Sarah + Michael’s Vintage-Inspired Wedding Invitations

Alexandra from The Aerialist Press sent over these elegant vintage-inspired wedding invitations, and they seemed like the perfect way to help end the week!  Alexandra was inspired by the concept of the 1902s Great Gatsby era and wanted to give her clients a design that is classic yet a little bit playful.

From Alexandra: This invitation suite was inspired by the novel The Great Gatsby and the era in which Fitzgerald’s story took place. The couple really wanted a suite that was simultaneously classic and vintage with a playful edge.

I like to think of the ’20s in Long Island as sort of decadent, theatrical and elegant with a twist.  When creating the suite we really wanted to capture that feeling as well as the wildness of Jay Gatsby’s parties as detailed so sharply in the book and his abiding infatuation and love for Daisy.  The bellyband ended up being our favorite part and really finished off the whole look.

The suite was printed on 110lb Pearl White Crane Lettra paper, the inks are metallic silver and black and we used the Engravers Shaded, Burgues, and Mrs. Eaves fonts (I can’t resist listing these since I’m a not-so-shy type nerd).  The envelope liner stock was sourced from Papermojo.

Thanks Alexandra!
