“Black Tie” Wedding Invitation with a Burlap Twist

If I had to choose just one aspect of my job that is the absolute tops, it would be how I’m continuously inspired and challenged by my wonderful clients and the amazing ideas they have for their events.

Earlier this year, one of my brides came to me with the idea of creating an ultra elegant “black tie” wedding invitation…but without the black! She wanted to bring in some unique, rustic charm by using burlap instead. After meeting with the bride and her wedding planner (Beth Helmstetter, just further proof of her good taste), teaming up with Laura Hooper for the gorgeous calligraphy, and numerous burlap, ribbon, and paper swatches…this is where we ended up!
