Cream and Blush - Laura & Joshua

I love the simplicity of cream and blush together. I realize that neutrals are a wedding trend, but I really hope it doesn't go away. Something about the mix of cream and white with a touch of any pastel is just timeless to me. When Laura first came to me needing invitations she already had her mind set on a lot of different aspects of her wedding. Most brides still haven't figured out the finer details when I meet them in the beginning, but she had it all! Once she started giving me her vision of the big day, I could tell we had similar taste. 

We settled on a creamy script font for the first names of the bride and groom across the top, and the event details are listed in a charcoal grey serif font centered below. The invite itself is attached to a light blush pink backer that sticks out around the edges. This gives depth to the invitation, but also adds additional thickness and luxury.


The invitation suite had 4 pieces total: Invite, Response card, Details card, and Registry card.
A quickly disappearing item is the RSVP envelope, this set included one in a matching khaki color to the outside envelope. The details card had event addresses with a small map on the backside to help aid in any confusion on the trek across town. And the registry card was about the size of a business card which was a clean way to add the information for any inquiring guest.

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.

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!
