Michelle Leo of Michelle Leo Events is one of the amazing leaders in our industry, so when she approached me to create a suite for her bride, Sara, I was honored! The suite we created is one of my all time favorites (I know I say that a lot, but how could I possibly pick a true favorite?!).
We wanted to keep the suite classic, elegant, and interesting with some texture and gold. The suite was printed in gold foil on 220lb stock in a pale ivory and a textured aubergine. The main invitation was adorned with antique lace appliqued in the corners, each hand cut from a larger lace piece (on the plus side, it didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would!). The envelopes were both lined with pale fall leaves and the suite was tied up with thin velvet ribbon. The aubergine envelopes were then addressed in flourished gold, and into the post they went!
The overall wedding was simply spectacular and it was such a joy to work with such an amazing team!
For the menus, we kept with the moody aubergine stock - we loved the way the color stood out against the taupe linens. The main lettering was all done by hand in calligraphy, then mixed with a classic and clean block type. The place cards continued the moody color scheme with each guests name in flourished gold ink.
