I seriously owe Ben so big for coming up with the idea to do a Great Gatsby inspired invitation. Y’all have shown it so much love on Pinterest and the magazines and blogs are talking about Lucky Luxe and art deco weddings interchangeably. If you saw the movie, I hope you were as spellbound by it as we were. Holy cow. I’d watch it 5 more times in the theater, but it wouldn’t be socially acceptable. I spent about $10,000 on tickets seeing Titanic in 1997 and that’s enough support for Leo for the rest of my life, I think. The Wedding Chicks are on board with deco wedding style and used our Gatsby invitation in a styled shoot!
Katy and Dan contacted us a couple months ago with a request for a whimsical Bespoke invitation for their lakeside Wisconsin wedding. I went crazy with faux bois and pine tree icons, then she decided to go a lighter, sparkling, summery nautical direction and my entire thought process shifted. I was looking at these kinds of images for inspiration on her Pinterest board, and I got carried away:
And this is the invitation that rolled off the press today:
I’m so proud of Katy for choosing the concept that was less traditional—I gave her some much simpler options to choose from, but she went with what I call the ‘sea captain’ design. I absolutely love the layering of colors.
