Up next we have a fall themed wedding invitation! I had previously blogged about Susan and Aric’s wedding in my Save the Date post. Susan is a good friend from my college days at Marquette and I was so honored to be helping out with her wedding materials and couldn’t wait for her big day! Susan had a very specific idea in mind when she first came to BB10 Creative for her invitations. The ceremony and reception took place at a resort in northern Wisconsin where Susan has been going on family vacations her whole life. So naturally she wanted to incorporate a design that would reflect the location while still being elegant enough for a wedding. Specifically, she was very interested in incorporating designs with birch trees or birch bark.
The final design Susan and Aric decided on uses this elegant birch tree design that includes their wedding colors of charcoal gray with yellow accents. We used a more formal script font paired with an elegant serif for the text, and printed the invitation on a clean white linen cardstock. The invitation is mounted on a metallic charcoal gray vertical pocket enclosure and was sealed shut with a custom sticker using the birch tree design. The whole package was mailed in a matching charcoal gray metallic envelope that Susan had addressed by a professional calligrapher.
As a side note, I do often get asked if BB10 Creative offers hand addressing or calligraphy. While we do offer mailing services, we do not offer hand addressing, and our invitations are mailed out either using labels or printing directly on the envelope, depending on the materials used.
Back to Susan and Aric! Overall, I was really pleased with how this invitation turned out. It may be hard to see in the pictures, but the subtle shading on the birch trees with the yellow leaves ended up being the perfect elegant design for their theme. I was also lucky enough to be one of the guests in attendance at the beautiful wedding and thought I would post some additional photos to show how Susan tied the theme all together.
Leaf shaped place cards were hung from these tree branches with ribbon. So elegant!
