Audrey & Daniel’s Modern Botanical Invite

From day one it seems Audrey (my now sister in law!) had the perfect vision for what her wedding day would be. The setting, the colors, the style – her idea was clear.  Meticulous planning, a keen eye for detail and her impeccable taste made that vision a reality when she married Daniel  on a beautiful day in September. Audrey and Daniel’s (who most people know as “Grub”) wedding was dreamy, elegant, fun, and so uniquely them.

Audrey is immensely talented and I admire so much her creativity and personal style. Collaborating with her on this invitation was a dream in part because her idea was so refined. I chose a simple, all text invitation. It’s elegance is in it’s minimalism. We printed on a beautiful, heavy, cotton paper with a soft texture. The luxe paper elevated the simple design.

The special “moment” of this invitation is definitely the vellum overlay. The rose illustration nods to the natural, botanical theme of the wedding and adds interest. The barely there names are a delicate and magical touch. I incorporated the floral graphic into the ceremony and luncheon insert to tie the theme of the entire suite together.

Thank you Audrey & Grub for including me in your beautiful day. I’m lucky to have such crazy talented family members who are a ton of fun to work with.

If you’ve been following along you may have noticed this has been a big year for weddings in my family – 3 siblings just this year! I still have one more to post and I’m excited to share it.

Classy Confetti Wedding Invitation

This pretty little invitation suite was created for my littlest sister, Elizabeth, for her wedding this past week. Her wedding was absolutely dreamy AND a total blast – a post about that coming soon – and I hope that these invitations set the stage for the great big party that it was!

Because I was very involved with the planning of the wedding it was easy to nail down a look and feel that would match the event. I was going for something that would illustrate a fun celebration but elevated, and refined. The confetti in a gold and champagne palette did just the thing.

I used simple geometric shapes to add a vintage, art deco feel. The classic script font added whimsy and femininity.

The finishing touch was the shiny gold envelope liners. They really made the gold tones in the confetti pop and gave the suite the luxe, glam feeling I wanted to convey.

Congratulations Elizabeth and Troy! I can’t wait to share more details from their great, big fabulous day next week!
