Creating custom wedding invitations for a couple gives me the opportunity to bring their ideas to life. Also, invitations set the tone for guests and allow them a glimpse of what to expect on the big day. Nothing gives me greater joy than a bride who is excited about all things wedding paper!
From the instant that Meredith with Cake and Confetti introduced us, I knew that Katelyn would be my ideal client. She had a definite vision and I knew we would want to give guests a preview of it with the wedding invitation suite. Both Katelyn and her husband Sean have strong Scottish heritage which they reflected in almost every detail of their wedding: tartan ties and ribbon, thistle in the bouquets, and Scottish traditions during the ceremony.
We tied this into the invitations by creating a custom hand drawn crest on the invitation and incorporating a thistle on the response card. It was truly a classic design while still nodding to the wedding's theme. Katelyn chose beautiful luxe double thick paper and envelopes, gold foil printing and beautiful typography. She knew the invitation would set the tone for her whole wedding and she chose each element perfectly to reflect their vision.
I loved creating this invitation for Katelyn and Sean, but loved seeing how it tied into their actual day even more. I feel like we nailed it after looking through all the photos of their lovely wedding at The Astorian in the Houston Heights!
