Roos/DesLauriers Wedding Suite

A wedding invitation.

This wedding invitation was designed for my marriage to my sweet husband, Nick. We quickly identified a theme of vintage books with a touch of whimsy. Knowing that this would be a DIY project from start to finish, the home printing on cream-colored, tea-stained paper fit well with the overall style. To help call out the book connection, the envelope interior was dressed with pages from our favorite classic novels. Throughout the book, a change in font calls out personal touches intended to evoke a chuckle or two from the guest. Looking for a clean and simple way to bind the book, each invitation was sewn with the wedding colors. The simple heart motif on the cover was inspired by our Scandinavian roots.
