Shabby Chic and Vintage Inspired Wedding Invitations

By Krista

We are so excited to continue our new line of shabby chic and vintage inspired wedding stationery. While we may have done it a little backwards (we started with the thank you notes), we are psyched that the invitations are now in the shop. We are busy designing so keep your eye out for more matching stationery soon!

There are 12 designs in all for these gorgeously mismatched invitations. Contact us for more details and be on the lookout for more shabby chic and vintaged inspired items in our shop!

A New Jersey Shore Styled Shoot by Christina Lilly Photography

By Krista

Happy March everyone! We could not be more excited for spring to come, not only for the warmer weather, but also for the gorgeous spring weddings that are around the corner! Since we have warmer weather on our minds, even though it’s still mid-40′s here in NJ, we wanted to share with you a gorgeous styled shoot from our beautiful shores. The photographer, Christina Lilly, wanted to remind people of the beauty of the New Jersey shores and how the beach is the perfect natural backdrop for an intimate wedding. We could not agree more!

Shabby Chic Vintage Inspired Thank You Cards

By Krista

Our shabby chic wedding programs from Keri’s wedding are one of the most popular items in our shop (and one of our favorites). We want to start expanding this shabby chic vintage line, and we are psyched to introduce our new addition. These thank you cards are the perfect way to thank the guests of your romantic, vintage, shabby chic or country wedding or event. Hope you love them as much as we do!

There are twelve designs in each set of these shabby chic thank you cards. You have the flexibility of ordering a set or ordering in bulk for a larger soiree. Thank you cards are blank inside and come with kraft paper envelopes.

A Valentine’s Engagement by Love, Sylvia Photography

By Krista

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our ECB readers! We are delighted to share this gorgeous engagement session with you today, inspired by this day of love, and perfectly and beautifully captured by Love, Sylvia Photography.

From the photographer:

I took this colorful duo to one of the quietest places on the jersey shore I know, Cattus Island. We toughed out some chilly weather, and a few weary steps over the terrain but it was well worth it. We found some special spots that nature seemed to etch out for Jason and Nicole. A downed tree with a love seat for two and some shore reeds that went on forever, where the only sounds heard were loving whispers, flapping wings, and a chilly breeze that gave the landscape some extra life.

Congratulations, Nicole and Jason!

EastCoastBride on Etsy: Customizing Bunting Wedding Invitations

By Krista

We strive to not only create items in our Etsy shop that are beautiful, but that are also versatile and lend well to customization for our clients. We recently designed three very different invitations from our handmade Bunting Invitation and are excited to share them with you!

Lacy and Felipe’s Wedding in Chile:

This was our first invitation in another language! We love how Lacy chose to personalize her and Felipe’s wedding invitations with a quote from Jane Eyre. Romantic and rustic…love the finished look!

Kelly and Douglas’ Pinks and Peaches Wedding:

Kelly loved our bunting invitation; however, wanted to customize the fonts and colors. We love the pinks, peaches and greens together for the bunting flags, and the new fonts give the invitation a whole new whimsically pretty look!

Kelly’s Country Bridal Shower:

Our friend Aimee approached us with a request for the Bunting Invitation with a western twist for a bridal shower. She didn’t want it to “scream country”, but to quietly reflect the theme while remaining pretty and rustic. We accomplished this by playing with western and script fonts as well as the flag patterns.

We have so much more to share! Keep your eyes out for some new listings!
