TGIF, ya’ll! It’s looking like Spring has just about sprung here in beautiful Virginia and we are looking forward to seeing some buds (hopefully!) on our beautiful new Tulip Magnolia (thanks a&g and yup, chicken-fenced this time to deter our resident beaver!), the smell of freshly cut grass, and cherry blossoms (of course!), not to mention some incredible Springtime weddings coming up! In honor of the DC Cherry Blossom Festival that starts this weekend, we wanted to share the invites from our first “semi-spring” wedding earlier this month. We hope you enjoy them. Happy Spring!

Invitations We Love – Liz & Jon

You may remember this gorgeous couple from their one super sneak peek just this week. You’ll be seeing lots more from their truly beautiful wedding very soon, but in honor of Spring’s arrival, we wanted to share their lovely invitation suite with you today. Liz & Jon live in and love Washington, DC so they wanted to share that love and enthusiasm with their many friends and family who would be visiting the city for their wedding. Their invitation suite evoked everything we all love about Spring in DC and got their guests even more excited to attend, I imagine.

First up – their cool Save-the-Date! Don’t you just love the embroidery look?

And the main event – their light, bright and beautiful invitations!

Love, love, love the coordinating envelope liner!

Cherry blossom branches from their Save-the-Date on their invitation envelope stamps. Great tie in!

Response card envelope. Almost too pretty to send back! Seriously, though, send those things back, people! ;-D

I adore the soft pinks and sage greens. Perfect for a Springtime wedding.

Ceremony program. Love the soft, but shiny ribbon!

And their coordinating menu card. Love their monogram on the pink cocktail napkins, too!

And last, but not least – their welcome boxes! We just love how they used the Jefferson memorial from their Save-the-Date on the welcome tag and aren’t these boxes printed with popular DC landmarks and monuments just the cutest? Perfection.

A huge thanks to Liz & Jon for sharing their stunning Spring wedding papers with us on this FAB Friday and we can’t wait to share their wedding with you all soon. In the meantime, we’re looking forward to our last weekend off here at HPA HQ for a while as Spring wedding season really heats up and are looking for some fun things to do. What are your favorite ways to celebrate Spring’s arrival and do you have cherry blossom fever, too??

    So great! I just love it. Where is your favorite place to get the display shelves?

    You know we need help displaying all of the amazing photos you take of the girls!

      Thanks so much, Heather! Were you talking about the ledges on this post? We’ve had those things for years now, and unfortunately neither of us have the foggiest idea anymore where they were purchased.

      But perhaps a jolt of inspiration will jog our memories. Crossing our fingers. But this ledge from Pottery Barn is awfully close.
