I have the privilege of designing stationery pieces and complete invitations suites for couples planning weddings at some of the prettiest venues in Philadelphia. I’m constantly hearing of new area venues where I would love to invite a couple’s guests to next. But, when the opportunity arises to create a suite for a couple planning a celebration outside of the area, I still always jump at the chance. That’s why we’re all taking a (virtual) trip to Connecticut today!
There are pretty wedding venues, and then there are wedding venues that cause your jaw to drop because they look like they’re straight out of a dream. The Wadsworth Mansion in Wallingford, Connecticut is definitely the latter. The Mansion boasts terraces, rose trellises, and secluded wood areas for your ceremony, and they note guests can “dine under dimly lit chandeliers” during your reception on their website. Plus, the Mansion looks downright regal! Settings like this one are why I continuously fall in love with stationery all over again because I start to envision the weddings couples, like Julia and Quinn, will enjoy at the location.
Julia and Quinn were married on October 8, 2017. They opted to host their ceremony at nearby Church of the Resurrection before welcoming their guests to Wadsworth Mansion shortly after. With their ceremony set in a charming New England town and a reception at such a lovely venue, gold foil was definitely in order.
When guests received their mail, they were greeted with Julia and Quinn’s script monogram, wedding date, and flourishes. The flourishes and digital printing were carried onto the inserts, but the main invitation was filled with luxury. Flourishes, block and script font, and more were all printed in gold foil. Plus, the invitation featured a layered design to make it feel more luxurious. The natural white matte stock layered onto purple metallic card stock allowed each detail and the color palette to stand out even more beautifully, plus it helped the suite to feel more elegant.
I adore this fall wedding suite, and I now officially have Wadsworth Mansion on my list of wedding venues to see in person! For now, I hope you enjoy these photos of Julia and Quinn’s invitation styled by Carly is Inspired and captured by Carly Fuller Photography.
