Here they are: pictures of the eco-industrial-chic invitation we designed for The Look of Love! It was such an amazing event, working with Lindsay from LVL Weddings & Events, Aly from The Vine’s Leaf, and Emily and Kristin from Bliss by Blue Sky’s Photography, not to mention meeting so many lovely couples. I absolutely CANNOT wait for the photos from Bliss so you can see Lindsay’s amazing tablescape and Aly’s show-stopping hanging floral centerpiece (yes, I said hanging centerpiece)!
For the stationery suite, I really wanted to play with chalkboard signage because I love how it has that industrial vibe yet is still warm and inviting. The chalkboard effect was center stage on Rachel & Noah’s save the dates, but I also wanted to provide a little hint to the invitation to come by backing these with the same natural linen fabric we used on the invites.
This was such a fun project to work on because it was a perfect opportunity to try something I’ve always wanted to do: custom hand-stamped fabric folders! The couple’s custom monogram was inked in purple and metallic gold to create an ombre effect for the front of our handmade linen folder.
For a slight twist on the ribbon accent, I sewed a thin satin ribbon down the spine of the fabric folder, giving the invitation the feel of a vintage book. I decided to keep the printed pieces simple and in black and white, a more formal look but still in the same vein as our chalkboard theme.
The event stationery was a great opportunity to bring the chalkboard look back! Not only did we have chalkboard style menus, we had individual chalkboard style place cards and drink & cheeseboard signage that were mounted on hand-torn linen so it had these wonderful frayed edges.
Like I said…cannot wait for the event photos so you can see how the inspiration space all came together!
