Philadelphia Skyline Wedding Invitations

Jackie wanted a very clean but detailed skyline of Philadelphia.  I designed the tops of the three buildings: One Liberty Place, Two Liberty Place and City Hall. The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts was the perfect reception venue for this wedding, as it was brightly colored with yellows, oranges and purples and had a very art deco feel.

DC Skyline Wedding Invitations

I did a Washington DC skyline invitation set in the past, and this has since become one of our most requested designs!  I was thrilled when Jessica wanted to customize the skyline.  I designed the invitations with a custom sketch of the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument.  I loved the blue, sketched look with the mixed font looks on each piece!  Jessica and Christopher got married at the Dahlgren Chapel in Washington, DC, and it was absolutely beautiful!

Detroit Skyline Wedding Invitations

Ashley’s wedding invitations are the first that I have designed with a Detroit skyline!  This is surprising since I have lived here all of my life and I have been designing invitations for almost 10 years.

Ashley wanted a very vintage, info graphic style invitation with the popular mint and gold combination.  Gold Glitter cardstock accented the gold foil printing of the invitation.  The Detroit skyline adorned the wrap around sash and custom postage. Then, instead of menus, we did an itinerary in the infographic style in mint and black.

Chandelier Wedding Invitation Suite

Lisa contacted me after she found a chandelier wedding invitation that I had designed in the past.  Although I love to design new invitations, sometimes an invitation I have already designed just speaks to a bride.  We changed the colors for her suite and I designed a seating chart, programs and menus, all with the chandelier.dean michaels studio 0029dean michaels studio 0030dean michaels studio 0002_0257dean michaels studio 0038dean michaels studio 0010_1351dean michaels studio 0016_1519 dean michaels studio 0017_1596dean michaels studio 1871dean michaels studio 1875dean michaels studio 0020_2775

Coral and Blue Chevron Wedding Stationery

Chevron was the hot print in 2013.  These rehearsal dinner invitations were designed with coral chevron, sea blue accents and a burlap strip with a die cut monogram seal.  Napkin wrap menus with the coral chevron were the perfect casual but elegant item for the table settings.Gourmet-Invitations-Coral-Blue-Wedding-Stationary-1

Washington DC Wedding Invitations

Lorena’s Washington D.C. Wedding Invitations were very elegant and a little whimsical too.  The envelope liners were antiqued treated vintage maps of the DC area.  Gold Glitter invitations were the perfect match to the gold foil border accents.  Antique Gold envelopes with accents and Washington DC custom stamps completed the elegant packaging.Gourmet-Invitations-Gold-Wedding-Invitations-1 Gourmet-Invitations-Gold-Wedding-Invitations-3 Gourmet-Invitations-Gold-Wedding-Invitations-2 Gourmet-Invitations-Gold-Wedding-Invitations-4

Duck Wedding Invitations

We had a blast designing this unique hunting-themed invitation set for a Mississippi wedding at the Bailey Break Hunting Club! The hunter green and yellow matched the natural feel of the venue and theme.  Duck Dynasty is so popular and wedding invitations with the duck theme have become just as popular.  The envelopes were designed with the couples golden retriever on the back.
