This weekend I had the honor to not only stand up in this gorgeous wedding, but also do all of the stationary for it. Alicia and I have been friends since first grade and I have always wished for a man to steal her heart and love her the way that Mike does. This wedding was filled with SO much love, family and friendship. I had so much fun planning and celebrating with these two amazing people. Cheers to a lifetime of happiness for the new Mr. And Mrs. Dobosz!
This summer wedding was so fun to do! I worked closely with Cara and her Mom to come up with a classic yet elegant design. This simple pocket style invitation is in a textured cream color. Tied together with a beautiful lace band and monogrammed pine green paper. Cara chose an elegant shade of metallic blush for her accent color. As an added surprise for the groom, Cara used NBA player names in place of table numbers.
For this destination wedding in the Dominican Republic Catherine chose to have a simple invitation with a tropical feel. The paper in Fiji blue and brite white does just that! The band which wraps the pieces together is made of a super fine paper with a hint of gold running through it. To complete the look she chose a red envelope giving it just the pop it needs.
I've been reminiscing all week about our trip to Ireland last year. My husband Joe and I were fortunate enough to spend an entire week traveling the country with our two friends Mary and David. It was beautiful, green, and filled with the friendliest, warm, and outgoing people I've ever met. We visited many places from the cliffs of Moher, the city of Galway, and the Dingle Peninsula, just to name a few. One of my favorite memories of the trip was the visit we made to Joe's family near Ballyneety. We toured the farm, fed and milked the cows, and shared family stories. As the trip came to a close we celebrated St. Patrick's Day on the streets of Dublin. Sláinte!
Simple elegance for this fall wedding done in all metallic paper. Navy and white is a classic choice of color tied together with a laser cut Celtic knot.
I enjoyed working with this amazing couple. Their invitations were done in an offset metallic silver and black print. They are tied together with a silver satin ribbon in a black on black pinstripe tuxedo folder. Check out their review on my knot page. https://www.theknot.com/marketplace/rachel-lizabeth-designs-lombard-il-416485
Happy wedding day to Kendall and Jason!
I absolutely loved working with Jessica on her wedding and shower invitations. Her wedding invites were printed on crystal paper and put in a metallic grey pocket giving them a simple but elegant look. We went a little bolder for her shower invitations that were inspired by a vintage Disney theme. We used gold, pink and crystal papers and tied them all together with a gold band and Disney castle clasp.
Back in September I was a part of a Bridal Show located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. It was held at the Rivera Pier and we were placed on the beautiful Duchess. It turned out to be a perfect day! A special thanks to my sister who helped me show off my designs.
Here are a couple photos from the event.
Since this is my first entry I thought I would catch you up on what kept me busy over the summer. As I met with my brides I started to notice a trend. Almost half of my brides chose Navy as the main color for their weddings. Here are a few of my favorites!
