Pretty in Pink
Stop the presses. I had another post planned for today until this wedding invitation arrived in the mail. I had to share it with you immediately. Just look at this incredible invitation!!
The invitation was a long time coming which explains my excitement when it arrived today. Way back in the cold days of November (can you believe it's almost April?!), the Bride & Groom came to Koru Wedding Shoppe looking for an invitation for their June wedding. It was love at first sight when they saw the album Wedding One by Marsupial Invitations. They focused on a traditional pocket invitation shown in a dark gray/silver color scheme with a snowflake motif for a winter wedding. Clearly, not the right look for a June wedding.
The Bride & I worked together over the next three months before we finalized a design & look that matched her vision. She chose the blossom pink for her pocket & envelopes, a color I had only used as a backer before. She picked a mahogany backer for definition, a color I had used many times for the pocket, & matching mocha ink color. Rather than a motif, we chose a delicate design in pink to be placed on the side of each card behind the text. All in all, the look of this invitation was different than any I had previously done.
The invitation is light & airy, just perfect for a June wedding. The design is delicate, yet makes a statement. Pretty in pink indeed.
