Portfolio: Aagaard Wedding | Invitation Suite

A while back I gave you a glimpse of the process I went through to come to this beautiful invitation suite, here and here.

The bride was inspired by the mix of antique finds of her own and the bold mix of patterns seen at such stores like Anthropologie and J.Crew. With this in mind, we created a pattern and monogram that was repeated through out the suite.

The finish product was a sweet mix of hand-done elements - like the screen printed booklet cover, and the engraved invitation- with an elegant simplicity to allow the importance of the text to shine through. The mix of the subtle but bold nature of the pattern on each piece gave a modern feel to this classic style of invite.

A few weeks back I shared this mood board with you from the lovely Aggaard wedding. You can see how the Mood board dictated the inspiration for the three comps I ended up showing the client. With details of a muted palette and a vintage but classic feel to the suits to match the rustic wedding she was planning, each suite captured a different mood we had talked about. The first having a contemporary look and a splash of watercolor to create color; the second being more straight cut classic, with modern vibes, and the third being a clean pallet of grey and white with a mix of patterns and vintage fonts. In the end we mixed and matched pieces from each set to create the final suite she had envisioned from the beginning. I can't wait to show you how it ended up!

I wanted to share a little on a fun project I did a few months ago. The first part to any project is capturing the clients look and feel, i.e. mood, for what they have in mind for the end result. Some clients will have their entire vision already set and just need a designer to put together the details. For Carly, she had a great aesthetic eye, but needed a designer to create that finished product. She was fun to work with as she wanted a traditional invite, but with a unique twist. This allowed me to think outside the standard box, but keeping a classic touch.

Other details she sought out were looking for a muted palette featuring jewel tones,  and a vintage but classic feel to the suit to match the rustic wedding she was planning. The moodboard above was just a small collection to help set the tone of the suite, and I can't wait to share what we ended up creating!
