SHANNON & JUSTIN—
OUR STORY INVITES
Anyone who knows us well knows our undying love for each other – and coffee! Our first date was at a coffee shop, and we brought that theme all the way with us to the wedding day. Our love for coffee - matched with our vintage, retro flair – resulted in the perfect invitations and other wedding materials for our very own special day.
WHAT WE DID:
• Ceremony Programs
• Escort cards
• Table Numbers
• Gift Tags
• Rehearsal Invitations
• Thank You Cards
We stuffed invitation booklets into burlap coffee bags, and even included a few coffee beans for an authentic aroma and a lot of fun. The hand-bound booklets featured custom illustrations and wording to make this piece a truly memorable keepsake. The booklet was a take on a coffee information brochure, and our custom wedding - or in this case "coffee blend" logo - was created for the cover and then applied to other pieces of the invitation.
Following the style of the wedding logo, we created unique, eye-catching icons for each section of the invitation.
We created retro-inspired illustrations throughout the invitation to add whimsy and play off our own interests, including coffee, biking and dancing. All spreads featured a splash of beans for texture and color.
Each page featured scheduled events for the day. We created a custom icon for each event.
Playing off the idea that the booklet described our own unique coffee blend, we created a short description that described our one-of-a-kind partnership.
The R.S.V.P. was included and allowed the guests to let them know if the coffee was on.
included in the invitation, was a custom coaster that weaved together the theme and wedding colors.
We wanted the theme of the invitation to continue throughout the wedding, including making its way onto the tables in the form of table numbers and center pieces. Mason jars were filled with glittered coffee beans and we inserted table numbers styled after the logo. Burlap touches were also used to pull the style together and harken back to the invitation.
We combined the escort card and gift into one, giving every guest their own bag of coffee beans (chocolate covered of course!) and ice-cream parlor jelly beans for the kids. All gifts had a custom gift tag and escort card listing the guest's name and table name, which were coffee drinks!
All of our wedding components complemented each other and carried our theme from the invitation to the favor the guests took home. We’re excited to make your wedding concepts as fun and creative as ours!
