Kate and Mike wed at Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Virginia last October! We were so excited to work with Kate on her wedding stationery! She approached us with a very cohesive vision for her overall wedding and stationery. She wanted southern and romantic design with a touch of rustic elements. She also wanted to incorporate a logo or motif throughout their stationery. From there, we started brainstorming!
The beginning stages of the design process are always the most fun. It’s an opportunity to experiment and throw out various ideas. Some stick, some don’t. Our design process is very collaborative and involves various conversations with the client (via email or phone). As turns out, the willow tree at the ceremony site at Trump Winery is very special to the couple. An ode to Kate’s grandfather, we knew incorporating willow tree foliage would be a beautiful detail. We grabbed a pen and sketchbook and started drawing.
The final invitation suite incorporated a simple, but sweet K&M initial motif, custom willow tree foliage and hand lettered fonts. The suite was printed on a beautiful ivory cotton stock with navy blue ink — a very classic and elegant direction. From there, we branded the remaining day-of signage similarly to their invitation suite. We also added hand lettered chalkboards throughout the event which added a rustic touch.
If you’re interested in a custom designed invitation suite or day-of signage, please reach out to us! We’d love to help with your stationery needs.
