A Sweet Combination


Charlotte, a native New Yorker and her fiance Justin, a Georgia boy, came to us to create their very special wedding invitations. After talking with the couple we decided what better to represent these two then the fruits of their home towns, the Apple and the Peach. The main logo was inspired from a vintage fruit wrapper, and the cloth pouches a nod to old jelly jar lids cover in fabric. The southern style seersucker is also the same fabric of the brides maid dresses. Overall, we think these beautiful invitations set the mood perfectly for an Upstate NY backyard summer wedding, while bringing in some southern charm!

And lastly, above is how it all came be, with a lot of fabric, gocco-ing, sewing, trimming and most importantly a whole lot a love :)

So cute. I am totally throwing a big event, just to get to work with y'all. :) How do you feel about 39th birthday parties in New Orleans? My husband refuses to have a 40th birthday, so I'm thinking a huge 39th!

These are BEAUTIFUL! I love every detail. I love that the details (the fruit) have a tie with the bride and groom. It's so meaningful. Love it!

WOW!
So Cool.
I am looking to design my baby's announcement and looking for inspiration (this look would be very cool) and looked at who printed it....they are in my town. I've picked up some of their work at paper shows. In fact, my co-worker has a notepad of theirs and he asked if this work is something like his notepad and I told him they were pressed by the same people.
