#CeciGrooms Abe and Benno came to us with plans to marry at a classic New York City staple, The Rainbow Room. After quickly transitioning the location of their event to Telluride, Colorado, where they were taken by the natural beauty of the mountains and charming town, our visions for their design changed, yet our plans for a chic, deco glam invitation suite remained the same. Our design team quickly adjusted the existing graphics to seamlessly incorporate natural elements from Telluride like the mountains, aspen trees and leaf textures in glamorous ways without compromising the original design they had loved so much. Look closely at the pattern to see if you can spot each detail!
A black custom converted envelope with gold hand calligraphy set a luxe tone for the invitation suite. Once opened, a black velvet square slid out from the envelope, revealing a gold tie wrapped closure. This velvet wrap was a nod to the velvet blazers that Abe and Benno had custom made by Ralph Lauren for the occasion. When untied, this velvet wrap unfolded on all sides to uncover the invitation encased in purple, black and green foiled deco patterns atop each panel. In the middle of the invitation sat Abe and Benno’s signature monogram on a rose gold metal emblem which was used to brand the entire event. The wedding details shined in two-toned foil on the other side of this card that mirrored the shimmer paper in the weekend booklet and gold foil of the reply set. We made sure that every element was filled with color and light, just like the couple themselves. In the end, this turned out to be one of our most unique invitation suites!
