Megan and Nate have finally said their “I Dos” and that means I can finally showcase their classy but casual custom wedding stationery for their wedding in Washington PA!
When I met Megan for the first time, we chatted for what felt like forever (in a good way!) We bonded over coffee (well she had a refresher, technically) and I really got to understand her vision for the wedding. (Although Nate wasn’t there I am sure it was “his” vision too! 😉) She talked about how she was really trying to balance her and Nate’s casual lifestyle with the (mostly) traditional wedding vibe she wanted. But ultimately, all she really wanted was for someone to come in and “do all the nitty-gritty stuff.” So I swooped in and saved the stationery day!
Their Custom Design Proposal…
Just like all my couples, Megan and Nate go to choose from three different custom stationery suites before selecting their final design. Here is a look at the designs they didn’t choose (which were still beautiful just not their favorite!)
At Megan’s consult, we had chatted about what type of typography Megan liked most. I suggested using a mix of printed and cursive/flowy fonts for depth but ultimately, Megan wasn’t really sure. So in this suite, I used just calligraphy and as you can see it looks a little to busy for the casual but classy vibe Megan was trying to achieve.
Another difference between this suite and the final design is the vertical RSVP (which is a favorite of mine!)
Opposite of the last suite, this one was showcasing an all san-serif font. You couln’t get more different! I used this style font because I was trying to bring in some elements of Megan and Nate’s Reception Venue, The George Washington Hotel. It is a beautiful historic building built in the 1920s with a star-studded past. But this was a little too casual.
Their custom stationery design…
Just like in the three little bears there is always a suite which is just right, and here is Megan and Nate’s custom stationery.
The final design featured Navy Envelopes, Shimmery (almost color changing) paper, and oil-painted flowers. The typography was a mix of calligraphy with serif-fonts that gave just the right mix of classy and casual.
After all the “I dos” were said I chatted with Megan about our journey, and I was brought to (happy) tears with her response. Because this is why I love what I do!
“Once I met you – I knew we would work so well together! You gave me something absolutely perfect! I had no idea what I really wanted but you nailed the design! It was so easy!!! I gave you some color schemes and chose some papers and you made it happen! It was one part of the wedding I had ZERO stress about! Everything was absolutely perfect!
You were amazing to work with and I honestly couldn’t have picked a better person to do my invites, seating chart, programs, etc!
Thank you!!” – Megan
