Vintage Ivory - Emily and Robert

Emily and Robert were living in Arizona when we started planning their wedding invitations. We did a couple of video chats and lots of texting and phone conversations to get this invitation right. It was the first time I had to communicate long distance with a couple. Looking back, it was an exciting experience and I just love how these turned out. This design may look familiar to anyone that follows my work. That's because it has taken on a lot of different looks over the years. 

The look is a modern twist on the 20's era. Who doesn't love everything about that time period? By using textured ivory super thick card stock and layering a burgundy backer we ended up with something pretty incredible to hold. The response card and information card were simple enough to get the job done, but not distract or make the entire suite overwhelming with design. 

And those shimmer envelopes with the liners! I could go on for days about how gorgeous they are. The photos really don't do them justice. They are made with a quartz paper that has this faint shimmer. The liners are made with the same shimmer stock, but have a light grey almost lavender damask print. In the end, the entire suite has a nice flow to it without being too "matchy-matchy." When I meet with new couples it is definitely one of the first invitations I pull out to show off.
