Lauren Rava, of Rava Wines, commissioned a custom map of her California winery for use in their corporate materials. The use of watercolor and texture introduces the mood of the beautiful location. Go visit their sparkling winery!
Jolly Edition Blog Post September 2017, Spanish wedding invitation, rsvp and map.
After producing Akemi & Matthew's Andalusian save the date a couple of months back we dipped back into their project to create some energetic, painterly florals with a crest honoring their pup Daisy. The custom wedding invitation and reply card included a separate map of the Southern Spanish region.
Jolly Edition Blog Post September 2017, blue watercolor program and menu
Akemi and Matthew's tongue-in-cheek blue floral Andalusian wedding itinerary on off-white paper. We love how the paper added and changed the quality of the watercolors.
Jolly Edition Blog Post September 2017 upstate New York autumnal wedding stationery
There are few places more beautiful than the Hudson Valley in fall, so natuerall Talia & Russell wanted us to concentrate on the great outdoors for their custom invitation, reply card, and Hudson Valley map.
Jolly Edition Blog Post September 2017 blue succulent wedding stationery
Colleen & Kevin's cool blue wedding custom wedding stationery (invite, reply card, details card, custom liner) is full of succulents and cacti. We made great use of their monogram, which is beautiful and legible at any size.

Two of the few clients we've ever met in person (we also met their dogs, which is a first for us), Gabby & Max were a joy to work with. Their project featured a navy and copper palette and made great use of the autumnal artwork on day of designs — a giant seating chart, place cards, menus, etc. The more we added to their project the more beautiful and cohesive the day became.
Jolly Edition Blog Post September 2017
A sophisticated silver-foil custom crest on off-white paper for Vallery & Jamie's upcoming winter wonderland save the date. It's not easy to see the foil here but believe us, it's there!

Another project revisit, Allie & Jake added to their save the dates and invitations with programs and menus for their big day. These folks know how to choose a menu, so we made cute food illustrations to show off how refined and fancy their palates are.
