REAL WEDDINGS | CASEY & DAN

Could not love anything more about this wedding, and this couple. I met Casey through our neighborhood, and come to find out, I designed one of her good friends wedding invitations about 2 years prior. So it was a perfect match. But good lord, this wedding. Goes to show you that a small and intimate wedding can be pretty much perfection. Casey showed me one picture of a dusty blue flag pole waving on a beach and said "this perfectly describes the wedding." Could not agree with her more. The wedding was stunning, Casey and Dan were incredible. And they did one of my favorite traditions that most couples are scared to do. They got dressed together before the ceremony...Dan even helped Casey into her dress! Right after I opened Just Ink On Paper, I had one couple do this. I must have looked at them with a look on my face that said "that's bad luck to see the bride before the wedding!". Her reply, "if we don't make it as a couple, it won't be because we saw each other before the ceremony." Casey and Dan's pictures from those moments are some of the sweetest I have ever seen. Congratulations Casey and Dan!

REAL WEDDINGS | EBAN & ZACH

So thrilled to share a few pics from Eban and Zach's big day past September on the Eastern Shore. The classic backdrop of Kent Manor Inn was the perfect setting for their I do's. Evan and I hit it off right from the start and I loved every minute working with her designing not only their wedding invitations that incorporated a vintage map of the Eastern Shore, but also their day-of pieces as well. And I think we can all agree on the awesome-ness of her bouquet!

Many thanks to Tara and Renata for the stunning photos!

IN THE STUDIO...

Classic, elegant and timeless...a combination that is beautiful in every sense of the word. Devin and Kevin's invitations were truly stunning. While their save the dates were super fun and whimsical, we went super classic for their invitations. A custom monogram that was not only printed on the belly band in gold foil, but also used as a blind hit on the letterpressed invitations. Stunning!

Absolutely thrilled with Candler and Cory's wedding invitations. A true southern bride, these invitations were classic and timeless. A beautiful letterpress combination of silver foil, gray and the palest blush with a hint of peach...they were stunning.

PHILADELPHIA LOVE

We had the pleasure of designing Kim and Chris's stationery for their big day in Philadelphia at the Crystal Tea Room. Based on our Charm City Collection design, we tailored every detail to the city of brotherly love.Each card incorporated an iconic landmark around the city, complete with a vintage map of the city for the envelope liner, tied together with a gorgeous gold glitter belly band. A beautiful combination of gold foil and black letterpress.

CAPITOL LOVE

While our Charm City Design collection is hugely popular, and as much as I love my hometown, there is something special about these lovely letterpressed DC wedding invitations. Even in different color schemes and iconic images, the suite looks stunning.

REAL WEDDINGS | SHANNON + WILL

Truth be told, I thought long and hard about switching from "Real Weddings | Shannon + Will" to "THAT. DRESS." If Shannon's dress ever goes missing, you might want to check my closet. Loved every minute of working almost exclusively with the mother-of-the-bride. She knew exactly Shannon's taste and thoughts and executed them flawlessly. And even when the most diastrous thing that could ever happen during wedding planning happened, she took it all in stride. 4 months before the wedding, their original venue suffered a devastating fire and everything was lost. The wedding was moved to the Elkridge Club 3 months before the wedding and could not have been more beautiful.
