Sarah & Michael’s Modern Old Hollywood Invitations

Sarah and Michael and their invitation suite are my favorite client/paper combo to date. The two of them have the best style and an affinity for Hova and Bey. Seriously, what’s not to love? We brought both to their paper story combining the feel of Old Hollywood with hip-hop inspired lyrics. It all started with their foil stamped Save the Date. At first glance, you see a super-glamorous card – but wait – the words “wining and grinding” appear in a beautiful foil stamped script. It’s this combination of luxe with lingo that really gets me fired up – in a good way! The design of their Save the Date carried over to the invitation suite which was letterpress printed and gold foil stamped on 110# Crane’s Lettra. The main invitation was kept formal with elegant details and traditional wording. It’s on the enclosure cards where we let loose with fun language. Guests were asked to “Pop champagne and make it rain” and were invited “After the party (to) the hotel lobby” for a recovery brunch. Of course this rap-inspired suite wouldn’t be complete without a mix tape. This cheeky card guided guests to their wedding website for all the celebration details.
