Molly and Ben had the most gorgeous wedding day! I started talking with Molly about her invitations in January, and I could tell immediately that her plans were going to take shape into something incredible.
Molly's dress is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, and fit so well with the elegant and modern choice of venue, the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The wedding was the perfect blend of soft, romantic florals, classical European sculpture and paintings, and ivy-filled courtyards.
When designing Molly's invitations, I wanted to keep things simple, but also modern and classic. Molly wanted everything to be written in calligraphy - which is such a gorgeous look! - and loved the texture of deckle-edged handmade paper. We went with a color scheme of mostly white with touches of grey, and used subtle details like a hand-embossed border, thin white twine, and a blank vellum cover page to add layers and depth. I finished everything off with shiny gold envelope addressing and a white wax seal. Molly's vision of white on white took the invitations in such a lovely direction!
Molly also wanted a seating chart and numbered place cards. In keeping with the aesthetic of the invitations, we chose handmade paper and grey calligraphy for everything. Molly wanted each place card to be tied to the back of the chairs for visibility, which was very unique and pretty. The seating chart is one of my favorites, with all those lines of calligraphy, and is the only element of the stationery where illustration is included.
This day was so gorgeous, and I am so honored that I was able to create stationery for it. Every vendor added so much to the beauty of the wedding, and Molly and Ben's sweet love for each other is so evident! It's always a treat to work with brides in my own city, to be able to meet them and learn about their personality and ideas in person, and this couple was nothing short of exceptional! Thanks for having me, you two!
