As a stationery designer, I’m constantly exposed to a complete variety of fonts. And, every font has a theme and its own story. Some feel more whimsical, while others are far more elegant. Of course, there are fonts that fall somewhere in between! Today’s wedding invitation suite is inspired by fonts, colors, and details and how important it is to discover the ways in which they intersect best.
When I was working with Nicole and Brian to design their pocketfold wedding invitation suite, they both mentioned how much they loved Angela and Blake’s suite. Creating something new from an already existing invitation still allows for creativity, which is why I’m always excited to create semi custom wedding invitation suites! So, we took A+B’s suite to heart, and then we made some changes.
Nicole and Brian’s wedding ceremony at Holy Cross Church in Springfield, Pennsylvania coupled with their Tendenza wedding reception meant we had to toe the line between timeless and modern with a hint of whimsy. Where Angela and Brian’s suite featured black, ivory, and gold, white, black, and gold felt more in line with Nicole and Brian’s style. Because we were telling the story of a different wedding, we also adjusted the fonts, particularly the script style font that spelled out the couple’s names on the main piece of the invitation. Angela and Brian’s font felt slightly more modern and whimsical – it felt much more like them.
Through this semi custom wedding invitation design, we made changes and explored how Angela and Brian’s story could be told best through their paper pieces. I think we captured their story fabulously, and I hope you will agree after you take a peek at the photos Haley Richter Photography took of A+B’s suite.
