i am beyond excited to show you this wedding! this was calliespondence’s first soup to nuts wedding project and brings a little tear to my eye every time i gaze at the pictures of the invitation suite. we worked with the fabulous (and laid-back to boot) bride on invitations, programs and thank you cards. it was the most fun, and serena was an absolute dream to work with. she is a friend of heidi’s, who you saw in pictures from my prior life in san diego, and attended college with serena. they now both reside in NYC – so serena and i had a kickoff phone conversation, then traded lengthy emails and fun mail packages to exchange ideas, proofs, edits, you name it. it worked out so well, and i made a new friend along with gaining one of my favorite additions to the calliespondence portfolio. if that’s not a win-win, i don’t know what is!
serena and eric were married last april at the audubon naturalist society, close to where serena grew up in washington, d.c. her color palette was navy blue, yellow and clover green, and was paired with an avian theme. i think it was a perfect mix of season, location, colors and theme! i think you’ll agree too when you see the wedding pictures below…but first, here are the beauty shots of her paper items.
we tied a piece of yellow rick-rack around the invitation, and slid the rsvp postcard under it…i just love it when an invitation looks like a parcel or a gift.
the entire invitation package, complete with custom wrap-around address labels…
the bird graphic was printed via lithography (high-quality flat print) and the invitation text was printed in thermography…the two methods resulted in a very luxe feel.
programs carried through the bird motif and the rick-rack from the invitation…
thank you notes were printed in thermography, mounted on green cardstock and paired with white envelopes lined with navy blue paper. mmm.
and now for pictures of the beautiful big day…
so could that affair have been any more lovely? i think not. this wedding is a perfect example of how you can use the invitation to truly set the tone for the wedding day…style, colors, formality (or informality)…all of it. that last picture is my favorite…i think it was taken right after the ceremony, and i love the “holy s*&% we just got married?!” giddy laughs.
congratulations serena and eric!!!
