Carly and Chris are getting married next month in Duck North Carolina at the Saltaire House, an amazing teal blue victorian bed and breakfast.  The shabby chic theme of their wedding will be carried through the decor via vintage finds painted bright and happy colors.  No description of mine will do this amazing theme justice, so you will just have to wait for late October to see what I mean :)

When designing their graphics, we wanted something sweet and sophisticated that we could carry throughout all of the event graphics.  We started off with this invitation design and decided that the script text was perfect, but something was missing…it was a little too plain.

The next version featured a floral “lacy” pattern in their alma mater’s main color, Pirate Purple (ECU….I will keep my collegiate sports affiliations to myself.)

Not really ecstatic about the purple or the difficult to read font, we decided to take one more stab at the design and ended up with this:

For the final package, Carly printed on recycled brown paper, wrapped it with an 8″ doily, and tied the suite together with hemp.  A super elegant and clean-cut invitation suite for what’s going to be an amazing wedding!!
