Allison reached out to me last summer to create a custom invitation and we put together something special for her wedding paper goods. She liked the Sunset Sky invitation and the Salty Air invitation, so we combined the two so it was totally customized just for this couple. The envelopes were in a blush pink and they each had their own artwork-lobster buoys for the large outer envelope and the reply envelope had the adirondack chairs in gold. The envelope calligraphy was in gold. The reply card was in the sunset sky style, and there were gold adirondack chairs on the reception card.
For the wedding day, we carried the Sunset Sky design theme throughout. From menus to escort cards with white calligraphy, this colorful design was a perfect match for Allison and Aaron's gold and pink decor. We also created gift tags with the gold adirondack chairs for the favors.
Allison had me write the names of the bridesmaids in gold calligraphy on the cute bags she was giving them as a gift. Along with that was a special card with gold calligraphy on the envelope.
A couple of sentimental details of note: The tulle around the photographed invitation is from Allison's wedding dress and the blanket in that invitation layout was made for the couple by Aaron's 96 year old grandmother.
Working with Allison was a real treat. We are so happy that we were able to bring her wedding day stationery vision to life! It's now been a year since Allison and Aaron's Maine coast wedding! Happy Anniversary to you both!
Thank you Allison for your kind words:
"Working with El was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process. They say your wedding invitations are a sneak peek for your guests into your wedding day and the invitation suite El created for us couldn't have reflected that more perfectly. For many of our guests, Maine was a distance to travel so we wanted to give them a glimpse of the beautiful place by the sea we call home while also incorporating our wedding color scheme. El truly made our vision come to life and we couldn't have been happier with the end result. I'm also so grateful for how El kept me organized throughout the invitation timeline process and she handled every aspect so seamlessly. El and Bob make such a great team together and Aaron and I really had such a fun time working with them. We're so lucky we found El to add such beautiful touches to our special day and we can't wait to work with her again for other stationery needs. Thank you El!"
