Newport Pairings

I love to design invitations for weddings at historic homes. It's especially nice if there are lots of decorative details on site to reference in the design. So in keeping with my Gilded Age theme, I've paired Blue Ribbon's wedding stationery with some of Newport's Beaux-Arts mansions.

Rococo's delicate florals would be perfect for a wedding at Rosecliff.

Vintage Tribeca's ornate ironwork design would work well for a celebration at The Elms.

North Moore flats (used as menus) would be an elegant choice for dinner reception at Marble House.

And Floral Frieze would make an excellent choice for the invitations.
