When Margaret and Spenser came to me for their wedding invitations, I knew it was truly going to be a special suite. Spenser proposed to Margaret right after the solar eclipse in 2017. I think that’s honestly the best proposal story I have ever heard - seeing the total eclipse is such an emotional experience, and to become engaged to the love of your life right after? Just like… perfection!

They were getting married at a fairy tale-esque country club in Greenville, Delaware, so we knew we wanted the invitations to be refined and elegant, but also bring in their sweet proposal story.

I painted moonflowers as a subtle eclipse reference, and kept their letterpressed type refined and light.

I loved painting the map of the spots they loved in Greenville!

We tied the whole suite together with a deckled edge vellum wrap, and a lush silk bow.

My favorite element was the total eclipse of the sun stamps for the outer envelope, and the reply envelope! I know I’m hard on the USPS, but these stamps were the best, and I was so excited to use them for a project.

When you touch them, the heat of your finger reacts with the ink to reveal the moon! How cool is that! It was the perfect final touch, and I loved the reference to their love story.
