Real Weddings Sneak Peek - Jenny & Adam

Here are just a few shots from Jenny and Adam's recent Alaskan wedding....just a glimpse of the totally unique, fun and so, so pretty day that they shared with their closest family and friends. I worked on some projects for Jenny earlier in the year including her adorable fishing inspired invitations , monograms and a special monogram for her wedding gown label as well, so I cannot tell you how EXCITED I was to finally see the pictures of her and Adam's big day! They truly personalized their wedding to their lifestyle and the things that are most important in their lives and it really shows in their amazingly unique wedding style which shines through every single aspect and detail of their wedding, but for now, just a little teaser........

Danielle's Bridal Shower Invitation Design

Now that her shower has passed, I am thrilled to share the invitation design that I created for Miss Danielle's recent bridal shower. Jessica, her amazing Maid of Honor, contacted me several months ago to create a design for Danielle's shower and I, of course was thrilled to create another gorgeous element for one of Danielle's special days! I haven't heard how the shower went yet, but I am sure that everything was absolutely amazing! Danielle had not seen the invitation prior to the shower, so I kept it top secret as the location and everything was a surprise for Danielle and I did not want to spoil the fun! Here it is.....

Blush and Bashful....

No, I am not referring to the lovely Miss Shelby's wedding color palette from the fabulous movie "Steel Magnolias", but rather my description of this stunning wedding board that I found over at Snippet & Ink earlier today. I just adore all of the soft, feminine touches throughout this gorgeous inspiration board from the whimsical bird to the soft pink lemonade and macaroons and the gorgeous fluttery floral blossoms in subtle, velvety hues of blush corals, pinks and grapefruit tones. Such a nice modern twist on a very charming and feminine array of elements.....and now I totally want one of those delightful macaroons right now! :)

A New Look.........

You have likely noticed that Delovely Designs has a fresh new look. I have been working on some ideas for a new logo design for quite some time now and just recently finalized the design. I was becoming a tad bored with our old logo and colors and wanted to do something a bit more fun, edgy and modern while still maintaining a very elegant and chic appeal and I think that I was able to acheive just that with our new look! As you all know, I LOVE damask and also have an incredible passion for using bold contrasting colors as well, so with that in mind, I followed my instincts and went all out with a sleek black, crisp white and an incredibly vibrant green toned motif and of course, incorporated some damask prints and whimsical flourishes in the mix as well. I absolutely love the way it turned out and hope that you do too! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think! :)

My Apologies.....

I just want to thank everyone for their patience and apologize for any delays you might be experiencing in regards to response time for any emails or with any delays with current designs on order. I have been completely inundated with new inquiries and order requests over the past few weeks and I have been working very diligently to get back with everyone as soon as possible. It seems that wedding season is in full-swing and I am loving every minute of it, however being a self-proclaimed perfectionist and one that does not believe in rushing the creative process it does hinder my turnaround time slightly. (as you can see, I have even gotten a bit behind with my blog posts as well unfortunately) With that being said, I am currently still accepting new orders, however there will be a delay with start times for any new projects at this point. I have to do this in order to protect the integrity of my designs and to ensure that each and every one is as Delovely as possible! Thank you all again for your patience and support....I am so very blessed and honored to have such wonderful clients, colleagues and fans!

New Water Bottle Label Designs - Jessica and Jason

Here are a couple of other fabulous water bottle label designs that I just completed for Jessica and her fiance, Jason. I actually created a few other options as well, but these two were my favorites of the bunch. I LOVE the white, black and vibrant green tones that they have selected for their wedding and think that they provide the perfect dramatic, yet elegant, look for a chic summer wedding!

This label design was Jessica's favorite and the label she selected for her printed designs.

Another label option with a damask background

Welcome Door Hangers....

I absolutely love this cute idea for welcome door hangers that one of my brides, Amy, shared with me. I am currently working on several projects for Amy and her fiance Leo and I am going to be creating designs to be printed on both sides of these adorable door hangers that she plans on making to hang on the doors for her out of town guests. I cannot wait to see how they turn out and hear her guests' responses after her wedding this December!

New Wedding Invitation & Monogram Design - Nicole and Chad

Nicole and Chad are getting married this upcoming October and I just completed working on their invitation and monogram designs. This couple will be having a splendid outdoor wedding set in a lush botanical garden and the ceremony will actually take place near a grande old Oak tree. I can only imagine how gorgeous the foliage will be come October filled with stunning tones of firey reds, rusty oranges and rich amber hues as all of the leaves begin to change in the crisp cool autumn air. I love is actually my absolute favorite time of the year and I actually got married in October myself. :) For Nicole and Chad's autumn inspired invitation, I used deep hues of a rich bordeaux type tone combined with a strong chocolate brown tone to acheive a warm and inviting, yet bold appeal. Accents of flourishing foliage grace the corners of the design for an interesting look. I also create a directions and garden map insert for this pocketfold invitation design as well, however due to the personal contents of these designs I have not included them below. Besides the lovely invitation design, I also created numerous monogram designs for Nicole and Chad, however I have shared my absolute favorite here as I just LOVE this design!
