Studio 6XI was the co-sponsor along with Creative Events and Rentals at the 2010 Tropical Florida Bridal Fair at the Edison Ford Winter Estates. Our reception design was a play on vintage elegance, with a modern twist. The Edison Ford Winter Estates displays a beautiful grounds with gardens, Edison and Ford’s original homes, towering palms and twisted fig trees. A perfect setting for a modern bride with a vintage flare. We thank all of the vendors for their participation of our design, including Libby’s Flowers for the floral arrangements, Connie Duglin for the colorful linens, Mason’s Bakery for the cake design, and Creative Events & Rentals for the beautifully draped tent filled with gold chiavari chairs and tables. This Event was a wonderful success bringing in over 100 brides!
This storyboard shows a custom wedding design that I did for my own wedding. I had warm fuchsias and hot tangerine orange as my colors against a sunset beach, so I brought that feel to life with the save-the-date. I then continued the design using a floral logo that continues on all pieces from the formal invite that slides into a fuchsia die-cut sleeve found on MyGatasby and RSVP card all the way to the thank you cards and stamps I had printed on Zazzle.
I have been a graphic designer for going on 11 years and haven’t found more joy than designing custom graphics for weddings and events. Business cards get tossed and put in pockets to get crushed, but a beautiful wedding invitation is carefully placed in a scrapbook to cherish. Along with all of the memories you have with each personalized touch.
Calleen and I were excited to get our first Quinceanera Celebration!!! We could have such fun with the graphics, favors, and over all design of the event. Shown in this storyboard is the fun fan program we did for the church ceremony. Knowing how hot the church got, it was a perfect match to let the guest know what was going on in the ceremony and keeping cool. Believe it or not, we got a donation of stir sticks from Sherwin Williams Paints for the handle on the fan program. All we had to do is paint them gold; we try to find a use for everything around us.
Our Quince Princess, Nydia, wanted a very showy theme using mainly gold and green. And nothing is more dramatic than the peacock flashing its feathers. We took the theme from printing peacock feathers on metallic paper for the invites to using real peacock feathers in our decorating. The RSVP card was an admission ticket. Since this celebration had 150 plus guests, we wanted to make sure everyone was accounted for and taken care of. This elegant, yet festive party was beyond her dreams and made the princess feel so grown up.
Natural Love – Wedding Invitations & Favors
The invitation had a custom designed birds nest with eggs, symbolizing the building of a new life together. The wording was printed on vellum and laced with a ribbon, topped with a fabric brad. Little details like that, found in scrap booking, is an inexpensive way to embellish your stationary. The RSVP also coordinated with the design adding unity to the ensemble.
The seed packets were actually a Target find that we just couldn’t pass up. They went perfectly with the design and were a huge hit with the guests.
Studio 6XI brings a natural, but eccentric look to stationary and graphics. We re-use items around us, like old buttons, scraps of wallpaper and grass cloth, left-over paper, and fabric; just to name a few. Our goal is to create a sustainable line of stationary that everyone can use. Using recycled and FSC certified papers, low VOC and vegetable dye inks, incorporating with letterpress and printing press vendors that are LEED certified or run their business using Green Power.
All of the experience we have gained from corporate projects in the past and now personal celebrations has inspired us to create Fresh Pulp, Sustainable Stationary & Papers. Please stay tuned for launch of our delicious array of paper products and favors.
Ok, I am absolutley smitten with this Bride and Groom (Jill and Kevin Heinz) of St. Paul Minnesota . Jill loves to dance and choreographed this funky number that had her bridal party dancing their way up to the altar. You have to watch this it makes me smile everytime I see it. What an awesome way to get the party started early and what an adorable couple!
