Chris + Yelena’s Gilded Parisian Wedding Invitations

I’m always so excited when Margot from Atelier Isabey sends over one of her custom wedding invitation designs because I know it’s going to be super creative and unique. Case and point: these romantic invitations for a wedding in Paris! The invitation suite combines gold foil and black letterpress printed text along with a booklet full of important info for guests. Stunning!


From Margot: Weddings don’t get any more romantic and glamorous than in Paris so we wanted to set the tone with an invitation that captured a truly classic Parisian feel in a fresh, updated way. We tried to stay away from anything too kitschy or cliché and focused on making the suite feel French and Parisian with understated references to the city of lights and with elegant photography and graphics.



Yelena, the bride, was originally from Russia and loved all things luxurious and ornate, Chris on the other hand had a more modern and minimalist, Philippe Starck aesthetic. We merged their individual styles right in the middle and accentuated the design with a multitude of luxe print methods, details and finishings.


The invitation card is printed in gold foil and black letterpress on ultra thick stock with gilded edges. It is paired with a booklet (also with gilded edges) which outlines the itinerary, information and details all designed in a contemporary editorial style with bold typography and crisp photography.



Both of these pieces slide into a stark white sleeve accented with a sculpture embossed coat of arms designed specially for them. To finish the entire look we designed a custom gusseted envelope with a thick spine and contoured flap to house the contents within.


Thanks Margot!
