Sutherlin save the dates + foil stamped wedding invitations inspired by The Baby Doll House

Magan and Keith celebrated their November wedding at the iconic Baby Doll House in Benoit, Mississippi. Their save the dates and invitations provided a glimpse of the venue for guests through a gorgeous watercolor depiction of the Greek Revival style mansion. We combined letterpress and digital printing for the save the dates, pairing them with metallic camel envelope liners. For their Sutherlin wedding invitations, the watercolor artwork was featured again, but this time on the digitally printed inner envelope liners. Tawny matte foil stamping was used on their classic invitations, direction cards, and reception cards, which also included our Sutherlin pattern.

Greely wedding featured on Style Me Pretty

Rocki and Doug personalized our Greely suite with copper shine foil for their November wedding in Texas Hill Country. We worked with our friends at Events to create their wedding invitation suite (complete with reply cards and website cards) along with #10 sized wedding programs, menus, and a cute folded itinerary that we assembled with neutral colored ribbons. They were after a rustic, shabby chic look, and chose a venue with both a whimsical and romantic feel for their big day. The couple chose to highlight the natural rustic beauty of the property by using a neutral color palette and infusing pops of burgundy and rust to tie into the fall season. These are just a few of our favorite photos from their big day, but head over to Style Me Pretty for even more inspiration!

Custom Smock invitations featured in Martha Stewart Weddings!

Remember these gorgeous chinoiserie inspired invitations that we featured last year? They were featured in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings! This job was a team effort by our in-house designers Brenda Fox, who created all of the custom illustrations for the invitation suite, and Mariel Mirra, who did the layout and design work. The suite was inspired by a blue-and-white chinoiserie fruit bowl that sat on the bride’s family kitchen counter while she was growing up. Honor and Jay worked with Phyllis at By Invitation Only to create their custom invitations, which were featured alongside photos from their wedding day in an 8-page spread in the latest issue. Visit Martha Stewart Weddings to see even more photos from their celebration!

Aquarium Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library. Their custom invitations paired our pewter and ocean inks together on white bamboo paper, with our coral motif and Harrison calligraphy font adding special touches. The other cards in the suite included our sea turtle, fish, and penguin motifs, which gave subtle nods to the venue.

Lavender Ingalls suite featured on Martha Stewart Weddings + Elizabeth Anne Designs

Last summer we collaborated with California based wedding planner Amy Nichols to create a gorgeous lavender inspiration shoot that’s been featured on both Martha Stewart Weddings and Elizabeth Anne Designs! Our Ingalls suite helped set the tone for the shoot, which took place at Amy’s parents’ avocado and lemon ranch in Santa Paula. Inspired Southern California’s lavender fields, the shoot featured a wide range of purple shades — from the candles to the flowers and even the napkins! Many thanks to Amy for including us in this beautiful shoot!

Custom hazel wedding invitations

We worked with Kara at Nest Paper Studio to create these custom wedding invitations for a November celebration at the Annesdale Mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. In order to create a thick, 2-ply piece, we digitally printed both pieces of the invitation in a flood of hazel ink, then duplexed the two pieces together. The invitations feature our popular tawny matte foil stamping for both the text and the edge treatment, adding a sophisticated metallic touch. A hazel watercolor envelope liner tied the entire set together, which set the tone for this elegant fall affair.

Cozy autumn wedding in Germantown, New York

Jessica and Adam chose our Ashbourne design to set the tone for their cozy autumn wedding, and created a full custom invitation suite and programs in a soft color palette of pewter and sand inks. Guests cozied up with white blankets on the grounds of A Private Estate for the couple’s riverfront ceremony, then made their way to the barn for the cocktail hour with warm mulled sangria in hand. Inspired by their love of local food and wine, the elegant farm to table reception featured a unique trios of salads and desserts, which were artfully served up on striking wooden plates by Michael Scott Catering. We can’t get enough of all the beautiful details that went into this wedding — especially the amazing florals by Saipua!  Be sure to visit the Cappy Hotchkiss blog to see even more images from this celebration!

Shimmering pearl foil stamped wedding invitations

Jade and Matthew combined two of our designs to create their elegant wedding invitations. Their invitations and combination reply + reception cards feature our Galena design, with design accents highlighted in subtle pearl shine foil. We created a Gosford stlye invitation sleeve featuring the names of the bride and groom inside of a simple cartouche and surrounded  by the pattern from our Avella design. Metallic glass envelope liners added a final hint of shimmer to this timeless set.
