Jillian + Lee
Jillian is a friend of mine from middle school with whom I had lost touch with, so I was delighted when she asked me to design her wedding invitations! Together with her fiancé, Lee, they decided to go with a travel theme to reflect the nature of their long-distance relationship. She is from New York, he from the United Kingdom. Over the years, they had travelled many miles to see each other and spend time together, from London to New York to Paris. Lee even proposed on a special trip to St. Lucia!
Jillian + Lee chose a beautiful palette for their castle wedding — soft pinks and cremes for their flowers, and long navy dresses for the bridesmaids. We worked together to design an invitation suite that was modern, soft, with just a hint of vintage flair to reflect handwritten letters. I created different variations of passport stamps that we incorporated into the suite that reflected some of the different locations they had travelled to. The suite was printed on soft white paper and inserted into navy inner envelopes before going into custom-printed outer envelopes, giving them just the right elegant touch.
