Philip + Meghan | Black & Gold Wedding

I'm finally sitting down to write a blog post about a project I've been dying to talk about! I absolutely love it when I get to "brand" everything for a wedding, from the initial save the date down to the Instagram hashtag signs, and everything in between! Philip and Meghan were kind enough to allow me to create all of their paper goods for their wedding on March 21, 2015 (which was gorgeous, by the way).

I created their save the dates this past Summer, so when it came time to make their invitations we wanted to keep the same vibe going. Meghan sent me all of her ideas and we ended up with this beauty. Back and gold is always a classic, and the gold foil confetti gave it a fun and modern edge. We decided to keep all of the inserts loose inside the gold metallic envelope. Online RSVP's kept the bulk down as a return envelope wasn't needed. This is a great way to simplify and cut costs! 

We used a nice, thick 120# paper with a matte finish, and the main invitation was mounted on a black metallic panel card. 

After these babies were complete and in the mail, it was time to get started on the next projects! First up were thank you cards. These were folded cards sized to fit an A2 envelope.

Meghan had the great idea to make thank you cards to include at the place settings at the reception in place of favors. Another great idea!

My husband, Jonathan was the best man in this wedding, so I was in attendance for the beautiful ceremony and reception. I also created the programs for the ceremony. I like programs to be clean and simple, and I like them sized 4.25" x 11". I stashed my program on the party bus that night, but it disappeared between the ceremony and reception, so I wasn't able to photograph it. Here's what it looked like.

It was so nice to be able to see my work "in action" at the wedding! I usually don't have this luxury, so this was a special treat. Here are some photos from the evening. Thank you so much Philip and Meghan for letting me be apart of your special day. It was a beautiful wedding, and I wish you two all the happiness in the world :)
