One thing I love about my particular business is the ability to work with brides all over the country. In this case, I worked with Cate Jensen from New York on her wedding invitations. She was married a few months back in San Francisco and it was a beautiful evening!
Cate has some great design skills and came to me prepared with her concept for the invitations. She simply needed some help implementing the idea which is where I came in. She wanted the graphic to show a silhouette of San Francisco using her colors ivory and navy blue with a traditional type treatment.
Here is a shot of Cate and her husband Austin with San Francisco in the background… beautiful right? I also LOVE their reception decor and the amazing cake! I can’t get over the detail of the city skyline.
The entire set consisted of the invitation and reception card (which were both letterpressed by Darling Press and Stationers). To keep cost down, Cate opted that we digitally print the RSVP and Weekend Events card. All 4 pieces were tucked inside of an ivory soft cotton envelope.
Cate’s mother wanted to surprise her with custom printed napkins at the wedding, and worked with me separately to bring this idea to life. I used a snapshot of their silhouette graphic with their wedding date and the word “Happiness”.
After the wedding, Cate wrote a wonderful review on my Facebook page. “If you are thinking of doing invitations yourself, don’t- work with Red Pearl Designs instead! We have LOVED working with Megan at Red Pearl Designs for our wedding invitations. She took our ideas and made them beautiful. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she is always quick to respond to our questions and update proofs. Working with Red Pearl Designs has been so easy and positive. I cannot recommend Megan enough.” – Cate PenaPin It
