Kilkea Castle, located in Co. Kildare Ireland, is one of my favorite venues to design invitations for! This gate fold design was created for Johanna and Will for their upcoming wedding in August. The invitation is printed on our standard smooth cover stock with custom floral printed envelope liners.
These custom Montauk Lighthouse themed wedding invitations, custom created for Claire and Matthew, are elegantly wrapped in a translucent vellum jacket with hand stamped wax seals in antique gold. The suite includes envelope liners printed with a custom designed monogrammed crest.
Jessica and Anthony commissioned us to create these gate fold style invitations adorned with a beautiful view of the Veritas Vineyards on the inside.

We've just finished working on this Ireland map for Bridget & Kyle's Waterford Castle wedding. Watercolor map save the dates have been very popular and I always enjoy working with one of my favorite places. 😊 These save the date cards are printed on bright white 110 lb. textured paper stock.

In this time of social distancing, many people are having to reschedule their events. Many couples are facing that challenge right now as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced restrictions on large gatherings. Some couples have opted to have a private ceremony, and reschedule the formal celebration for a later date, while others have already chosen to reschedule the entire affair for the following year.
If you decide to postpone, here are a few helpful suggestions.
1) Contact your vendors ASAP. This is priority one, since your vendors are the ones doing most of the work. Your venue should be at the top of this list, but you will also need to contact your invitation printers, florists, photographers and DJ’s or musicians.
If you are using a wedding planner, they may be able to assist you in making the task easier by making some of the calls and going over vendor contracts. Your vendors will likely have a policy for cancellation and postponement. There may be additional fees for changing dates, etc.
2) Notify your guests. The easiest and quickest way to get the message out is to send a mass email or text and follow up with a new printed invitation as a formality. If you have a wedding website, you should also be posting any updates ASAP. Below is an example of a message you can send your guests:
Dear Friends and Family:
We have made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will keep you updated regarding our wedding details. We are looking forward to celebrating together.
Love, [Couple Names]
If you have guests that are coming from out of town, they may need to cancel travel and accommodation plans. To help your guests, you can supply them with any contact information they may need for changing or cancelling their reservations.
3) Announce your new date. Once you have decided on your new wedding date, you will want to send a new invitation to your guests. If you have a wedding website, you will want to update that prior to sending your printed invitations.
