Michelle and Chris - A Hamptons Vineyard Affaire

I'm so excited to share this next invitation suite with you as it was for a very special client. My husband's cousin, Michelle, married an incredibly awesome guy, Chris, this past September at Martha Clara Vineyards on the North Fork of Long Island.

The vineyard was so beautiful and rustic and the wedding was delightful. Working on Michelle and Chris' invitations was a joy - not only because they are family, but because their style was so laid back and their vision was so pretty.

We got an early start on the invitation design which allowed us time to send out a coordinating Save-the-Date. Michelle and Chris wanted to work with yellow and gray with pops of navy as their scheme, so I was really excited to suggest this gorgeous yellow and white brocade stock from Envelopments.

We used a flip card to convey the Save the Date information with a calendar and information about their website on the back. They were then shipped out in Goodnight Navy envelopes with coordinating address labels.

When it came time to create the invitation itself, Michelle and Chris wanted to somehow incorporate some photos they had of the venue since it was so beautiful. Michelle was able to provide a photo of the barn on the Vineyard where the reception would be held and from there I created a sketch. The drawing and main text of the invitation was in gray, with their names in contrasting Navy. Mounted on a shimmery navy card, the invitation coordinated well with the RSVP which also had a sketch detail (this time, of wine barrels) and was mounted on the white/yellow brocade card stock.

The entire suite was wrapped up in a yellow and white brocade pocket envelope. The pocket envelope is a great alternative if you are in love with a detailed card stock, but it isn't available in envelopes. With some double-stick tape and a coordinating wrap-around label, we were able to send out a piece that truly stood out from the rest!

Michelle and Chris were a joy to work with and it was an honor to be able to bring their vision to life. Their beautiful wedding was also recently featured over at Well Wed - I hope you'll check it out!
