taylor + mark's copper and chocolate fall wedding invitation

Lauren Covington blind letterpress calligraphy copper envelope liner fall floral foil invitation letterpress orange wax seal wedding invitation

This wedding suite made me want to pull out cozy wool blankets and the spiked-apple cider right away! Taylor unabashedly loves orange which was a no-brainer to use for her fall wedding, and a not-so-secret tribute to her beloved Texas Longhorns. We ran with the  idea of using lots of copper, fall florals and romantic details for this black tie wedding.Fall Copper Foil Chocolate Wedding Invitation Black TieFirst impressions are important! The first thing guests would see when they opened the interior envelope was lined with a fall floral displaying sophisticated hues orange, wine, plum and forest green. True story: another client saw a sample of this envelope liner, grabbed it, and vowed to use the palette for her dining room renovation.
Fall Copper Foil Wedding Invitation Wax Seal Letterpress
On the invitation, we started with double-ply cotton paper and had it blind letter-pressed with a bundle of botanical florals. Debi Sementelli's Bellucia calligraphy font was foil-stamped in copper over the blind image and brought just the right amount of elegance and femininity to the suite. A chocolate wax seal with a custom monogram was affixed to the top added another layer texture to the main piece. For extra thickness, the invitation was duplexed with Stardream's Copper card stock paper.

The outer envelopes were addressed by Maureen Vickery of Pendance Studio. She sourced the perfect copper ink and calligraphy style to match our invitations. For the final packaging, we created a single copper bellyband with the same stock as the back of the invitation.
Copper Foil RSVP Envelope Fall Wedding Invitation Suite
By far, the response envelope was our favorite piece. It was copper-foil stamped with a detailed dogwood botanical and the couple's monogram. Although it was a little tricky to foil-print over the crease of the envelope, our amazing printers pulled it off and it was worth it. It's kind of a secret gift to yourself to have a pretty RSVP envelope -- you'll get gorgeous mail for weeks as the RSVP's roll in.
