Our friends' June wedding will take place at Copia, a wine and food center in Napa Valley in California. I wanted to come up with a unique invitation design that spoke to the wineries of Napa without actually implementing illustrations of wine bottles, grapes, etc... To accomplish this, I employed cork paper — wonderfully crafted sheets of actual thinly sliced cork — and burgundy velvet ribbon to hint at the hue of red wine. I was inspired by a potential flower arrangement (chosen by the bride) containing chartreuse hydrangeas, and found that this color complimented both the decorative cork and rich velvet perfectly.
I made a guest book to go along with the invitations I designed for the lovely wedding we just attended in Napa Valley.
I also created a seating poster for the reception - rather than table numbers, each table was named "I love you" in a different language.
Placecards were created to match the chartreuse-based theme, held in place by corks, with wedding favor charity donation information Gocco screenprinted in gold ink on the back.
My friend, Kala, did a wonderful job with the table names and settings!
