Jessica & Marc : Wedding Invitations

Jessica and Marc will be celebrating their wedding this summer at Shadowland on Silver Beach, a unique venue in Southwest Michigan that is located on the shore of Lake Michigan near the Silver Beach Carousel. Jessica's vision for their wedding invitations was something whimsical and slightly vintage in style, but still formal and elegant looking, and she chose to use shades of champagne, ivory, black and a hint of bright pink.

Their pocketfold invitation with tiered enclosure cards

Various typestyles were combined on the invitation design, along with vintage flourishes

A wedding "Details" card with accommodations information, a note about their wedding website and a custom map design. A carousel horse icon marks the location for the reception on the map.


The Reception card features a carousel in pink with their "S" monogram initial, which conveniently works for Silver Beach and Shadowland as well!

The back of the response postcard was designed to look like a carousel ticket. This was Jessica's idea, and it is my favorite detail! I enjoyed browsing through images of vintage carousel tickets for inspiration. The photo on the "ticket" was taken at Jessica & Marc's engagement shoot on Silver Beach, as was the photo we used for their save the date announcement.

To complete the look of these gorgeous invitations, envelopes were printed with the addresses and custom carousel horse response card stamps and carousel/monogram mailing envelope stamps were designed.

Real Wedding : Teresa & Mike

Teresa and Mike were 2009 wedding clients. If you have followed my blog, you may remember their movie-themed save the dates, wedding invitations and day-of stationery. I was so happy to recently hear from Teresa, and she was kind enough to send me a few photos from their AMAZING wedding day!

{a colorful, unique, FUN-filled wedding}


Congratulations Teresa and Mike, and thank you again for sharing these beautiful images!
