In 2021, we started doing wedding invitations! Our first client was a lovely family friend and her fiancé. Their wedding was a sweet outdoor affair at her family's farm, and our task was to make invitations to match.
They requested that we incorporate ferns, and their colors they liked were a sage green and a gray. So, we set off to start designing and finding materials.
Madeleine's draft page of layout and "logo" design. 2021.
Madeleine started with some layout sketches, and then went on to designing the logo to feature at the top of each invitation.

After the design was finished, it was time to choose envelopes and exact colors. We settled on these lovely "matcha" colored envelopes, in 2 sizes, one for the invitations, and one for the RSVP cards. We then mixed our inks to match perfectly.

The first step in creating my own stationery was to design it. My partner, James, drew this lovely Dahlia. He then carved it into a cherry woodblock and we used that throughout our suite.
