Real Wedding: Kristiann + Nick

Kristiann and Nick traveled all the way from Florida to New Jersey so that they could have their dream wedding. The Ashford Estate, a beautiful wedding venue with an elegant country feel, was the perfect setting for their vision of rustic sophistication. The big day took place on a gorgeous October Saturday with the couple’s closest family and friends by their side.

Kristiann-Wedding-1Kristiann and Nick’s ceremony took place in the barn wedding chapel located on the estate’s impeccable grounds. From the bold red doors to the white-washed wooden details inside, every aspect of the barn was exactly what the two imagined for the intimate exchange of their vows. To fit their refined, rustic theme, the invitation suite was letterpress printed in a bold navy color scheme with delicate damask accents. A coordinating pocket personalized with a custom monogram wrapped around the invitation and enclosure pieces, while the envelope was lined with a letterpress printed exquisite damask pattern.

Kristiann-Wedding-2Perfecting the suite and creating unity, the damask design flowed throughout the rest of the pieces and set the tone for their special day. And though their wedding was visited by strong gusts of wind, the couple kept a positive attitude and took the opportunity to create beautifully windswept photographs!

Kristiann-Wedding-3All of the memorable moments of the day were caught by Jeff Tisman photography. We loved how every detail was captured from the bridal party to the escort cards and every detail in between. We would like to thank Kristiann and Nick for giving us the opportunity to help make their wedding stationery dreams come true and extend our congratulations to the wonderful couple!

Wizard of Oz Style Shoot

Blog.OZ.Shoot1

We are so excited to share with you this beautiful Wizard of Oz style shoot, photographed by the super-talented Tami Melissa Photography and planned by our friends at Just Be The Bride! The charming and colorful details from the cakes to the table décor really bring the enchantment to life.

We hope that you’ll agree that our custom stationery is a wonderful complement to this Wizard of Oz themed wedding. The lavish invitation is letterpress printed in three colors on duplexed cotton and 24 karat metallic stock with edge painting and accompanied by a 24 karat envelope. To complete the luxurious look, accent pieces such as place cards, bottle labels, menus and programs adorn the wedding of Dorothy and Oscar.

These cakes by “The Sweet Life Bakery” are unbelievably impressive – to say that they are works of art is clearly an understatement! The color schemes and details are certainly something to behold!
