First we fell in love with Jackson, her spirited dog, and quickly thereafter Kristen, the equally spirited bride. She was returning to her family ranch in the Tetons (Wyoming) to say “I do” in a meadow full of wild flowers. The invitation had to feel classic with a pinch of “Howdy.” We landed on a lavender and chocolate color palette, loads of calligraphy by Emily Snyder (Queen Quills), and hand-drawn maps of the town. An activities accordion followed the mountain line of the Tetons while informing the guests about the weekend.
Don’t you just love the bride’s coat? Meet the new mister and misses, who wed at The Players Club on a cold winters day. Mr. Boddington designed correspondence that spoke to the era of art deco with infusions of wintry colors (ice blue and scarlet). Do take a close look at their rehearsal dinner card… who thought a ball and pins could look so chic?

A round up of our favorite save-the-dates in the past year:
Lions and tigers and brides, oh my! When little miss Mary bride chatted about her wedding, her eyes lit up like saucers at the mention of the Central Park Zoo. Clearly Mr. Boddington needed to make the zoo part of the invitation but without comprising her stylish nature. Hmmmm…. a monkey in a tux? To make the brief more challenging, Mary wished to include an updated family crest, part Armenian and part British.
Being a stationer one would think you have the most impressive scripted hand. On the contrary! Although we value the importance of legible correspondence, not everyone has it. That is where these lovely ladies come in handy. Although calligraphy is predominantly used in the world of weddings and formal fetes, Mr Boddington encourages you to employ this art on not so eventful moments… like sending a letter to your estranged uncle in Saigon. After all, who could deny the receipt of such a lovely letter?

Welcome to Santa Barbara where the sun is shining and all brides look like stunning! Max and Day, a smart looking couple from New York City, tied the knot on family’s avocado farm in California. Their request was simple… make the correspondence look organic, bright and stylish. Mr. Boddington’s sketched out leaves and fruit from the farm’s avocado trees, later to be letterpressed throughout the collection. The color story, persimmon and chocolate, resemble the setting sun. And although the studio had nothing to do with baking their favor- homemade brownies- we will say they were some of the best morsels we have yet to taste!
