Chris and I go back a long way and when he announced his engagement to Melissa, it was all thumbs up and high fives around these parts. So when he approached me about doing the invites for the wedding how could I say no?
In talking with the couple, I learned that they’d be having their wedding ceremony at the Grove in Glenview, IL. It’s a beautiful space that would be in full bloom on their wedding date. I used that as the basis for the invitations, putting together a foliage pattern for the outside of the invites. I paired this with the couple’s initials on one flap and the date of the wedding on the other, joining the two in the middle when the invitations were folded.
Then I brought in Starshaped Press to print the invites on their early 20th Century letterpresses.
