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.
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!

Those of you who have been following our Twitter and Facebook feeds will know that we have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Saturday, January 8th, for several weeks now. This was the day when our first couple of 2011, Meredith and Jake, got to stand in front of their closest family and friends and declare their love for one another beneath the beautiful dome of the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel. We always get a bit giddy whenever a client's wedding date rolls around, but this day was particularly special as it marked both the start of an exciting journey together for Meredith and Jake, as well as the close of a successful first chapter in our new relationship with the DC Chapter of Wish Upon A Wedding.
Wish Upon A Wedding is a national non-profit organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other difficult life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples in these situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources to plan a wedding, so Wish Upon a Wedding gathers a network of "wish granter" vendors who donate their time and materials to transform the couple's wedding wishes into reality. We were thrilled and honored when we were notified in November that LilyPad Weddings had been selected to design and provide the invitations and wedding stationery for Meredith and Jake, and being a part of the team that pulled this wedding together in less than 6 weeks was an exhilarating experience.
We have lots more details from the big day we can't wait to share soon, including more of Meredith and Jake's story and stunning images from the talented Danielle Cover Photography, but for now we will leave you with a sneak peek at Meredith and Jake's invitation design as well as our thanks to Wish Upon A Wedding for letting us be a part of this incredible experience!
The Round Rock was designed for a wedding in October. We loved how it turned out and are eager for the bride to see the finished product.
We are adding designs as quickly as possible to fill our website with wonderful samples or our invitations! Be sure to check back often to see what we’ve added.
LilyPad Weddings is happy to announce that we are working on a fresh new look for our website. We still have a lot of information to update, but the basic site is live. One of our newest features is this blog. This is a learning experience, but we hope to master the art of blogging!
Stay tuned for more information!
