• Wedding Suites // Blakely & Matthew •

Absolutely loved working on these glamorous gold-foil wedding suites for Blakely & Matthew. They are getting married next month at the Arctic Club in Seattle, so we worked to have the invitations be a grand preview to the beautifully ornate venue — I think we succeeded.

Each piece was printed offset in black onto Ecru Crane Letra and then gold foiled with a “dusted gold”. We used patterns and borders to cue an art-deco style, but also kept it modern with a clean serif typeface and a calligraphic typeface. The suite included a main invitation with gold shimmer lined black envelopes — complete with calligraphy from Carolyn Kach — a reply card & gold-stamped reply envelopes, and an accommodations card all wrapped together with a delicate gold thread. Overall, I’m overjoyed with how they turned out and have to say they’re some of my favorite invites to date.
