As Kelly and Michael were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted romantic Texas Hill Country affair with the slightest touch of rusticity. If Marie Antoinette were to tie the knot in Texas, this would be her invitation...
For the invitation, we selected Crane's 100% cotton double-ply Lettra paper to achieve the best impression for letterpress printing and foil stamping. We used a dusty blue gray as the primary color, inspired by the muted tones of desert succulents and the bridesmaids dresses -- so chic!
The rich copper foil balanced out the lightness of the blue and was a subtle wink to the bride's alma mater's famous burnt orange... hook 'em horns.
We went full romance on the design by displaying gorgeous, sweeping calligraphy, surrounded by a structured border with vines sprouting in and around each corner. We wanted the vines to bring a masculine and organic element to the look, with no two corners alike.
