Love Travels...to the Wedding

Jeanne and Marvin started out with boarding passes as their save the dates.  To complete their love travels theme, many other stationery pieces were created.  Invitations included the reception, website, accommodation and registry information.  Table numbers were created using locations around the world that Jeanne and Marvin had traveled.  And luggage tag favors doubled as escort cards.  To top it all off, thank you cards were sent out from their fairy tale trip to Disney.  They were so creative in using this theme to carry out throughout their wedding!  Thank you to the both of you for letting me create your amazing stationery!

Blingin' Chandeliers

 Congratulations to Tiffanie and Khuong!  They were married yesterday and I loved doing their wedding stationery.  Their theme consisted of chandeliers and lots of bling to complement Hotel ZaZa.  Swarovski crystals were added to the invitation to give it a little flair to go along with their black, graphite, fuchsia and blackberry color scheme.  Thanks to Mai Dang for getting us together!

Vintage Thai Boarding Pass

This boarding pass is one of my favorites!  Naomi and Anton contacted me all the way from Australia and told me that they are getting married in Thailand with the colors of clover green and fuchsia with a little touch of plum.  I thought for a looooong time before coming up with this design.  About a month actually.  Once it all came together, they were in LOVE!  Thank you both for letting me design your wedding invites!

Fun with Fans

 After creating custom boarding pass invites for Meyako and De'Mon, they also wanted matching program for their fun beach wedding in Costa Rica.  These programs also double as a fan and favor for each of your guests to keep themselves cool while listening to your vows.  Program fans work great for any spring outdoor wedding to a celebration on the beach!

Beach Boarding Pass

This beach and palm tree boarding pass created for Marissa and Alejandro was the perfect setting for their guests' to get ready for their Florida wedding!  To minimize postage and excess envelopes, they decided to go with RSVP postcards for their guest' to drop in the mailbox.  LOVE this beach background and a simple palm tree to tie the look together.

Hibiscus Passport

I was really excited when Heather and Travis asked to me create a passport wedding invite for their Jamaican wedding.  For their save the dates, they sent out boarding passes.  To add a more tropical feel, different shades of pink hibiscus flowers were incorporated throughout the passport.  Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to create an amazing invite!

Vintage Dinosaur Baby Shower

I met Buddie a little over 2 years ago when I was visiting my awesome friend Angie at her school where she teaches.  Buddie and Chase were planning their destination wedding in Cabo.  Of course I was asked to make her wedding invites and other wedding stationery. Last summer when I was helping Angie decorate her classroom for the upcoming year, I had just found out that I was pregnant and was about 4 weeks along.  Buddie and I were talking about how she too was trying to get pregnant.  Lo and behold, 3 weeks later, she found out that she and Chase were also expecting!  And now here we are with baby shower invites.  Many couples that I meet with are planning their weddings and their big day with an "I do."  Very little do I have the privilege of continuing their journey with these same couples into parenthood.  So, to say the least,  I feel very honored when asked to take the next step and design and create baby shower invitations.  Congratulations to Buddie and Chase on this amazing adventure and  I can't wait to meet little Cole come May.

A Garden Wedding in Miami

Nicole and Brian had a magical destination wedding in Miami at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens this past January.  Coming from the freezing cold in Massachusetts to beautiful Florida was a perfect getaway.  Featured here are wine labels, table numbers and escort cards that were custom designed and printed.  Boarding passes were sent as invitations in a previous blog.  Thank you again for giving me the opportunity for creating stationery for your special day. 

"A HUGE sincere thanks for all of your help - you did such an amazing job : )"

Baby Shower Passport

What a unique and fun way to send out a baby shower invite than a passport!  Christine contacted me a couple of months ago and had this idea because she wanted something different for her friend's baby shower.  We collaborated by phone and email since she was in New York and once the final draft was completed, Christine was very excited!  Needless to say, I loved designing and making this for the mom to be.  Congrats to Cristina and Khalid.

A Touch of Spring

When I met with Kirstin and David last year, they knew exactly what they wanted.  Well, Kirstin knew exactly what she wanted...David agreed.  :-)  With purples and greens and a touch of raffia, a garden themed wedding was exactly what they wanted for a refreshing spring event.  David and Kirstin also incorporated an engagement picture courtesy of my husband, Ben.  Kirstin wanted to use green envelopes, but didn't want any ordinary label.  So wrap around labels were used to complete the clean and classic look.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

A Personal Touch

This wedding is near and dear to my heart because it's my sister that will be getting married come June.  This first piece of wedding stationery that was created for Lan and Avi sets the tone for her bright pinks/fuschia and eggplant color theme with pewter and lots of bling bling crystals.  Sharing in her wedding planning has had it's ups and downs from color changing to day of scheduling also comes with its rewards.  I am proud to call her my sister not only of the person that she has become but because with all of life's challenges, she has always been there for me.

Palms in Cabo

It was so much fun designing this boarding pass with Heather and her mom, Shannon.  Heather and Jaret will be starting their wedding adventure in Cabo and then ending with a reception here in Houston.  They wanted a tropical feel to their save the dates but will be having a formal reception with the same color scheme of corals, greens and teals.  I can't wait to design their invite to match their awesome save the date.

A Whimsical Boarding Pass

This boarding pass had a fun and whimsical design incorporated with fuschia and orange.   Christie and James originally went with a teal and sand palette, but then realized that these colors weren't as vibrant and eye catching as they wanted.  Christie quickly emailed me back and decided bright and bold is the way to go with a destination wedding.  Pre-addressed envelopes to coordinate with font and color were added to complete the look.  A big thanks to Christie and James!

Swirly Boarding Pass

This boarding pass was so much fun to design.  Meyako called me one afternoon while waiting at the airport and surfing the internet for the perfect boarding pass.  After she had emailed a few potential stationery designers, she was in a bind.  A couple didn't answer her emails, a couple didn't return her phone calls and one that did return her phone call sounded frantic and couldn't find the time to give her the info she needed.  Well, needless to say, Meyako did leave me a message and I returned her phone call and after a quick conversation (as she was about to board a plane), I went to work designing some unique.  In her info email, she wrote wanted a little of purple, orange, yellow, green, and turquoise.  Also, she wanted something not too beachy but just a hint.  So I designed boarding pass with whimsical swirls and added a hibiscus flower for just the touch of beach.  I emailed the design over and she couldn't wait to see the actual sample in the mail.  We were a match made in heaven!  Thank you to Meyako and De'Mon for choosing me to design your wedding invites.  The pleasure was all mine!

Humor in Love

I loved designing this boarding pass.  When I met with Sherry and Ron, I instantly fell in love with their humor.  They wanted to put their personality into their boarding pass invitations and what better way to do that than putting a "ball and chain with game over" on the front.  Guests' will open the envelopes and laugh and immediately think, "This is so them!"  Thanks to Mai Dang of Honeydew Events for introducing us.  It was great designing something humorous and fun!

Winter Tulips

When Gigi and Jason met with me a few months ago, they knew for sure they wanted something with yellow and grays.  This color combo is awesome!  Gigi wasn't sure what theme she wanted to go with but after looking at a few samples, tulips was the winner.  Instead of using the custom response card and response envelope, Gigi and Jason decided on saving with postage by using a response postcard.  Also keeping in theme with the color scheme, we also used a dark gray envelope and enhanced with a wrapped address band for sophistication.  I love it!
