The concept behind this wedding invitation suite â€“ a venn diagram â€“ is just so completely perfect I can barely stand it. Â Lindsay and Ben have been a couple for more than a decade, so when it came time to create their wedding invitations they couldn’t imagine a symbol that would better represent their relationship and upcoming nuptials. Â From the bright color palette to the beautiful blind impression and overprinted letterpress elements, I’m loving every single detail from Lindsay and Ben’s invitations.
From Lindsay: Â In February of this year, my fiancÃ© Ben and I enlisted our close friend and Ben’s directing partnerÂ Nick Carbonaro to help us create an invitation suite that would capture our modern, upbeat aesthetic. The venn diagram became a way to mark our longtime union (we’ve been together for over ten years) and to celebrate the wonderful overlap that is our life together. Â Another friend noted that our invitation color scheme mimics the ziplock seal: fittingly, as we like to keep things fresh (both relationship-wise and design-wise) and we love snacks.
As our save-the-date postcard and invitation used the same venn diagram design, we wanted to do something a little different for our reply card. Â Using a tiny, hand-carvedÂ stamp from etsy seller little t jane, we created a California-themed (and happily rhyming) postcard.
Â We also carried the venn diagram into our wedding favors, wrapping small California state notebooks fromÂ Field Notes in butcher paper and stamping them with our initials. Â And most recently, we used two enormous stamps and primary color inks to make our thank you cards.
Just stunning Lindsay! Â And totally pitch perfectÂ from start to finish. Â Congratulations!
