[wedding stationery] naomi + keith in beverly hills

Congrats to Naomi & Keith, married on September 24, 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA.
I was privileged to design their wedding reception stationery, which included the ceremony programs, edible favor labels, escort cards and table number tents. Their photographer, Heather Kincaid, recently sent me a few photos of these creations that were shot on the big day.

*reception stationery: I picked up the design from the invitations for the escort & table tents, we even added the fuchsia lace to the table cards {another reason why it’s always good to purchase more yards than you need  😉  I love how all these small details bring together the colors beautifully; linens, flowers, paper & candy bar too!

Congrats dar & col!!   *darlene was a diy pro! I provided the PDFs for her stationery designed & ready to print / assemble on her own. She based her wedding program on hilary & elizabeth’s layered program, but personalized the details to match her invite along with adding her own lace. **also, read more about her wedding invitations here!

They first asked me to design a wedding monogram for them, then I customized their save the date ticket & wedding invitation using the 2 green colors in their theme. During the design process I found out that they actually met online playing World of Warcraft!!  which was very cool to hear since I myself played the WoW beta many-many moons ago.

I love when my clients carry the monogram & colors from their invites onto the wedding cake. This cake looks so cute along with the cupcakes at the center of each table. Sweets made by Susie Cakes Bakery and flowers provided by Rafeal Florist.

I’m super excited that they decided to include their “WoW history” into the reception stationery! They printed the escort & table cards themselves. She said it took a bit of Photoshop, but they got the idea & graphics from the WOW website. They used the races from the game to identify each table, then guests were assigned to each race (table).

WoW wedding gift tags

The Wedding party & parents were given gifts with WoW name tags on each saying what they had achieved…another creative DIY addition to their theme!

Nikki actually found her feather headpiece/veil on amazon!   And finally I just love this photo of aaden in a tux! 😉 Thanks to Revell Studios & Megs photography for sharing their images and of course to nikki & ian for sending them my way!

[design update] custom invites & tickets

The wedding season has slowed down a bit so I now have time to work on new holiday card designs, + I can finally show some recent customized invites…

…like Kelly‘s 3-layer, ink stamped Wedding invitation {shown below on the left} which was chosen to be personalized for a bridal shower invite {redesign on the right}. The wording & fonts were changed along with the cardstock paper & ink color, eggplant to bronze.

Also popular to customize is the Concert Ticket Invite or Save the Date, which can be changed for any party or event {all I need is your personalized wording & colors to match}. I’ve created Bat Mitzvah, Stagette/Bachelorette, Wedding, even smaller Escort/Place card seating tickets {the band name is the table name, sample shown below for matt & sophia’s wedding reception}!

[edible favors] all-in-one escort cards + macarons

Love this idea that Uyen at Sassy Girl Weddings organized for Kimie + Masa’s wedding… color-coded macaron escort cards: name on the front with table name / # on the back. The color denotes the food selection for each guest once placed at their table setting. The flags can either be label stickers wrapped around the toothpick or a piece of paper stuck together with reversible tape. The sign in the frame is super cute too!
