Clean, classic, and yet still personal and welcoming. Elise and Jarrett’s suite included an elegantly monogrammed gold foil and letterpress invitation card wrapped in emerald velvet ribbon. A hand-drawn map of Virginia’s Shenandoah area was included, which not only showcased the weekend’s locations, but also three U.S. president’s homes. A rehearsal dinner invitation on contrasting neutral paper also included a charcoal drawing, and a Shenandoah Valley vintage postcard was fashioned into the response card as well as the envelope’s liner. Vintage postage stamps echoing the presidents on the map were used to post the invitations. A wealth of day-of stationery was also designed, including accordion-style programs, signage, coffee cup sleeves, napkins, and escort cards. Foiled and calligraphed menus featured a tiny punched hole for floral greenery to indicate the guest’s entrée selection.
