Art History Inspired

It’s fun to see how the custom process, or WV Couture experience works. In this example Julia, the bride to be, sent me some photos that she found inspiring, along with the couple’s likes, hobbies, passions, and the story of how they met. When a bride comes to you with that much vision it is very inspiring. We begun with an inspiration board I put together along with some concepts.

Julia received her undergrad degree in art history, and both the bride and the groom are Italian.The overall design we ended up with utilized a Baroque “V” for her new last name. The letter was so decorative that at times it was just an abstract design, and at times you could really see the “V”, which worked really well for a great overall look without being too matchy matchy. The entire invitation suite was hand letterpressed utilizing a deep navy, chocolate and blind impressions. 

We also created the wedding accessories for the reception and wedding weekend. These included welcome gift bag tags, menus, table numbers and escort cards that were hand calligraphed.
