We are really excited to be adding two new invitation suites to our downloads section! They are exclusive to Love & Lavender and were provided by the fabulous ladies over at Merrymint Design.

This first up is a bright and cheery wedding invite that goes by the name Argyle.  This invite would be perfect for a wedding with a yellow and gray color scheme like the real wedding I featured the other day.  Check it out! This is the new Argyle Invitation with RSVP card, download it over here!


The second inviation design is the Rustic Country invitation suite, also provided to L&L by Merrymint Design. Barn weddings are super popular lately, so this invite suite will be a perfect match for all those rustic brides out there looking for a simplistic style such as this rustic country invite.


Another huge update is the user friendly invitation creation template that will slowly be showing up throughout all our awesome invitations.  No more downloading PDFs, PNGs, or font types.  Simply add your wedding information in the boxes, press “create”  and voila your invitation will be created!   Of course, if you prefer the PDF/PNG format, then we will keep that up for you too.

We have only done 3 so far so bare with us as we slowly transfer them all.  We would love your feedback on the new template box.  If you have any comment, ideas, concerns, we are all ears and would love to hear from you!

Its Wednesday and a short work week, cheers to that! How fitting that there was champagne served at this art deco wedding. That is exactly what drew me to this gorgeous Long Island wedding, I love the look of a champagne fountain.  You rarely see them done anymore with the exception of maybe a formal night on a cruise ship. So it brought back some great memories for me.  A champagne fountain adds a touch of elegance and glamor to a reception and the effect is  perfect especially is you are having a champagne toast.

Art Deco Wedding~ Remarks from the Photographer

“Jill and Josh were married at The Foundry, a gorgeous, historic metal factory in Long Island City. The building was a working 19th Century Foundry which has been meticulously restored to retain its industrial character with brick, iron, and glass details.”

Jill the bride shares, “When it comes to our wedding style, we really loved the idea of an art deco/1940′s feel for the wedding, but we also wanted it to be simple and personal. We had fun adding the personal touches like my grandma’s gooey butter cake, cocktails named after people we love, and then bringing New York City into the mix by making our own Chuppah. It began hanging over us, and then we attached balloons that turned it into the NYC skyline as our backdrop with the Empire State building and Chrysler building. Our friends Lloyd and Michael made the design of the Chuppah possible, and Josh and I spent two full Saturdays painting it!”

“The industrial style felt very modern when paired with black and white chevron dinning tables and a graphic black and white representation of the skyline. A sophisticated elegance finishes off the looks with calla lilly centerpieces.”

“Although this was a winter wedding and we had lots of snow on the ground, the Foundry has rooms full of natural light and brick walls with growing ivy that give an outdoor feel while being indoors.”
