wedding

Brittany + Josh

Brittany + Josh

This destination wedding was meant to be bright and fun, so we used splashy coral graphics and a tropic blue to set it apart.

Palm Beach Save the Date

Palm Beach Save the Date

This save the date had a cool retro feel, incorporating vibrant Palm Beach artwork on one side and wedding weekend details on the other.

Chalkboard Save the Date

Chalkboard Save the Date

A cool way to tell friends and family to “save the weekend”, this chalkboard style save the date lists on a timeline three key events for the weekend: a birthday party, an engagement party, and a bridal shower. Let the fun begin!

Laura + Jessica

Laura + Jessica

Everything about this invitation suite was gorgeous. The paper we chose was lightly textured and felt like a letterpress stock (even though we printed these digitally). The graphics were pale green and coral succulents, and the text was all soft shades of grey. These romantic, […]

Kaitlin + Jonathan

Kaitlin + Jonathan

I love this invitation. It’s one of the only single layer custom invitations we have ever done that I actually loved every part of. The card stock they chose was a duplex with a dark grey damask pattern on the back, and a lighter grey […]

Laura + Edward

Laura + Edward

This simple, elegant program was perfect for Laura and Edward’s wedding. The gold paper with dark ink were a rich but understated combination, and full of class.

Sporting Event Wedding

Sporting Event Wedding

This couple came to me with the vision of having a sports-themed wedding. They wanted us to create an invitation that felt like a ticket to an event, so we developed an invitation, reply card and program to fit the bill.

Modern Script Menu

Modern Script Menu

What makes this menu stand out is the large script that bleeds almost all the way to both edges. It was a cool way to let guests know what they were being served, and matched the colors of the wedding as well, serving up a […]

Bridal Party Silhouette Programs

Bridal Party Silhouette Programs

This was one of our more popular designs for wedding programs during Summer and early Fall, and involved the use of bridal party graphics to provide a fun visual break in the text. Of course, we customize the colors of the paper and ink with […]

Laurie + Keith

Laurie + Keith

This one should look familiar… despite it being one of the year’s most sought after designs, this invitation never gets old. This image really shows the depth of the letterpress, and paired with the gold printed patterned envelope liners, this invitation was simply bellissimo.

Rustic Montana Wedding

Rustic Montana Wedding

Ok, so this was pure awesomeness. This was a collaborative effort between myself and Sam, the groom. He found someone to die cut wooden invitations into the shape of Montana, and burn the text into the material. We stepped in to find a pocket that […]

Jenna + Michael

Jenna + Michael

Jenna had an apple-themed wedding, so we created an original apple illustration to use on everything from the invitations to the place cards and thank you notes.

Katie + Joe

Katie + Joe

Still haven’t quite had enough of the chalkboard look…Especially when it involves really fun fonts, like this rehearsal dinner invitation does.

Kelley’s Wedding Program

Kelley’s Wedding Program

We keep getting requests for bridal party silhouettes on wedding programs, which is fun because we are able to change up the colors involved, as well as the style of the program. This was a trifold square program on a raw silk ecru card stock, […]

Carrie’s Scrabble Shower

Carrie’s Scrabble Shower

This was one of the more fun bridal shower themes I’ve heard of to date. Carrie grew up playing Scrabble, so the ladies who threw her shower thought it only appropriate to go along with her idea for a theme. They were even able to procure […]

Katie + Tal

Katie + Tal

A great change of pace from most traditional programs, this single card two-sided wedding program explained Jewish wedding traditions in lieu of simply listing the order of ceremony events. I really loved putting this program together to match the invitation Katie and Tal chose, as well […]

Caitlin + Craig

Caitlin + Craig

We saw a lot of coral and persimmon in 2014… Shades of orange, grapefruit, and dahlia were extremely hot, and look good with nearly any color you pair them with. The tailored stripes and traditional font were a crisp combination for this July wedding.

Kelsey + Dan

Kelsey + Dan

Kelsey chose one of the contemporary designs from Designer’s Fine Press for her wedding invitation ensemble and we ran with it for some in-house accessories, including her programs, menus, and “newlywed advice cards”.

Lauren + Brad

Emily + Rob

Emily + Rob

This Charleston, South Carolina wedding was full of southern charm and hospitality. The welcome dinner invitations included the iconic pineapple as a watermark, and a tree dripping with Spanish moss.

Samantha + Bradley

Samantha + Bradley

Watercolor effects made a BIG comeback in 2014, and this invitation shows off exactly why. The vibrant, hand-painted look of this card immediately makes a statement.

