I know last year was crazy because I realized that I hadn't shared, or even taken photos of, some of my favorite custom wedding sets that I now designed over a year and a half ago. I started Rifle Paper Co. by designing custom wedding invitations and it's something I absolutely love but while our little company has grown I haven't had as much time to do full custom sets. This set is one of my favorites though so I thought I would finally share it!
The couple got married at the Bowery Hotel in NY. The bride is from NY and her fiancé is from London so the illustration on the front of the invite reflected both locations in the background. The inspiration for the set was the vintage style interior of the Bowery Hotel (one of my favorite hotels) and we also took inspiration from the beautiful Saipua floral arrangements that would be at the wedding (view photos of the couple's actual florals here). The color palette used pastel pinks & greens for the Spring wedding but grounded in blacks & muted tones to add sophistication to the set.
We worked together on the day of pieces as well (escort cards, menu, table numbers, etc.) which was really fun. One of my favorite pieces we did for that was the little wedding program with three pages tied together with Angela Ligouri's Italian cotton ribbon, which I'm obsessed with.
p.s. have a lovely Memorial Day weekend! I'm hoping that I'll finally have time to finish that Paris recommendations post ;) ...and on Monday I'm going to post a couple awesome job openings at Rifle!
