Mishqua and Brian's Invitations

Mishqua and Brian are having a very nontraditional wedding, so for their invitations, we knew we had to set the tone. They are to be married at Gibraltar Gardens, and that location is known for the gorgeous rod iron gates that flank the gardens. Mishqua stumbled across a photo of a couture gatefold with an imprinted leaf and HAD to have it. I was stoked to take on the challenge! Brian took a photo of those famed gates and we used it to create a custom gatefold for them. We constructed the invitation out of deckled parchment and kept it all closed with a belly band imprinted with their guests' names. The couple was thrilled with the end result and we enjoyed making something so unique!
Here's a photo of the inside of the invitation as well as the preserved red maple leaf we imprinted in gold with "and into that gate they shall enter" an excerpt from a poem by John Donne.
