This glamorous and feminine wedding invitation suite comes to us from Nichole Michel of Coral Pheasant, based in New Haven, CT! Here’s Nichole to tell us more:

We teamed up with Erica Pow­ell of Reverie Gallery to cre­ate a paper story for her “Lux­ury Glam” inspired edi­to­r­ial. A rose pat­terned laser cut blush folio was the star of the suite. The invi­ta­tion, mounted inside the folio, fea­tures a mod­ern cal­lig­ra­phy font. The sharp, angu­lar let­ters cre­ates a pleas­ant ten­sion when paired with the del­i­cate rose shapes. The palette of cream, blush and slate blue was accented with pops of gold seen on the enve­lope liner, cord wrap and fab­ric leaves.

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Jenna McKinlay of Fleur De Lis Custom Paperie, based in Denver, Colorado! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I have always been interested in paper, fonts, and weddings. I even made paper from scratch in college (yes, it’s true!). I am self taught in graphic design and have degrees in art history and business. I worked in stationery and invitations now for almost 9 years now, 5 of those years in my own business. There is something special about working with people during their most celebratory events in their lives. I love everything about what I do – the relationships we form, the sentiment behind invitations, and the beauty and style on paper.

Meet a Wedding Stationer in Cheltenham, England: Ollie's Studio (8)

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with UK based designer Ofe Oyasor of Ollie’s Studio! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Making invitations kind of started with my wedding. I figured that DIY would be fun and a great way to save some money but I didn’t really consider making it my career until after my daughter was born. I’ve always wanted to do something creative and I also wanted to be at home with my daughter. So after a lot of thought, (and a lot of compliments on my daughter’s christening invitations), I decided to leave the world of finance and embrace the world of pretty paper. I haven’t been doing it very long and I’m learning a lot as I go but oh my goodness, I absolutely love what I do now!

Meet a Wedding Stationer in Seattle, WA: Greenenvelope

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Lauren Fennell, the Creative Director at Greenvelope, a company specializing in elegant online invitations! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I have a background in art history and fine art curation, so I was looking for work in a creative field after returning to Seattle from two years of teaching English in other countries. I met our CEO, Sam, through a mutual friend who mentioned he was looking for some help with the aesthetic direction of the site. At the time, Greenvelope was only Sam, our remote developer, Kyle, and a freelance UI designer. He needed someone with a good eye to curate the collection while he focused on customer service and development.

I didn’t initially intend to work in the wedding industry specifically, but it’s been absolutely wonderful to blend wedding and tech into one career. I feel so lucky to have been exposed to this industry! I get to work with couples to make sure the best day of their life is announced in style, without too many weird font combinations! The designers I work with are just bursting with creativity, and they never fail to amaze me with their fresh ideas and techniques. I think the wedding industry is lucky to have them!
