I love it when a couple has a vision and enough lead time for me to create something custom.   Julia and Richard are getting married at the gorgeous Driehaus Museum in Chicago.  They wanted to incorporate a tree on their invitations and an overall Art Deco feel.  The first place I look for inspiration is the wedding venue itself.  Wedding invitations are the first impression your guests get of your Big Day, so if you can tie in the venue / setting in the little details, it makes for a nice added touch.  The Driehaus has an incredible domed stained glass window with trees on it.

From there I created some abstracted versions…one a little “leafier” than the other…

Julia & Richard really wanted a folded invitation, which allowed for the tree to be center stage!

LOVE their wedding colors and how they add to the overall stained glass feel of the tree.

Here’s a look at the full suite….

I offer these in theinklab fully assembled or DIY (I design, print and supply you with the handles and ribbon, you assemble)

 

Foil printing is making a HUGE come back.  I mean, who doesn’t love a little flash of fancy when they open a wedding invitation?  Foil printing also adds a lovely touch to menus (ahhh imagine that little glimmer in low lighting!) and as this bride requested, custom Thank You notes for her guests.

Please disregard my lack of photography skills…I’m no Diana Daley.

I currently don’t have these listed for sale in The Ink Lab…but I’m happy to provide you with a custom quote!  Just plan in advance, since I don’t print them in-house.

Not only are my new Welcome Bags more budget friendly than the hand-stamped bags, they are also customizable!…..Even better, you can now buy the labels by the sheet, so if you want to put them on favor boxes, smaller or larger bags, etc. you can!  The possibilities are endless.  I offer a choice of two designs:  the Forsyth Park Fountain, perfect for your Savannah Destination Wedding and The Candler Oak, a great choice for a tree themed event.

We are so excited to finally debut these labels!  Perfect for your rustic wedding or shower favors, these custom monogrammed stickers  add a touch of personalization to your mason jars,  candy bar bags or wedding welcome bags, and can even be used as envelope seals….so many possibilities!

Nick gets the credit for these gems.  It was one of those ideas I had floating around, but never had the time to execute.  He did a great job coming up with a variety of designs for you to choose from…some art deco, some modern, some traditional.  (Don’t worry, we still offer the Candler Oak Labels too)

Just before the start of the New Year, I was approached by Ash and Laurel of Ashley Hilton Jewellery to use one of my Oak Tree Drawings on a sample wedding band.  I’m always thrilled to work with other Etsy sellers, and I promptly agreed.  I could not have been happier with their translation of my drawing, except to find out that others wanted their very own Spanish Moss draped rings AND to hear that it was featured on Huff Post Weddings, May 1st!  What a way to start the month!

Their jewelry can be customized with your favorite tree, landscape, etc.  Pieces can be designed with  gem stones and a variety of metals, to suit any budget or style.  Here’s a link to the Savannah Live Oak band, if you’d like one for yourself!
