2023 Invitations and Stationery

I’m thrilled to share the wedding invitations and stationery from our 2023 real weddings in the DC area. I’m still in love with flat lays, or still lifes as Eli Turner exquisitely called them.

Your save-the-date and wedding invitation (along with your wedding website) are the first impressions that your guests will have of your wedding day. You can use these items to build excitement and anticipation, in addition to giving direct information and unwritten cues to your guests. I know it is popular to use a photo on the save-the-date, but there is nothing wrong with matching your wedding invitation design to show consistency to your audience.

Benjamin McLean – this client really let me run wild with ideas, which is how we came up with the message in a bottle escort cards and the multi-layered tablescapes with bold emerald elements!

Astrid Photography – I love all the fun elements here – a drawing of the venue, the monogram crest, the sketch of the couple’s dog. It sounds all over the place but it was all tied together so well!

Lissa Ryan – I love how this couple, who are book lovers for sure, embraced the library theme for their MLK Library DC wedding. It was all DIY and I think it turned out so so well!
