I had the pleasure of working with my friend and jewelry designer Rannie Balias, to create a one-of-a-kind-wedding invitation inspired by the ceremony venue, James Turrell's Live Oak Friends Meeting in Houston, Texas.
Rannie and I share a love for Futura, the color grey, and neutral metallics. Thinking about Turrell's skyspace, it was important for light to interact with the invitation. We started with a square shape, mixing matte and metallic papers, with touches of geometric shapes throughout the suite. The invitation itself had a matt grey jacket with a blade-cut 'skyspace' to showcase the bride and grooms' names.
Rannie and Asher united under the skypace on their wedding day.
The ceremony invitation wording was printed on colorless vellum paper, that had sparse speckles of iridescent hexagonal glitter.
The festive ceremony card was printed on aquamarine Stardream paper, cut with a circle of triangles in the center. Triangles are a common theme in Rannie's jewelry and have special meaning to Rannie and Asher's engagement story.
Matching the invite jacket, the response card is minimal and grey offset with a sandy gold metallic envelope.
Opa! The bride and groom being showered by friends, family and lovely daylight from the skyspace.
