Breaking News: You’ve Got Mail

5 Sep

Now that the wedding is less than two months away (!!!!!!), it’s time to actually see who is coming to this thing!  Our invitations have been sent out and we are so thrilled with them.

As you know, The Mezzanine is an old bank and recently underwent a $30M restoration so it looks great, but also like you are stepping into a bank lobby in the 1930’s.  There are so many unique and interesting art deco details about the space that we love.  For example, the bars at the cocktail hour will be the old bank teller windows and there are original works of art on the walls that depict the history of life in New Jersey.  But our most favorite thing is the incredible chandelier that hangs in the middle of the main room.

We love it so much that we decided it to be the inspiration for our invitations. The lovely and talented Lillie M took our inspiration and turned it into a fabulous invitation suite.   Then we found an amazing printer (thanks Erica!) who brought them to life.  If anyone needs a great printer – go see Judy!!

You can get a sneak peek with our witty (yet elegant!) response cards, but we will leave the rest of you in suspense.  This is not the final product, but you get the idea.  We can’t wait to read what you have to say!  Be on the lookout for a follow up post with our favorite replies.

As you can imagine, assembling 100+ invitation suites required a team and here we are hard at work.  Thanks to my mom and Kate for being great helpers and picture takers.

Now go on and check the mailbox.  xoxo db2be
