Yarickza & LeRoy ~ Austin, Texas Wedding

When I met with Yarickza and her mom for the initial consult, they knew exactly what they wanted!  LeRoy is part of the armed services so it was natural for Yarickza to go with a navy blue as part of their color scheme.  To offset this dark colored pocket invite, they chose to go with a tangerine and pair it with a detailed damask pattern.  Yarickza and LeRoy finished off their wedding with a double sided program with the ceremony on one side and the other side their wedding party with characters, menus, place cards and table numbers.  It was definitely a pleasure working with you and your sweet mom!

Vanessa & Mario ~ Oahu, Hawaii Wedding

Vanessa called me a few months ago and had a few designs in mind that she wanted to merge all in one invite.  Since it was a destination wedding, Vanessa and Mario wanted to make sure all their guests received all the necessary information to book their travels and accommodations easily.  We put together a boarding pass sleeve that had the info printed on the top flap and then a beach themed boarding pass as their invite.  They also wanted to incorporate a little note to their guests and so a luggage tag was created to keep with the destination theme.  Enjoy!

Alicia & James ~ Montego Bay, Jamaica Wedding

Alicia emailed me about a year ago to start design her wedding invite.  This was one of my favorite invites that I have designed.  She wanted something simple and yet included enough info for their guests since it was a destination wedding.  So I created an invite where the travel accommodations and reception information could be found on the back and the RSVP postcard could be slipped into the band.  Alicia and James fell in love with it and program fans were created to match.

Christie & James ~ Paradise Island, Bahamas Wedding

To give their guests ample time to plan for Christie & James' wedding, save the dates were first sent out.  Then came the passport invitations.  These passports included all the airfare and accommodations info as well as an itinerary.  Passport invites are a great way to provide all the necessary information such as info about the destination, travel info and any to dos the couple may have tips on.  Happy anniversary!

Scarlett & Clayton ~ Playa del Carmen, Mexico Wedding

After designing their boarding pass save the dates, Scarlett and Clayton wanted to keep in theme with the destination wedding in Mexico and send out passport invites.  The teal blue passport cover complemented the coral boarding pass sleeve well.  A palm tree accentuated the front cover and inside was an itinerary for their guests and further information regarding their at home reception.  Happy anniversary!

Candice & Brandon ~ Chappell Hill, Texas Wedding

Candice and Brandon were so amazing to work with and referred to me by Honeydew Events.  I mostly met with Candice's mom, Gerry, to work on all their stationery.  I absolutely LOVED their theme and colors!  They went with dark gray, plum and it was a ranch style themed wedding.  Candice grew up with horses and instead of having table numbers, they went with tables named after all her horses.  What a cute idea!    For the invite, there was a pocket on the back where the RSVP card, accommodations and directions cards were nested.  Candice wanted a little bling, so a rhinestone buckle finished the look.  The colors and theme carried throughout the menu, program, seating chart and thank you cards.  Papered cones holding rice were also created for their wedding exit.  Rice cone and menu picture provided by Scott Kelley Photography.

Lori & Benjamin ~ Oahu, Hawaii Wedding

This wedding suite is one of my favorites!  All tied into Lori and Benjamin's Hawaiian wedding theme was the phalaenopsis orchids.  When I was designing their boarding pass invites, escort cards, table names, menus, programs signature drink sign and thank you signs, little did I know how gorgeous it would all look at their wedding.  Congrats to the both of you.  It was a pleasure playing in a little part of your wedding.

Casey & Paul ~ League City, Texas Wedding

Wow...where to even begin...

First, I apologize for posting this a year after their wedding.  I've been playing catch up with all the weddings from last year and having professional (my husband) pictures taken of my stationery.

Casey was a neighbor of mine back in elementary school and we were great friends!  She moved away and then we moved away and we lost touch.  Fast forward about 25 years and she finds me on My Space.  It became obsolete and we all now have Facebook.  AGAIN, she finds me on there....stalker!  :)   Casey told me later she was determined to find me again so that I could do her wedding stationery.  I was so excited!!!

