Congratulations, Kari and Derek!

This Saturday, we had our first wedding in charming Alexandria, Virginia. Kari and Derek were married at Aldersgate Methodist Church with a super modern and elegant reception to follow at Hotel Monaco (love those Kimpton hotels!). Kari and Derek chose our Round Rock as the inspiration for their invitation suite and day-of wedding stationery, and we carried elements of the design throughout their invitations, programs, table numbers, menu cards, and seating chart. We customized the colors to reflect their color palette of red and grey, and designed a new monogram. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Sorensen! We loved working with you!

Introducing... The Rockville

Now that the 2011 wedding invitation season is well underway, it has been fun witnessing the evolution of this year's trends. At the top of our list? Grey as the new neutral. We've previously paired it with red, pale blue, and cream, but this bright and sunny yellow is our new favorite. So, without further ado, we present our newest design, the Rockville. Preppy pinstripes, fun florals, and lots of thoughtful and unexpected details- what's not to love? To learn more about the Rockville, click here.

A Breath of Fresh Air, Michelle Lindsay Style

Yesterday's sunny weather and warm temps gave us our first brief taste of spring, and today we make that feeling last just a bit longer with the breath of fresh air that is Michelle Lindsay Photography. Here at LilyPad, we have been huge fans of Michelle's artistic and editorial style for a long time, so you can imagine our delight when we decided to give our website a facelift with some new images and Michelle was available for the project. We were thrilled the results and couldn't wait to share some of our favorite photos with you! Michelle's work has been featured in Washingtonian Bride & Groom, The Knot, Brides Washington DC, and Get Married, as well as on one of our favorite local wedding blogs, United with Love. She was also recently selected by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) as one of the top 10 up and coming studios in the U.S!

Her fresh, modern, and vibrant photos speak for themselves, and on top of that, she is one of the most humble and laid-back people we've met.

Thank you, Michelle!

Be sure to check out our Invitation Gallery for more fresh air and a dose of design inspiration.

Real Wedding: Meredith + Jake

Today we're back with the second part of our post on Meredith and Jake's wedding, and while we were excited to reveal the design for their invitations in our first post, we're even more excited to share these stunning images of the day as captured by the talented Danielle Cover Photography! This also marks the debut of our new Real Weddings gallery, where we will be bringing you creative details from real LilyPad weddings to help inspire and delight. Meredith and Jake wanted their wedding to feel like a winter wonderland, so we created an intricate and lacy pattern of snowflakes in all different shades of icy blue that we carried throughout their custom invitations, table signs, place cards, and programs. They met at their church and share a strong religious faith, so rather than using conventional table numbers, they decided to seat their guests at tables named after the various virtues and qualities that they hope to carry into their marriage.

We were so inspired by the Meredith and Jake's love story, and by our first (but not last) experience with Wish Upon A Wedding! For more images from their big day and a list of the people who made it happen, please visit their wedding gallery. Happy married life, Mr. and Mrs. Peterson, and we wish Jake a safe deployment and a speedy return!
