Melissa + Jordan’s Modern Silhouette Wedding Invitations

When it came time to design his own wedding invitations and save the dates, art director Jordan Eakin was inspired by the union of two family trees.  Jordan partnered with Sarah from Shed Letterpress to create a trifold invitation, with the invitation text mirrored by their silhouettes and a bit of personal family history.  Clean and minimal RSVP and accommodation cards completed the suite, all contained within the trifold and secured with a belly band with a quote from Emily Brontë (and one of my personal favorites!).

From Jordan: Our wedding package design was influenced by old family trees, books, cameos, antique silhouettes and a lovely pantone swatch.  We designed the invitation to represent our two family trees coming together and added our own cameos and silhouettes as a classic, timeless touch.

The trifold invitation was printed at Shed Letterpress in Durham, NC on 100% cotton, acid-free Rising Museum Barrier paper.

Thanks Jordan!

  1. I think the “trifold” with the silhouettes is actually a bi-fold (tri-panel), unless there is a panel that is not seen in the pictures. Trifolds have 4 panels/3 folds; bifolds have 3 panels/2 folds.
