Floral Pastels - Lindsey and Mason

I have known Lindsey Fay for what might as well be my entire life! I have watched her gracefully grow over the years into a mature, grounded and selfless human being. When she smiles you can't help but smile back, it's infectious! Also, she might be the best storyteller I know - she has this perfect way of laughing while she tells you something funny, it's so contagious you'll find yourself laughing too. She's just someone you want to be near, and you feel good being around her. It makes me so happy to know she has found her soulmate. Isn't that what we are all searching for?

Getting to have a small part in their big day by designing the wedding invitations was an honor. The colors she was using for the wedding were so easy to work with. Each invitation had script names and floral accents on the corners. Those same floral accents were used on the RSVP postcard, and then a watercolor wash was used on the information card to break things up a bit. Inside the envelope, we used a subtle wood grain white liner that contrasted nicely with the off-white envelopes. And to top it all off, custom guest and return addressing to match! 

Their wedding day was absolutely magical from start to finish. I listed a few of the wedding details at the end of this post.

Tina has timeless taste and wanted invitations that reflected her classic style. The color scheme was neutral shades consisting of ivory, blush, champagne, and modest amounts of black. From the layered super thick Invitation to the square monogram seal, this invitation just screams elegance.

Red and Black - Whitney and Phillip

Happy Monday friends!  This invitation just makes me smile, and when is a better time to smile than on a Monday! There's not much to explain with these beauties. I met this bride while dancing for a charity event in Evansville with the SaSSquad. She is full of energy, spunk and is truly one of the most beautiful people I have met inside and out. By choosing to outsource all of her wedding details to businesses around the tri-state, her wedding is definitely #weareevv worthy. I had the honor of doing her invitations.

The invites consisted of double layered off-white weave textured paper. The red ribbon was twisted on the front and adhered to form a permanent belly band. It served two purposes, helping to hold the additional cards during transit but also adding a subtle punch to the black inked wedding invitation. The entire suite had a roaring 20's vibe without going too over the top. Using small design elements like the reversed typography of the wedding date and a subtle border helped get the theme across to the recipients.

An additional information card informed guests of the reception venue and accommodation details. If you are ever going to include accommodations, you should also call and ask for any discount options for guests. Most lodging establishments will give you a discounted rate to pass on to guests if they use a special code when booking. 

The photography for the wedding was done by the fabulous Rachel Mathew Photography. If you haven't heard of her, you are missing out. Her work is flawless, and definitely captures the essence of any wedding she shoots. Not that this gorgeous couple needed any help being photogenic, they look like royalty! 

Sending a big congrats to Whitney and Phillip!