Meghan + Mark

Meghan + Mark

This pink floral pocket invitation was a nice remake on the classic ivory and gold version we have done several times. Meghan still wanted to bring ivory and gold into it, but couldn’t pass up the lovely pink textured pocket.

Carolyn + Adam

Carolyn + Adam

City skylines made quite a splash in this year’s printed world… Tag and Co. offers some really cool skyline ideas- everything from abstract outlines to more detailed pencil sketches. With the popularity of “going local”, people are developing a healthy sense of pride in their […]

Aloha, Heather

Aloha, Heather

Heather found us online, all the way from Hawaii! She knew she wanted to use green and yellow in her invitations, so we went back and forth via email with color swatch ideas for the card stock and the ribbon. She settled on a tall, […]

Aviva + Michael

Aviva + Michael

The credit for this grey on grey, half-tone monogram belongs to Eric, our intern who transplanted to Washington to work with reclaimed wood in early 2014. This was one of his projects while he was with us, and the monogram (which the bride absolutely loved) […]

Amanda + Navraj

Amanda + Navraj

This was another of my favorites this year. The invitation was neutral and formal using a palette of black, a tiny bit of ivory, and shades of gold. We used all metallic stocks, which set an extra elegant tone. One thing that was different about this invitation […]

Amanda + Alec

Amanda + Alec

A good use of fonts, frames and minor breaks in the text frames makes this invitation pleasing to the eye, while keeping it simple.

Rebecca + Breck

Rebecca + Breck

One of the textured papers we carry has a tree bark grain to it, which comes in about half a dozen different colors including this dark chocolate, a lighter birch, and a cool white. This square pocket card invitation boasts a tidy pocket on the […]

Jen’s Post Wedding Brunch

Jen’s Post Wedding Brunch

This Palm Beach wedding began with a colorful retro save the date card, and ended with a leafy green and gold twist card as the post-wedding brunch invitation. We printed their names on a small card that we adhered to the twist card. Gently pull […]

Weprin Wedding

Becky planned a gorgeous, black tie optional wedding at the Dayton Art Institute and this traditional letterpress invitation in black and ivory was absolutely perfect for the occasion.

Katie and Tal’s Save the Date

The universe brought them together across the miles…Katie and Tal decided to announce their wedding date with this unique save the date card that pinned their hometowns on the world map.

Matt + Meggie

Matt + Meggie

Three layers of metallic silver, peacock blue, and white, coupled with a playful oversized font give this invitation a contemporary lilt.  

Erica + Josh

Erica + Josh

Natural kraft fiber paper and a deep coral stock make this earthy but formal invitation a stunner.  

Katie + Danny

Katie + Danny

Simple yet elegant, this invitation in pale gold and blush pink uses a prominent script as the only graphic element, which we used throughout the ensemble as a recognizable element. This soft and feminine set includes a rehearsal dinner invitation, wedding suite, and program.

Andrea + Bryan

Andrea + Bryan

Concentric overlapping circles in shades of periwinkle, navy, and grey balance well with the traditional script.  

Michelle + Camdon

Michelle + Camdon

A classic black pocket invitation with a monogram seal in hot pink and silver with black ink.  

Allison + Michael

Allison + Michael

This unique combination incorporated purple and a bright orange pattern, but kept a formal font so as not to downplay the elegance of the occasion.  

Sarah + Luke

Sarah + Luke

I never get tired of fuchsia and black together, and this pocket invitation didn’t disappoint. This sparkly invitation was for a spunky bride with a flair for style who “didn’t know what she wanted” but as soon as we pieced it together with her, she […]

Keren + Jeremy

Keren + Jeremy

This beautiful invitation incorporated cherry blossoms into the couple’s purple palette, as well as their names in Hebrew for their Spring wedding outside Washington, D.C.  

Stephanie + Matthew

Stephanie + Matthew

Another destination wedding, woo hoo!! We love the hot and cool colors of the beach, shown here with a seahorse/starfish motif in Tiffany blue and bright coral.  

