AnnaLaura + Scott’s moody floral invitation suite
AnnaLaura and Scott were married at the Sutherland, and their fall wedding was the perfect mix of classic and modern.
For their invitation, we knew we wanted to use a burgundy paper. I created lush illustrations of AnnaLaura’s favorite flowers and used gold foil to create a really stunning ‘wow’ moment for the invite.
I also loved their reply card - it was just a traditional reply card, but in adding a deckled edge, we added a little interest and texture. I referenced that in their reply envelope, with the illustrations being cut off by a line, to make way for the address.
We went a little lighter for their accommodations card and featured an illustration of their wedding venue. I loved how the watercolor softened the whole look and added a little whimsy to their suite.
Probably my favorite element was their envelope liner. I knew I wanted to do something dark, floral and moody, but I wasn’t sure exactly how I would get the colors I wanted. I ultimately ended up scanning flowers from my then officemates Wylde, and combining them digitally, which gave the perfect moody, somewhat surreal look. Using something photorealistic and dark was such an unexpected touch, but I truly loved how it all came together.
We tied their suite together with a gold velvet ribbon and used a wax seal of their sweet husky dog to seal it all together, which I obviously think was just the best. Dogs on wax seals are truly my love language.
Congratulations AnnaLaura and Scott!
