we are continuously drawn the timeless aesthetic found in classic designs. the clean lines and ‘simplicity’ create a seemingly effortless beauty…think about all those mid century modern pieces of furniture. but the simplest things are often the hardest to create because your eyes are not distracted by a bunch of fluff and the details really matter. last fall, i had the opportunity to work with siobhan and raleigh (2 of more nearest and dearest friends) to create a complete suite that tied into their virginia vineyard wedding.
siobhan and raleigh wanted to create a feeling of elegance with a touch of fun. they wanted to be able to look back at the paper suite on their 50th anniversary and still love every part of it. imagine our parents’ generation looking through wedding photos today laughing at permed hair, baby blue tuxes, and billowing/poufy (long) sleeves…one of a wedding couples biggest fears. and yes, my parents had all of the above in their wedding album.
the invitations were simple without too much ornament or fuss. i worked with bon and raleigh to choose complimentary fonts that would embody their elegant yet fun personalities. we included their wreath/seal ‘monogram’ on the reply card (and also many day of materials) and added the spunk on the illustrated map.
i was so thrilled to be a part of their big day and am just sorry it’s taken me so long to finally create this blog post!
