I have been wanting to design an invitation solely based on using a monogram for a while now but wanted to keep it fresh and modern. After a few intial designs, I settled on incorporating circles to frame the monogram against the rounded frame of the invitation...mixing the two shapes. I love the simplicity of this design and would be perfect for a couple looking for a monogram that is more modern than vintage.
Kim and Ben came to me last year in search for invitations using a symbol Ben had created. The symbol incorporates quite a few details important to Kim and Ben, specifically the shape. If you are from Baltimore, you might notice the shape of the symbol is Ft. McHenry, where the couple had their first date. The symbol was used fully on the invitation and menu cards, and broken apart for the rest of the pieces to create a fun and energetic look for their stationery. I had the opportunity to design their save the dates, invitations, rehearsal invites, and reception items; including menus, place cards and table cards.
Renea is marrying the son of one of my mother's friends, so I was happy to design their invitations for their August wedding. Renea came with a specific idea of what she wanted, but very open to other ideas. Her colors of magenta and black I knew would work well with any design, especially since she wanted some type flowers on the invitations as well. I suggested a peony which she immediately loved. I had quite a few crystals left over from a previous invitation, so I used them to separate the ceremony information from the reception information as a unexpected touch. Coming up in a few weeks will be Renea's ceremony programs.
I especially love the return address on the envelope..."The Future Mr. and Mrs."
Justified is perhaps one of the most popular designs in the collection, for it's bold typographic approach to an invitation. Every bride who has picked this design is looking for something modern and contemporary and something not so traditional.
KC and Chris came to me knowing they wanted this design after seeing it on the website. These invitations are a bold statements that fits perfectly with KC's ideas for her wedding... a laid-back, fun party at the Evergreen Mansion in July. Their color palette of tangerine and lime worked perfectly with the design. Stay tuned for their ceremony programs.
