Diecut maple leaf placecards & Crystal table numbers

To complete Stephanie & Peter's gorgeous November wedding, we created a few more unique pieces. Each place setting at the reception tables had a light gold metallic card printed with their donation favor message. 

Diecut maple leaf shaped placecards were created and cut from copper, light gold, and cappuccino metallic card stocks. Each card was embellished with a Swarovski crystal on each side of the table number.

The table numbers were printed on Cream / Ivory metallic card stock and incorporated the frame design from their invitations. Each number consisted of hand glued Copper swarovski crystals. Each of these cards went into some nice 5x7 frames with a rustic feel to complete the Autumn look.

Acrylic Menus

For Steph and Pete's Wedding, they wanted something unique for their table menus. Steph loved one of my acrylic invitations so we decided to do die cut Acrylic menus!

Each menu is approx. 6" x 8" on clear acrylic with a custom mixed copper ink, and laser cut into this fun shape. We embellished each with 4 orange swarovski crystals around the monogram crest, and they were displayed with these modern clear acrylic holders.

Trifold Programs

For Stephanie and Peter's wedding, we created these beautiful trifold programs with a gold foil printed cover, and satin ribbon closure. We did half with copper covers and brown ribbons, and the other half with bronze / brown metallic covers and gold ribbons.

Trifold programs have 4 panels which can include the Wedding Ceremony, Bridal Party listings, a Memory / Thank you section, and a new request for me -- an Unplugged Wedding message asking guests to refrain from using cell phones and cameras (or iPads) to take photos during the ceremony.

Susan's Reception stationery

Susan and Gary were married in Las Vegas a few weeks before their dinner reception. We used one of their wedding photos on the table numbers so that guests could see them on their special day.

We also made these small signs for the tables, to remind people to get up and enjoy themselves:

Finally, tented donation signs were put on the place card table:

All of their signs featured a gold metallic tented base, a chocolate ribbon accent, and printed matte cream paper.

Letterpress Chocolate Brown and Gold Invitations

Susan loved the look of Letterpress and wanted to use it for her wedding invitations. We used a rich chocolate brown ink on cream letterpress paper and paired it with a gold metallic accent card.

Each invitation featured a large "K" monogram that we carried throughout the stationery suite. A letterpressed bellyband wrapped around each invitation set and held all of the pieces together. The band features a lyric from a Bruce Springsteen song, a favorite of the bride and groom.

The invitation had an RSVP postcard, and a digitally printed directions card.

A close-up of the layers -- don't you just want to touch the paper?

Congratulations to Susan and Gary!

We also created a seating chart that was mounted on Masonite board and ready to display at the reception:

Lisa & John's Purple Boxed Rose Invitations

Lisa wanted something unique and requested a boxed invitation for her wedding. We came up with these gorgeous dark purple boxed mailers with a double-layered metallic invitation embellished with a crystal rose brooch and a plum satin ribbon accent.

The lid held the die cut gold metallic pocket which contained all of the enclosure cards. The pocket was wrapped with the plum satin ribbon and embellished with a monogram crest. Enclosures included a double sided directions card, a reception card, and an RSVP card with response envelope.

RSVP envelopes were the same dark purple paper as the boxes, and we used die cut labels printed with their address on the fronts.

Finally, a wrap around mailing labels  went on each box and sealed them shut for mailing. These were such a big hit with guests and set the tone for their fabulous fall wedding!

These invitations were one of my favorites from last year -- probably because purple is my favorite!
