Earlier this year I teamed up with a talented mix of folks to bring to life a rich, reinvented rustic vision dreamed up by Amy Champagne Events and captured by Charlotte Jenks Lewis. Collaborating with other creatives is a wonderful opportunity to explore new ideas, to challenge yourself, and to foster and build new relationships. This particular styled shoot was no exception. Inspired by vintage ski lodges and the classic copper cups of Moscow Mule fame, I got to work creating some copper and leather wedding invitation inspiration. –Nichole of Coral Pheasant
The wedding invitation suite features a mix of contrasting colors and textures. The invitation is laser etched script text on a sheet of cognac leather, the enclosure cards are accented with copper leaf detailing, and the outer envelope and liner bring in rich berry tones. The escort cards and several welcome and gift tags also feature laser etched text on cognac leather and were paired with deep cranberry red and burgundy ribbon.
Sara from Ink Revival adorned the cranberry red envelope with her gorgeous calligraphy in copper ink. She was able to match the font used in the suite to create a cohesive look.
One of my favorite elements from the paper story is the welcome box for wedding guests, a preview of a Moscow Mule station at the wedding reception. The welcome box features mini copper Moscow Mule cups and all the ingredients needed to make Moscow Mules — mini vodka bottles, ginger beer, and limes – and then a bit of relief if too many Mules are consumed!
