Michael + Breanna’s Antique Book Wedding Invitations

These vintage-inspired booklet wedding invitations from Jennifer Lane Graphic Design are beyond adorable.  Jennifer created the entire design around the couple’s love story, with elegant vintage inspired design elements and silhouette details.  So pretty!

From JenniferMichael and Breanna came to me looking for something totally different and unique for their elegant October wedding.  As soon as I heard their love story, I demanded that it be told to the world because it’s so stinkin’ cute!  This couple kept running into each other at different points in their lives throughout the course of several years and finally, became husband and wife in October of 2010!

For their invitation, I designed an antique book-inspired invitation that actually told their story in a few short chapters.  It includes a tear-wrenching dedication, a three chapter story (including all the times they ran into each other, as well as the oh-so-sweet proposal), invitation, directions/accommodations card, and a detachable RSVP postcard that can be torn off from the back and dropped in the mail.

There’s also a bookmark to invite those special guests to the rehearsal dinner and farewell BBQ after the wedding.

The tone of the piece was inspired by the couple’s vintage engagement shoot with a dress inspired by the 1930s.  The shoot was photographed by Rachael of Rachael Nicole Photography.  For their save the date, I designed a magnet with a personalized monogram.

The couple’s monogram was a visual representation of their story.  The swirls represent how they continued to run into each other at different points in their lives and the different roads they traveled, but ultimately how those roads lead them to each other (as the swirls lead to each other’s initials).  I combined some 1930s graphic design elements to capture the classic look and some contemporary elements as well.  These elements were then carried into the invitation.

Thank you so much Jennifer!
