AndieAugieWeddingMemoire Studio

While searching for a past clients wedding day photos, I came across these stunning images …thank you social media! Congrats to Andie & Augie, married on September 10, 2016 at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, California. [photography by Mémoire Studio].

We customized my square, booklet-style pocket folder invitation suite by incorporating their navy, blush & beige theme colors. For the reception stationery, we picked up all the design details from the invites onto the menus, seating cards, and program fans (Andie tied her own ribbon embellishment onto the fan sticks)! I also love that we added the gold-glitter card stock to the escort tent cards & menus, a very glamorous touch.

After their save the dates were sent out [see below], Kate & TJ wanted to customize my SF city skyline wedding invitation suite. We changed the paper colors and fonts, and moved the skyline to the top of the 5×7 invite card.

We also carried on this design style & paper color combo for their reception stationery; table signs, large format program, and 2-layer escort tent cards!

[Real Wedding] A Colorful Great Gatsby Inspired Event

MichelleKevinSuiteCongrats to Michelle & Kevin, married on September 19, 2015 at The Generals Daughter in Sonoma, California. I can’t get over how gorgeous all the colors came together in these amazing photos by Rebecca Gosselin Photography.

When I met with Michelle, I was so excited to utilize her fun color palette when designing her custom invitations into a unique, art deco styled suite. I also created a ‘Great Gatsby’ themed monogram to use throughout their stationery (see matchbook & cuff links too!). Everything really came together beautifully by combining the stunning bouquets [by Fantasy Flowers] with the wedding day coordination [A Savvy Event]. I had to find time to showcase just a few of my favorite photos for your planning inspiration! 😉

I was thrilled to illustrate the San Francisco skyline for Lianne & Al’s customized wedding invitation…and I love that the design was carried on throughout the reception stationery! Page Bertelsen photographed these beautiful images that lianne was sweet enough to share with me.

Uyen (their sassy-girl wedding coordinator) asked me to design the wedding reception stationery, which included their unique program fan + menu & table signs! These beautiful photos were shot by Lane Dittoe Fine Art Wedding Photography

> their wedding program fan was printed on 5×7 bracket cards, with the main ceremony & reception info printed on the front card & their creative Thank You on the back card. I then adhered each card together with a jumbo stick in between.

Congrats to Vanessa + Albemar on their wedding celebration!
wedding monogram

Above is the custom monogram I first designed for them, we then created the full invitation & stationery suite. This was such a fun project, especially working in the rsvp tear-off postcard, wedding map, monogram label with belly band & fitting all the info they needed into a nice, neat little package.

*There are lots of ways to customize this design to match your theme; change the monogram, paper colors, fonts & ink!

wedding program cards with brad

The program was their idea and worked out perfectly, they actually chose to do ‘part’ DIY by buying and adding the brads themselves. I also printed their round, all-in-one ‘escort favor labels’ + table tent cards … UPDATE!  wedding reception photos are here!
