Fiddlehead Wedding

Can you feel it? Can you? It's the weather starting to change! I can't believe the summer is coming to an end, and I actually turned the heat on in my car yesterday. THE HEAT! I have a slew of summer wedding invitations I need to post in this blog before the weather gets the best of me, ha!

I have been waiting for today for a good long while. When Joyce first reached out to me a few months back about printing her wedding invitations, we had talked about many different design ideas-- all of which were centered around fiddle heads, a fern that she would be incorporating in her all of her wedding. I love fiddle heads, but goodness they are hard to design around! She also loved frames, so in Blush Design tradition, we gave her exactly what she wanted!

Everything was printed on the most beautiful and plushy 140lb cotton rag in a creamy white with a textured medium grey envelope. The invitation was printed in 3 colors for maximum pop: jewel toned purple, granny apple green, and cloud grey. We played with a few different elements, but that response card is by far one of my most favorites ever. You all know I love vertically oriented response cards! ;) I really went overboard with the fiddle heads and put them on the return envelope too-- I just love love love those.

We also printed place card tents and little 'cuteness' tags with website information that can be wrapped up in bakers twine that I got from Divine Twine {highly recommended, I LOVE their twine colors}.

I have to publicly declare something here-- this was a tough invitation suite for me to design, mostly because it required me thinking outside of the frame {ha, get it?} and I am SO incredibly fortunate that Joyce stuck with me through the entire thing. She was a GEM when I sent over countless proof of something that just wasn't perfect. When we found the design, I think we both knew it. These are so fun and playful-- and perfect for their wedding setting. To Joyce: You are a rockstar, and THANK you for being so patient!

To Joyce & Andrew: Congratulations!!!! I can't wait to see wedding pics!

Liz - I'm the one that should be thanking you for your patience throughout the design process. You always remained postive and upbeat with suggestions and look at the result of our work - simply beautiful! Everyone that has seen our invitations has used the same word to describe them - GORGEOUS!! You are not only a talented letterpresser but have a beautiful design aesthetic that can't be matched. Thank you for your hard work, we love, love, LOVE our invites.
