Leah & Adam's String of Lights invites

Read more about these invites on Oh So Beautiful Paper.

It's always such a pleasure to work with clients that have a fairly clear idea of what they want as well as having a style that I love to work with! Leah first was inspired by a post on Oh So Beautiful Paper of a fabulous kraft save the date card. So we took that as inspiration to start and used the tri-fold with photo idea and made it fit her style. The photo in the save the date is by Bonnie Sen. (you can see some of the fabulous photos of Leah & Adam's backyard wedding at the link).

The whole suite consisted of a combination of fluorescent white cotton paper, kraft chipboard and envelopes, steel gray ink, accented with the elegance of Betsy Dunlap's calligraphy. Leah loves Betsy's work so we commissioned her to do the names and a few other pieces. Leah and Adam's wedding was held outside in a beautiful backyard, with lots of lights strung about in the tall trees. We went with strings of lights as the main illustration for the invitation suite. 

For the post-wedding pieces, the couple made mixed CDs to give away as favors to their guests so we printed CD sleeves. And thank you notes were important for the post-wedding etiquette.

A variation of the design is now available as one of our new pieces in the Blackbird Wedding 
Collection! Also check out another new design in the collection, the Scalloped Suite.
