[wedding reception stationery] periodic table theme

Creatively Fun Update:  I wanted to quickly showcase another example on how you can customize your “periodic themed” reception stationery!  Tami sent me her invitation to design from (on left), so I could easily customize her table cards & escort tents to match!

They chose to personalize my periodic table escort & table cards for their wedding reception. I love these images they recently sent to me by Cindy Guessford photography.

[real wine wedding] amanda + brian in sonoma

Congrats to Amanda & Brian, married October 1st, 2011 at Sebastiani Winery in Sonoma, California!

I’m so glad amanda found papercake! We first designed their save the date eat, drink & be married, then carried on the color & typography theme throughout their invitation suite.

See below for more design inspiration; I’ve chosen just a few of their gorgeous wedding day photos (shot by Mike Huyn Photography.)

>> I provided all the reception stationery to match & I love how they slid the escort cards into each wine cork (they added a slit in all the corks plus flattened out one side so they wouldn’t roll).

A note from the bride: “We went to the winery and asked for about 100 corks. Most wineries are more than happy to provide the corks for free because it’s FREE advertising for them!”

[real wedding] vanessa + kevin in los angeles

Congrats to my very good friends, Vanessa & Kevin, married September 24th, 2011 at the Smog Shoppe in Culver City/Los Angeles, California!


Vanessa is also a graphic designer, she created her ‘Pam Am’ travel themed stationery from the save the dates to the table & escort cards! I loved it, so of course I had to document all the event details while I was in attendance to showcase how cool everything was!

* we loved how Yoonwonx Photography set up the photo area! we had a great time! 😉 Thanks Kev & Vanessa! xo

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.

*a unique idea to combine a thoughtful favor (apple butter made in lianne’s home town); the seating cards were personalized as the jar labels to seat each guest at their assigned table.

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.

Congrats to Leah & Rob, married on September 10, 2011 in Malibu, California!
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.

[real wedding] grace + leo

Congrats to Grace & Leo!
Married July 2, 2011 in Beverly Hills, California.

I’m so happy I can finally showcase this unique wedding invitation suite along with the awesome photography from grace & leo’s big day! {my favorites are shown below by brandon kidd photography}

We first designed their 
eye-chart save the date postcards, {which we also used on their escort tent cards, shown below}. The personalized monogram was based on the Ishihara color plate! This was a very difficult design process for me, but one I DO NOT regret 😉 especially since they added the monogram to their cake {by Scrumptious Wedding Cakes}!  We slipped the RSVP & Wedding Map enclosure cards behind the tall, 2-layer invitation and added an orange grosgrain ribbon to hold it all together. Of course we had to add the matching all-in-one guest /return address label wraps to the outer orange envelopes! fun-fun!

The wedding reception stationery matched the invitations, but we added blue card stock instead of the peacock color for the layered ceremony program. Also shown above is their square menu fan with eye-chart escort & table number tents below.

[real wedding] jessica + jon in georgia

Congrats to Jessica & Jon, married on June 11, 2011 in Augusta, Georgia!
I’m super happy jessica contacted me last year to design their custom monogram, save the date tickets and wedding invitations (all shown below). I just love how they used their green and ‘J’ theme throughout their ceremony & reception…especially the monogram on the cake + dance floor!  yay!

And thanks to mom, Gwen, who directed me to the wonderful wedding day photos
