IMG_7098-web.jpg

Louise and Cameron's beautifully classic invitations featured black letterpress ink on ivory paper for their Oregon wedding.  We continued the look throughout all of their day-of pieces, including place cards, menus, programs, hors d'oeuvres cards, and reception signage.

Ornate black and silver foil wedding invitations

foil-letterpress-ornate-black-silver-wedding-invitations

Tammy and Jean-Paul’s formal, black-tie wedding invitations are nothing short of incredible!  Their black and silver color palette was carried through the set with black and metallic silver papers, black ink and silver foil, black hand calligraphy, and silver foil edging.  The formal, somewhat traditional fonts feel more contemporary when paired with this ornate back pattern in silver foil - and the foil edge truly pops on their triple-thick paper!

Be inspired: Sparkly Celebration

We hope everyone had a great fourth of July!  We're not ready to be done celebrating, so we're keeping that spirit alive with this week's inspired invitation design, featuring a photo by Liga Photography.  This invitation would be gorgeous in black letterpress ink and silver foil.  We love the monochromatic look with a bright pop of color on the edge - and the design shows that fun & festive design is totally possible without losing elegance!

Beautiful foil stamped business cards on black paper

We were so honored to work with Stan of Bashert Jewelry recently on his business cards.  Stan bases each of his custom jewelry designs on the personal love story of the couple, so the uniqueness of the black paper fit his branding perfectly, while the rose gold foil stamping encapsulates the romance of his jewelry.  The simplicity, elegance, and subtle luxury of the finished business cards emulate Bashert Jewelry perfectly.

From Stan, regarding the inspiration behind his jewelry design and business:  My inspiration was not something I have studied or observed. My signature style was not in the certifications I got on the wall. It was the spark in the eyes of the guy that walked in the studio one day. It was in his quiet, trembling voice, revealing in shy, half-sentences his Love Story to me. Complete stranger.  I realized - sitting across, with nervous anticipation, my own Muse was staring at me.  It was The Love Story!  In Metal and Stones, I give each Love Story its own expression. From the pencil sketch to the final product in the box, I enjoy the whole process. I am addicted to the challenge each story presents. With every couple I meet, I see new forms, new colors and new design blossoming. I draw my energy from the interaction with the phenomenon “Two-In-Love”. I realize, the jewelry, I create, is meant to be a Love Promise. It is a vow with no measure of time. It is eternity captured in a moment.
