Happy Monday everyone! How about some beautiful vintage-inspired wedding invitations to start off the week? This invitation suite from Nichole at Coral Pheasant features gold foil on pale pink paper, intricate lasercut details, and romantic calligraphy from MM Ink. What more could a girl possibly ask for??
From Nichole: The wedding celebration of Nicole and Patrick was held at Branford House, a turn-of-the-century mansion with carved Gothic paneling and grand Baroque fireplaces overlooking the Long Island Sound. The magnificent Gatsby-esque venue, combined with details from the bride’s stunning beaded gown and palette of purples, pinks and gold was all the inspiration needed to bring this stationery suite to life!
The invitations were gold foil stamped and letterpress printed on blush Arturo cotton stock – duplexed to make it extra thick. Deco-inspired fonts were paired with beautiful calligraphy by MM Ink. Each invitation was mounted into a custom designed laser cut violet folio. For a modern take on the inner envelope, the folios were wrapped with a gold shimmer belly band each bearing the guest’s name in calligraphy.
The entire package was slipped into a gold shimmer envelope lined in a scallop pattern that was inspired by the beading on the bride’s gown. The outside of the envelope was just as carefully considered as the invitation. A collection of vintage stamps in coordinating shades of pink and purple adorned the outside and further ornamentation was added by MM Ink‘s gorgeous penmanship.
For the day-of stationery, the laser cut folio was re–imagined as the cover for the wedding programs and an enlarged version of the die cut details card became the dinner menu. The welcome box contained sweet and salty snacks with coordinating labels and the cover of welcome booklet featured the scallop pattern used on the envelope liners. Nicole embraced every opportunity to bring elements of her invitation design to her celebration – and I adored her for that level of detail!
