If you have stumbled across my blog, then you probably realize that I have a slight obsession with paper. I love fine quality paper, paper weight, texture, color. If it's metallic, linen finished or embossed. I truly love letterpress. Sigh. So a few months back when my lovely bridesmaid asked If I could design the paper goods for her wedding. I was thigh deep in designing my own and said hell yeah I'll do yours. I quickly came up with what I thought was 4 good ideas. I brought them over to her and let her pick one. She loved the one pictured above and, from there I designed the rest of her invitation ensemble. Since many of her guests are from out of town she wanted to make sure they had all the information they needed. So besides the RSVP card I included a map of the area, things to do while in town, and she wanted to include some history of the beautiful antebellum house they are getting married in. I was very happy to be of service. I think the end product came out really well. It seemed to be well received. I have to say I enjoyed seeing the blue and white envelope in my own mail box.
I thought I would share her invitations since this weekend is her wedding weekend and I am so very happy for her and her groom. I wish them all the happiness in the world and I can't wait to celebrate with them on one of the happiest days of their life.
I will also share the her ceremony programs that I made for her. I drew a sketch of the garden where she will be getting married for the cover in pen and ink. To match with the antique etching that came with the invitation.
