Project of the Day

Today (like everyday this week) was website day! Got some work up to show-off my portfolio.

Some of that work was for my own wedding! I absolutely loved working on my invitations. My husband & I couldn't be happier with the way they came out...he wants to frame them! :) Our palette was navy, with shades of lighter blue & a dark smokey purple with a few complimentary shades, which we only used in the flowers & bridesmaid dresses.

The suite! We had 2 monograms. Our first name initials went on everything occurring before the ceremony. Then afterward, we broke out the B! Calligraphy for the addresses was done by Elizabeth Porcher Jones of Charleston. I highly recommend her! She wrote out the RSVP envelope address & we printed it on the envelopes. She also did our escort cards, table numbers & menus.

The Save the Date...where it all started. Actually, I pretty much designed the look all at once. Sometimes I end up doing that when I want to be sure that the look I'm creating will work as well on the other pieces I'm designing.

I fell in love with the design on the back of our wedding invites. Ooohh...and to feel it letterpressed into this heavy paper. Love it!

One of the details, suggested by our printer, was to letterpress our return address in a shade or two lighter than the envelope. It created a nice debossed look. Love it!

Thank you notes! So many thank you's to write after the wedding. It's a good problem to have :) To cut down on costs, I had these digitally printed at ComZone in Manhattan.

We had a BBQ to kick the weekend off. White Rabbit Catering of Pinehurst made the food. Giff, if you're reading...people are still talking about the pig.

A note about your wedding suite...letterpress is beautiful, but expensive. We used it for somethings & then had other pieces flat printed. Like our menus & table numbers. I betcha no one noticed.
