Earlier this year, I mentioned how much I love photo save the dates because Alex and David mailed one I designed to their guests. Their engagement photos offered such a wonderful peek into who they are as a couple, plus they celebrated their upcoming wedding in Philadelphia beautifully. I knew we needed to capture that same Philadelphia feeling when designing (and later mailing!) their wedding invitations.
On May 6, 2017, Alex and David hosted their luxury wedding at Old St. Joseph’s Church in Philadelphia and Finley Catering’s Ballroom at the Ben – one of the prettiest spaces in Philadelphia. I knew I had to bring their luxury wedding to life on paper, so that’s exactly what I did!
We layered the front of the invitation with gold glitter (you already know how much I love glitter!), and then we added a natural white cotton card stock. The natural white stock is actually one of my favorites because the end result once gold foil stamping is added is just gorgeous each and every time.
Aside from gold foil, Alex mentioned she really liked the idea of having their names featured at the top of their invitation. The key was to make sure their names appeared larger than anything else on the piece (so fun!), plus she also mentioned she wanted to continue to use their larger printed names on several other pieces of stationery.
A+D opted to use a clutch style invitation where all of the inserts were tucked away in a pocket on the back of the invitation. It’s always such a wonderful feature because it allows the invitation to feel current and modern. The gold foil detailing was carried throughout the insets, plus I also added a custom designed map of the area their wedding was held on the back of the Accommodations card. Maps are always a great keepsake for guests, in addition to being incredibly informative.
With its pink, gold, gold foil, and gold glitter palette, it’s safe to say Alex and David’s custom designed wedding invitation deserves all of the attention, so make sure to catch all of the photos Carly Fuller Photography captured below.
