A few weeks ago, I came across these gorgeous silhouette wedding invitations created by Meg at Low Country Press – and immediately fell in love with the entire suite. The design was inspired by the professions of the bride and groom (teacher and welder, respectively), with hand rendered illustrations of icons from their careers and silhouettes of the couple. Meg was kind enough to share some additional images of this beautiful invitation suite courtesy of Elk Photo and Jade + Matthew Take Pictures, so let’s take a look!
From Meg: Jazmin and Charles both have a passion for what they do – she’s a teacher and he’s a welder – as well as for life, and ultimately each other. They wanted to bring that to life through their stationery suite by including custom silhouettes as well as icons to represent what they do: a ruler, apple, and books for her teaching, and a welding mask, tool box, and spark for his welding. The invitations were a true first impression for the wedding, which included a photobooth complete with chalkboard backdrop and welding equipment as props.
The gray and yellow color palette represented both the bride and groom – inspired by bright yellow school buses and industrial metal. We incorporated the color palette not only through the ink colors, but the corresponding envelopes as well. The envelopes also carried over the silhouettes from the invitation.
The invitation itself was printed on 220 lb Crane Lettra Bright White paper, giving the two color design beautiful letterpress impressions. They saved money by printing the corresponding pieces, including the RSVP card and a map, digitally. Overall, the suite reflected the happiness and love of the couple through what they do, and each other, shown through my love of paper goods.
So pretty! You can check out more from Low Country Press right here!
