Can I declare these my favorite invites of 2018 even though we’re barely three weeks in? The bride, Sam, described her big day as a modern but cozy event, full of white flowers, candles and grey and gold accents. They had wisely chosen a single venue for the entire schedule (it is January in Wisconsin after all!) which was a historic mansion overlooking a snow-covered lake, and Sam was going with a nontraditional wedding dress.
I translated these ideas into both design and materials: Pointed pen calligraphy pairs with modern typography and an abstract swash element while luxurious gold foil and white ink accent textured charcoal paper and gold envelopes.
When an East Coast wedding planner reached out to see if I’d send a few things for a styled shoot she was working on, I knew just what would complete her high end vision. Using a white ink pen, I emblazoned the shoot theme in simple, modern calligraphy on a crystal clear sheet of Plexiglass. The resulting signage integrates perfectly with contributions from vendors all across the country and offers the photographer the opportunity to create unique shots.
The hand-written invitations were truly over-the-top, this time on a thinner, frosted version of the Plexiglass material. Can you imagine receiving these in the mail?
