Allison & Christopher's Sailing Inspired Wedding Stationery

Allison and Christopher's wedding stationery was nautical themed from front to back, start to finish. Their save the date was simple with a classic play off of a knot as part of the copy to keep it light and casual. And lastly the design was topped off with a simple line drawing of an anchor because some times you can't do a nautical theme without one.

As we moved on to their wedding invitation suite, we classed it up some to play with the importance of the event but ultimately kept it—what I like to call—sophisticated playful. I used swirling waves and a sailboat as the main illustration element which was then used on other pieces including their programs and escort cards.

To complete the suite, the invites were bundled together with a natural string and a monogrammed tag. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to do a triangle as it brought together the sail and flag shapes that were being created on the invite and the RSVP card.

Allison and Christopher were clients that knew exactly what they wanted. It was clear and direct making it easy to create a suite that fit their needs for their big day. I am so thankful they included my designs and art into such a special event in their lives.


Brittany worked with us over a period of almost nine months as she prepped numerous pieces of our wedding stationery. She worked with us to design a beautiful save the date, invitation (and reply card), cover art for our wedding ceremony bulletin, as well as escort cards for our reception. Through each step in the process she was quick with responses and always professional. We had many guests compliment us on our stationery throughout the entire process. We were more than happy to tell them where the items had come from and how much we loved working with Brittany. Everything arrived to us in a timely manner, despite her being in London and us being in Cambridge, MA. We began ordering cards from Brittany a couple years ago, and working with her for our wedding seemed only logical. Her prices were extremely reasonable and her knowledge of paper products (envelopes, string, paper weight, etc.) was evident every step of the way. We only wish that we had other large events coming up that necessitated stationery so that we could work with her again. We also have admired the work that she has done for other couples that we know, and we will be sure to recommend her to friends getting married in the future.
