Chantal and Dave tied the knot on Saturday – hooray!

I've been working on custom-designed pieces for their wedding all year, and now that they're married it won't spoil any surprises to show you some of their stationery here.

Chantal chose peonies as the inspiration for her entire wedding stationery suite, with her wedding theme colours of fushcia, navy and lime.

The picture above shows the wedding invitation and RSVP card... they were enclosed in navy folders along with menu selection cards and direction cards. Here is the menu...

It's so long that I didn't manage to fit the end with all the cakes in the photo!

Above – the escort cards... and here's the wedding program...

... the peony design extends on to the back cover, and the text inside is navy. And here's the sign for the groom's chair:

(There was also a Bride sign, which was much more ornate!) The sign below invited guests to write down their best advice for the newlyweds on small notecards...

The table numbers (below) were framed ...

...and Chantal had a brilliant idea for a "Vice And Nice" table, with cognac, cigars and chocolates. The sign below was framed and placed on the table.

There were Welcome stickers and Thank You stickers (I don't have pictures of those) as well as these little notes for the welcome baskets...

...and finally, the brunch invitations!

Hopefully when Chantal gets back to D.C., we can show you some pictures from the big day...



  1. Those are so cute! I just love how each design flows with the next, different but still similar! Great set, Helen.

  2. Wow! That is really, really gorgeous.

  3. Beautiful!! And I just got married last weekend too!

  4. Beautiful Helen, love the colour scheme and attention to details from both you and the bride!

  5. So beautiful, great work Helen.
