Real Weddings: Magical Moments at the Ashford Estate

Magical Moments at the Ashford Estate

 

 

We’re in awe of the magnificent details in ToniAnn and Kevin’s wedding at  The Ashford Estate! They were able to weave in terrific details and elements into their design and decor, from the bride’s gorgeous Matthew Christopher gown to the magnificent florals by  MDS Floral. When they came to us, they were looking for a wedding invitation that felt elegant and timeless but also captured a romantic, fairytale feel. Our Monarc Invitation suite looks completely at home amidst the delicate detail. The whole day was captured through the lens of the talented team at Brett Matthews Photography.

Inspiration: Game of Thrones Wedding Invitations

Like many of you, we at Atelier Isabey are huge fans of the acclaimed HBO series Game of Thrones (based on the R.R Martin fantasy novels). From medieval castles, knights and princesses to Dragons, what’s not to love? With the new season kicking off this weekend, we wanted to do a special tribute to this spellbinding series and the unforgettable characters whose paths are intricately woven together to create a truly epic story. As a designer, what I particularly love is how the creative team of the show brought to life every aspect with meticulous attention to detail. Every house, unique culture and land in Game of Thrones has it’s own particular look and feel which is unlike any other.

 

With that in mind, we decided to celebrate the new season by bringing our Atelier Isabey aesthetic and creativity and create five looks that are inspired by some of our favorite Game of Thrones characters and families.

 

We fell in love with Aria and Sansa Stark from episode one so it seems fitting that we start everything off by featuring our “House Stark” design. A dash of gothic, some heraldry and a sprinkle of overgrown vines and this suite totally feels at home in Winterfell!

Daenarys Targaryen is the epitome of a fantasy novel princess. With long platinum locks, a handful of pet dragons and an iron will, she’s the inspiration behind our next look. For this invitation suite, we took reptile textured papers in bordeaux red and paired it with the deepest onyx marbled papers and gold foils for a look that is edgy and as daring as this Targaryen princess.

House Tyrell is one of the great houses of Westeros and is also known as the house of Flowers. There’s something mysterious but undeniably fresh and dazzling about Margaery as well as her family who have been eyeing the throne since they arrived in King’s Landing. Our suite highlights handprinted “Highgarden” flowers in a way that is delicate but powerful all the same.

House Baratheon is one of the most tumultuous houses in the story, having fallen from royalty, confided in a red witch, failed an invasion attempt, etc… When will things start to look up for the Baratheons? The original sigil is one of the stag so we decided to blend that idea of stag horns, with a dark, nearly smoke like feeling that evokes, the enchantment of Melisandre, the red witch. It’s dramatic and bold!

Easily one of the most controversial (and at times villainous) families in the epic drama, the Lannisters are bold, cutthroat and always dressed to impress! We decided to take this regal style and really bring it to life on our invitations with a custom coat of arms with two lions (the house sigil) and a beautiful and very ornate laser cut sleeve that shows just a peek of the crest hidden behind a shield.

Styled Shoot: A Spectacular New York Affair

 

 

Simplicity, elegance and a sparkling flair. These are some of the things that make for a picture perfect wedding shoot and we couldn’t be happier to share this collaboration we did with the talented team at Spectacular Affairs. From a shimmery ceremony decor at Battery Gardens in New York City to elaborate chartreuse cymbidium orchids, everything about this shoot just screams unique and elegant. Don Hwang of Olli Studio was there to capture all the minute details including our bestselling Monarc invitation design, which we accentuated with an ivory laser cut sleeve. This invitation suite is so versatile, it can be made to match so many different looks!

 

Everything in this special shoot was paired to perfection like the seriously romantic dress by Greek designer Victoria Kyriakides and the dazzling jewels by Deborah Pagani. Go ahead and see for yourself why we will never ever tire of this lovely shoot.

Styled Shoot: Gilded at The Plaza

Gilded Wedding Styled Shoot at The Park Plaza

 

 

Styled shoots are always really exciting for us because as creatives, we’re always looking forward to pushing the envelope with new designs and inspiration, and above all partnering with other talent from all over the country. Styled shoots provide us with the opportunity to try different things out and experiment a little bit more than we would if we were working on a real life wedding.  This week’s shoot featured rich, jewel tones paired with gilded details for a dramatic reinterpretation of traditional opulence, and all of it was shot at the legendary Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

 

Orchestrated by non other than the talented celebrity planning team at David Tutera Events, no detail was left unturned, from the gowns by Kenneth Pool and Stephen Yearick, to the dreamy headpieces by Maria Elena. The rich, punchy florals and sparkling tablescapes added yet another layer of complexity to the whole tableau. We were excited to participate by adding some of our most opulent stationery to the tables and decor. Our laser cut Rebecca & Varun couture design proved to be the perfect pairing to the palette of golds and purples that permeated the space.

Enjoy these gorgeous photos!

Tips & Tricks: Multilingual Invitations

Multi-Lingual Invitations

 

As a studio located in the heart of one of the most metropolitan cities in the world, we’re so proud to offer invitations in many languages. We’ve designed invitations in French, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean and Arabic just to name a few! But one question that always comes to the forefront, especially when working with couples from different nationalities and backgrounds is “How do I incorporate both of our languages” (sometimes even three or four!). Today, I’d like to share some of my best tips and tricks for how to approach multilingual invitations in a sophisticated and elegant way. I’ll even show you some examples of how these tips come alive on some of our invitations!

 

So without further ado, here are my three top tips for how to tackle bilingual and multilingual invitations!

Styled Shoot: Vintage Garden Fairytale

Styled Shoot: Vintage Garden Fairytale

 

It’s no surprise that one of the most popular and most requested styles for weddings over the past couple of years has been all things vintage. It lends an elegant and dreamt yet totally effortless feeling which can be adapted to many color schemes, venues and interpretations. This week’s vintage styled shoot has some of the loveliest florals and styling from Rebecca Shepherd Floral Design and we were delighted to have been a part of its creation. Set in a garden that felt like it had been plucked straight out of a Jane Austen book, everything from the table settings to the fashion was visual eye candy.

 

We brought our paper expertise to the table by creating a lush blue and white watercolor invitation suite that evoked vintage lace but with a bit of an unexpected twist. Just like in our Wonders of Watercolor article about watercolor painting, here’s another fresh and creative way of infusing a unique look and feel into an invitation suite without sacrificing elegance and timelessness. We even extended the look to include dangling escort cards and wood veneer table and escort cards!

 

The bride and groom, were dressed in elegant LazaroRebecca Schoneveld, and Louis Purple all of which were captured by talented photographer Jonathan Young. A beautiful pair of Jimmy Choo antique silver/gold pumps finished the look with flair and to top it all off, as the day came to a close, the couple was driven away in a vintage blue Chevrolet. It could not have been more perfect or serendipitous.
