Sweet Spring 2009 Shades!

Here is a sneak preview of what's to come this Spring 2009 in terms of fashion & interior colors - straight from the experts at Pantone.

How about pairing "Rose Dust" with "Slate Gray" for an elegant and soft feel? This combination is just like our "Blush Champagne" design from our Prestige Collection.

Or go with several fabulous shades of "Lavender" with our "Amethyst" design also from the Prestige Collection.

If the pairing of "Dark Citron", "Vibrant Green" and "Rose Dust" are more your style, we've got the perfect invitation design for you - "Forest Hill" from the Prestige Collection.

Keep in mind all of our invitation design colors (ink, paper & ribbons) can be customized to coordinate with your wedding color scheme at no extra charge.

Charu & Bryan

Charu and Bryan wanted a luxurious custom invitation design featuring a Dupioni silk folio in a rich garnet shade and accents in gold and black. In designing a decorative motif for their invitation, we were inspired by traditional Mehndi designs drawn in henna on the brides' hands to celebrate the event. We designed 2 different Ceremony Programs as they had both a Hindu and a Christian ceremony, and a Menu printed in gold raised printing on shimmery ivory cardstock. This elegant couple obviously loves candy because they had an extensive candy bar with cute pink paper bags (to hold all the sweet goodies) with personalized metallic gold stickers which we also designed for them. Their wedding was coordinated by the talented Melissa from One Fine Day Events and their stunning wedding photography was by Click Photo Co.

Destination Celebrations

More and more couples are deciding to get exotic with their weddings and are planning to be destination weddings. While beach weddings are still most popular, as you can see by the first 2 invitations that we designed - some couples prefer European destinations such as Italy or Spain. In the last photo, our couple Elisa and Scott took some gorgeous photos when they went "scouting" for their Sicilian wedding and they wanted to use them in their invitation. We incorporated 3 of their photos into their design and the result is a completely unique and custom look. If you have some special photos that you would like to use in your invitation, feel free to contact us to discuss the possibilities!

Fabulous Fall Invites

We hope everyone had a relaxing Labor Day, now that Fall is approaching we can showcase some of our Fall wedding invitations. Above is one of the recent custom designs that we created for a super sweet bride named Kerry Anne. They are getting married at a church by the beach and then having a huge party under a white tent on the beach and lots of fabulous food! Her colors are ivory and chocolate brown and she still wanted her invite to have a formal and romantic feeling. We designed a custom monogram for her and printed the square invitation in raised brown ink on ivory shimmery cardstock, which is mounted on chocolate brown shimmery cardstock. We look forward to posting some of her wedding photos after her big day!
