Rachael + Ryan: Pewter and Plum Wedding | AJCreative

Rachael and Ryan aren’t ordinary clients. These two lovebirds are my friends. I met Rachael about two years when we worked together in the publishing industry. We quickly became great friends, heck, we had to share a computer for almost 3 months! I had the privilege to watch Rachael and Ryan’s relationship grow, help Rachael shop online for wedding rings, hear all about how he proposed and listen to her plans for the dream wedding. I was honored to be able to design their save the date cards, wedding invitations, menu cards, table numbers and thank you cards.

Rachael planned a winter wedding with colors of pewter, black and plum. It was absolutely stunning! Modern, classy and elegant. Rachael and Ryan’s save the date cards were printed on a white felt paper, giving it a special texture. The black and white photo was accented with pops of purple from Ryan’s tie and Rachael’s super cute purple pumps! The cards were wrapped in a pewter satin ribbon and mailed out in a matching linen printed envelope.

Sparkle and shine! Rachael and Ryan’s custom invitation suite featured a matte black pocket wrapped with pewter satin ribbon and a square rhinestone buckle at the center. The invitation and accommodation cards were printed on pearlescent paper and tucked inside. The invitations were mailed in a matching envelope featuring machined-calligraphy. The scripted monogram logo is seen on each of Rachael and Ryan’s designs.

As a stationer, I design wedding invitations daily, but rarely am I invited to my client’s wedding. Rachael and Ryan’s wedding venue was absolutely beautiful! Table number cards and menu cards were created to assist guests. I have been to the Temple for the Performing Arts in Des Moines for an ADDY Awards Show years ago, but to see it transformed into a wedding venue was unbelievable. From the table decor to lighting, wedding cake to dance floor, it was gorgeous.

A smart photographer created a thank you banner for Rachael and Ryan to use in their photos. This was the perfect photo to incorporate into their thank you cards. Adorable! Could these two be any cuter?! A photo card and monogram card were the perfect way to thank guests. Congrats to you, Rachael and Ryan!
