Cody and Megan 2018

I get a lot of requests for unique stationery. But Megan and Cody have won my little stationery heart with all the details they came up with. I’m so happy I was able to be a tiny part of their beautiful day.

When we first discussed the direction they wanted to go with their wedding, Harry Potter was mentioned immediately (within the first sentence). And if I’m being completely honest, I was a little worried. This is not something you typically get asked to design around for a wedding. Plus, I had only read the first book way back in 6th grade English class so I was a little rusty on my Harry Potter Trivia. Once I realized this was really happening I immediately borrowed the entire collection of Harry Potter movies from a friend and spent an entire Saturday binge watching it all. I’m hooked guys! I’m slightly embarrassed to even admit that I hadn’t seen them, but now I am ready for anyone else that may come along needing a little Harry Potter wedding inspiration.


Matte gold foil was used on the invitation in combination with navy ink printed on felt textured 120lb ivory card stock. Navy envelopes addressed with gold pointed pen calligraphy held everything together. The bottom of the invitation itself was burned. Almost like it had been scorched by a Hungarian Horntail. We also added a small quote from Dumbledore to the backside of the details card.

I also helped with a few additional items like mirror signage for the ceremony, signature drinks and a photo booth. The mirrors were provided by the couple and i wrote on them in white ink. I wasn’t kidding when I said every detail was thought of. Sometimes a theme can be overwhelming, but Cody and Megan managed to create the perfect day with subtle nods to all the things important to them making their love story come to life. I’ve included a few photos from their wedding taken by the fabulous Rachel Mathew Photography. Go check out her Facebook to see more.
