Lauren & Joel : Wedding Invitations

Lauren contacted me a year and a half ago after getting engaged and before she had a set wedding date!  Her fiancĂ© is the brother of Lisa, so she was familiar with my work and knew the she wanted to work together on her wedding invitations and day-of stationery.

The style for Lauren and Joel's wedding day is romantic and elegant, but simple and fun, and the color scheme is midnight blue, ivory, and champagne gold, with accents of burgundy red.  Lauren loved the shimmery navy blue paper and the paisley print, so we did mailing envelopes and pocket cards in the blue and used the paisley throughout.  The paisley and the script type that we used added the perfect touch of whimsy, and the contrast of the navy with ivory and champagne is really striking and sophisticated.  I love how these turned out!
