What better way to announce the celebration of your relationship than with stationery as unique as your love story? By way of England and New York, Tom Hart and Laura Shema—the husband-and-wife team that is Jolly Edition—have recently settled in Baltimore, which is great news for local couples seeking custom invitations, RSVP cards, and save-the-date announcements. All of Jolly Edition’s work is entirely sketched and painted by hand, allowing for truly personalized, beautiful wedding stationery.

Whether you are looking to include details from your proposal or your first-date story, or want to announce your wedding theme in a clever way, Jolly Edition works with each couple to literally paint a pretty picture of their upcoming nuptials. Not getting married anytime soon? Jolly Edition also creates bespoke keepsake wedding portraits, which make fabulous—and personal—wedding gifts.

Scroll down for photos of Jolly Edition’s rustic printed goods, and Pinterest away.
