Your invitation might not make an appearance at your ceremony, but it's the first thing your guests see! The perfect invitation can capture the mood and spirit of your big day, and that makes it an integral element of your complete vision. We've checked in with some of our favorite clients after their wedding to give you a glimpse into their stories - what inspired their invitation design, and how it came to reflect the unique beauty of their wedding day.
JESSICA & steven
Jessica and Steven envisioned a wedding (and a wedding invitation) that would be like them – classically elegant, but unforgettably unique. They chose the beautiful Duke Mansion in Charlotte, North Carolina as their venue – its black and white floors and gold accents served as the inspiration for their invitation suite.
We began with their save the dates, featuring an engagement shot by Andy Chen of Indigo Photography. We designed a custom monogram with roses inspired by their wedding cake design. The blush pink color was chosen to complement Jessica’s bridesmaids’ dresses and floral arrangements.
We followed up the save the dates with a classic and refined formal invitation. Custom calligraphy by Sidney Vallon provided a clean elegance that’s hard to match. Here we stayed true to the black, white and gold theme of the Duke Mansion.

ERIN & KYLE
We were so excited to work with Erin and Kyle to design invitations for their intimate destination wedding at Les Mirandes in Montmoreau-Saint-Cybard, France. In their words, “we wanted our destination wedding to be timeless and romantic, drawing inspiration from our location throughout the event design process.”
With this in mind, we put a spin on our die-cut Moroccan-inspired invitation with an art deco typeface and a minty blue and navy color scheme to reflect the striking colors of their venue and create an elegant, vintage aesthetic. Erin and Kyle took it to the next level, presenting the invitation inside a navy blue gift box filled with light blue hydrangea petals and wrapped in mint green lace ribbon. We also created fans for guests at the ceremony, with a custom monogramed initial.
Many thanks to Katelyn James of Katelyn James Photography for allowing us to use her beautiful photos of the wedding and of the invitation!
