While we love our bright colors here at MaeMae & Co., we’re equally into creating punchy stationery via interesting graphics, layering and texture. Last year, Sherrylyn and Daylan came to us seeking wedding stationery that would match their refined, but playful vision for their Hawaiian wedding. Blending inspiration from vintage island ephemera with cheeky wording, a black and white color palette and various print methods (one-color letterpress, blind letterpress, engraving and digital) – all resulted in a suite that was classic, fun and perfect for a Hawaiian celebration. Be sure to check out some more detail shots of Sherrylyn and Daylan’s full stationery suite in our custom wedding portfolio.

Fun fact: when our couples have refined invitations, it’s fun to be a bit more bold with other stationery pieces – like we did with Sherrylyn and Daylan’s luggage tag save the dates!

We always love working on custom reception stationery – there’s so much opportunity to incorporate quirky and unique details into each piece – and that’s what happened in an EPIC way with Jennifer and Joshua’s day-of stationery. As a die-hard Star Wars enthusiast, Jennifer had the genius idea of integrating her fandom throughout the wedding to create tons of fun, personalized touches. The result? (literal) Stormtrooper escorts, Death Star coasters and hints of Star Wars in the music, programs, table names and signage. Thank you, Jennifer and Joshua for asking us to create the reception stationery, and congratulations on your alliance ;)

Jennifer and Joshua’s wedding was recently featured on Green Wedding Shoes – check out the post for a run-down of all the details and vendors.

Meet Charles, our English Rose. He’s elegant, understated and forever lovely. Charles is heavily inspired by The Secret Garden—but his floral elements are grounded by a graphic illustration style and clean typography choices. We love that Charles is simultaneously vintage and contemporary—a perfect choice the the most timeless of celebrations.

Charles can be a produced in so many ways. We’re showing him in a tone-on-tone peachy hued letterpress printed on our creamiest white paper (ecru). To keep things from feeling too sweet, we added some unexpected details: shiny foil edge painting and a metallic wax seal.

Here’s a few other ways we think Charles will be cool:

1) Go woodsy— forest green ink and kraft paper envelopes.

2) White engraving on navy paper

3) Florescent white paper with blind embossing on the floral graphics and pale gray text

This custom suite was designed for the awesome couple, Jillian and Hosain, who were married last fall. With a killer sense of design and appreciation for paper goods, Jillian was a complete dream to work with (and props to Hosain for rolling with the all-pink invitations!). The images above were shot by Canary Grey, and the below photos are from the wedding, shot by Dawn E. Roscoe.




For even more beautiful photos of the special day, check out Jillian’s blog, Cornflake Dreams and 100 Layer Cake‘s feature of the suite!

My sweet friend Molly married her best friend Zack in June and I had the pleasure of working on some stationery for her and celebrating the big day with her back home in Arizona. I met Molly in high school, got to know her better on a trip to Africa, and spent every Sunday one semester in college going to church and then eating Wahoo’s Fish + Taco’s on the beach together. Every time we ordered at Whaoo’s they would ask our name but spell it very oddly on our boxes. One day I was “Migon” and she was “Mealy.” Who knew our names were so hard to spell! How amazing is the seating chart on that chalkboard?? Created by my bestie Whit. Check out her blog Her White Sunrise
here. I am so happy for you two, Molly + Zach!! All the beautiful photos are by the talented sister pair
About Love Studio.

I am OBSESSED with die cut stationery right now. I love how it adds another layer of interest and sophistication. This is a wedding suite that I created for a
Style Me Pretty photo shoot. Berry tones!
