Washington DC is a favorite setting for weddings especially in the spring when the gorgeous cherry blossoms bloom! This year we designed a wedding invitation for a couple making the most of an elegant cherry blossom theme with watercolor bloom arrangements and sketches of DC’s iconic buildings adorning their invitations and day of accessories. We love the pinks and greens of the flowers and printing the buildings in golds on shimmering white and ivory papers for invitations and programs. Let us know if you are getting married in Washington DC - we would love to provide your stationery!

We were so happy to work with Brooks and Tyler who wanted to feature downtown Annapolis, Maryland in the design of their wedding invitations. The wedding was held at the beautiful Governor Calvert House which we featured on the invitation with our hand drawn sketch of the venue, but the Grooms wanted their guests to enjoy Annapolis as a whole during the wedding so we created a skyline drawing of the town featuring many of the landmark buildings we have drawn there over the years. The skyline was used as an envelope liner in the invitation suite and then carried through to decorate several pieces of the wedding day stationery. We love our customers who inspire us to create new art for them and many thanks and best wishes to Brooks and Tyler for being that customer! Our thanks to KRR Photography for the great shots of the wedding.Prints of the Annapolis Skyline are now available on our website.
We were so pleased to see our sketches appearing in recent articles and announcements this month! We were commissioned to draw the beautiful Loyola Blakefield iconic building for a Groom as a gift from his Bride during their wedding there last year. The photo of the Groom and his sketch by Bradley Images below was pictured in an article in the latest issue of Wedding 411 Magazine on Bride and Groom gifts to each other co-authored by local wedding planner Drew Vanlandingham. Prints of the Loyola sketch are available on our website and the sketch makes a great addition to a wedding invitation suite!
Also pictured is our sketch of the Antrim 1844 inn and wedding venue on the Inn’s stationery which we created and produced for them. The stationery was featured in an announcement of the Antrim’s special Valentine’s Day packages which run thru March 15. Great place to stay and relax so check out their specials at www.antrim1844.com.
Check out cinkart.com to visit our newly launched Navy Weddings page! After 33 years
of supplying wedding invitations and accessories to the military, especially Navy
and Marine personnel getting married at the Naval Academy Chapel we felt a special
section was necessary.
Cink Art, LLC is one of the few stationers licensed to use the United States Navy and Marine Corps crests on printed invitations and our inventory of designs and products for Naval Academy Weddings has grown considerably over the years so we are showcasing these on this exclusive page. A list of trustworthy wedding vendors we frequently work with who
all have extensive experience or specialize in weddings taking place in Annapolis and the
U.S. Naval Academy is also available on the page. We are proud and grateful to serve the men and women who serve and provide a discount to all our military customers.
Thanks and congrats to Ty and Jessica, one of our couples who married in 2018 at
the Naval Academy. We created an Invitation ensemble in the wedding colors plus welcome
bag maps and accessories that featured several pieces of hand drawn art and a nautical chart envelope liner pictured in these wonderful photos by Carly Fuller. Go Navy and go visit

While exhibiting at the recent Holiday Trunk Show at the Antrim 1844 we had the fortune to exhibit next to a product worth mentioning to any couple planning a nautical themed wedding - the wonderful Froats boat shoes. These leather boat shoes of many patterns and designs created by a local Baltimore entrepreneur are an ideal accessory to a party of groomsmen (socks or no) to wear with their suits or tuxes - imagine the photos! Choose from the iconic Maryland crab/lacrosse stick design, seersucker, Camo, cork or one of many designs offered on the froats.com website. The shoes make a great wedding or holiday gift for boaters and land lubbers alike. Go Froats! Check out froats.com for ordering the shoes and other great products.
We were so excited to have the opportunity to create the stationery and accessories for Eric and Jordan’s fall wedding at the beautiful Glen Ellen Farm near Fredrick Maryland. The bride and groom wanted an elegant and rustic theme for their event featuring wood accents with ivories, browns and maroon wedding colors. We carried these accents through out the stationery for the invitations, signs, save the dates, menus, seating chart, table numbers and favor tags. The big thrill of this wedding was hand drawing the wedding venue and water color painting the scene of the wedding, as seen on the inside of the invitation envelope. Thanks again Eric and Jordan and best wishes for your new life together!
