A ROMANTIC AFFAIR

Seldom do we see a wedding execute a cohesive color palette and aesthetic as thorough as this one did. So much thought and attention to detail went into Maria and Chris's wedding day. The texture of the paper matched the raw texture of the linen cake backdrop. The elegant and soft bridesmaids dresses and the organic shapes of the bouquets and centerpieces...It was all done with such care. To give you an idea of how much planning and detail goes into custom invitations, let's take you back to the beginning of each job: we always start with the color palette. Asking the couple which shades they're using in their florals, the tones of woods and metals...we ask them to paint a scene for us so we can capture that in all of their stationery. With this romantic affair, we worked with the subtlest blush color for the envelopes, silk ribbon and pressed type to add a softer contrast against the matte gold foil for an impactful finish. And it's so amazing to see how this color palette unfolded throughout their wedding day - with bold pinks and greens in their flowers and table displays to bring in the celebratory feel of a wedding. Scroll through and you'll see what I'm talking about and the amazing team that helped it all come together!
