Raspberry and Navy Deliciousness!

So since today one of our weddings is totally famous, I thought it'd be a great day to blog about Tricia and Jack's awesome navy and raspberry invitations and reception details. 

Tricia is a very old and dear friend of ours, and anyone who has ever met Tricia knows what an amazing person she is. She is truly always smiling, and possibly the most positive person I know. Her joy is totally infectious, it's impossible not to be happy when around her. I wanted her invitations to convey that same joy, fun, and classy vibe.

Tricia wanted something with a vintage feel without screaming a VINTAGE cliché. So we hand drew the border and incorporated some fun fonts on a heavily textured off-white paper. 

When Tricia and I were initially crafting the design together I threw out the idea of just leaving the names as "Tricia & Jack" and forgoing the traditional middle and last names... My thinking was, if you didn't know who Tricia and Jack were, you probably shouldn't be invited in the first place. (How many Tricia and Jacks do YOU know??) It was a risk, especially with Tricia's pretty traditional family, but we both loved the idea so much, we decided to go for it, and boy did it pay off! Everyone loved it!

We carried the theme throughout the menu/table number cards and place cards for the reception. In true rust belt love form, I have horrible iPhone and Instagram photos of these. {don't worry, I'm rolling my eyes too.}

For GOOD photos of these, and the rest of the amazing reception and wedding check out the pros at Nickel City Studios blog. Truly the best of the best. Tricia and Jack, you guys are so rad, we love you both so much and wish you an eternity of happiness together. Thank you for letting us be a part of this magical day.
