Custom work from 2010! Hurrah! It's about time, right? :)
As an extra treat for our blog followers for waiting so patiently to see photos of our recent work and our clients' beautiful weddings, I'm going to start doing a little peek inside the process - sharing more about the inspiration behind our designs and some of the unused drafts that helped push us to that perfect final product for each couple.
First up from 2010 are Kelly and Matt whose wedding was on February 27th of last year (happy belated first anniversary, K+M!). Kelly was planning an unabashedly romantic wedding and wanted the invitation to be classic and traditional but with that same romantic feel. The focus was on incorporating the lace from Kelly's gorgeous wedding gown into the stationery. In the end, that was achieved in both the design and the layout or the invitation. Kelly was kind enough to share some of the photos from her wedding, taken by the talented photographers at Imagine Studios.
With Kelly's request of lace-inspired imagery, a classic pairing of fonts, and a flourished monogram directing the process, here are the earliest invitation designs...
Once we zeroed in on the band of lace in one of the original designs, it was simply a matter of determining how and where to incorporate it...
Here is the final design of the suite in digital form:
And here is how it came together as a finished product, printed on a linen cardstock with a metallic gold accent, housed in a soft cream textured cotton blend cardstock tri-fold holder with ivory satin ribbons:
Sealed with a wide ivory satin ribbon and vintage lace overlay with a printed monogram tag:
We also had the chance to work on some items for the wedding itself, including ceremony programs and dinner menus:
Thank you for the opportunity to work together and for sharing your beautiful wedding with us, Kelly and Matt!
