table numbers, place cards and favor tags for each of the kids. Each had a different inspirational quote by an athlete.

Prince and Princess Theme

Christinie came to me and wanted an elegant invitation with a prince and princess theme. I think we captured just that! We printed gray and blue on an ivory linen stock and paired the set with silver metallic envelopes. Wishing Christinie and Victor a wonderful wedding day!

Elegant Damask

I worked with Farrah on her save the dates and we carried the same damask pattern onto her invitations. The deep red and spring green colors are a fresh look for a summer wedding. Everything is printed on an ivory linen with coordinating green linen envelopes. We did custom address printing to complete the suite.

Congratulations to Farrah and Jeffrey!

Kick it with Eli!

These are my first Bar Mitzvah invites ever! Amy wanted something fun, respectful but not too formal for her son Eli's event.

The theme for the party is sports and soccer so we carried that onto the invitations. We added some cute options for the rsvp "so excited to kick it with Eli!" and "sorry, we're going to have to sit this one out." and finished them off with a matching envelope wrap. I also created matching thank you cards for Eli to send to his guests after the big event.

Wedding Photo Thank You

Photo thank you cards are a great way to thank and remind your guests of the day, as well as show off some of those pro pics you spent big money on!

Stephanie chose three of her favorite pictures to display. I used elements similar to those on the rest of her wedding stationery.
