Navy and gold is such a classic color combination – but add coral and it instantly becomes modern! Jenny C Design created these invitations for a wedding at an historic casino-turned-museum in upstate New York. The invitations feature details inspired by the museum’s architecture along with bright pops of coral. Jenny even incorporated some sophisticated casino-inspired details into the day-of wedding stationery!
From Jenny: Sarah and Winston’s wedding took place in Saratoga Springs, New York. They both lived in NYC, and about 95% of their guests would be from out of town. They really wanted their wedding invitations to evoke the feeling of their venue – the Historic Canfield Casino – and what fun the entire wedding weekend would be for everyone!
Sarah and Winston were inspired by the history and architecture of the Canfield Casino (once a casino, now the city’s preeminent event space and historical museum). The border on the letterpress invitation and certain design elements throughout the suite are reminiscent of the those architectural details.
The envelope liner and coral edging adds a perfect pop of color! Mini information cards about the rest of the weekend were placed in a fun navy stripe and coral envelope.
We continued the casino inspired theme, in an elegant way, into their day-of stationery items. Sarah and Winston’s ceremony program was shaped liked a deck of cards. On the back was a custom playing card design, with their monogram and design elements from the invitation incorporated into it. Their escort cards were shaped and designed to look like poker chips, displayed with dice glued on the back of each card so they would stand.