We meet and start designing her stationery.  She knew she wanted a lock and key vintage theme with pale pinks and dark grays.  On their save the date, we did a tag style to which she used a cricut machine and created a thick vintage key attached with a cord.  Needless to say, she's pretty creative herself!  This theme carried on through to the invite as well.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Casey & Paul for letting me a part of your wedding planning!  And another HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to Casey for supporting me by coming to our open house this past March and bringing new clients to me and my studio mates, Kristina Frank Make Up & Zasey Photography, Amber Strickler.

Happy Belated Anniversary you two!  XOXO!

Courtney & Marcus ~ San Diego, California Wedding

A couple of designs were done for Courtney and Marcus but in the end she wanted something sophisticated and simple for her destination wedding.  Although it wasn't something in the Caribbean, it was still a beach wedding.  The location was kept off of the invite as it was a surprise to the guests once they arrived so they didn't want to give too much away on the invite and choose tulips to keep a sleek design.  This one is quickly becoming a favorite among clients.  :)

Katie & Chase ~ Houston, Texas Wedding

This is one of the sweetest couples I've ever met!  About a year before their summer wedding, I met with Katie and Chase and started to go over their save the dates.  They both agreed that they wanted their engagement pictures on there.  So we did a few proofs before we got the right one nailed down.  They turned out pretty cute!  Then we met again a few months later to start designing their invites.  To tie in the navy blue and tangerine, they chose to go with a sophisticated paisley print and finish off with a ribbon wrapped bow.  And finally to complete the ensemble, Katie and Chase had programs made to match all their stationery.  Wedding photography by Sassani Photography.  Happy anniversary to you both!

Peacock Invite ~ Austin, Texas Baby Shower

My good friend had her third baby this past October but it was her first girl so of course she HAD to have a baby shower!  A peacock feather adorned her shower invite and guests knew that a peacock theme baby shower it was!  Thanks Laylee for letting me create your invites and taking the journey with you through all your babies!  You're are truly an amazing and inspirational person, mother and friend!

Adriana & Kennith ~ Houston, Texas Wedding

After engagement pictures were taken, this couple wanted to use one and send out a mock postcard to let their guests save the date.  A few months later, invites needed to be created and Adriana & Kennith wanted to combine the winter color theme with Kennith's work in commercial airlines.  So a small airplane flying out of an abstract cloud to symbolize that was worked into their invite.  This trifold invitation was perfect way to include all the information necessary.  A separate card included was the response card and it was sent back to the couple.  Guests could easily take this invite with them on the wedding day and not have anything falling out.  Here's their final creation!

Athena & Raphael ~ Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica Wedding

Athena & Raphael wanted a unique invite to tie in their destination wedding.  This boarding pass invite was printed on a creme brûlée colored card stock and accented with grass green and bronze.  Thank you cards were also created to complement their invites.

Lien & Jim ~ Houston, Texas Wedding

When Lien decided it was time to start looking around for her wedding invites, she was stumped.  So she posted on Facebook asking if anyone knew someone who did wedding invites.  Only one person replied to her post and she decided that it was meant to be that I designed something for her.  She knew that her wedding was going to bling bling and it was only natural to start out with something bling bling on her invite.  Lien and Jimmy wanted something simple and sleek to give their guests a glimpse of what was to come for their winter wedding.

April & Daniel ~ Lime Beach Resort, St. Thomas Wedding

This destination wedding was completely unique as the couple was getting married on the beautiful beach of St. Thomas and while on a cruise.  Their cruise would dock on St. Thomas for the day for April and Daniel to have their wedding ceremony.  Now that's the way to do it!  April loves dolphins so it definitely had to be incorporated into the boarding pass invite along with the grass green and pinks.

Kristen & David ~ Canton, Massachusetts Wedding

It was such a pleasure to work with this couple!  Kristen and David were referred to me by her sister, Nicole.  Their wedding color and theme was inspired by the month they were getting married in, October.  It was natural to go with these fall colors of deep plum, pumpkin and sage and apple green.  I LOVED their color scheme.  We started out with invites and finished with place cards, table numbers, thank you and candy bar sign.  Each guest received candied apples as their favors with a personalized note from the bride and groom.  Photography from the wedding courtesy of Chinappi Photography.
