Trillium and Sima Blue: Keeping Charm City Fashionable for 25 Years -

Sima Blue was turning 50 and life, as it happens, was evolving. She was running the men’s personal shopping department at Macy’s and feeling like she needed a change. She mentioned to a friend that if she was ever looking for help at her boutique, to give her a call.

Her friend called the next day. They went to breakfast the day after that.

Hannah Rodewald, owner of The Pleasure of Your Company at Green Spring Station, has helped thousands of area brides-to-be (and their moms and grooms-to-be) design their invitations. As you can imagine, styles and trends have evolved over the last 30 years she has been in the stationery business.

Every Invitation Tells a Story at The Pleasure of Your Company

One thing has remained the same: the wedding invitation sets the tone for the entire wedding celebration. Whether the couple chooses ecru linen with gold script or navy stock with modern typeface, it tells a story about the event — and the couple.

“Oh, the stories we could tell about weddings!” winked Hannah. But she doesn’t. She’s a professional.

… but she did share a few stories behind some of her favorite invitation designs.
