A couple weeks ago Matt and I not only had the pleasure of attending the beautiful wedding of our friends Rachael and Joel Price but also were given the privilege to serve them with our talents by creating their wedding invitations, RSVP cards and programs. We absolutely love when we are given the opportunity to utilize the creative outlets that God has blessed us with, but it makes it that much sweeter when we can share these abilities with our dear loved ones. For those of you who don’t know Rachael and Joel personally, allow me to tell you a little bit about this wonderful couple! Rachael and I have been friends since we were twelve years old. She is one of the most charismatic, fun loving, passionate and caring people I have ever had to pleasure of knowing. When there is something going on in life that I don’t exactly know how to handle, I know I can come to Rachael and she will give me her full attention as well as wonderful wise words to help me come up with a solution. Joel on the other hand is very laid back and mellow but don’t be fooled, he is a go-getter that knows what he wants in life and goes after it with his whole heart; hence how he was the lucky guy who landed Rachael as his wife. Together these two could take on the world! They have such an amazing life ahead of them! One with lots of purpose and intentionality. One filled with the greatest joys, the strongest love and the most enduring hope. Matt and I are so looking forward to watching as their life unfolds and the plans that God has for them play out! So when they came to us back in December and asked if we would be willing to work with them and design their wedding set there was only one answer; of course!
Rachael and Joel had been planning their wedding for over a year so they had a pretty good idea of what they were envisioning for their big day. The color pallet they had chosen was a soft blush pink, paired with cream and charcoal grey along with hints of mint. A few words used to describe their wedding would be elegant, romantic, charming and timeless, yet with very subtle modern details. To accomplish this feel in the invitation set we used a cream back drop on the finest heavy card stock available. Then added bold charcoal and soft blush stripes along the edges that would coordinate with the darker charcoal font used for the type; softening and romanticizing the entire set. We also used a mixture of fonts hand picked to coordinate perfectly with the over all feel of timeless elegance and lend a sense of old world charm along with a very slight modern twist; such as the large cursive monogram of the couples name at the top. We also made the sets double sided to minimize over crowding so that the areas Matt had purposely intended to catch the readers eye would do so without any interference.
We had such a wonderful experience designing Rachael and Joel’s wedding set and were overjoyed that we were able to capture the vision for their special day in this significant way. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Joel Price Jr! Here’s to many more memories being made!
