We were so excited when Kate Ignatowski reached out to us about working together on a modern, New Orleans inspired shoot. The inspiration started with the venue — a hip new spot called 501 Union in Brooklyn. Kate envisioned a wedding with a New Orleans styled vibe with lots of candle-light and Spanish moss to go with the modern, refined elements of the space. We created a custom version of our Good Show invitation suite in black and camel inks, which included invitations with lined envelopes, save the dates, menus and place cards to match her mood board. Calligrapher Patricia Mumau hand calligraphed the place cards and a Cognac tasting menu for the shoot, and even addressed the envelopes in her amazing new Murdock hand! The shoot was featured today on Ruffled, so be sure to check it out to see even more gorgeous images. Many thanks to Kate for inviting us to be a part of this amazing collaboration!

We were thrilled to be a part of Kate Ignatowski‘s romantic photoshoot that was featured on Green Wedding Shoes earlier this week! The inspiration shoot was held at Knockdown Center, a partially restored glass factory with lots of charm and industrial grit. Carly — one of our more modern letterpress wedding invitations — helped set the scene, which was filled with lots of lovely neutral hues and an inspired mix of vintage and modern details.
Our letterpress wedding invitations have received some amazing publicity lately, so today it’s time again to say thank you to the amazing editors who have shined the spotlight on Bella Figura this spring! Our first feature is from Martha Stewart Weddings, where we created foil stamped and letterpress wedding invitations for one of their gorgeous real weddings. Megan, the bride, submitted the artwork for us to print — we love the glamorous outcome!
Several of our letterpress wedding invitations were featured in the spring issue of The Knot: our popular gold foil stamped Divya Formal invitation, the modern Dash invitation, and our minimalist Alton invitation were all shown throughout this issue.
Brides magazine featured Bella Figura in several of their recent issues: first, a lovely lavender customization of our Lenox Botanical design was featured in the April / May issue, along with menus, place cards, and favor cards from our Circolo suite.
We love seeing the real weddings of our customers, but it’s an extra-special treat when we get to see them in print! Martha Stewart Weddings magazine featured not one, but two real weddings of Bella Figura brides & grooms in their Fall 2012 issue. The first wedding featured our modern Pyramid design by Ellie Snow, while the second showcased our Garden Vine design by Erin Jang. Check out some of the other fantastic publications that Bella Figura has been spotted in this fall.
Inside Weddings included several Bella Figura invitations for their Fall 2012 issue as well — Kelle Anne McCarter’s Canto design, Lindsy Aragona’s Overlook design and a customization of Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Cecilia all shared the spotlight.
Town & Country Weddings put together a fabulous round-up of inspiration for a New York City wedding, and included a gorgeous customization of our Charmed New York invitation design as part of the feature.
Pacific Weddings magazine included Ian Koenig’s Dash design and Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Indie Twill design in their gorgeous, equestrian-inspired reception set-up. Bonus: they’ve got even more photos from this amazing shoot on their website!
Brides magazine featured Bella Figura in both their October and their November issues! In October, letterpress place cards featuring our Rosemary design were included as part of a Tuscan Garden inspiration palette. The November issue featured several Bella Figura designs — our Bejeweled design fit in perfectly with a “Roaring Twenties” inspiration page (which is overflowing with glamorous, Gatsby-esque touches) and three of our foil stamped invitations (Dada by Jamie Lea Bertsch; Glamorous Blooms and Fugue by Kamal) were included in an “All that Glitters” feature.
It’s time again to say thanks to the amazing magazine and blog editors that featured Bella Figura’s letterpress wedding invitations over the summer! The Knot featured 3 different Bella Figura designs in their beautiful Fall 2012 issue: the ever-popular New Calligraphy design by Debi Zeinert, and our Vintage Gardiner and Pochoir designs by Amy Graham Stigler.
Gifts and Decorative Accessories Magazine featured our hot pink and day-glo orange Storybook Romance invitation design in their May 2012 issue.
We’d also love to say thanks to the following blogs for featuring our invitations on their amazing sites! BRIDES, Green Wedding Shoes, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Southern Weddings, Invitation Crush, Blue Bergitt, Paper Crave, Racked, Charlotte Lucey, and Woodsy Wedding.
We were thrilled to work with event planner Shawna Marie for this amazing inspiration shoot (which is overflowing with gold and glamour) that was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! This dazzling save the date session served as a preview for the couple’s upcoming gold, black and white wedding soiree, and our Glamorous Blooms design set the perfect tone. A stunning starburst mirror, cute cupcakes and glittery glassware matched the style of the invitation perfectly and set the tone for an ultra-glamorous save the date party. Head on over to Style Me Pretty to see even more photos from the shoot!
