Indigo Envelope

Glitz & Glamour Durham Wedding

We often get requests for location-themed invitations and the skyline images we create are a popular choice. This time we were able to amp up the glam! This Durham wedding invitation suite features a blush pink and gold color scheme. To top it off we added a bold gold glitter band wrap. The combination really catches your eye.

Durham Wedding Details

The programs include an illustration of Duke Chapel, where the ceremony was held. Dorothy and John had us create many extra details for their reception held at Bay 7 in the American Tobacco Campus. Extras include menus, thank you notes, and even a sign suggesting guests try the night’s signature drink “The Crash Davis”. The name being a reference to the couple’s newly shared last name.  

Congrats Dorothy & John, and thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special event!

A Rustic Fearrington Village Wedding

It was a delight to custom illustrate a rustic stationery collection for a wedding at The Barn at Fearrington Village, located near Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Our stationery collection included ink and watercolor drawings of The Barn and the trademark Galloway cows of Fearrington Village. The illustrations we created were mixed with pale gray woodgrain textured pocket cards, a hint of rouge, and lots of lovely Southern hospitality.

Fearrington Village Details

This wonderful couple spent time on all the little details such as tags for cowbell place cards, fans to take the edge off a warm late summer garden ceremony, napkins, drinkware, treat bags for their guests, and so many other special things. They partied ’till the cows came home… (See our festive hotel door hangers if you need proof.)

Typography Focused Invitation in Blush

A trend that is taking the wedding invitation marketplace by storm lately revolves around featuring strong, bold, typography focused elements. As designers, this is music to our ears. We love playing with typography, and when it also gets to be a key focus of the design, that’s even better. This was our chance to put our own spin on the trend, mixing it with travel-themed elements.

Typography Focused Invitation Details

This suite features warm ecru paper, blush key features, and eggplant accents. A textured “seashell” paper backing card with subtle gold reflects adds polish as well as pop to the suite. Most noteworthy, the main typeface used added the perfect amount of flair in addition to a handmade feel. A monogram of the couple’s initials was also created to tie their style through to the envelopes and thank you notes. Boarding passes took the place of place cards for this reception and corresponded to a “location” found on the matching tables markers. (We really love doing travel themes and have many ideas we can tweak for your event!) T-shirts and koozies made for useful mementos of the occasion.

Congratulations Jessye & Daniel!

An Elegant Geography-themed Wedding in Durham, NC

After we learned that a couple had spent a lot of their relationship moving around, we suggested a geography-themed wedding suite. The designs showed where they “met, loved, and married,” and also included our famous version of the Durham, NC skyline. The ceremony for this couple was held in downtown Durham at the gorgeous Trinity United Methodist Church. Afterwards, the reception was held at The Cotton Room. The Cotton Room tied in the couple’s invitation color scheme with beautiful purple and white flowers. The soft candlelight on the tables and perfectly placed accent lighting really set the tone for the evening. It seems like the smiles on the couple’s faces says it all here. 

Invitation Suite & Details Features

Featured on this invitation is the Durham skyline which accents various pieces such as the envelope liner and programs. For that extra bit of pizzazz, address label wraps are adhered to the envelopes. To finish off the Pocketfold™, a rectangular seal with the couple’s names and wedding date is placed on the outside. As you’ll see in the programs, the guest’s attention is called to the wedding party and ceremony details with bold graphics that were custom illustrated to reflect the actual people in the event. Other touches included our seating chart, which as a large sign was used to enhance the room’s decor. It was important to the couple to give guests a little bit of information about themselves and how they met. Table tents displayed this information about different places that were special to them. To give everything a super personal touch, personalized labels were made for the beer served at the reception.

Congrats Laura & Steven and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

Traditional Navy Invitations with a Monogram

The vision for these traditional navy invitations with a monogram was a classic and Southern wedding for this lovely couple.  To incorporate some Southern ‘flavor,’ the couple chose to have local jars of honey as their favors.  What a sweet idea!  

Traditional Navy Invitations with a Monogram Details

Jennifer and Brandon’s design featured an Envelopments PocketFold™  invitation in navy, which nicely kept together all of the information a guest might need, including RSVP and details cards.  Accented with platinum silver, the navy is formal and traditional, while the metallic silver adds “wow” factor.  The focal point was a traditional monogram with their initials, which tied together all of the elements of their suite.  A beautiful digital calligraphy font and classic flourishes were other focal points of the design.

Congratulations Jennifer and Brandon!

Blue and Kraft Die-cut Shape Invitations

The town of Chapel Hill is just down the road from our main office in Durham, North Carolina. Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina, also known as the Tar Heels. As a result, we often work with UNC students! We created this kraft die-cut suite for a couple who wanted to incorporate the school’s distinct “Carolina Blue.” North Carolinians are all about their pride!

Blue and Kraft Die-cut Shape Wedding Invitation Details

The invitation suite features a kraft envelope with an envelope liner and lots of the signature blue color. The dark blue Pocketcard by Envelopments creates contrast and a frame for the invitation panel and details cards. The invitation panel itself is printed on a vintage die-cut cardstock, and then backed with a patterned paper. A handwritten font added that extra special personal touch . 

Congratulations Laura & Kevin!

An Art Deco Wedding at Lake Tahoe

We love Art Deco-inspired events like this wedding in Lake Tahoe, which was a scene fit for the Great Gatsby himself. For Art Deco events, we create invitations and other details using our collection of several thousand graphics and images from this memorable era in art and design.

Art Deco Wedding at Lake Tahoe Details

Lauren and Bradley’s design used two bold features. The “wow” factor came from metallic, foil-stamped, copper accents. A yellow Art Deco pattern added color and style. Repeating that pattern on the other items in the wedding suite tied everything together visually. A letterpress invitation panel added the over-the-top feeling of Art Deco style. Name tags tied to antique keys took the place of typical place cards for an extra special, romantic touch.

Congratulations Lauren & Bradley!

An Elegant Wedding in Blue and White

An elegant wedding venue here in Durham is The Cotton Room, and if you’ve ever seen it you know why. Its industrial style architecture with floor-to-ceiling windows and exposed brick makes for a picture-perfect scene. We always love seeing the photos for weddings at The Cotton Room, as they feel so classic.

Elegant Wedding in Blue and White Details

For Durham locals Rachel and Michael, our popular Durham-skyline design was their choice.  Bringing in the local flavor was key, especially with such a historic venue.  The tonal blue and white colors offered a nod to North Carolina tradition, and pops of purple kept things modern.  Handwritten elements brought an elegant, classic touch, while adding a personalized feeling.

Congratulations Rachel & Michael!

A Simple Modern Typographic Wedding

A Simple Modern Typographic Wedding

Leah and Reid, who wed at The Cotton Room here in Durham, came to us with some great design concepts.  They had a great sense of humor, and they wanted to create a wedding with a strong graphic identity.  They envisioned a simple modern typographic wedding with playful elements, and we loved bringing that to life.

Simple Modern Typographic Wedding Details

For Leah and Reid’s design we created a simple, modern invitation suite with an emphasis on typography.  Letterpressing the invite for a clean and luxe feel, their suite featured a charcoal pocketcard accented with metallic pearl.  It was important to include their sense of humour, showcased by footnotes with nods to their shared history or inside jokes.  The footnotes were also a nod to Reid’s career as a professor of philosophy and academic writing.  A custom monogram was repeated on the cake and other elements of their design.  A large seating chart replaced table numbers for a bold decor statement.  Another playful touch was the puzzle pieces for guests to sign, rather than the traditional guest book.

Congratulations Leah and Reid!
