A while ago I posted about Michele & James and their Daring inspiration board, as well as the invitation designs we came up with for them to choose from. Now I'm thrilled to finally present the completed design!

Full invitation in black, purple and silverMichele and James wanted a sleek and modern design that was different from everything they'd been seeing.

Detail of invitationThe invitation itself was screen printed with metallic silver ink on heavy black board. We also included an inner purple envelope for a burst of color that also acts as an enclosure for all the other elements.

Outer envelope

We chose a black outer envelope for the invite so that it stood out against all the other mail guests received along with it. Each envelope was addressed with silver labels, and we created a custom return address stamp that was used on both the reverse side of the outter envelope as well as the RSVP envelope, stamped in silver ink.

RSVP card & envelopeSilver shimmery paper that matched the silver labels on the outter envelope was flat printed with black ink for the RSVP card. 

Details cardMichele & James also really loved the idea of a monogram, but were happy to use it as a secondary element, so we incorporated it here, on the insert card along with the invitation to the day-after brunch.

The reverse side of the insert card was used for all the other details the couple wanted to share with their guests.

 Tomorrow, stay tuned for photos from both their engagement session and their wedding!
