It’s always fun to see the finishing touches that our clients make when it comes to their wedding invitations and save the dates. For Chelsea and JohnMichael’s May wedding at The Hempstead House, we worked with Jill from Jilly P Invitations & Gifts to create a set of custom, venue-inspired wedding invitations and save the dates. Jill shared some background with us on the inspiration for this suite – we’ll let her take it from here!
Whenever I work with a customer, my goal is to always make their dreams become a reality. For this invitation, the bride wanted a drawing of the castle where the event was being held. So as to hint at the incredible night ahead, we first used a hand drawn image of the castle on the save the date. As we continued the process, we then included the castle design on the direction card in the pocketfold invitation, and to tie it all together, we designed a beautiful stamp incorporating the castle. In finalizing the entire package, we added a wax seal on the back of the envelope with the bride and groom’s initials as a perfect finishing touch for what will be the most magical night of their lives.

We always love seeing real weddings from our customers! Alice and Dan worked with The Dandelion Patch to create their custom Haddington wedding invitations, which we printed in black ink on our white bamboo paper and paired with our popular pink vintage rose patterned envelope liners. They even ordered custom pink rose stamps to match! Their beautiful wedding took place at the Inn at Perry Cabin, a beautiful venue along the banks of the Chesapeake. Here are a few of our favorite photos, but be sure to check out Southern Weddings to see the rest of the images from their big day!
