Kirsten & Patrick : Wedding Invitations

I have been in touch with Kirsten for over a year now...we first met to discuss her invitations and wedding day items, and in the process I have also created her save the dates and shower invitations! She has been wonderful to work with and it's exciting to see everything come together for her May wedding day.

Yellow and gray has been the wedding color scheme throughout all of her stationery pieces, and she loved the idea of incorporating a damask pattern with her square titanium gray pocketfold invitations.

The invitation features a border of the yellow damask pattern and a lowercase flourished typeface.

The accommodations and directions cards.

The response postcard and custom monogram stamp.

Ivory mailing envelopes {not pictured} were also printed with the guest and return addresses and dressed up with custom yellow and gray damask patterned postage stamps.

Andrea & Pete's Wedding Invitations

Andrea and Pete had to move up their wedding date from September to May! We had a plan for the September invitations and ended up keeping the same format but changing all of the colors to silver and lavender purple with accents of charcoal gray to work with the new spring wedding color scheme.

A silver floral-patterned z-card and enclosure card wrap holds the lavender invitation, response postcard and reception cards neatly in place. A monogram of their first initials is featured on the invitation. These simple and elegant invitations were developed so quickly, and I think they turned out lovely!

Jenna & Thomas : Wedding Invitations

Jenna and Thomas are planning a destination wedding on the northwest coast of the Michigan, near Lake Michigan. The venues where the ceremony and reception will take place have lots of charm, and their wedding day plans will infuse their modern style with a vintage country theme.

The pocketfold invitations that I created for their day have their vibrant pink and teal blue wedding colors paired with black. The design features tulips, which will be the main flower used on their wedding day and one of their favorite decor elements.

Four tiered enclosure cards were included in the pocket, including a directions card with custom location map and local attractions for guests traveling in, as well as an accommodations card, reception card and response postcard. The black linen pocketfold is neatly held together with a layered monogram seal and wrap.
