Celebration on Nantucket

Erin fell in love with the idea of a hand-drawn map of the island where she and Jon had planned their wedding weekend.  For her save-the-date, we chose a tri-folded ecru card to accommodate detailed text and custom motifs.  Next, Erin explained what aspects of the weekend were most important for her to communicate to her guests: transportation and lodging details, local points of interest, and of course, the date of the wedding.  Drawings of the couple’s favorite ferry, specific lighthouses, an old-fashioned suitcase, and even their two golden retrievers provided information with a creative and personal touch.  Erin liked the final product so much she had the Nantucket drawing embroidered on totebags as gifts for her bridal party.

Festivities at Fenway Park 

HPIM0899

Lauren and Steven knew they couldn’t settle for anything less than an invitation that was the equivalent of an outside-the-park home run, especially since their ceremony was being held on the roof-deck at Fenway Park in Boston, and the reception at the famous .406 Club.  A drawing of baseball’s greatest ballpark topped a red card stock-backed invitation,  letterpress-printed in matching red ink on textured white paper to echo the red stitching on a major-league baseball.  A navy blue envelope lining and printed reply envelope tied the invitation pieces together, and the drawing was such a hit with the couple that they used it on their informal notes as well.
