HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRAYDEN | JUNE 2016

4 May 2017

When your son is into LEGOs®, I mean REALLY into LEGOs, it is kind of a must to have a LEGO themed birthday party. And, when your son is really into Star Wars, it is also a must to have a Star Wars themed party.

But when your son is into both LEGOs and Star Wars, it is definitely a must to combine the two.

Each boy was given a LEGO Star Wars figurine along with the invitation. Naturally the party was held at the local Bricks & Minifigs and was filled with fun building activities and eating. The boys left the party with their own lightsaber and a smile on their face, especially the birthday boy!

Today was only fitting that I put this post up – May the Forth be with you! (ha ha – get it? Today is May 4th. Forth be with you – Force be with you).

Venue: Bricks & Minifigs

JANELLE & RYAN | 07 JANUARY 2017

26 April 2017

In my last post (yes, it seems like eons to me too!), I showcased the first of 3 ADDYs that I received at the 2017 American Advertising Federation show. This post will showcase a second winner.

Janelle & Ryan met on eHarmony, an online dating community. They had dated for 5 years, some of the time not even living in the same city. The long distance didn’t put a damper on their relationship, and in fact, made it stronger.

It was on a trip to Savannah, Georgia that Ryan proposed to Janelle in front of the Forsyth Park Fountain in the historic district. It was a total surprise to Janelle! Luckily, Ryan was sly enough to ask a complete stranger to take a few pictures to capture the moment.

The fountain became our inspiration for the save-the-dates and the rest of their wedding stationery suite. Since family is a big focal point in their relationship, they naturally wished they could share the engagement proposal with them. Queue in the save-the-dates!

Instead of just incorporating the photos in a collage orientation on the save-the-dates, we wanted to heighten the suspense for their guests when opening the save-the-dates. A small 2.75×2.75 inch envelope that held the photos was adhered to the save-the-date. The “Actual Moment” unfolds in a picture-book fashion.

The fountain imagery along with the navy, steel blue, cranberry and rose-gold color palette continued onto their wedding invitations and their day-of elements.

CHANEL & MITCHELL | 19 MARCH 2016

22 March 2017

Happy 1-year anniversary going out to Chanel & Mitchell!

I had met Chanel & Mitchell at a wedding expo. While chatting with them, they mentioned that they had already gone through a traditional Hmong wedding. They were at the wedding expo for the planning process of a more modern westernized celebration. While the Hmong ceremony was meaningful and heartwarming, they wanted to take a step away from this tradition and incorporate their own character into the upcoming celebration.

I’ll never forget the voice message I received from Mitchell the morning that we had our initial consultation scheduled. It went something along the line of “Kathy? Umm, hi, this is Mitchell. Chanel & I have an appointment with you this morning. Unfortunately, we’re not able to make our appointment. Chanel’s water broke and we’re at the hospital. I’m so sorry that we need to reschedule.” It was touching that Mitchell was so apologetic. Seriously! You’re about to have a baby! No need to apologize! They were graced with a beautiful baby boy, Oliver.

The love that they have for each other and for baby O, helped during those first few sleepless weeks and adjustments. This was very apparent when we did finally meet about a month later to discuss their thoughts and desires for their Americanized wedding.

This super fun and whimsical stationery suite fit the bill! The invitation, a 5-panel accordion fold, told their story in an entertaining way, with fun illustrations showing their love for each other. The illustrations, captions, and typography all portrayed their own sense of humor. This design was carried onto their ceremony program – I love that Mitchell was a good sport by letting Chanel tell their guests that she typically takes the upper hand with games they play.

It was an honor that the judges of the 2017 American Advertising Federation show awarded this stationery suite a Silver ADDY award.

STYLIZED WEDDING SHOOT | WEDDING PLANNER & GUIDE 2017

8 March 2017

You know, Madison has some really, really great wedding professionals. I was fortunate enough to collaborate in this Chic Amour Wedding Scape for the 2017 Wedding Planner and Guide. So fun to mix marble with metallic! When pairing gold, copper, and marble with shades of blush pink, peach, and grey, you get a pretty awesome looking décor and design.

Keeping it a subtle accent in the paper goods and cake, marble takes on a contemporary design element. The shades of blush pink, peach, and grey maintain that soft, yet romantic feel. Charlie’s on Main was the perfect backdrop, with their light and airy atmosphere.

So fun that BRIDES Magazine, a leading national wedding source, picked up elements of this wedding scapes for support elements to their online article highlighting marble as a wedding detail! Check out the write-up for yourself here on BRIDES.

AMANDA & CORY | 05 MARCH 2016

5 March 2017

Happy 1 year anniversary to Amanda & Cory! So, after a year of marriage, can you still call yourself newly weds? I think so!

Amanda & Cory wanted to highlight their wedding colors (which coincidentally are University of Wisconsin – Madison’s badger red!). They also wanted to give their guests a peak at their planned décor – the bare branches.

Their invitation suite incorporated both the color red and the branches via lasercut. Love how this turned out. The simple cover of the invitation invited their guests to take a peak inside.

