Real Wedding: Julie & Nate


Words cannot express how much we loved designing all the stationery  for Julie and Nate’s chic Pittsburgh wedding.  Pulling in bold polka dots and stripes to contrast the soft pink and gold details perfectly expressed their day – seriously sophisticated with a touch of stylish whimsy.   Everything from her lace dress to his custom cuff links created a thoughtful and authentic wedding that we are thrilled to share with you.  The invitation was a mixture of gold and white foil, black letterpress and luxuriously thick papers. A custom wax seal closed a black carrier that packaged all the pieces before going into a lined envelope. Julie and Nate’s custom save the date had a small accordion piece that opened up to tell their love story from when the met to their wedding day.

Real Wedding: Kirsten and Carlos



We are so excited to have had the opportunity to design all the stationery for Kirsten and Carlo’s beautiful Spring wedding at the Carlson Rotunda in Minnetonka.  Everything from the perfect pops of gold, navy and blush pink to a fun Minnesota die-cut save the date set the tone for a sweet, romantic day.     The couple was sure to include Carlo’s Mexican heritage with small details throughout their stationery set.  A custom pattern was designed and printed in gold foil on blush pink paper, then duplexed to the back of the silver foil stamped invitation and details card. The whole set gave their guests a sneak peek of the romantic yet modern feel that would encompass their entire day.  Seeing our work come to life and inspire an entire look beyond paper is one of our favorite parts of the design process.

We wish Kirsten and Carlos all the happiness in the world!
