happily ever after

inspiration

sallyann & don were a match made on eharmony.com and it was a dream come true. so very anxious to start their happily ever after, once engaged the couple spent only seven months planning their staten island, new york, wedding. in sallyann's words, they were "looking for a unique romantic fairy tale-ish (minus disney) magical enchanting type of invitation...tired of the same ol' same ol', wanting something unique." the design construction and framed layouts were inspired by the imagery of medieval castles—fortified drawbridges, latticed portcullis and crenelated battlements—filled with lavish linens, gold encrusted jewels, ornate works of art and hammered metal, as well as the exquisite hand lettering of illuminated manuscripts and the worn and frayed pages of children's storybook fairy tales.
