It’s always a treat when I get to feature invitations for a wedding in my home city of Washington, DC, and this invitation is made even more special by the fact that the couple became engaged shortly after same-sex marriage was legalized here in DC. Kari from SugarB StudioÂ created a lovely modern design that emphasized the love both between Ralph and Drew but also between the couple and their guests. Such a beautiful idea!
From Kari: Ralph and Drew are an amazing couple, who people fall in love with immediately. They were engaged soon after same-sex marriage became legal in the District of Columbia. When we met to discuss their wedding invitation, we were chatting and laughing at the idea of adding “Because You Love Us” onto the wedding invitation. We soon realized that it was a cute and funny way to put a twist on their anything-but-traditional wedding invitation.
I loved how this modern design paired nicely with letterpress. I chose 220# Crane Lettra so that we could print on both sides of the invitation. The sturdy paper made quite the impression on the recipients. Ralph and Drew loved the idea of printing everyone’s name on the invitation to portray how important their friends and family are in their lives and how they too were a part of their union.
