As soon as I launched Megan + Jane, I received an email from the sweetest, most organized and enthusiastic bride-to-be. We met via FaceTime one evening to talk about what she and her fiance envisioned for their wedding.
Their colors were navy and gold – she wanted something elegant, something sparkly, and among other descriptive terms, she mentioned the Disney classic "Beauty and the Beast".
I wanted her to feel like Belle.
When she said "Beauty and the Beast," all I could think about was the shape in the bottom of Belle's ballroom gown. The shape of curtains on a theatrical stage. That shape became my inspiration.
To carry out the rest of the look, I paired a sans serif and script font. These were printed offset on a beautiful, thick navy paper stock. I matched the gold ink printed on the invites with the gold envelope. A glittery belly band and envelope liner tied the whole look together.
The Sarah Vaughan stamps at the post office couldn't have been better timed – I loved how the colors in the stamp complimented the look.
Working with these two was an absolute joy. They are spirited, fun, and so in love. It's contagious!
I couldn't be more thrilled with how their wedding invitations turned out.
Happy 1 Year Wedding Anniversary, Alexis and Jonathan!
