sherry and i went to high school together and reconnected this past year on facebook. it was such a wonderful surprise when she contacted me in regards to designing her wedding invitations.
before i start talking about the wedding invitation, here are a couple things that i remember most about sherry from high school… sherry was my biology partner in mr. mclaughlin’s class, sherry’s older brother was and still is a really good friend of my older sister, sherry loved to write poetry and based on the few that she shared with me, i remember thinking that she is a true romantic. and after all these years, i believe she still is and has found the love of her life, michael.
sherry and michael came to me with a very distinct style and vision for their wedding invitation. they’re wedding is set to be outdoors at a ranch/winery. the elements they wanted to incorporate were a whimsical feel with fireflies, mason jars and their wedding colors, dark chocolate and a pale blush pink. they liked the idea of iridescent or shimmery paper but still wanted to keep it simple with just the invitation and reply card.
all they had to say was “iridescent or shimmery paper” and my heart had melted. i knew that these invitations were going to be very fun and different then anything else i had ever done.
the finished piece consists of a dark chocolate metallic cardstock printed with 2 metallic inks, silver and gold. since the reply card needed to be a lighter color so that guests could write in their response, we decided to go with a very pale blush pink metallic cardstock incorporating the second color of their wedding.
congratulations to sherry & michael on your up and coming wedding and your new life together!
