The Making of a Couture Invitation

1. “For the save-the-date, I used flowers based on those in a painting for a show I was in at P.S 1. I engraved my own handwriting so it’d feel more personal.”

2. “We both love turquoise and used the color throughout the wedding reception. My bridal party chose their own dresses in any shade of blue-green. We asked the groomsmen to wear a blue-green tie or handkerchief.”

3. “Ryan often brings me lilies, so I decided to draw a spotted lily myself and have it letterpressed into the background of our invitation card. I use orchids in my work, so I considered that, but in the end I thought an orchid would be too sexual for a wedding invite.”
