What’s black, white, and yellow all over? Jess and Gene’s themed wedding, featuring a penguin in a bow tie! This darling, animal-lover couple held their big day at the Maryland Zoo. We loved every detail of this animal-filled day, planned by Ella & Christina. Bride Jess provided us with her own graphic, and we had a blast creating these unique invitations and table numbers. It just goes to show that every client’s needs are completely different, and we love being able to make any wish come true! Thank you Ethan Yang Photography for capturing our pretty paper and every penguin from Jess and Gene’s wedding day!

There are many different ways to make your wedding stationery unique! The Dandelion Patch loves creating custom design elements that reflects each couple’s personal style. A custom monogram is a fun addition to your invitation and you can use the design for all of your paper needs. If you have a vision in mind, our designers can make it come to life!
With help from Sara Muchnick Events, Lilly and Phillip used our design services for their custom monogram. The bride tells us, “We had an excellent experience working with The Dandelion Patch to create customized wedding invitations! The people we worked with were very patient and did a great job offering a variety of options in response to our feedback. They created beautiful invitations with an adorable custom logo that perfectly captured what we had envisioned, which was no small task to blend my husband and my differing style preferences. I highly recommend using them for custom work!”
We are so glad the Hummels were happy with their design! We can’t thank Kurstin Roe Photography enough for sharing these stunning photos of their big day!
We love that Lilly picked a color scheme as vibrant as her personality! For more fun wedding inspiration, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! Happy Friday!
