Michele & Michael's Valentine's Inspired Wedding Stationery

Michele and Michael got married over this past Valentine's Day weekend 2014. When Michele asked her fabulous wedding planner at Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants for something unique to set the tone for her wedding stationery, planner Rebecca Richman sent this awesome bride our way! (Special thanks to Krista Patton Photography for sending us the beautiful photos of our work featured in this blog!)

Having seen Principal Designer Francesca Staffieri's custom illustrated save the dates, Michele asked us to create one for her and Michael but with a different twist: a three-paneled, perforated save the date in the style of the Valentines we used to send to each other in grade school. Francesca got to work on illustrating Michele and Michael's likenesses based upon photographs our beautiful bride sent.

With her save the dates out in the mail getting her guests excited for her big day, Francesca began working on the design system for Michele and Michael's wedding invitation suite and day-of stationery. Michele had requested an elegant, vintage look for her wedding invitation suite carrying the Valentine's theme throughout.

Francesca combined hearts with a gorgeous pattern to create a design that would set the tone for Michele & Michael's big day at The Curtis Center. Everything was beautifully digitally printed on metallic cardstock and mounted on a red backing. The envelopes were lined with the pattern used on the invitation suite.

For her day-of stationery, Francesca carried the design elements from their invitation suite throughout the ceremony program, seating cards, thank you cards, and the footers that printed for her guests' photobooth strips.

The seating cards were tied to small bottles of hot sauce...

We had a blast working with Michele & Michael this past year, and wish them all the best in their new life together! What better way to end this blog than a look at the Photobooth strip (also by Krista Patton Photography) featuring a special guest who dropped by to see the lucky couple: The Philly Phanatic!

Celebrating the Holiday in Your Wedding Stationery

For most couples, selecting the date of their wedding day is done around the season, the weather, what colors make sense, etc. And while the time of year will certainly influence the overall look of your wedding, what if your wedding day falls on a holiday or holiday weekend. How would you incorporate elements of the holiday into your wedding stationery? Would you even bother to do so?

We had two couples in 2013 who were getting married in the fall near Halloween. Both couples had decided to use design elements from Halloween in different ways. Gina & Sam had set the stage with a photographic save the date featuring them holding pumpkins. One of their parents had actually taken the photograph with a smartphone. They sent it over to Francesca who created this fun Save the Date which featured a likeness of each of them as Frankenstein's Monster and the Bride of Frankenstein.

For their wedding invitation suite, they asked Francesca to recreate Frankenstein's Monster and The Bride for their main invitation.

Meanwhile, Abby and William wanted to incorporate Halloween imagery as well in their stationery for their Merion Tribute House wedding. Abby wanted something fun and traditionally Halloween-y for their rehearsal dinner invitation. We enlisted our Designer, Teddy Nguyen, to create a rehearsal dinner invitation that would evoke the feel of their rehearsal dinner venue — Bistro La Minette — while also featuring a custom illustrated black cat. For her wedding invitation suite, Francesca designed a foil-stamp printed invitation that popped with metallic orange pumpkins. 


The foil-stamp printed invitation was then mounted in a pocket fold. We enlisted Paravano Company to print this metallic invitation. 

Halloween isn't the only holiday we've had the pleasure of designing for! Coming soon on The Little Woman's Blog is a unique set that Francesca designed to help the couple infuse Valentine's Day design elements in their stationery.
