Right from the very onset of this project, Chelsea had a vision. Coming from a strong Italian background, she envisioned a Tuscan inspired wedding, from olive leaves to pops of wine-red. Creating an inspiration board for this wedding was easy: lovely, simple green details and lots of elegance. Looking at the inspiration next to this glimpse of Chelsea nad her bridal party's bouquets, she definitely nailed it! I am in Tuscan heaven!
She was looking for a traditional invitation with a classic combination of legible fonts. After lots of back and forth, we finally landed on this whispy script combined with a timeless serif font for all the critical details you want to be sure your guests can read! Wreath details were used throughout as well as a simple and elegant border.
When it all came together, printed on a velvety off-white ecru cardstock, these invitations were completely dreamy. There was no doubt that this was a going to be a classic, elegant wedding. She was looking for a traditional invitation with a classic combination of legible fonts
But, of course, the invitations were just the tip of the envelope!
After hand-addressing her envelopes to match the script on the invitations, I also designed many aspects of her day-of goods so that her event was branded and consistent throughout!
A tri-fold ceremony program welcomed guests at the traditional Catholic ceremony inside a historic cathedral. Later at the reception in a Skybox overlooking Idaho's foothills, the tables were elegantly set with coordination place cards, table numbers, gift tags and an Italian-inspired menu. Even the cocktail napkins bore the custom illustrated crest we created for the invitation!
With this a stunningly elegant wedding to start off their lives together, best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. Rauh! It is always such a pleasure to be part of someone's special day!
