Happy Monday everyone! And happy first official day of Summer! We’re starting the week with these gorgeous navy blue calligraphy elopement celebration invitations from Victoria at Design House of Moira, which feature Victoria’s beautiful calligraphy on equally stunning raw edge cotton paper. And that tagline: we fell in love, so we ran away. Utterly romantic and so perfect for an elopement celebration!
From Victoria: Working with Marina from Bustle Events, we designed this suite for an elopement celebration, using the phrase “we fell in love, so we ran away” as the theme. We really wanted to embrace the destination aspect of the celebration, tying in natural edges and shades of blue.
The invitation itself announces their elopement and invites guests to join them at the bride’s parents home upon their return home. We really loved the idea of using paper with a raw edge and choose to go with handmade 100% cotton rag paper from Fabulous Fancy Pants. We paired the handmade paper with slooping brush lettering, and paired it with a formal serif font.
I also hand painted a large piece of artwork for the bride in monochromatic blues, and used that artwork to be printed as their envelope liners. Each invitation suite was wrapped in hand dyed, hand frayed silk ribbon and tucked into a crisp white cotton envelope.
The address calligraphy matched the same brush lettering throughout the suite, paired with vintage stamps in shades of blue. Each envelope was sealed with a white wax seal with calligraphy detail.
The cocktail menus were printed on the same 100% cotton rag paper and featured a “his & hers” signature cocktail. We also created a larger scale artwork piece of the quote we used in the suite featuring the couple’s wax seal.
