The couple enlisted the help of Julia Shaer, a close family friend, to create one-of-a-kind stationery that would give guests a taste of the elegant event to come. For the save-the-dates, Shaer paid tribute to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the wedding’s location, to give out-of-town guests a taste of the place Laura and Daniel call home, with illustrations of the city’s skyline and a classic Philly pretzel. The invitations, which the couple found at a local stationery shop, had a more formal tone with a traditional script font set on ivory paper. A gold foil border and floral envelope liner gave the suite a glam, fall-inspired feel, perfectly the wedding’s autumnal theme. “They were perfect for us—traditional without being to formal,” Laura says.
