Ashley and Matt came to me as a referral from Rachel, my 2nd September wedding client. Ashely and Rachel work together and ended up having the same wedding date, and even have the same wedding colors – black and ivory! Black is definitely the color of September!
Ashley and Matt were looking for a more formal and traditional invitation, but also liked the idea of using vertical enclosures. They also liked the idea of using an ivory paper versus a bright white, to help incorporate the ivory more into the invitation. After being presented with the design options, they narrowed down the choices to this design.
This design is more traditional, but uses a serif font paired with a more modern script, adding just a hint of modern flare. The dense yet elegant floral design almost has a damask-style quality to it, to me it almost feels as though it could have been engraved. The couple chose a very pretty ivory textured paper paired with a black vertical enclosure and ivory metallic envelopes. The enclosures were sealed with a monogram sticker. Overall the final package is really elegant. My favorite part of this invitation is how the floral element spills over onto each of the cards in the lower pocket.
As always, I love how these turned out, and even though Rachel and Ashley have the same wedding date and colors, I am happy to say that I was able to help them achieve very different looks for their invitations. BB10 Creative stands out for that reason – each invitation is custom to YOUR wedding so no one will ever have the same invitation. If you know someone getting married next year who is looking for a unique design, send them my way! 2011 is starting to fill up fast!
