The sweetest thing as a business owner is when you have the great pleasure of working with people you know. And, I have known Emily and Adam for years! We all grew up in the same town together, went to the same high school, plus Emily and I played tennis together. I even remember how Emily’s mom used to cheer us on during our matches from the stands. These two are special.
When Emily and Adam contacted me to design their wedding invitation suite for their celebration at Weymouth Center for the Arts in North Carolina, I didn’t hesitate for a moment. Emily had a complete Pinterest board in the works. Her design aesthetic leaned toward whimsical, and she also had a fair number of classical details that would add a dash of elegance. Plus, their venue featured gardens perfect for a ceremony and indoor spaces in the historic home for the reception. Needless to say, I had plenty of inspiration, and I loved how curated it all felt!
Emily is drawn to pink and gold, so I incorporated both colors into their suite. I created a triple layer wedding invitation. The suite featured a layer of cream colored cotton paper printed using gold foil, a layer of gold mirror paper, and a final layer of blush matte card stock. Inserts were printed digitally, and the suite was held together with a blush matte bellyband. As a final touch, Emily and Adam’s monogram sat on top in gold foil, and the suite was placed inside an envelope with a blush liner inside and calligraphy by Myrtle and Lloyd outside.
Emily, after working with your sister Abby on her invitations, it was such a joy to reunite once more on a special project for you! With such a pretty suite and two kind people celebrating their marriage, I can only imagine how beautiful your April 22, 2018 soiree was in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
