Design | Wedding Ensemble by Finian Road

From last year...clearly, safe to blog now since everyone has received and attended the event!

The bride chose three colors -- chocolate, pear green and tangerine for the wedding.  Her family has a connection to the wheat industry in Washington, so we used a simple wheat motif throughout the ensemble. Clean and uncluttered was the goal...tying in the three colors throughout.

All three pieces had rounded corners (so elegant on printed pieces) and were printed in a matte styling.  The main invitation was 5x7, with the two coordinating pieces at 4x6.  (And yes, her return address was changed for the blog posting. But it gives you a feel for what it looked like!)

As the wedding was a 'destination wedding' for both families, coming from each side of the state, I designed a brushstroke state of Washington on the map card, highlighting the main route of travel to the wedding itself at Cave B Winery in Quincy.  Adding in a simple 'map zoom', it highlighted the neighboring towns to Cave B without cluttering up the overall design. 

The ensemble was sent in a chocolate envelope, and tied together with satin ribbon.  We all loved how they turned out...here's a glimpse for you!
