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!

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!

Nautical Watercolor Crest Connecticut Wedding

Today I’ve got a very special nautical watercolor crest Connecticut wedding to share! Mallory + Wes were wed at the newly-renovated Tokeneke Club in Darien, CT and had an incredibly fun + personal wedding paper story! Though they had nautical notes throughout, they kept the color palette soft + romantic. So many of my couples hesitate to say “nautical” when describing their vision for their wedding because they don’t want that typical red-and-blue-with-stripes-and-anchors look they’ve seen over + over again. Mallory’s wedding is a great example of how you can embrace beachy vibes without going overboard (pun intended!). Amy Champagne Events deserves much of the credit, since she designed the look of the entire celebration, including amazing florals from Carrie Wilcox Floral Design.

We started with a custom watercolor wedding crest from my girl at Lemontree Calligraphy. (For more of her amazing work, check out Catherine + Michael’s Museum Garden Wedding blog post!) We had it ready for save the dates, so I was able to pull elements from it to create a design that set the nautical + elegant tone for the wedding, while saving the unveiling of their full crest for the invitations. My favorite element has to be the diver!

For their invitations, we kept it classic with the custom crest paired with gold foil. We printed on thick white felt stock, and used pieces from the crest on the suite insert cards.

Mallory + Wes had very specific ideas of what they envisioned for their day-of paper. As die-hard baseball fans, they wanted to incorporate fun details to celebrate this important part of their relationship. This included baseballs to hold the table numbers, escort cards I designed to look like vintage game tickets, and instead of programs, baseball cards for each member of the wedding party (complete with each person’s stats on the back!). Guests were floored by the playfulness + personalization that they put into these.

Maine Rustic Chic Barn Wedding

I am thrilled to share with you Erin + Brian’s rustic chic Maine barn wedding, recently featured on Rustic Wedding Chic! Their first anniversary was just last week (same wedding date as me!), so it seems like the perfect time to feature them on the blog.

Working with them on their rustic barn paper story was such a thrill. Not only was their design one of the most creative of the season, but they were also the sweetest couple! They knew they wanted to highlight the barn motif and use wood details, and they gave me the creative freedom to create something special for them. Basically, they were dream clients and it was a treat reliving all the details when putting together this post.

Their story began with custom save the dates, and we went for that rustic vibe right off the bat with white ink on kraft stock, then paired it with a bold floral liner to add a feminine touch. For the invitations we took that texture to the next level with wood veneer wedding invitations. I chose a light wood to pair with brown ink then created a leaf border design that we carried through into their day-of paper, including programs, signage, and my favorite: the seating chart that lived on the coolest green lounge chair. It was a quintessential rustic wedding, and Jessica Jaccarino captured it all beautifully!

Scroll down for all the details, including a full vendor reel.

Connecticut Pink + Navy Garden Wedding

Kelly + Tim’s Connecticut pink and navy garden wedding is one I’ve been so excited to share! They got married in Elizabeth Park in Hartford then had an elegant reception at The Pond House. Their custom wedding paper story started with The Paris wedding invitation design from The Rosy Collection, but with their own twist! The Paris is usually the invitation suite chosen by my couples with a simpler more traditional style (and is one of my most popular designs!), but by adding some pops of color and more modern fonts, it became this great mix of elegance + fun. (And proving the point I always say to my couples in consultations about the collection: two people can choose the same suite, but the end result can be starkly different. It will still feel like it was custom made just for you!) Their modern Connecticut wedding invitation suite truly reflected the style of their celebration, which is exactly what I strive to do for all my brides!

For the day-of paper, Kelly really wanted to incorporate watercolor details, so we used soft pink watercolors for the signage, including the tented menus that were displayed at each table. This has become one of my new favorite (and cost-saving) day-of paper trends, as you only have to pay for 1 menu per table, and it creates another design element at the table beyond just the florals and linens. We also had watercolor and navy table signs, escort cards, and bar signs.

Ashley Therese Photography was on hand to capture every lovely detail, so be sure to scroll down for lots of gorgeous details! The best part about sharing K + T’s wedding now is that they’ve recently added a baby girl to their family! I love hearing updates about my couples and seeing how their stories continue beyond the wedding day!
