We are excited to share another regional collection that we created for our friends at Fete Collection. The beautiful city of Boston was the inspiration behind these designs as we created them. We’ll let our designers take it from here to describe more about the invitations below:
Pulling inspiration from the Boston Public library we wanted a refined literary feel. The suite features illustrations to customize each piece and pay homage to the venue. You’ll find books, the guard lions, and even the icon banker’s lamps that make Dartmouth feel special.
Taking notes from The State Room, Faneuil is bold, modern, and stunning. The most unique piece has to be the pocket to hold the insert cards with the pop of blind embossed initials to customize.
The quintessential Boston suite. Modern New England with a refined touch – look for Fenway Park and four-legged friends on the details card. What’s better than fun personal motifs for your guest to discover? Our Rowes Wharf suite has it all.
The Atlantic design is as unique and handsome as its muse, The InterContinental Boston. To borrow from this hotel’s striking backdrop of Fort Point Channel and its polished event spaces, we used monochromatic blues, modern fonts, geometric patterns and a sleek hexagon-shaped die-cut. A custom watercolor illustration of this couple’s lovable french bulldog added that oh-so-perfect personal touch to this suite.
If splendor, elegance and tradition are what you are looking for in a wedding invitation, then the Copley design is for you. We were captivated by the Grand Ballroom of the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. Its exquisite details, including sparkling crystal chandeliers and gilded, thirty-foot ceilings, provided us with endless inspiration for this suite. By using our luxurious handmade paper, gold matte foil accents, silk ribbon and a hand-illustrated monogram fit for royalty, we’ve made this suite simply perfect for anyone’s happily ever after.
Wellesley, Massachusetts is home to the Gardens at Elm Bank – a one-of-a-kind property that includes thirty-six acres of gardens, open fields, and historic structures. The Wellesley design was created with this tranquil location in mind. To keep things soft and sweet, we used muted grays and greens along with simple typography. For a bit of whimsy and romance, we used a beautiful vintage botanical print.
Arlington reflects the timeless elegance and chic, fashion forward approach to design that was use used in recently renovating The Newbury Hotel, it’s luxurious inspiration. A sophisticated color palette of neutrals with soft blues and greens and elegant pops of tawny shine foil were brought in from its grand ballroom. And the embossing detail was inspired by the hotel’s magnificent ceiling tiles. All tied together with a liner pattern using both elements to create a one-of-a-kind design.
Boylston was designed with the modern sophistication of the Four Seasons hotel in mind. A fall wedding in Boston was ultimately the driving inspiration for the illustrations of the iconic Ducklings, perfect fall foliage views at Boston’s Public Garden and the tawny shine foil to pop against the currant ink and papers.
The idyllic landscape of Cedar Lakes Estate was the backdrop for Rebecca and Brant’s recent summertime wedding. Using our Bradley design as inspiration they chose a palette of atlantic, pansy and british rose inks as the backdrop to our copper shine foil, digitally printing on our Bella Smooth cotton paper. A coordinating enveloper liner was the finishing touch on these watercolor wedding invitations.

Over the next few weeks our esteemed lead client coordinator Tiffany is going to be sharing wedding inspiration from the movies. Today, an unexpected source of absolutely beautiful wedding colors – Jaws!
One of the very few movies I cannot pass by if it’s on television – I will drop everything and watch it in it’s entirety. This color palette is sophisticated and ocean-like, proving inspiration can come from unexpected places!
This pretty letterpress wedding invitation is our Flourish design printed in persimmon and atlantic inks. It’s also printed on our A7 size card in a horizontal orientation instead of the square shape of the sample design. We love the pretty combination of modern design, bold colors and pretty script font.
