I did (or vintage brides)

I just got my vacation cleared so that I can attend two weddings in August. Yay. It’s so exciting! Aside from getting to go to Seattle for the first time and see my long-lost west coast friends I get to see some amazing people get married! (Huge shout out to Gavin & Elizabeth, and Todd … Continue reading

more wedding nonsense

It’s been awhile since I showed a wedding. And this isn’t so much a wedding as wedding themed. I saw these garter’s on a once wed piece about Lo Boheme and realised I’d forgotten all abut garters. I’m not sure they’re that big at weddings anymore, most likely because according to wikipedia “The symbolism to … Continue reading

POSTER FRIDAY// rifle paper co.

So… maybe not a poster, but a paper product all the same. Anna of Rifle Paper Co. design created these wedding invites for a Brooklyn couple last September. And I adore them. She decided to play up the couples love for the handmade by hand sewing their invitations… Well, one of them. She describes the … Continue reading

Danceoff!

Dirty Dancing vs. Dirty Dancing Remember awhile back when I said “I’d like a dirty dancing themed wedding” well these people HAD one! Yes, the weddings look nothing alike, but this wedding took place at the Mohonk Mountain House, the inspiration for Dirty Dancing. Doesn’t it look absolutely beautiful? How could it not inspire a … Continue reading

I feel like I’m somehow constantly putting my foot in my mouth. Not per say now, but I do live in fear that someday I’ll become a bride and find out I want everything I usually say I wouldn’t—like princess dresses. A certain friend, let’s call her Angela, wink wink, recently went wedding dress shopping … Continue reading

in the grove

I was pretty excited to receive my Save the Date for one of my all time favorite couples farm wedding yesterday. Not sure how this relates, being it’s in an orange grove, but it seemed oddly appropriate. Or at least it seems the same kind of tone that I am imagining. Well… perhaps not? Let’s … Continue reading

nobody puts baby in the corner…

Is it just me or does this wedding remind you of dirty dancing? I never thought I’d be like “I’d like a dirty dancing themed wedding” but, I guess on some level I do?… After all, it was my grandmother’s favorite movie. (family joke alert) Is it the land? the “dance hall”? the fading-country-club-esque feelings? … Continue reading

Summer lovin’

It’s been awhile since I posted wedding stuff. But I’ve had 5 friends get engaged since Xmas. (Crazy!) One gal in particular, the lovely miss Angela, told me to post anything wedding-y I’ve been liking. So here it is. I mean they had me at bocce, but there are some other details I love too—namely … Continue reading

this plus that.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’ve started thinking about the print aspect of my sister’s wedding. In order to keep costs down it’s best to print everything at once. Meaning within the next month or so we should try to have most of the printed pieces ready to go… My sister’s tastes are … Continue reading

Salud!

These bilingual wedding invites were designed and letterpressed with a geometric border and hand lettering for the couples names. Overprinting (which you may recall from my last post) creates additional dimension and color in the flower and vine motif. The invites colors were mixed to match existing envelopes: French Paper’s Poptone in orange fizz and … Continue reading
