Real Wedding: Erica + Anthony

Erica and Anthony's Ashford Estate wedding with stationery by April Lynn Designs |

It’s Wedding Wednesday, and there’s no better way to kick off the day than with a real wedding! As a stationery designer, so much of my work with the couple happens before their wedding day. We talk about their venue, I know their color palette, and I can envision the details that will be purposefully […]

Real Wedding: Erica + Dan


The best way to begin a Tuesday is with a celebration, so I thought today would be the perfect day to share Erica and Dan’s wedding with you! You may remember E+D from their wedding invitations, which featured a stunning illustration by Arnaud Faugas complete with flowers, the Philadelphia skyline, and the Liberty Bell. With […]

Real Wedding: Kelsey + Jason


A wedding is already a celebration, but when you add in New Year’s Eve to the equation, the party quickly escalates to EPIC. That’s exactly how I felt while I was designing Kelsey and Jason’s day of wedding stationery. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I adore Tonia […]

Real Wedding: Amanda + James


Amanda and Jim knew from the start that art deco would largely inspire each and every choice they made for their wedding day, so their invitation suite was filled with black, white, and gold details. I especially loved their modern monogram, and it’s safe to say I will never say no to gold foil!   Just […]

Real Wedding: Liz + Rob


I started working together with Liz and Rob when they were prepping to send their save the dates for their stunning November 14, 2015 wedding. I love when couples choose to incorporate photos because they’re such a fun way to offer guests a truly personalized peek into what’s to come. Next, we drew inspiration from […]

Farm To Table Hipster Wedding Styled Shoot featured on Wedding Chicks


While planning your wedding, one of the first steps is to decide on your wedding style. From dresses to stationery, flowers to venues, that single detail will guide nearly every step that follows. And if your style is farm to table meets hipster (or farm to table meets color!), you have come to the right […]

The Importance of Custom Day of Wedding Stationery


For many couples, a save the date is the very first piece of wedding stationery they think to send and design. You want to announce your upcoming wedding date while also announcing that you’re engaged (perhaps with a photo!). Next, your mind wanders to wedding invitations. This is the most formal piece of stationery for […]

Real Wedding: Sarah + Travis


I first began working with Sarah and Travis while designing their save-the-dates. They incorporated a beautiful black and white photo taken at the beach onto the front. The wording from their piece – “You’ve got plans!” – will forever standout as such as fun way to hint that guests should keep their calendars clear. Next, […]
