Recently I had the pleasure of working with Mietta and Brent to design their invitations and on the day items for their November 2012 nuptials. After my initial meeting with Mietta to talk about their wedding plans I knew that this was going to be something special - contemporary and elegant with a little New York style of sophistication, plus the gorgeous view of the Melbourne city skyline from their venue thrown in for good measure.
All of this is reflected in the design of their wedding stationery. The colour palette of white, grey and violet is inspired by the couples colours and the contemporary style of the event. With a simple palette, we chose to use one of my favourite textured paper stocks - Rives Design in Bright White complemented by a black and white string tie envelope to add to the contemporary look of the invitation.
To tie the whole suite together, each piece features a light violet chevron pattern inspired by the pattern to be featured on the wedding cake, and a simple emblem featuring the couples initials - which not only played a part in the decor of the event but is inspired by the M and B letters that decorate the couples home.

“I cannot speak highly enough of the amazing work that Jess did to bring our wedding stationery to fruition. Jess understood our brief from the outset, and made it very hard to choose an initial design concept as everything she created and presented was amazing and very on trend. Jess was very patient with us and provided amazing guidance. At no stage did we ever feel stressed, and we received a number of compliments on not only our invites, but also the place cards and menus, they were perfect!”