Katherine + Jamie

Katherine + Jamie

For this Captiva Island wedding, we chose one of this year’s hottest colors, a deep coral, paired it with a funky chartreuse kaleidoscope pocket, and used a blocky roman font to create balance in the design. The simple monogram kept the look modern and clean, […]

Ashley + Sam

Ashley + Sam

This is one of my 2013 favorites. Burlap makes everything cooler, and we paired it with an oatmeal colored PC 100 recycled stock and a darker charcoal accent layer. The fonts and layout idea were inspired by the work of one of our favorite letterpress […]

Lyndsey + Richard

Lyndsey + Richard

This was the year of the out-of-state wedding, and this fabulous letterpress invitation was the introduction to a Fall wedding in Tennessee for Lyndsey and Richard. They chose a 600 gsm Crane lettra stock, a rich purple ink and a fantastic envelope liner to round […]

Kate + Kyle

Kate + Kyle

The pineapple is a well-recognized symbol of Southern hospitality; I learned once during a visit to an old plantation outside of New Orleans, Louisiana that the tradition of leaving a pineapple in a guest’s room during their stay was a polite way of informing them […]

Floral pocket program

Floral pocket program

This little pink and grey floral pocket program was fitting for the garden wedding it accompanied, and the sleeve ended up protecting the programs when it started to rain. They say rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck…

Lauren + John

Lauren + John

Green ribbon across the top ties the invitation and the program together (not literally), while the black and white and funky script makes these invitations crisp and modern.

Caroline + Matt

Caroline + Matt

Caroline and Matt’s program was a delightful compliment to their layered gold and ivory wedding invitation, from the layers of gold and ivory, right down to the moss satin ribbon.

Adrianna’s Telegram

Adrianna’s Telegram

What goes better with a vintage wedding at the Packard Museum than a telegram invitation? Answer: Nothing. Adrianna’s invitation topped the creativity charts and didn’t miss a single detail, from the full stops after each piece of information to the fun text frames we peppered […]

Jessie and Joe’s Rehearsal Dinner

Jessie and Joe’s Rehearsal Dinner

Jessie and Joe’s wedding had an orange and silver theme, but Joe’s mom decided to lend a totally different feel to their rehearsal dinner invitation. The rehearsal was to be held at the Springfield Country Club, and we created a green and pale gold invitation […]

Kate + Pete

Kate + Pete

Kate had one heck of a wedding planner in her corner for this fabulous October wedding- her wonderful mom, Monica. Together, we planned every printed detail of this wedding from start to finish: the invitations, programs, rehearsal dinner invitations, place cards, menus, thank you notes…the […]

Wedding Guest Libs

Wedding Guest Libs

This was an entertaining way to get Angela’s guests involved in providing a fun keepsake for the couple after their Big Day. Angela came to me with this incredibly fun idea- Wedding Guest Libs- into which we easily incorporated her wedding colors of turquoise and mocha. We used the turquoise as […]

Britt + Kirk

Britt + Kirk

Love, love, love this couple! Britt came in with her mom, looked through some books and just wasn’t sure what direction she wanted to go. A few albums and a little flutter of disappointment later, Britt saw the “Christina” style invitation hanging on the wall […]

Lyndsay’s Vegas Wedding

Lyndsay’s Vegas Wedding

I have never been as excited about an invitation as I was to work on this design for a small Las Vegas wedding. The bride-to-be came in knowing she wanted to send invitations in a box with poker chips and dice, so I knew we […]

A + B Programs

A + B Programs

Angela’s Tiffany blue and mocha wedding needed a simple program to match, and by the time she made it to the program stage of things, Angela was tired of making decisions and asked me to suggest something simple and easy that wouldn’t break the bank. Our […]

Stephanie + Travis

Stephanie + Travis

This was a classic case of a “color matching challenge”- there was a very specific shade of coral that Stephanie was trying to match and we couldn’t seem to find the right color in our custom line so she ended up bringing us 12×12 sheets […]

Dana + Sean

Dana + Sean

Beach weddings are the most popular type of destination wedding; Dana exemplified the destination bride with her laid back attitude…from the first day we met Dana, she put the power of creative control into our hands and told us to “just do it.” She had […]

Mandy’s Good Humor Shower

Mandy’s Good Humor Shower

Mandy, the bride-to-be, was a Good Humor ice cream girl once upon a time, and the ladies throwing her shower thought it would be fun to have an ice cream themed shower. They mentioned that humor was also an important part of Mandy’s relationship with […]

Stephanie + Paul

Stephanie + Paul

Sometimes customers bring us ideas they have seen online and ask if we can create something similar…almost always the answer is, “Yes!” Usually it’s a font or graphic that draws their attention, and there was something about the typography of a certain invitation she saw […]

Something blue

Something blue

As you may have noticed, we do a lot of pocket-style wedding invitations; the two main reasons they are so popular is that they are highly customizable while also being practical. The pocket provides a neat and tidy place to keep the enclosure cards for […]

Christina + Nick

Christina + Nick

This pocket invitation has become known as the “Christina” because it became a hit almost the instant we designed it for Christina and Nick earlier this year, and at least half a dozen brides since then have seen it and said, “That’s the one.” For […]

