Working with good friends on their wedding designs is so satisfying! My friends Lauren and Mike had a Chicago ceremony this fall and were looking for designs centered around the colors green, white, black and silver. They asked for a modern and vintage look with an emphasis on botanical prints. Once we decided on a gorgeous vintage print, we paired it with the right sans-serif typeface to set the tone for the big day.
We used a single vintage print throughout the save the date and invitation suite for coherence. The couple opted to letter press their invites, which added so much elegance to the design suite. We created a monogrammed badge for the invitation and wax seal for some subtle personalization. A map of Chicago and a list of favorite places to eat, drink, and stay in the Windy City was crafted for out of town guests. Strong typography + botanical print = timeless, effortless design.
This invitation suite was featured on the lifestyle and design blog Oh So Beautiful Paper in October 2017.
