Marcy + Edward’s Creative Art Museum Wedding Invitations

These gorgeous booklet wedding invitations come to us from Marcy over at Be Frank, an invitation studio in Philadelphia that Marcy runs with her business partner Jenny.  Marcy just got hitched a little over a week ago (congratulations Marcy!) and sent over photos of her invitations.  I love the way Marcy incorporated elements from the art museum reception venue throughout the invitation suite.

Art-Museum-Letterpress-Wedding-Invitations-Twine

From Marcy:  Creating these invitations was a blast!  I spent alot of time coming up with ideas on how to incorporate the art museum feel into the invites.  Since our reception is in a gallery at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, I love the feel of the white walls against the displayed artwork.  I wanted to reflect this in the invitations.

The saddle stitched invitation booklet contained all the wedding details.  I loved the idea of having everything contained in a book for easy reference.

Art-Museum-Letterpress-Wedding-Invitations-Silhouette Art-Museum-Letterpress-Wedding-Invitations-Silhouette-Booklet

The silhouette theme was carried through the rest of wedding pieces and the cover was letterpressed by Colleen of Cleanwash Letterpress in Philadelphia.  I was really happy with how they turned out!

Each of the RSVP cards displayed a unique painting that is part of the Academy’s permanent collection.  I was pleased with the pops of color the cards created against the solid colors of the book and the envelopes.

Congratulations Marcy!  The invitations are stunning!