Chris + Michael

Chris + Michael

There was a short period of time in 2007 when I was really tired of Tiffany blue, however I got over it and I couldn’t be more pleased with how this invitation turned out. I really love printing on vibrant colors rather than neutral hues, […]

Corinne + Pablo

Corinne + Pablo

Corinne and Pablo wanted to incorporate airplanes into their wedding invitations and save the dates, not just because they currently live in city known as the birthplace of aviation, but because they are both involved in the Air Force. They were legally married in a […]

Carrie + Mike

Napa Valley here they come! Carrie and Mike’s invitations were from our custom line, Envelopments, and featured a 7×7 square black linen pocket invitation with a wasabi green accent layer, classic white top layer and enclosure cards, and a green satin ribbon. Since this is […]

Casey + Dustin

This was a last minute wedding we pulled together this week (the wedding is in 10 days!) Since we had a pretty short window to work with, we used yellow topaz metallic card stock off the shelf, a classic white top layer, and then added […]

Jennifer + Jon

Jennifer + Jon

Purple and silver were HOT in 2011- I can’t count how many weddings we did in this color palette! Jennifer and Jon liked the custom line because it allowed them to choose exactly the perfect shade of purple, pair it with a silver and purple […]

Allyson + Ben

Allyson + Ben

This was an extremely meaningful invitation because it was for my very first intern at The Envelope, “Awesome Allyson” from UD. It was only a few months after we opened, and I didn’t even know I needed an intern until Ally convinced me of all […]

Heather + Matt

Heather + Matt

Heather and Matt got married at The Dayton Art Institute in November 2010. Their wedding colors were primarily black and white, with hints of green. To create a Fall Elegance feel, their ceremony featured amazing floral displays lining the aisle that included tall tree branches, […]

Emily + Scott

Lisa + Matt

Lisa + Matt

Lisa’s 5×7 pocket fold invitation is one of the most popular styles we design for brides, due to its versatile size and overall design that allows up to four cards to be tucked into the pocket. Lisa’s invitation was clean and classic with a more […]

Eat, Drink and Be Married

Eat, Drink and Be Married

The rehearsal dinner is an important part of the wedding weekend and as such, should have its own invitation to coordinate with the look and feel of the rehearsal dinner venue. Melisa and Michael’s dinner was to be held at C’est Tout, a French bistro […]

Courtney’s Bridal Shower

Courtney’s Bridal Shower

Oh La La! Before her Chateau Elan wedding in Georgia, Courtney’s friends and family threw her a French-themed bridal shower. We wanted to go ultra feminine with the invitations so we used a vintage damask black and white portable pocket with a brocade pattern, as […]

Stacey + John

Stacey + John

Eggplant and taupe are a warm and inviting combination in this colorful yet classic pocket invitation. Lots of metallic layers, including an understated lavender layer and a gorgeous taupe ribbon complete this pocket package perfectly.

Laurie + David

Laurie and David had fun with the process from the first day… they were planning a Spring wedding in Las Vegas and wanted the invitations to feel formal and elegant, yet still “like Vegas” and not like a traditional wedding invitation because they still wanted […]

Megan + Greg

Emily + Brendan

An oldie but goodie, this purple and black 5×5 z-card from a 2008 wedding still hangs on the wall of fame today because a) it’s purple color continues to draw the eye and b) it’s a great example of a different way to combine many […]

Maureen + Charles

Maureen + Charles

Maureen’s pink and black invitation was a pocket-style with three enclosure cards. We kept the invitation fairly simple, with a modest monogram watermark screened behind the invitation text. She wanted to use primarily black and white with punches of hot pink for style.

Ashley + Bryan

Ashley + Bryan

This was the era of the 5×7 pocket fold, which is why you see several of them in our gallery, such as Stephanie and Kyle, Amanda and Matt or Jessica and John. This type of folding invitation became the go-to style for a while because brides […]

Morgan + Christopher

Morgan + Christopher

Morgan was one of those brides who amazed me because she made planning a destination wedding seem like a breeze, on top of all of the other responsibilities she was tackling in her life (not the least of which were the twins she nannied, who […]

Shannon + Charles

Shannon + Charles

Lynn + Jeremy

Lynn + Jeremy

Mocha-licious is the word to describe this pale lime and chocolate pocket fold invitation. Just a hint of pale green, a beautiful ivory satin ribbon and a cool script make this a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional.  

Christine + Eric

Christine + Eric

Play it safe? Not always. Sometimes with invitations you should take a risk: use a palette of citrus green, crisp tangerine and hot fuchsia; print on a bright color instead of white or ivory, and use a modern floral graphic and a non-traditional font. I […]
