Behind the Scenes: Keridy and Geoff

Last summer we had the great pleasure of designing wedding invitations for dear friends of ours, Keridy & Geoff. Keridy and Steve have known each other since elementary school so it was such an honor, not to mention very exciting to create bespoke invitations that would perfectly capture the unique wedding they were planning at an authentic ranch in Montana. Although they're both New Yorkers, they had purchased a home in Montana and were so excited to share this new experience and chapter of their lives with all their guests.

So one of the first things we did was talk about Montana and their exciting new home, which we found out had the most amazing mountain view you can imagine! It's no surprise that we all decided that this mountain view needed to appear somewhere on the invitation! In addition to the sprawling view, it was so much fun incorporating lots of authentic ranch elements and Montana inspired ephemera throughout the suite. The result was delightfully personal and unique!

Take a look at our behind the scenes journey from beginning to end!

Exotic Luxury Inspirations and Invitations

I absolutely adore luxurious textures and patterns, especially exotic skins (like python and croc!) and leather. They have the ability to accentuate just about any object or accessory to a new height of luxury. I'm always looking to the latest runway trends and lookbooks to inspire my designs. Recently, Gucci, Hunting Season and Kara Ross have been some of my favorite designers to incorporate luscious exotic prints and textures into their creations and it's no surprise that the art of Tannery has also inspired some of our custom wedding invitation pieces as well! So today I would love to share with you some of my latest inspirations and obsessions as well as two of our most current, fashion forward invitation suites that bring the concept of couture to a whole new level.

Real Wedding: Chandelier Glamour

Every year we get to work with couples from all over the world, with different unique personal styles, aesthetics, weddings and venues. We've created classic invitations, rustic invitations, modern and edgy ones but every so often I'll get a couple whose vision for their wedding invitations will complement my very own passion for glamorous style and design. Lisa and Joe, whose gorgeous laser cut wedding invitations we featured on our Invitation Inspiration: Chandeliers post, were looking to do just that. I'm excited to share with you their wedding, a romantic and visually stunning affair which took place at the Ashford Estate in New Jersey. You'll also be able to see the beautiful chandelier monogram we created for them sprinkled throughout the details. Enjoy!

I loved Lisa's gorgeous lace Christian Louboutins. They're the perfect infusion of edgy runway glamour into her romantic look.

Look at how our gold and silver foil stamped chandeliers perfectly complemented the glitz and glimmer in the room! I just love how they used pink lighting to add drama! We added our own pink detailing on the invitation on the invitation edges and hot pink calligraphy. Now there's a way to make a statement!

If you haven't already seen our behind the scenes and inspiration for the invitation suite we designed for Lisa and Joe, check out our Invitation Inspiration: Chandeliers post that features this gorgeous couture design!
