Stationery from Start to Finish
Your wedding is one of the most memorable days in your life — your wedding invitations should be just as memorable. Together, we will create a suite that is a reflection of you as a couple and the event you're planning. We love starting with a save the date and continuing the design all the way through event day. Below, you'll find a few examples of what guests will receive in the months leading up to event day. You'll also find pieces utilized on event days — like programs and menus — to fun items like custom cocktail napkins, interactive escort displays, welcome boxes, signage and decals on the dance floor.

Devyn & Marc
Devyn and Marc were planning two weddings — one in Australia, where Marc calls home, and one in Texas, where Devyn grew up. For their Texas wedding, the couple wanted an upscale, Texan vibe. We began with the couple's monogram, which was inspired by a cattle brand. The invitation suite was paired with a leather band for rustic texture, and a classy black invitation box to present their guests with. The guests each received a copy of the bride's favorite book as a wedding favor, complete with custom blind embossed leather bookmark. The books also helped guests find their seats, as each were wrapped with paper noting each person’s name and table assignment. The couple's wedding took place in November 2020, so instead of masks for the guests, we created bandanas with a custom map of the resort — useful and fun! The couple's menu was on four-ply card stock, black letterpress with bronze metal corners as a nod to spurs. The monogram was also seen on the couples' welcome cards, hotel door hangers and late night snack to-go boxes.

Laura Lee & Connor
Laura Lee and Connor planned an elegant New Year's Eve wedding with a dash of their fun-loving personalities sprinkled in. To start, we created a custom crest to adorn the clear acrylic invitation suite, with accompanying pieces in dusty blue and navy. Coordinating programs guided guests through the ceremony. Upon entering the reception space, guests were greeted by an expansive wall of Champagne flutes to not only get them in the spirit but help them find their seat for dinner. Throughout the reception, guests could relax in the lounge, which boasted decorative pillows sporting the couple’s monogram. To get the party started, signature cocktails, which were illustrated for reference, were served in customized disco ball cups. The crest appeared a few times throughout the reception, most noticeably on the dance floor, and again on the menus, embroidered dinner napkins, and even the glass covers. The thoughtful bride and groom provided Texas-themed bandanas customized with their wedding date, alongside cowboy hats, as a festive mask-alternative and to don as midnight approached.

Sophia & Kevin
Sophia and Kevin were born and raised in Sacramento, but did not meet until college at Berkley. After they graduated, they relocated to Austin for work and visited the Dallas Arboretum, and knew one day that is where they would marry. The couple envisioned a crest with their gold, sage and yellow color palette to carry throughout the event. The invitation featured metallic gold thermography, ridged recycled cotton paper and a sage green velvet envelope liner. The suite was bound with a vellum wrap, gold cord and a wax seal peppered with gold foil flakes. Sophia and Kevin wanted their guest to feel special, so they curated welcome bags with a coordinating a welcome note, cookies with their monogram, and other treats for the weekend. Their ceremony program also used their monogram, and a peachy silk ribbon. The guests each received a bottle of wine with thank you wine label and wax seal as a favor. The circular bar was adorned with their custom monogram crest and their signature drink was a mojito — complete with water color illustration of the beverage. The place settings completed the look with vellum band and wax seal to set the tone for the reception.

Courtney & Michael
Courtney was born and raised in Texas, Michael in Oklahoma. They met in college at the University of Texas A&M and ultimately settled in the Dallas, Fort Worth area after college. Courtney had always imagined getting married on her family's ranch in Waco, and wanted something reflective of the location, but still formal enough for a wedding. We created a custom monogram with a Texan vibe, while still remaining elegant, with rustic detailing. The suite was brown letterpress printed, and bound to a linen wrapped backer with their monogram etched on the back and rope embellishments as a nod to the ranch location. Beneath the tented reception space, guests discovered a delightful menu affixed to blush, paisley patterned leather. The couple also hosted a welcome event for out of town guests, with an invitation featuring a cowboy riding a bucking steed, adhered to to a lovely brown paisley leather. The welcome invitation suite was adorned with lasso to boot to give the event a different, yet cohesive feel to the wedding weekend.

Julianna & James
Julianna and James, with roots in Texas, decided to exchange marriage vows at the iconic Hotel Drover, in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. The main element the couple desired was a brand-style monogram. The couple's double-J's intertwined perfectly with the couple's married name! Their invitation suite was dusty blush letterpress, with an illustration of Hotel Drover featured on the details insert and envelope liner.

At the table, the guests perused a coordinating menu, with heart-felt thank you from Julianna and James. Their brand-style monogram was carried through to bar signage and the cake, creating a cohesive look for the entire day.

Julie & Matt
Julie and Matt share a mutual love of beer and knew they wanted to incorporate that love of brew into their wedding monogram. We decided on a beer hop, and incorporated their initials into the vine of the two hops. Their invitation suite featured a modern, minimal design, black letterpress, and blind embossed beer hop tied around the suite with leather cord. The guests found their seats with a hanging escort display featuring beer openers with engraved monograms, which also served as their wedding favor, and die cut beer hop shaped escort cards. The couple also used the monogram on beer glasses, a cutting board their guests signed as their guest book and cocktail napkins. The signage for the event was black with white lettering and the menu featured delicate place cards tied with leather cord, and beer hops peeking out of the corner, keeping the design cohesive from start to finish.

Ellie and Kevin decided to say "I Do" on Ellie's family ranch. We designed a monogram crest featuring blush florals, the couples initials, and quails for the family's ranch — Quail Crossing. A custom map of the property was included to give guests an overview of the ranch, and the suite was printed in a warm brown thermography. The escort cards were acrylic, in the shape of the line, on a shot glass featuring the couple's custom monogram.

Melissa & Forrest
Melissa and Forrest were a marriage of not only two people, but two cultures. Their goal was to combine their two cultural backgrounds into their wedding monogram crest. Forrest with a Scottish heritage, and Melissa with a hispanic heritage. The monogram featured bougainvillea's, with the crest itself and tartan featuring shades of green, blue and navy. The suite was bound with a belly band inspired by Spanish tile. The couple carried the aesthetic set with the invitation suite through to their escort cards, which also served as their favor, Mexican sugar cookies, which were bound with leather tie and Scottish tassel.
