Carrie and Josh were married in May of 2016 (Happy Anniversary, guys!) in West Virginia and had a dinner reception at Historic Summit Inn located in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Their wedding was chocked full of gorgeous, rustic details! Paper Hearts Invitations was able to provide so many paper items for their big day and the amount of thought Carrie put into those details turned out beautifully. If you are wondering what services Paper Hearts can provide for you, please read on! You will see everything from a wedding invitation suite, ceremony programs, table numbers, menus, custom stickers for their favors and name cards for their guests. I’ve also included some fun photos of the happy couple and their big day. They are just the sweetest couple and these pictures captured by Jessica Fike Photography make you feel their joy and excitement.
I am a HUGE advocate for details. When all of your wedding stationery matches, your guests WILL notice! Here are 10 stationery items to think about when planning your wedding:
1. Save the Dates
2. Wedding Invitation Suite
3. Rehearsal Dinner Invitations
4. Ceremony Programs
5. Large Signs to welcome guests or display information
6. Name Cards
7. Table Numbers
9. Favor tags or stickers
10. Framed signs for family remembrance, the cookie table, and the guest book
If you have ideas on how you can make your wedding personalized, I’d love to chat! When you plan your wedding day around what you both love to do as a couple, everything will be exciting and effortless. You can incorporate things like hiking, watching movies, traveling, a favorite beer, spending time with your furry friends, your alma matter, a favorite sports team. Some of the best weddings I’ve attending have been because the couple incorporated their personalities into the details and they had fun! It’s that we all want from life and our wedding celebration, to have fun?
Tiffani and Nick’s Pennsylvania Wedding took place in a gorgeous wedding venue located in the Laurel Highlands area of Southwestern Pennsylvania. The Barn at Fallingwater is located next to the famous Frank Lloyd Wright home Fallingwater. These photos were captured by Caitlin’s Living Photography and she truly embraced the details that Tiffani created for her wedding day. Paper Hearts created the wedding invitation suite, menus, thank you tags, escort cards, signs, ceremony programs, and cookie bags.

It was a super cold day (10 degrees!) in early January when Britani Edwards and W Rentals and Events planned this gorgeous winter inspirational styled shoot. The location was in Bridgeport, WV on the Bel Meadow golf course which was covered with a nice layer of snow and frozen water! Our models were perfect for the look and they were such troopers for braving the cold! If you are planning a winter wedding, please read on!
A few weeks ago, Luka and I met up with the amazing Callie Lindsey to take some super cute photos of Luka and #HallieTheHedgie playing in their Honest Company diapers. The Honest Company issued a limited edition print with hedgehogs and I couldn’t resist a photo opportunity. Here’s some photos of our “babies” on their playdate!
When Amberlee from Amberlee Christey Photography contacted me about designing stationery for her romantic Halloween styled shoot, I was super excited! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and it was my first time designing a wedding invitation with that theme.
The shoot took place right here in Morgantown and featured two local models who will be getting married for real next summer. The shoot was featured on Southern Brides (what??!) and I’m still on cloud 9 getting published on their website.
When Britani from Britani Edwards Photography contacted me about designing stationery for her upcoming navy, blush and gold styled shoot, I was super excited! First off, I love styled shoots and second, I love, love, LOVE navy, blush and gold colors together.
This shoot took place in Campy Muffly, WV and was published on Fab You Bliss (click this link to read their post) earlier this month. I woke up one Monday morning to a flood of notifications that we were published and I can see why – the team of vendors did an amazing job pulling everything together and our models nailed it!
After 10 years of being in the graphic design industry, the hardest person to design for is, hands down, MYSELF! I design something for myself and then I completely throw it out the window because I never feel it is good enough. I guess being picky is a blessing and a curse because it pushes me to become a better designer but can also drive me crazy! When I started my journey in 2013 with Paper Hearts, I designed my branding to incorporate two things that I love, hearts and the color pink. Today, I am revealing the new look of Paper Hearts Invitations. It still has the very same heart I started with back then and the color pink, but it matches my design style a little more. Watercolor florals and script fonts are what I love to incorporate for my brides so I wanted to match my branding a little more to my everyday design style. I wanted this logo to be a little more “ME” and I am so excited to share it with you guys!
Let’s take a look back and my previous logos.
And here is the new look for Paper Hearts Invitations! Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Providing stationery for a styled shoot is probably one of my all-time favorite things to do. It allows me to think outside of the box and use materials I normally wouldn’t use for a full invitation order. This Modern Garden styled shoot is a wonderful display of when a great group of vendors work together, the result is bound to be amazing.
So you’re starting to plan your wedding – congrats! With the holidays winding down, we are in the tail end of “engagement season.” All of those pretty pictures of your gal pal’s new diamonds are probably flooding your Facebook feed and you suddenly realize that 2016 is just a few days away and you’re getting married THIS YEAR! (mini freak-out session). You probably still have a million decisions to make, but hopefully this list will help you to be prepared when it is time for us to meet and talk about your wedding invitations!
1. Set a Date
This is a no-brainer. Without a date we can’t really start on a project timeline or narrow down your invitation wording.
2. Pick a Theme and Colors
This is a big one. Of course we can decide on the exact color of blue you want to use at our meeting, but come with a general idea of what your wedding colors are and what theme you plan to use for the event.
3. Set a Budget!
This is probably the most important one. Unless your budget is unlimited, which most bride’s aren’t, set a budget you’d like to stick with. This will help save time and keep your stationery designer on track with what can be done for you.
4. Chose a Hotel for Your Guests
Ok, even if you don’t officially call to book the hotel or necessarily even need one, have an idea about that ahead of time so that we can plan ahead to include that information on your invitation.
5. Meal Choices
Decide if you are having meal choices or a buffet/family style ahead of time. This will help us plan out your RSVP card more efficiently. Even if you aren’t tasting food for another couple of months and don’t have the exact meals narrowed down yet, have a general idea so that we can plan accordingly for space.
6. Know All Names
This may seem like an easy one, but make sure you know how each of your parents wants to be listed on the invitation. If Dad goes by a nickname and rarely uses his given name, ask him what he prefers. If your beau is a Junior, find out if he wants to be listed as such. This will make planning out the flow of the invitation wording much easier.
Hopefully this will help prepare you for our meeting! Don’t forget to contact me AT LEAST four months before your wedding to start on your invitations. I look forward to working with you!
