When Riley and Jimmy decided to elope earlier this year, they knew they wanted to send fun and non-traditional wedding announcements to their friends and family. Riley also happens to be a lead designer at Papellerie, so she knew she didn’t want to sacrifice on her wedding stationery. The resulting announcements feature beautiful brush style calligraphy, a floral background pattern, and a bold hot pink and gold color palette. So lovely!
From Riley: These are my own wedding announcements from earlier this year. Jimmy and I had started planning a wedding, and for me, the most important part of the whole thing (besides actually marrying him) were the flowers and paper goods. I had been gushing over my ideas with the other designers at Papellerie and had laid out plans for my save the dates with our in house calligrapher and illustrator, Alyssa. Then, kind of out of the blue, Jimmy and I decided to secretly elope and forgo the big wedding we were planning. I knew that I could still have my dream suite, even it if it was announcements instead of save the dates and invitations, and a floral background instead of actual flowers.
Jimmy and I are both really non-traditional and like to have fun, so I knew right away I wanted hot pink and gold. I really had fallen in love with this style of brush script lettering and I wanted to make sure that was incorporated into the design. I worked with Alyssa on the calligraphy style and it’s exactly what I hoped for!
The announcements were digitally printed on pearl white Crane lettra cotton paper by Infovine here in Houston, and then hand mounted onto gold shimmer card stock. The envelopes pull in the hot pink of the floral background and feature a gold shimmer paper envelope liner.
