This custom design for Makenzie and Tyler's September Seattle wedding was inspired by their love of of the outdoors and their relaxed Midwestern personalities. Makenzie, partner behind the marketing firm Davies + Dixon, and Tyler, a Seattle real estate agent, were very hands-off after the initial brainstorming process, preferring to be surprised with the final result. Their wedding location is the scenic Bainbridge Island, just thirty minutes west of Seattle by ferry.
The bride's single request was to have a crisp white wedding invitation with gold foil lettering, to bring her glamorous side to their outdoor Labor Day weekend wedding stationery. To add some complimentary colors to this central piece, we brought in rich navy, gray, yellow and orange hues from our Seattle inspired mood board. The travel-themed RSVP postcard features a sunset shot of the ferry route guests will take on their way to the wedding site, and was finished with a romantic quote from Sleepless in Seattle. The map was printed on a textured paper and provided guests with a visual of how the ferry system works– essential for the large group, most of whom had never visited Seattle before. Additionally, it explained which neighborhoods to check out, restaurant and hotel recommendations, and what weather to expect. The cream-colored envelope was lined with a beautiful navy and gold wrapping paper by Rifle Paper Co.
