The Beekman, NYC Custom Wedding Invitations for a Luxury Destination

Sunday, July 30, 2017

“Featured in “The Knot Weddings Magazine”

It’s always a pleasure for us to have clients return to us to help bring the vision of the bride to life with paper, ink and a little something extra.  This is the second time we assisted this busy mom for custom wedding invitations and we thank her for placing her trust in us.  We wish this couple many great years ahead and plenty of grandchildren to fulfill the life of one of favorite mothers of two special daughters.

We dare not take all the credit for these invitations because to truly deliver a bride’s vision, you have to have many people involved.  (When we get more information about the artist who penned these, we’ll update our post).

Our first meeting with the bride took place over the phone where we learned more about her taste and of course her venue.  This was one of the first wedding receptions held at The Beekman, a Thompson Hotel.

Architectural Digest called it a transformation of a 19th Century Tower that was, “Transformed Into New York’s Most Beautiful New Hotel”.  If you are going to have a luxury wedding this property should be a the top of the list.

The bride and groom were married at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, located at 22 Barclay Street-New York, NY 10007.  We’re told that the ceremony was meant for such a historic Church.

A few months after the ceremony I penned a little thank you note to the mom for trusting us again to deliver.  A few weeks later she wrote, “Thanks for all your help in making it a perfect day for them.”  Your so welcome and remember that we also design and make custom baby shower announcements ; ).

And now for the custom New York, NY invitations for the wedding event of the season.  It’s eye candy of a joint effort to bring together this luxury wedding invitation set.  It’s a set of stacked cards with rounded corners and a shimmer gold paint.  The bride wanted us to use one of her favorite antique flower images in someway, so is there not only something special holding it all together-the back has it too.

Again, many thanks to all who have participated in bringing the wedding invitations to life.  If you are going to share our content, we only ask that you give @DigbyRose proper photo credit.  More to come with our creative commons license.

We didn’t even realize that these were going into print in The Knot Weddings Magazine and would like to thank them for including us at the request of the bride.  Best Wishes, Team Digby & Rose

Hydrangea Wedding Invitations

These blue and gold foil hydrangea wedding invitations were the perfect announcement for a summer wedding in Washington, DC! The hydrangeas were pressed with a blind emboss on thick light blue cotton paper, and the text was shiny beauty with a gold foil stamp. The gold print continued on the reply card and other pieces, making for a fully blue and gold stunner for this DC wedding. Everyone who received this invite knew it would be an elegant affair!

Powder Blue Paper and Gold Foil

How we love that thick 222lb cotton paper is now available in light blue, navy, and gray! It is perfect for the letterpress printing that created the light blue hydrangeas on the invitations. One of the prettiest summer flowers, hydrangeas now come in gold! The matching cards were also done on powder blue paper. This set would look great with a matching gold envelope liner.

Letterpress Confetti Wedding Invitations

These confetti wedding invitations are a fun but elegant way to announce your upcoming wedding! This letterpress print in navy and green is accented by an apple green envelope liner for a great additional pop of color. A traditional script and text font keep this modern invitation looking formal. For this wedding at Meridian House in Washington, DC it was a great way to let everyone know it was going to be fun, but be sure to dress up! The 2 color letterpress print on 110lb cotton paper was paired with a 1 color reply card and invitation card in navy ink.

Linden Leaves Invitations

For this confetti design we used the delicate heart shape of the linden leaf, so if you look closely the confetti is really a splash of tiny hearts! A great subtle way to bring in a heart theme to your invitations without going overboard, especially with great colors of navy and green for a fall wedding.
