Traditional, classic, timeless, with a touch of glam. Those were the words that Megan and Ross gave me to describe their ideal wedding invitation stationery suite. I loved the idea. All of the suites I have worked on thus far were very art forward and colorful. I was ready to take a more simple approach to wedding stationery and was very excited to get to work.
Megan, Ross, and I sat down together to meet and discuss specifically what they were looking for. If my Brides and Grooms are local, I LOVE to sit and meet with them. It's important for me to create a relationship with my clients; I want to give them an exceptional product as well as an enjoyable experience. I loved that Megan and Ross were such fun clients to work with and talk to; we even met for a beer to discuss papers! How awesome is that?!
This invitation suite was all about classic lines and beautiful type. With that in mind, we collaborated to pick simple, serif typography that paired well with a traditional script typeface. Then, I worked to highlight those elements with pops of gold and a rich black.
A custom map of Cape Cod was incorporated into the suite and added more of a hand-done element to the invitations which complimented the sleek design.
It was such a wonderful experience to work with Megan and Ross; they are an amazing couple who both always have smiles on their faces. I cannot believe that their wedding day is only a week away! I hope that they enjoy every moment; just as I enjoyed every moment working on their custom stationery suite.
