Birch Tree Wedding Invitations
When I met with Emily back in February, she wanted two things, for her invitations, birch trees and a custom designed wreath with her monogram. She is getting married at a family home in Vermont and there are birch trees all over the property. She likes soft, muted colors, so we opted for ivory, grey, sage, and papaya for a pop of color. To give a hint of whimsy to the invitation, we "carved" their initials into the tree trunk.
When Sam proposed to Emily, he took vines from a particular tree on the family property and made them into a wreath of sorts, and stuck flowers in it, so that it would look like Emily's engagement ring. She asked if I could create that wreath so that she can use it on various wedding accessories.
