EarÂlier this year IÂ teamed up with aÂ talÂented mix of folks to bring to life aÂ rich, reinÂvented rusÂtic vision dreamed up by Amy ChamÂpagne Events and capÂtured by CharÂlotte 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 vinÂtage ski lodges and the clasÂsic copÂper cups of Moscow Mule fame, I got to work creÂatÂing some copper and leather wedding invitation inspiration.Â â€“Nichole of Coral Pheasant
The weddingÂ invitation suite features aÂ mix of conÂtrastÂing colÂors and texÂtures. The inviÂtaÂtion is laser etched script text on a sheet of cognac leather, the encloÂsure cards are accented with copÂper leaf detailÂing, and the outer enveÂlope and liner bring in rich berry tones. The escort cards and several welcome and gift tags also featureÂ laser etched text on cognac leather and were paired with deep cranberry red and burgundy ribbon.
Sara from Ink Revival adorned the cranberry red enveÂlope with her gorÂgeous calÂligÂraÂphy in copÂper ink. She was able to match the font used in the suite to create a cohesive look.
One of my favorite eleÂments from the paper story is the welÂcome box for wedding guests, a preview of a Moscow Mule station at the wedding reception. The welcome boxÂ feaÂtures mini copÂper Moscow Mule cups and all the ingreÂdiÂents needed to make Moscow Mulesâ€‰â€”â€‰mini vodka bottles, ginger beer, and limes â€“ and then a bit of relief if too many Mules are consumed!
