A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015
No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.
This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.
Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.
Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.
To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.
A Hint of Pink Peeking Out of Our Custom Invitation Sleeve.... February 02 2015
This couple was a pleasure to work with... They gave use their vision and loved everything we could do for them. The idea of a custom sleeve that would have the invitation peek through was a favorite for both the bride and groom the minute we sat down. The love of pink and gray allowed us to capture both individuals with a beautiful elegance. The design ideas started with a modern monogram and then the addition of ornate designs gave the invitation an element to highlight the information. Above you can see the invitation outside and inside the sleeve. Behind the sleeve is the envelope. Along with the invitation, the sleeve held the hotel information, direction card and the response card.
The simple elegant design was then used to create a complete package as the pieces created their entire wedding brand. Above you can see the seating card design, stickers for champagne bottle and cookie box favors, a thank you poster that was on display throughout the venue and the front and inside of the ceremony program.
It is always an exciting journey with a bride and groom when they come to us for advice and creative ideas. Together we shape a look and then create an array of printed pieces that speak to them as well as their vision of their big day. The result is always so satisfying for us and gives the couple a sense of pride of all the components presented.
The Beautiful Generosity of Love... January 22 2015
The beautiful couple were embracing their second marriages and wanted to just celebrate their happiness with all their friends and family. This was our first and only wedding that the invitation asks for no gifts. They requested a simple invitation that would hold all the information in one combined card. We came up with the idea of an 3 fold accordion invitation. Each flap will have a touch of information eliminating separate multiple cards. Keeping the style of the invitation elegant and traditional. Their colors were green and yellow with a touch of cream. Above you can see the entire invitation with the response card and all the envelopes.
To show a traditional style we used a capital U monogram throughout the invitation. It is ghosted in the background and used as an element of design. Ornate glyphs also were added as accent. You can see a detail above of the first flap with the couples and ceremony information.
The second flap gave the reception information.
The third flap was a personal note from the couple to express their thanks. It is here that they were able to share their thoughts and give the guests a reminder of how wonderful they are by not asking for gifts.
Each tri fold flap had 2 layers of cover stock to highlight the green and frame the design.
