Stationery | Rick + Tonia

Just a few short months ago, my friend Rick found his dream girl – and two days ago they tied the knot!  It may have been a fast track to “I do” but when you know you know… you know?  Although I was not able to travel to their wedding in Greenville this weekend, I did have the distinct pleasure of working with the lovely bride on designing her invitation suite.  Tonia shared her ideas of blue mason jars, wildflowers, and charcoal grays for this July event.  Wedding ceremony in an old church.  Reception on the lawn of a plantation house.  She also really wanted their initials carved on a tree.  The result?  Rustic elegance with southern charm.  And pops of mason jar blue.  Congratulations, you two.  Happy Honeymooning!!

The main card was printed front + back.  Guests were first greeted by this oak tree carved with the couple’s initials.

Invitation on the flipside.  All wrapped up in twine.

A separate card for rehearsal dinner guests.

Sweet details.  And a custom rubber stamp!

Stationery | Hatch Show Print

When my studio line rang and I heard, “Can you design a rehearsal dinner invitation in the style of a Hatch Show print?”  I didn’t miss a beat and said, “Absolutely!”  The lovely Karen Kaforey of Signature Events coordinated all the details for her client while I got in touch with my inner-Nashville gal.  My love for typography (the design and arrangement of letterforms) combined with the opportunity to communicate a message with that typography really gets my creativity flowing.  Combine that with a really great point of inspiration and voilá!  The result: a rehearsal dinner invitation evoking the screen printed feel of an old Nashville standby.  How very Nashville.  How very festive!!

Stationery | Young Program

More ivory + chocolate brown + coral loveliness.  These liturgy programs echo the design of Kylee + Dan’s wedding invitation suite.  Did you know the guys wore brown tuxes and the gals wore coral dresses?  Just perfect for an afternoon wedding in May.  If you’d like more information about stationery or event ephemera design, message me using the Say Hello link above!

Stationery | Young Suite

It’s almost the Big Day!  Kylee + Daniel are celebrating their wedding in just about 24 hours!  And I am pleased as punch to share their invitation suite with you.  This design was a follow up to their Save the Date postcard.  An elegant ivory paper with chocolate brown ink and shades of coral accents, this suite is formal, timeless, and full of fresh personality for a May afternoon event.  Be sure to catch the Inspiration Board for this bit of loveliness if you missed it.  And stay tuned next week to see Kylee + Dan’s coordinating wedding program…  Congrats, you two!!

It’s time for Round 2!  Sarah of Music City Events and Gregory of Gregory Byerline Photography are once again joining forces to bring you an exclusive bridal event on February 24th.  And Design in August will be the featured stationery studio!

  • It’s an actual party for couples to experience what their wedding day can be like.  Instead of visiting 30-40 vendors in an 8×8 space at bridal shows, see 16 carefully selected vendors in action.
  • Enjoy a swanky night out at the Noah Liff Opera Center from 6:30–9:30 p.m.  It’s a fairly new event venue with modern & stylish sensibility. (Follow the link – isn’t it fabulous?!)
  • Design in August will be the featured custom invitations designer!  I will be on hand to show samples and chat about my design services for your custom design needs.  You will also get to see my designs in action, as I will be providing all the custom paper goods for the party.
  • Savor delicious hors d’oeuvres and scrumptious desserts (Hello, TLC-featured Maples Wedding Cakes!) while enjoying Little Black Dress cocktails (with stir sticks designed by yours truly!) and local brews with music by a live band.  Bring your dancing shoes!

Each $15 ticket includes dinner, dessert and dancing PLUS an entry into a drawing for a Grand Prize worth over $5,000 from top-shelf Nashville wedding vendors!  That’s three zeroes… and a big chunk saved from your overall wedding budget.  Among so many wedding goodies, the Grand Prize Package includes custom thank you cards by Design in August. See a complete list of bridal vendors at the Little Black Dress Revue vendor page.  See you there!
