The Lighthouse at Pier Sixty Classic Black + White New York City Wedding

It’s been a crazy few weeks getting settled in Los Angeles, but I’m getting my groove back and excited to share this Lighthouse at Pier Sixty classic Black + Gold New York City wedding!

Jeanelle + Marco wanted the quintessential Manhattan wedding feel, and wanted the city itself to be a focal point of their wedding paper story! We began with an elegant black + white save the date featuring the Manhattan skyline, tucked inside a gold envelope. (Is there anything more exciting than getting a shiny gold envelope in the mail?) We carried through the same feel to their wedding invitation, featuring the skyline this time in a custom liner and using gold foil on the invitation + reception cards. We added a modern punch to that black + white palette by printing the reception card with a black background. Though I’m always a die-hard fan of color, this goes to show that even a black + white invitation can be fresh + unexpected.

For their day-of paper, I created custom menu cards, programs, table numbers + signage throughout the reception. It played perfectly into the crisp white florals, candlelight + all-around sophisticated venue. Stacie Shea and her team created the most gorgeous reception space with custom linens + mixed white candleholders.

Willowdate Estate Boston Wedding Photo Shoot

I am so excited to finally share this Willowdale Estate photo shoot that was recently featured in Southern New England Wedding Magazine! Urban Soiree created an etherial yet classic look for this shoot, featuring  a soft blue, grey + cream color palette. The shoot took place at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, Massachusetts, which is a gorgeous New England country manor. Even though it ended up raining that day, the photos from Angelina Rose were incredible (and I always love a shot with a cute umbrella + a gorgeous bride!)

I created an invitation suite (paired with gorgeous calligraphy from Harper Ink, menu, and table numbers, incorporating a custom laurel crest with whimsical monogram. I used the elements throughout the other paper elements, with my favorite being the oversized monogram atop the long menus.

Scroll down to view all the swoon-worthy details, with a full vendor reel at the bottom of the post. And grab your copy of Southern New England Wedding Magazine, now on newstands!

2017 Wrap-up

I’m writing my 2017 wedding season wrap-up post a little early this year, as I’m packing up + preparing for our move to Los Angeles. This year has taken some unexpected turns–most notably the decision to move across the country–but as a creative business owner I’ve learned to embrace the unknown. I remind myself that great things never came from comfort zones, so I’m *trying to* take the leap with arms wide open and figuring out the rest once I get there. It’s gotten me this far with my business (and celebrating 5 years!), so hopefully I’ll find similar success implementing the same attitude + drive with this new family adventure. And I’m really looking forward to continuing to serve my Connecticut + New England brides while building up business in Southern California!

And on the topic of change, my mom was talking about her wedding invitations the other day, saying that adding a lime green border was so out of the norm. It seems unimaginable now that adding such a simple detail to an-already simple invitation would push the envelope, pun intended, and yet it did. It made me reflect on how much change has happened to bring us to the current state of weddings. Couples are taking charge of their wedding and finding value in their wedding style like never before. My couples care about not only creating a thoughtful + beautiful paper story, but infusing their personalities + tastes into all the details of their day. It makes my job exciting, challenging, and rewarding because I get to know my couples on a level I never could if I had an online order site or traditional paper shop.

So here are just a handful of my 2017 brides + their invitations. (I’m still waiting on my fall + winter brides’ photos, so be sure to check back for lots of real wedding posts in the coming months!) I loved setting the photos up for this post side by side, so you can really see how their style +personalities directly influenced the look of their paper stories.

Thank you to all my amazing 2017 couples. You’ve made this season an unforgettable one, and I am so excited for all the weddings I’ve got cooking for 2018.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and a joyous new year!

Washington DC Industrial Chic Wedding

It’s a beautiful day and I’m thrilled to finally share Nancy + Colby’s Washington D.C. industrial chic wedding! Nancy is a childhood friend of mine, so it was such a joy to work on her custom wedding paper story, which included copper, greenery, and a slew of thoughtful details! Sadly I could not attend since I had Baby Layla about a week before their big day, so having my paper designs there in my place made it feel like I was still part of their wedding day.

We began with a simple photo save the date, adding watercolor greenery touches and a kraft envelope. I always tell my couples that the save the date is a great way to give guests “a peak behind the curtain” of your wedding. This way they get a sense of your wedding style, and it builds up excitement for the invitations and the wedding itself!

Their invitations had a copper herringbone envelope liner with a copper foil tag and copper twine. The peach and green tones of the invitation suite were a perfect complement to all the copper touches!

Next it was on to day-of paper, which included fun signage, table cards name after “The West Wing” episodes (man, I miss that show!), and simple 2-sided programs. It was really important to them that they create special details with their own hands, which included homemade eggnog at the reception and the cutest hand-painted duck escort cards. But my favorite detail was their “guest book alternative”; three sets of Q&A cards with specific questions about marriage and them as a couple. Traditional guest books often get missed at the reception, and if they are inscribed usually include a bunch of wedding platitudes. Instead Nancy + Colby included specific questions that made guests take a moment to put down something meaningful. I made sure to include my hand-written cards when I shipped them their order, because I loved the idea so much!

So scroll down for some pretty wedding eye candy courtesy of Michelle Lindsay Photography, and be sure to check out the full vendor reel at the bottom!

The 2018 Rosy Invitation Design Collection Launch

rosy collection 2018 invitation launch

The Rosy Collection 2018 is officially here!

I am so excited to share the new Rosy Collection, which includes 16 fresh + beautifully designed wedding invitation suites. For this year’s launch I wanted to trim down the options and provide a collection that was modern, fresh, and versatile. There are a handful of my best sellers that remain in the collection, but many are brand new designs I’ve been working on over the past several months.

I also wanted to create options so brides can truly understand what they can get out of The Rosy Collection design. I’ve laid out package options that work across the different budgets + needs of the modern bride. This includes The Rosy Plus package. With this, you select a design and I come up with plus-up options to make your suite fit perfectly into the vision for your wedding. Perhaps it’s a custom watercolor envelope liner to add that whimsical touch to a classic invitation, or a wax seal with silk ribbon tying the suite together. Whatever the detail is, this option allows brides to add that personalized touch to their design without starting from scratch on a custom paper story!

But no matter what package you choose, you still get all the “paper planner” benefits of being a Roseville client: timeline management, etiquette advice, and much more!

So go check out the new collection by clicking here, or scrolling down! The updated Rosy Collection Guide is also available with some details on services + packages.

And if you’re ready to talk about your wedding paper needs, shoot me a message here!
