Anytime a couple mentions they want to prominently feature black, white, and gold in their wedding stationery palette, I continue to encourage them! There are few (if any!) pairings more timeless, classic, and, in this case, modern. Needless to say, I’m so excited to introduce you to Carolann and Dan’s luxurious suite!
C+D both reside in cosmopolitan New York City, but they grew up in the Philadelphia area. When they were planning their wedding, a trip home to celebrate was the only option on their radar! And, they could not have chosen better locations in which to celebrate. Carolann and Dan recited their vows at Old Saint Mary’s Church before kicking off their night of dinner and dancing at the Atrium at Curtis Center.
Carolann has a love for modern style, and I was up for the challenge of designing a completely different look, especially one I knew would match the pair’s venue so perfectly. For the invitation, we decided to alternate black and white for each of the included pieces, plus all of the details were letterpressed in black with gold foil stamping to ensure the suite felt luxurious. Aside from the gold gilded edges carefully painted onto the sides of the invitations, my favorite detail of this suite will always be the rounded edges. They make the design seem even more sleek!
Before placing the invitation in its cream envelope with a black liner, we added the inserts to the mix. Both the accommodations and reception inserts were printed in gold foil, while the RSVP card was printed using black letterpress as a nod to the main invitation. Once complete, the inserts were stacked on top of each other (and the invitation!) so they alternated in size and color. Friends, even a small detail like alternating colors can make such a huge difference!
Don’t you feel like you simply have to stick around to see all of the photos Carly Fuller Photography captured of the suite?! It’s safe to say, I wish I had received one in the mail! Thankfully, I have a sample to keep and show other couples with modern style!
