Our meetings were held via FaceTime, since the couple I worked with on designing these wedding invitations lives in Minneapolis. There they were nestled around their phone, sipping red wine and flipping through my proposed invites. I could feel the warmth, the love and the excitement they had for each other and their much anticipated wedding day. ♥
The couple's vision was simple: a cozy, romantic, rustic winter wedding. One surrounded with an intimate gathering of immediate family for their big day. (When I say it was an intimate gathering, I mean intimate. The couple only sent out T-E-N invitations.)
Their color palette was ivory and burgundy. I used a creamy ivory card stock and paired it with a shimmery grey envelope, lined with a hand-illustrated evergreen twig pattern. For a pop of color, I used a burgundy silk ribbon as a belly-band.
I hand-lettered the couples names and key information on the invitation, and hand-illustrated winter evergreens to give the piece a cozy-chic look. The invitation included a standard invite, an R.S.V.P. postcard and weekend itinerary.
Here's how it all came together:
The shimmer on the envelope reminded me of how the sun hits the snow on those beautiful winter mornings. ♥
Throughout the year I create custom invitations for special occasions and personal stationery items. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in working together.
