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!

Danielle & Zach's Aldie Mansion and Library Inspired Invitation

We first met Danielle after she reached out to us at the behest of wedding and event planner, Wendy Hartigan of Wendy's Affairs of Heart. Danielle was in the midst of planning her wedding with fiance Zach at Aldie Mansion in Bucks County, PA. 

She knew that she wanted a letterpress invitation: she loved the texture of the paper and the feel of letterpress. For her invitation design, Danielle asked Francesca to use the facade of Aldie Mansion as her inspiration. Francesca then went to work designing the elegant wedding invitation with the facade of the amazing mansion eventually letterpress printed (by Paravano Printing Company, of course!) across the top.

 The edges were painted using the pink tone that Danielle had selected for the mansion giving an extra pop of color. 

The letterpress printing was ideal for the printing of this facade, as it gave more depth and texture to details as small as the windows and doors on the mansion.

She also had a plan on how her invitation was to be housed. Danielle and Zach would spend the next year buying used books at different stores, each title picked out specifically for one of the 90 individuals or couples they would be inviting. Zach was then tasked with hollowing out a section of the books in which the invitation would rest, while Danielle took to designing and attaching a pocket to hold the reply and insert cards that Francesca would design. This was all finished off with a pink ribbon with a wax seal at the top! 

The day-of stationery carried the Aldie Mansion facade to her ceremony program. But, it was her seating card that would continue the book theme Danielle had requested with a seating card designed using an old-style library card for inspiration.

It was absolutely terrific working with Danielle and Zach this past year, and we wish them the very best on their new life together!
