Wedding Invitation Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of an up coming wedding invitation we are working on. The picture above is the sketch of our Bride's cake. We worked with both the bride and her wonderful wedding planner, Gabrielle Tucker of Faire La Fete Productions on the design of the invitations. Once the invitation design was finalized, they took the invitation to the bride's cake maker, Cakes by Lauren, who based the entire cake off the look of the invitations. I can't wait to see the real thing! Did you notice the grooms cake at the bottom of the photo? It's an Air Jordan shoe that rests on a shoe box! How Fun!

Invitation with Band Detail

Jessica and Robert's invitation are a traditional 5x7 size with a shimmer champagne backing. I love the soft color combination of two different shades of pinks and gold. Jessica chose a detailed scroll pattern. I was able to incorporate her monogram into it so that it looks as though it is actually part of the scroll. 

Jessica initially liked the idea of a pocket fold because it keeps all of the additional cards together, but it was a little more than she wanted to spend, so we suggested the band option. The band is a nice alternative to the pocket style and less expensive!
