Invitation evolution & inspiration

Jean & Devin's invitation

Many of our designs start as custom commissions created in collaboration with our clients  -- and take on a new life from there!  Our Big Day invitation is a great example -- originally created for bride Jean Weisman, a writer who wrote the invitation copy, the design was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings along with the rest of Jean & Devin's gorgeous wedding (planned by AE Planning & Design). We made a version that could be ordered on our website...


...and adapted a DIY version for our new book, Handmade Weddings...


A bride in Brooklyn loved the design but wanted us to replace the Golden Gate with the Brooklyn Bridge, and put her own unique spin on the text...


... and we created an invitation in a similar style for Bear Flag Farm...


Here's a save the date variation with photos and cute flags!


Today we spotted this design on Brooklyn Bride and this design by Kenzie Kate -- more designs inspired by Big Day?

Regardless, this is a shout-out to all of our awesome, creative clients, who give us the opportunity to create new designs every day!
