Invitation to Celebration: Contemporary Classic Wedding Stationery featured in Exquisite Weddings Magazine!

Recently we were asked by Catherine Bachelier Smith, wedding planner extraordinaire and someone I’m proud to call a friend, to create an invitation and complete wedding suite for two of her special clients. When I met with the couple and started asking for inspiration about what they love, who they are as a couple and how I can translate ‘them’ into my designs,  I received quite a whirlwind of thoughts. Contemporary, modern, vintage florals, classic, incorporate the grooms Moorish heritage. Combining a multitude of contrasting inspirations is always a challenge, a challenge I love!!! View the invitation and a few gorgeous photos of their wedding here but also make sure to catch it in the latest issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine.

From the inspiration of the Moorish tiles and some contemporary fabrics I illustrated two custom pattern that were incorporated throughout the invitation and wedding stationery. The die cut invitation was wrapped in a laser cut wood grained paper and adorned with a separate green and gold foiled disc designed in the same ornament as the pattern. Wendy Ware Calligraphy addresses each envelope in her chocolate brown elegant script for the final touch.

Collaborating with other planners is always such a delight and gives us a chance to meet other talented individuals in the wedding industry. Whether we contribute the invitations, total event decor or even candy and dessert bar styling, we always love being able to work  along side others we inspire or that we’re inspired by.
