Kelsey and Andrew wanted something classic and simple that referenced the beauty of the historic old city Philadelphia Christ Church where they married. This invitation suite is fully hand drawn, and printed with black ink on ivory paper.
For the escort cards, Kelsey had the creative idea to use a large vintage frame. We pinned the cards on twine with the tiniest wooden clothes pins to create a look that echoed the charm of the location.
One of my favorite wedding items is the escort card. Every guest's name is carefully handwritten on a little card with their table. But escort cards also say, "You are important to us, we are so happy to share this day with you, you are our tribe and we love you." And escort cards are the perfect little takeaway, a small reminder of a special moment with family and friends.
Here is a collection of escort cards in all different colors and styles.
Black & white: sometimes the simplest materials are the best.
A Wedding at The Mount
Escort and place cards, in pea pod green ink on ivory paper, in a writing style I call GRASS.
This beautiful wedding was at The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, Massachusetts.
Kraft Paper Wedding
A complete custom invitation set, escort cards and table numbers, in ivory, latte, and kraft.
Personalized menus, tied with ribbon indicating dinner choice. Escort cards and table names in lavender ink on ivory paper.
The Wolf Wedding
Table numbers in gold on white, and a seating chart on the mirror at Studio 450 in New York City.
Baby Announcement for Twins
I had the honor of making a celestial themed baby announcement for a beautiful set of twins. Photos of that announcement coming soon... I also made a watercolor painting for the babies' room, featuring a star map from their birth month.
Studio 450 Mirror
Studio 450 in Manhattan is a beautiful event venue with a large mirror. I love when I get to write the wedding table assignments, or members of the bridal party on the mirror. It welcomes guests as they arrive.
