May’s Projects

A big big month for wrapping up large projects, plenty of returning clients looking for us to add to their save the date and invitation designs with wedding day items; menus and programs. It’s thrilling seeing all of the planning, research, drawing and design come together in the form of invites, info cards, table numbers, program fans, anything imaginable and shipping them off to be enjoyed by our clients and their loved ones.

Although this month included lot of tying up loose ends, we’ll begin with the projects we’ve just begun.

Los Angelos, Hollywood map illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition
Full of palms, sun, and fun, Kate and Matt are having a low-key L.A. wedding. We sprinkled classic 80's neon amongst their casual Cali summer party aesthetic.

May 2016 Blog Post. Tropical island wedding invitation illustrated by Elizabeth Graeber for Jolly Edition.
If you're lucky enough to be invited to a destination Caribbean wedding the least you can expect is a save the date showing off the island paradise. The cool blue, leafy green design makes us want to sip from a coconut under a shady tree. Illustration by Elizabeth Graeber.
May 2016 Blog Post. Michigan harbor wedding invitation illustrated by Sarah Andreacchio for Jolly Edition.
Michigan might not be the Caribbean but we're just as excited to show off its beautiful waterways, the Frankfort lighthouse, Margie & Jeffrey's dog, and deco elements adorning the front cover of their gate-fold invitation, map and RSVP. We love the palette of blush, periwinkle, cobalt and marigold — we don't see it often enough, but it's a really fantastic combination. Illustrated by Sarah Andreacchio.
May 2016 Blog Post. Fashion inspired portrait wedding invitation illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition.
Laura and Jeff, a cool couple interested in irreverent modern art and fashion, wanted a simple, casual and considered design. It was a lot of fun to make a painting so loose, bold, and confident.
May 2016 Blog Post. Modern art, Boston / Baltimore wedding invitation. illustrated by Ana Petrak for Jolly Edition.
After designing their save the dates back in January we got to work with Casey & Susanna again this month. They're a charming couple with modern art tastes mixed with a penchant for those cute, kitschy kitkat clocks. Illustration by Ana Petrak.
May 2016 Blog Post. garden inspired custom wedding invitation illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition.
It feels like we only just finished their save the date — time flies — but Sam and Enrique's invitation, RSVP, rehearsal invitation, and rehearsal RSVP flew out the door this month. The tone of our work shifted from save the date to invitations to allow for a more traditional look that's focused on the beauty and importance of their grandparent's garden, where they'll be exchanging their ‘I do's.’
May 2016 Blog Post. Adirondack inspired wedding invitation illustrated by Katie Harnett for Jolly Edition. Custom fold-out map of the Catskills.
We finished Melanie and Leah's project, after delivering their save the date last winter, with this unique tri-fold invitation, featuring a three-page map of the beautiful Adirondacks. Folding into itself — guests's addresses on the front — the invitation is secured with a separate sticker, ready to mail, no envelopes necessary. Illustration by Katie Harnett.
May 2016 Blog Post. San MIguel wedding table numbers, map and menus. illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition.
Our third wave of design for Kelli and Dan's big colorful, San Miguel celebration. Kelli and Dan's trust in our exploration has been limitless; the save the date was digital illustration (starting last October!), to laser-cut invitations, and now with their hand painted wedding day designs including table numbers and a custom map for their guests.
May 2016 Blog Post. San MIguel map. illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition.
Detail from buildings included in Kelli and Dan's San Miguel map. Featuring El Méson Hotel, Parroquia San MIguel Arcangel, Rosewood, and Casa Hyder.
May 2016 Blog Post. The Green Building, Brooklyn custom wedding invitation. illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition.
We shared a peek from Shira and Neil's design in March's blog post, but we couldn't resist showing off the finished, printed pieces. We've had plenty of great projects lately but Shira and Neil's is amongst our personal favorites; we love the aesthetic and the execution.
May 2016 Blog Post. The Lichterman Center, Tennessee custom wedding invitations and program fan with illustrated timeline. illustrated by Laura Shema for Jolly Edition.
Another follow up from March's blog post, Abbi and Thom's finished, printed pieces, including their program fan, complete their project. The personality of their project, sweet, soft, florals, made this a thrill to add to.

Yet another project we're dipping back into, here's Lindsay and Jason's finished invitation, announcement, and RSVP, channelling Harold and Maude. Illustration by Elizabeth Graeber.
May 2016 Blog Posts - teal painting. illustrated by Laura Shema for @Jolly Edition
Lauren and Tabatha's printed invitations. We love the colors and the spirit of this design, including oil painted illustration and hand lettering. Fun and fanciful; right up our alley.
May 2016 Blog Post - new york tropical invitations illustrated by Laura Shema for @Jolly Edition
Kortni and Andrew are the sophisticated New Yorkers we mentioned in last month's blog post, and here we have the final printed designs, including an invitation, RSVP and travel guide for their guests. Their imagery is bright and tropical, purposefully juxtaposed with industrial typography for their elegant Brooklyn celebration.
