It’s A Bride’s Life blogger Stephanie, aka Miss Romantic Bride, posted every detail of her wedding from engagement to I do! She married Dave on September 6th, 2014 at the Independence Seaport Museum on Penn’s Landing. They were high school sweethearts, and their romance is pure Philadelphia. Both of them went to Temple University, Dave proposed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and there were lots of Philadelphia-inspired details sprinkled throughout their wedding. The Philadelphia custom wedding invitations I created for them were one of them!
Stephanie and Dave’s wedding colors were purple, lavender, and silver. Their invitation featured a purple Philadelphia skyline, and another version of it featuring the Ben Franklin Bridge on the accommodations card. There was a Liberty Bell on the reply card, and the map has representations of all the landmarks of Stephanie and Dave’s love. My personal favorite detail was that, instead of the traditional monogram on the bellyband, there was a monogrammed version of the LOVE sculpture.
Stephanie was a great bride to work with. She’s so creative! She copied the custom bellyband monogram that I created onto a stamp template and used it on the return envelopes. Another idea I love: Stephanie used glue gun wax to stamped the “LOVE” symbol onto a seal for the invitation envelopes! I think it really adds to the romantic feel of the invitation, while adding a little extra Philly to it, as well : )
You can see my announcement about working with Stephanie here, and her initial post about my work here. Stephanie posted about receiving her finished invitations here. In this post of hers, you can learn a little bit about her cute and creative ideas and see part of the assembly process. If you’re so inclined, you could also peruse Stephanie’s posts about her wedding day, where you’ll see more of my custom stationery. But for this blog, that’s another post for another day!
Congratulations, Stephanie and Dave!
