From the moment we first started the design process, I knew Sandra and David’s custom wedding invitation suite would be one I would always describe as fun and elegant, especially because “A Sunday Kind of Love” really did happen on a Sunday. The day began with a ceremony at the historic Powel House that was kept private with Sandra and David’s family and closest friends being the only guests in attendance. Because the ceremony was so intimate, we opted to switch the formalities of the invitation. The reception details for the soiree at Cescaphe Event Group’s Down Town Club were printed on the main invitation piece, and the ceremony info was placed onto an insert. It’s a complete reversal from a traditional invitation, and the ability to make an invitation work well for the couple’s wedding day is what makes designing custom stationery so unique.
Aside from their wedding’s locations, Sandra and David’s color palette was at the top of their inspiration list. Notes of rose gold, blush, and nude was the perfect trio for a July summer wedding, but I love that the same three colors would be equally as beautiful during the winter! Once the color palette was in place, we opted for beautiful, romantic fonts. I’m very partial to the script! From there, I knew printing the invitation using light blush matte paper was a wonderful option because the gold foil stamped rose gold would pop beautifully. To add even more, the invitation was mounted onto a nude metallic colored pocket fold. Before completing the suite, all of the inserts were printed digitally and placed in the pocketfold. Then the piece was wrapped in a bellyband personalized with S+D’s names. I love the result!