Hope you are celebrating in style this weekend!

COZY CHRISTMAS WEDDING STYLED SHOOT | WINTER 2016

26 December 2016

Christmas IS the most wonderful time of the year! It’s full of family and love. What a perfect time of year for a  (stylized) Christmas wedding!

How fun was it to work with Fiorella of Neira Event Group and Mikayla from Chula Vista Resort on this cozy Christmas wedding styled shoot. Oh gosh! The final images and video gave me chills! Warm-my-heart kind of chills. From the obvious love between the two grooms (grooms in real life!); to the iconic Christmas elements of reds, golds, and plaids; to the glowing of the candles, fireplace, and lights; to, of course my favorite – a fluffy pooch! 

The editors of Equally Wed, a modern wedding resource exclusively dedicated to LGBTQ couples, also found this shoot to be especially inspiring and featured it on their website. See the story here for yourself!

I help contribute to this shoot by supplying the wedding invitation suite, ceremony programs, escort cards and wedding favors. I wanted this stationery suite to symbolize the Christmas spirit, and to be a warm invitation for the two grooms-to-be. Yet, I wanted to step it up a notch and incorporated red foil printing. Love how they turned out!

Here are some of my favorite images – captured by the talented Peer Canvas.

STEFANIE & MICHAEL | 28 MARCH 2015 || Custom Wedding Invitations; silk box invitations, Madison, Wisconsin

15 May 2015

Eleven weeks. Yes, from start to finish, we were able to pull off this unbelievable wedding stationery suite in eleven short (and very quick) weeks—AND we were on vacation for two of those!!

ShoesStefanie & Michael frequent Paris often and wanted that to be a source of inspiration for their wedding. Romantic, elegant, old-world, golds, detailed. Stefanie’s fantastic shoes were also a great source of inspiration. We couldn’t pass up on the incredible detailing on her shoes.

Each of their invitations were sent out in a box. Upon opening the shipping box, invited guests were presented with a Thai silk invitation box wrapped beautifully with a thick ivory satin ribbon. Inside housed the main invitation printed on metallic paper stock in golds and dark grey along with the necessary enclosures.

Personalized menus greeted their guests at dinner by starting the meal off with Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne. Stefanie and Michael each had their own signature drink: Lemon Drop Martini for Stefanie and Brandy Old Fashion Sour for Michael. (Which to choose?!)

And the desserts! Oh my! Wedding cake (2 flavors), Eiffel Tower sugar cookies (of course!), cupcakes (4 yummy flavors), and chocolate covered strawberries. Even Stefanie admits that they might have gone overboard with the desserts. But I think not! You can never have enough dessert!

JESSICA & ROBERT | 21 JUNE 2014 || custom wedding invitations; madison, wisconsin; letterpress

27 March 2015

Here is another one of my favorites from 2014. Jessica & Robert had such a quaint, intimate wedding this past summer.  They wanted a formal, “updated” traditional, and elegant wedding and celebration. The Gates of Heaven was the perfect location for their ceremony, followed by a brunch reception at The University Club on the university campus.  The University Club provided a yummy spread for brunch, which included Jessica’s favorite: Eggs Benedict and Robert’s favorite: Classic French Toast; as well as made-to-order omelettes, beef tenderloin, fire seared ham, and caprese salad not to mention two wedding cake options!

Jessica & Robert’s invitations also had a mix of formal, “updated” traditional, and elegant characterists. The formal and elegance was achieved from letterpress printing and clean design. The square shape, pebble-embossed pewter belly band and typography arrangement lend itself well to the “updated” attribute. This typography treatment, as well as a simple, elegant scroll was carried throughout the rest of their day-of stationery pieces to complete one cohesive look for their stationery suite.

Day-of pieces included maple syrup favors that doubled as escort cards to indicate which table each guest was assigned to, table numbers and menus. We worked with A la Crate Vintage Rentals to put together a number of reception signage that continued to follow this same design on the rentable chalkboards. The afternoon was filled with family and fun, with entertainment provided by Antics Flipbooks, which book cover also carried on the elegant and “updated” traditional look.

Thank you Jessica & Robert for letting us be apart of your special day!

QUYNH & CIAN | 17 MAY 2014 || custom wedding invitations; madison, wisconsin; letterpress

9 December 2014

Can I tell you that I just LOVE this wedding stationery suite?!

Although Quynh & Cian’s wedding was to take place in the rustic yet charming barn at Over the Vines Vineyard & Wine Barn in rural southern Wisconsin, Quynh & Cian’s event was anything but casual. Fine foods and beverages were only natural for this epicure couple, who have traveled the world in search of great cuisine. Their wedding stationery needed to fit this image. A very sleek modern wedding suite was the optimum solution! It was the perfect mix of old and new, of rustic and modern, of vintage and contemporary when paired with the backdrop of Over the Vines and A La Crate Vintage Rentals.

Do you agree with me? From save-the-dates to the invitation suite to day-of pieces (welcome packet pamphlet, ceremony program, place cards, favor tags) to wedding announcement, this is a favorite for sure!!
