Sarah and Colby worked with our friends at No Regrets to create their gorgeous Barnesly wedding invitations (get all of the details on them here!) complete with monogrammed invitation sleeves and rose gold foil stamped envelope liners. The bride is a talented portrait photographer and worked with Imoni Events to pull together a picture-perfect celebration at the Silverleaf Country Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Romantic floral arrangements and garlands of lush greenery dressed up the beautiful venue, with modern gold accents like geometric vases and candle holders adding a fun touch to the centerpieces and decor. Below you’ll find a few of our favorite images from the big day, but take a look at Rachel Solomon’s blog for even more photos!

Sarah and Colby customized our Barnesly design for their wedding at the Silverleaf Country Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. These romantic watercolor wedding invitations showcase our rose gold foil in a charming way against a blush background. To keep the invitation and various insert cards safe and sound, an eye-catching monogrammed sleeve with foil accents was added to the mix. A rose gold envelope liner in our classic amble pattern tied everything together as the finishing touch to this sweet suite.

Julia and Kevin customized our Prescott invitation for their summer wedding in Vermont.

Melissa and John worked with Colin at Pulp & Ink for their wedding invitations and stationery for their fairytale wedding in the Bahamas. The couple selected our ombre Amira suite and personalized each piece in the same shade of pink that the bride chose for her custom Vera Wang wedding gown. Read on for their beautiful love story!
John Jacobs and Melissa Posh first met on June 9, 1994 at a party at Lake Point Towers. John, having just had shoulder surgery, was on major pain relief medication, causing his sense for adventure to be higher than usual. Melissa walked in, John approached, words were exchanged, and chemistry began to operate. For John it was ignited by Melissa’s spark of contagious energy and for Melissa, it was the aura of excitement and wit that attracted her. In a matter of minutes a romance had begun that culminated 22 years later in a fairy tale wedding for the ages.
John is a conservative wealth manager for the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and Melissa is an entrepreneur in the food, fitness and fashion arenas. Although on paper, they were exact opposites, we all have heard the old saying “Opposites attract”. The twenty-two years seemed to fly by and there was never a day that Melissa did not get excited when John walked through their door at night.
Their high rise home looked over Lake Michigan and it kept them in touch with their mutual love for the water. John had many hobbies: he was a pilot, an artist, a reader and musician with interests in the guitar and the piano. Melissa was a creative type. She loved to exercise, run marathons, practice yoga, bake and cook, shop for fashions and always seemed to find the perfect gift to give to a friend or member of her large family. She was also an event planner, organizing a golf outing in honor of her father, Ed Posh, who was the head golf professional for 37 years. The event has raised over $700,000 for college scholarships for local area youth.
Most of all both Melissa and John were in love with deep-sea fishing and spent myriad hours cruising and fishing in the Caribbean waters. John had bought a large fishing yacht naturally christened “The Melissa”. One of their first marine adventures was a trip to Harbour Island in the Bahamas. It was “Love at first Docking”. The island offered fantastic fishing for John and a three mile long pink sand beach for Melissa. You could even ride horses on the sand. The island was a match made in island heaven. It offered first class gourmet restaurants, fabulous libations, a sprinkling of beautiful boutiques, and it was small and intimate to boot. It was enough to keep them and John’s two children, JR and Lindsay, as well as several of their friends, family and clients coming back year after year.
On June 5th, 2015, twenty-one years after their first meeting, John flew Melissa down to the Island. By now he had his own plane. He’d made a reservation at their favorite restaurant, The Rock House, and over the course of the evening actually got down on one knee and proposed. I bet none of you are scratching your heads over her immediate response.
Amanda and Eric chose our Ellory design for their April wedding in Texas, opting for a gold color palette with pastel blue and green watercolor accents. We worked with our friends at Needle in a Haystack to create the set, which included a cute weekend festivities card and a response card in addition to the gold foil stamped invitations. An ocean-inspired watercolor envelope liner introduced a third color and complemented the mint green watercolor accents on each insert card beautifully.

Marni and Ali worked with Desiree at Heirloom Paper to create a cool take on our Flynn design for their letterpress wedding invitations. They personalized the design by adding our quilt pattern in blind deboss to the invitations, creating a textural element that was repeated throughout the suite. Our Clermont calligraphy font was used to highlight key elements on the invitations and insert cards, like the names of the bride and groom, RSVP card details, and events on their “Friday Festivities” card. Our quilt pattern was also used on their envelope liners, infusing a small touch of color to this modern set.

We customized our Fremont design for Ryan and Christopher’s autumn wedding at the Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket Island. Their letterpress suite was printed in olive ink, and we created striped envelope liners in olive and sage inks to complement the stripes used throughout the set. In addition to the invitations, we created folded social notes with a simple monogram, website cards, an events card, and reply postcards. Each piece featured varying stripe designs, and our oak leaf motif added a seasonal touch to these simple yet sophisticated wedding invitations.

Tracey and Nicholas worked with us to create one of the most beautiful invitation suites we’ve ever printed! For their May wedding in St. Barths, we digitally printed their tri-fold, passport style save the dates in pretty blues and pinks, then added gold shine foil stamping. An intricate custom crest complete with palm trees and their monogram was printed on both their save the dates and their gold wedding invitations, which also featured hand calligraphy. Their tropical invitation set included an events card and a reply card, which fit inside of a vibrant invitation sleeve complete with personal motifs – like the wedding chapel, a bottle of champagne, palm trees, and even the couple’s pup! Custom envelope liners for both the save the dates and the invitations were created to match each piece accordingly.

A beautiful array of soft blues and greens were featured together on this sea glass inspired version of our Keira invitation. Sarah and Robert chose letterpress printing in azure ink for the main text on their invitations, which added texture to the colorful, digitally printed piece. We duplexed the invitation and added azure edge paint to make the piece more substantial. Reply cards and event cards were printed to match, and a custom watercolor envelope liner added an extra layer of color to this unique invitation set.

We worked with Debbie at RSVP Today for these custom B’nai Mitzvah invitations for Lindsey and John’s ocean-inspired celebration at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. Our Walsh design worked perfectly for the occasion. Letterpress printed in ocean ink, the invitations featured a simple blind debossed starfish motif that peeked out of the invitation sleeve. The best part? The invitation sleeves were double-sided, with “John & Lindsey” printed on one side and “Lindsey & John” printed on the other.
