Christy from Papertree Studio worked with photographer Jen Woodruff to create these eclectic jewel tone geometric wedding invitations with copper foil printing for Jen’s offbeat mid-week (so fun!) wedding. Christie incorporated geometric lines, multiple patterns, pops of copper, and a super cool marbled envelope liner to match Jen’s unique and modern aesthetic. I’m loving all the details in this suite!
From Christy: This past fall I was approached by a talented photographer in the industry, Jen Woodruff, to meet and discuss the vision she had for her offbeat Thursday wedding. Jen wasn’t finding anything she liked online so she decided custom was the way to go. After chatting with Jen, I had my fingers crossed that I would get to design her wedding invitations!
Jen wanted to use rich jewel tones paired with a metallic color and wanted to incorporate different patterns throughout her invitation suite. Jen really wanted her invitations to be unique and fun, but also high end. I couldn’t wait to get started! I began the design process with the invitation. I pulled in a very simple geometric line art drawing and decided on a rich green background with copper foil accents.
To add an element of surprise, we put a beautiful and colorful pattern on the back to pull in more colors that were in our palette. Also pulling details from that pattern, I designed the response card and details enclosure card. Both of the pieces also had the geometric pattern on the back.
The invitations were printed on a heavy 130lb white linen paper. I thought a rich navy outer envelope with a cool marble patterned envelope liner would add to the eclectic mix and decided to bring in that pink jewel tone again with the response envelope. I used a copper loose weave cotton ribbon from Studio Carta to complement the copper foil in the invitation.
