I love love love when couples give me enough time play around with their invites.  Thank you Mara & Brett!  We added a deep purple backing board to the invite and coordinating envelopes.  They have just the right amount of shimmer to give their guests an idea of what’s ahead.  I can’t wait to see how the rest of this event comes together!

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.

 

Couples getting hitched at Whitefield Chapel take note!  Your invitation is the first impression your guests will get of your wedding day, why not give them a sneak peek of the beautiful gate and oak tree lined drive at Bethesda?

I still can’t believe my baby brother is married!  AND Nick and I finally get a sister!  Here’s a peek at some of the Rustic DIY Wedding goodness I helped them whip up.

Lofton Creek Outpost at North Hampton Fernandina Beach Florida Gate

The ceremony and reception took place at the Lofton Creek Outpost at North Hampton, Amelia Island.  I couldn’t resist the urge to use the gates to the venue on their wedding invitations…

Liz bundled them up pretty with a piece of raffia and had a close friend add the calligraphy on the tags.  Kraft paper envelopes add to that rustic feel and I’m happy to say, I’m now keeping them in stock for all of my rustic brides!

Here’s a photo of the bride and groom at their rehearsal.

So perfect for each other these two!

With everything outdoors, they played up the rustic feel with mason jar lights, canvas drop cloths for tablecloths, and lots of burlap accents.  Here’s a detail of the burlap pennant banner I made for them “Alan ♥ Liz”

Florida can get mighty hot in May, so program fans were a must!

All of their paper goods were printed with chocolate brown and tan archival quality inks, so those mementos won’t fade as the years go by.  Of course they also had a Thumbprint Tree Guestbook, but I had a little too much Sangria to photograph it at the end of the night.

Heather and Big Al too much Sangria

I think Big Al had a little too much Sangria too…lol

All in all it was a spectacular night.  Alan & Liz have a wonderful group of friends that helped them pull together their day…so much love and so many details I wished I had captured!  More to come, I’m sure!

Thanks so much for the blog love!  If you’re planning a DIY wedding, you will ADORE Emmaline Bride, so happy to be a part of the site!

Some of you may know this as the place where she got married.  From what I hear, the popularity of this locale since, has soared…(rumor has it, only 2 weekends left in 2010 for a wedding)  Is it any surprise that this sketch is the foundation for some custom wedding invitations?

In just about a month, we will be attending the wedding of an old childhood friend…(seems as though this is the year they are all getting hitched)….She is a true gem, and in lieu of gifts, has asked that donations be made to the Huntington’s Disease foundation in honor of my step-mother, Lee Anne.  (If you are unfamiliar with this terrible disease, I hope you will take a minute to view the site above, and maybe you too can make a difference in finding a cure)  I, in turn,  had the honor of designing her invitations…see below…
