Hailey + Ryan

couple

Hailey and Ryan were married on Hailey’s family ranch in Kerrville, Texas. The ranch holds a special place in her heart with it’s long family history and many childhood memories. While Hailey and Ryan dated, the ranch became a meaningful place in their relationship and many of their favorite memories together were created there. With the sentimental meaning, the beautiful rolling hills and the blooming cactus, the ranch served as the perfect backdrop to their big day! Brooke Schwab did a beautiful job capturing how the beautiful Texas hill country surroundings created the perfect setting for the romantic rustic designs.

We designed the invitations to set the mood for Hailey & Ryan’s guests and to give them a taste of the intimate ranch wedding to come. The invitations were printed on cherry wood and were accompanied by a custom map, reply card and accommodations card printed in chocolate brown on a beautiful ivory cotton paper.  We used the monogram and the wood veneer to play up the Texas theme, while the soft calligraphy and traditional layout gave the suite a romantic and elegant feel. The illustrated map of Kerrville captured the couple’s favorite landmarks in the charming hill country town. To pull everything together, the wedding suite was wrapped in twine and finished off with a coordinating cherry wood tag.

The couple’s illustrated monogram was used throughout their wedding day paper. We branded everything from monogrammed koozies to the custom monogrammed “yay” signs  guests waved in the air after the couple was announced husband and wife. We also reincorporated the cherry wood in the couple’s wedding day menus.

Hillary + Christopher

I had so much fun working with Hillary on her wedding paper. Even the planning leading up to the wedding was full of love and joy. When we first met, her mother, aunt and cousins were all there to be a part of the design process. Everyone was so excited to spread the wonderful news of Hillary and Christopher’s marriage.

For her wedding invitations, we fell in love with an elegant satin pewter ribbon and the rest of the suite’s design fell in to place around it. We wanted to stay with the classic style, but kick it up a notch. We chose a whimsical calligraphy by Natalie of Love Letter Calligraphy and had it letterpressed in pewter on a heavy four-ply card. Here is where our hearts really flutter— we had the outer edge of the invitation beveled and hand painted with a custom metallic pewter. The invitations were each wrapped with the luxe satin ribbon and sealed in silver lined envelopes.

For the programs, we used a luxe card stock paper with the whimsical calligraphy adorning each page. Each booklet was held together with Hillary and Chris’ signature sparkling pewter ribbon.

Libby + Tate

Libby+Tate

Today’s post is an extra special one for me! Libby and her family hold a special spot in my heart and sharing in their special day was such an honor for me.

The bride and her mother (both of whom are brilliant designers) found a beautiful fabric with the perfect pinch of fun and a dash of sweetness to pull inspiration for the wedding design. The fabric was perfectly layered in throughout the wedding from the couples wedding cake table linen to the bridesmaid skirts. We even recreated the fabric to be used as the wedding invitation envelope liners. There is no denying God’s work in bringing Libby and Tate together and we paid tribute to this with a one-of-a-kind cross heading the invitation in raised gold ink.

Wishing you both the very best and thank you for letting me share in such a special day!

Catherine + Kolbe

CATHERINE & COLBY

I’m so excited to share my good friends, Catherine and Kolbe’s wedding invitations! Catherine and Kolbe’s wedding was a romantic dream that took place at her grandfather’s estate. With a surprise down pour of rain, you would never guess anything was awry by the happiness and love filling the air! We did a simple elegant design in raised silver ink cradled in a lush white enclosure and sealed with a beautiful satin ribbon.

Michelle + Drew

MICHELLE & DREW

MICHELLE & DREW

You may remember the fun save the dates we got to do for Michelle and Drew. Well we got to have even more fun with their wedding invitations! I had a blast working with Michelle’s mother, Sharon over late night phone calls and fun afternoon meetings where we would always get off on tangents reminscing over funny stories of Michelle and Drew. The invitations perfectly embrace traditional and classic design yet still encompass the couple’s fun loving personality. The invitations were nestled into a lined double envelope, engraved on beautiful ecru paper with a gorgeous embossed cross and sealed with a custom designed stamp.

I feel so blessed to have gotten to work with the Michelle and her Family and also to have worked alongside such inspiring wedding vendors- Jennifer Lindberg Weddings, Caplan Miller Events, Love Letters Calligraphy and Townsley Designs.

Bundle of Joy

IMG_1981

Five years ago, when the three of us were awkward teenagers in high school together, I would have never guessed I would be working on Allyse and Robert’s Baby Announcement! It was such a treat getting to work with them on this design. Plus, Andrew is so cute, he could make anything look good. From the monogrammed liners to the lush letterpress, this is a bundle of joy anyone would like to find in their mailbox!

Helen + Sam’s Big Day

Helen_Suite

From the tumbleweed chandeliers (not even kidding, so cute and made by helen’s dad!) to the petifores adorned with the bride and grooms faces, this wedding was perfect. I am so honored to have designed the invitations to go along with it. The cards were letter pressed onto heavy gray card stock and pulled together with the wedding’s signature twine.

 

Susan & Tony

Susan and Tony are truly living out a happily ever after. Nothing is more inspiring then getting to be a part of true love coming together, but the delicious Austin Java food we shared over design sessions definitely got the creative juices flowin’!  This invitation is all about celebrating the love these two share with it’s bright colors and fun patterns!

Shannon’s Bachelorette

This invitation was designed with the ingredients of Shannon in mind- a touch of elegance, a dollop of fun and a dash of color! I’m so happy to be a part of the celebration leading up to Shannon’s special day!
