Paige and John, September 2013
Paige came to us with a definite idea of what she wanted, and sourced the lovely hand-lettering for her invitation suite online through etsy. We paired the artwork with letterpress, one of the oldest and most traditional methods of printing, for a lovely fresh take on a classic look. Bits of pink scattered throughout gave the entire paper suite a modern, playful feel.

Lindsey and Joe, March 2012
We loved working with Lindsey and Joe on the beautifully elegant paper suite for their March wedding. All of the pieces were styled in an elegant palette of neutrals, and served to showcase the all-white floral palette at the reception. Our favorite detail? A hidden illustration of a tree, seen only after guests removed all of their inserts from the invitation pocket.

Sarah and Brad, June 2010
While I’ve always been more of a “paper person” than a “flower person,” it’s fair to say I fell in love with hydrangeas while working on the beautiful invitation set for Sarah and Brad. Their wedding was rich with navy accenting ivories and a touch of gold, and the letterpressed invitation suite featured a fall of hydrangeas spilling down from the top. These vintage-style florals made their way into several key reception pieces, including a stunning 16-page ceremony program for the couple’s traditional Catholic ceremony.

Hilary and Peter, August 2013
It’s not at all an understatement to say that we loved working with Hilary and her mother, Lisa, on this amazingly elegant wedding last August! They came to us with a few requests: classic wedding invitations; elegant feel; stately and not overdone. Using the couple’s navy and white color palette, we set to work on creating truly lovely and understated engraved invitations.
We do only a few engraved orders each year, and one of the highlights is always when we turn the copper plates over to the client. I recall how Hilary’s mother, Lisa, came in to pick up the invitations and was overcome with emotion as she held the plate, packaged carefully in a black velvet keepsake bag. We hugged a lot (and cried a little) and it was a moment when we truly understood the impact of the invitation.

Jennifer and Richard, June 2009
It’s hard to know where to begin when looking back on Jennifer and Richard’s wedding. Both bride and groom are of Filipino descent, and the colors and traditions of their culture wove beautifully through the details of their day. The couple was married at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Harrisburg, with over 400 guests witnessing their vows and, later that day, joining in some serious celebrating! We loved the opportunity to work not just with the couple, but many of their family members as well, when creating their paper suite.
