Jessica + Jake’s Modern Winter Wedding Invitations

These soft and ethereal wedding invitations come to us from Megan at Ruby the Fox. Megan created these modern invitations for her cousin’s winter wedding in Chicago. A classic black and white color palette paired with kraft paper, soft peach details, and a few whimsical design elements complemented the industrial wedding venue while allowing the bride and groom’s personalities to shine through.

From MeganWhen Jessica, who happens to be my beautiful cousin, came to me to design a custom suite for her December 2013 wedding, I was incredibly flattered and beyond excited! Both she and her now husband, Jake, have fabulous eclectic taste and really wanted their personalities to come through in their paper goods. Planning a winter wedding in Chicago, they kept things soft, fresh and modern to play off their industrial venue.

The suite featured a blind debossed pattern on thick 220lb stock with painted edges as well as multiple elements incorporating kraft paper, hand-stamped belly bands, and a whimsical accommodations insert! We also included Jessy and Jake’s love for old records, and carried a circular record image throughout from response cards to cocktail napkins!
