From Alex: Janice and Spencer have one of those love stories that you only see in the movies. In love in high school, separated for almost 10 years, only to then fall in love again years later when a friend organized them to be at the same New Years party.

Their wedding was set in a lavender field in Wiscasset, Maine at the stunning Marianmade Farms. To say it was a beautiful wedding is an understatement. Janice put her vision into every aspect of the wedding, and they both created magical moments all throughout the evening. Some examples include handmade paper florals, a watercolor backdrop for a photo booth, all of which came back to the colors we used in the invitation; lavender, copper, and emerald.

The most spectacular part of this suite was the inspiration. The bride wanted to emulate her parent’s invitation from 1973. The simplicity of this invitation, with the handmade paper, copper text, and hand torn edges, is something you don’t see too often nowadays and was an honor to use as part of this couple’s story.

Because the couple loves a certain modernity to their life and their special day, I opted for a modern font and added an illustration of the camper van that is situated on Marianmade Farm, in front of which they took their wedding portraits.

I foil stamped the invitation in the copper color, which was a beautiful contrast to the lavender hued paper. The RSVP card was our all time favorite, a small, almost circular tearing of the paper, with a matching envelope.

For the envelope, I scoured the internet for the perfect emerald color that the bride had envisioned. I found the most beautiful soft-touch emerald envelopes called Plike, and foil printed their return address stamp on the back. The finishing touch? Sarah Vaughan Stamps to throw in another rich color to the mix, and to nod to the couple’s love of jazz music.
