When Jimmy and I had started planning a wedding, for me, the most important part of the whole thing (besides actually marrying him) were the flowers and paper goods. I had been gushing over my ideas with the other designers at papellerie and had laid out plans for my save the dates with our in house calligrapher and illustrator, Alyssa - now Loveletterer. Then, kind of out of the blue, Jimmy and I decided to secretly elope and forgo the big wedding we were planning. I knew that I could still have my dream suite, even it if it was announcements instead of save the dates and invitations, and a floral background instead of actual flowers.
Jimmy and I are both really non-traditional and like to have fun, so I knew right away I wanted hot pink and gold. I really had fallen in love with this style of brush script lettering and I wanted to make sure that was incorporated into the design. I worked with Alyssa on the calligraphy style and it’s exactly what I hoped for!
The announcements were digitally printed on 90# pearl white lettra cotton paper and then hand mounted onto gold shimmer card stock. The envelopes pull in the hot pink of the floral background and feature a gold shimmer paper envelope liner as well as gold foil return address.
