We are over the moon to share yet another regional collection! We created these designs specifically for our friends at Broadway Papers. The city of Milwaukee inspired the invitations that you will see pictured below. We’ll let our designers take it from here to describe more about their creative process working on the designs below:
Villa Terrace was the main inspiration for the Sopra suite. An Italian Renaissance-style home turned into an art museum and garden set the stage for a warm and traditional suite. Taking notes from the home and an old-world feel, a luxurious foil map liner of Milwaukee was a must.
With a 180 degree view of Lake Michigan’s aqua waters, The Pilot House of Milwaukee heavily influenced our Sullivan design. Watercolor was a must for this suite, so we transformed the Milwaukee skyline into a vibrant work of art in a fresh color palette of pinks, blues and greens. Modern, crisp font treatments balanced out the entirety of the suite while hints of rose gold shine foil added extra sparkle.
The Milwaukee Art Museum, a work of art itself, inspired this modern suite. The venue’s grand sweeping architecture, bold lines and sleek + simple color palette were reflected into the Calatrava design by combining modern typography with Light Gray paper, White Matte foil, embossing, and soft metallics with Pearl and Silver Matte foil as accents to tie it all together.
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.
We are so happy to share another regional collection that we created for our friends at Oliver’s Twist. The city of Carmel was the inspiration behind these designs. We’ll let our designers take it from here to describe more about their creative process working on the invitations below:
Hotel Carmichael of Carmel, Indiana showcases some of the most detailed woodwork and exquisite craftsmanship within its walls. The Feinstein design suite pulled inspiration from a combination of the hotel’s Feinstein’s Cabaret, an upscale entertainment venue, and its Library’s rich textures, moody colors and vintage vibe. The Feinstein design uses layers of texture, moody midnight blues and the warmest wood tones. Each pattern, shape and image was inspired by the Hotel Carmichael — a boutique hotel near the performing arts and design district of Carmel, Indiana.
The Carmichael design suite has captured the luxurious and refined space of this boutique hotel’s Grand Ballroom. Ornate ceilings, crystal chandeliers, soft blues and hints of gold heavily inspired this breathtaking traditional design. Our Carmichael design reflects the the essence of this space with pastel blues, metallic golds, delicate whites and ornately illustrated scrollwork.
The stunning Hotel Carmichael of Carmel, Indiana exudes decorative style from floor to ceiling and was the inspiration for our Adagio suite. Its signature arched windows, black and white diamond-patterned marble floors, and ornamental detail of the lobby’s stair railing all served as the main inspiration for this art deco infused design.
We are so excited to share the collection we created for our friends at Magnificent Milestones. All the designs were made with Chicago in mind. We’ll let our designers take it from here to describe their inspiration behind the invitations below:
Revel Motor Row, a restored historic Chicago landmark, serves as an event space filled with industrial elegance. The large arched courtyard windows as well as the beautiful stained glass window that sits above the building’s entryway are embodied in the details throughout our Revel suite. The black and white theme adorned with touches of Tawny Shine also lends to this suite’s modern classic style.
Pops of bright colors, modern patterns and playful motifs bring our Cabana design to life. Inspired by the Shore Club at North Avenue Beach in Chicago, this suite gives nothing but cool summer vibes. There is no better way to depict endless lake views than printing ombre letterpress in our Caribbean and Royal inks.
It’s all in the details. The Ivy Room’s historic courtyard dripping in fairytale-like vines gives the ambiance of an enchanting European destination. The Ivy suite captures those details throughout with illustrated vines, an endearing formal script paired with a simple san serif bringing harmony and beauty.
Honeycomb showcases two prominent landmarks within Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. The invitation features a sweet bee motif, playful typography, and a pattern inspired by the Education Pavillon, more commonly know as the “Chicago Honeycomb” for it’s honeycomb-like architectural design. The bee motif is carried throughout the set – you might even find some hiding in the details gatefold, a nod to the beautiful French doors at Café Brauer.
Our first regional collection was inspired by iconic wedding venues in and around Brooklyn, New York. The collection of 12 wedding suites and 11 stand-alone save the dates features hand-illustrated artwork, new paper colors, and plenty of nods to New York.
