Real Wedding: Theresa and Chris

I will very rarely admit to favoritism of any kind when it comes to design projects that I tackle or with clients that I work with. Each project is one of my babies and of course each client is a super duper vip in my book. However, there are times when I just can't help myself and I have to readily admit that a client and project was one of my favorites. That was the case with Theresa and Chris.

From the second that I met Theresa, I could tell that her great energy and positive vibes were absolutely infectious. We got to work immediately creating a beautiful custom invitation and stationery collection that would make the perfect statement and set the mood for her gorgeous wedding at the New York Botanical Garden. Her colors were fantastic with warm shades of tangerine, orange and umber with hits of gold and we borrowed elements from her centerpieces and bouquet flowers as well as the beautiful venue. Both her and Chris were graceful, kind and well grounded throughout the entire process and it's such a pleasure to see that all their dreams were realized by their talented team of vendors.

 And of course, the wedding save the dates, invitations and reception stationery we created for them...

The entire Set was made up of rich tangerines and oranges letterpress printed on shimmery gold leaf paper. The orange bellyband and envelope brought out a vibrant pop of color to contrast the gold.
The Save The Dates reversed the gold and orange scheme to make orange the dominant color on lovely square shaped cards.
I absolutely loved the rich detail of these vintage rose engraved illustrations

There's something so sublime and luxurious about nice deep letterpress impressions. You can see some of that definition in this detailing..
Congratulations to Theresa and Chris on a beautiful wedding and marriage together!
