Natalie and Dan's Elegant Houston Wedding

Some of you may remember Natalie's Save the Date that I posted about last year. Well, I finally had time to photograph her elegant wedding suite with the time and devotion it deserved. 

Natalie and Dan were such a pleasure to work with. Not only were they fun and kind; they also had a very specific look in mind for their big day which required a lot of creative brainstorming and fun design elements. They really wanted an invitation suite that mimicked the formal elegance of the cathedral where they got married, but was also completely unique to them as a couple. In the end, we pulled out all the stops: gold foil, custom liners, blind printed embellishments, edge painting, etc. I know I am slightly biased, but I think the end result is stunning! I hope you enjoy.

This image doesn't do the full suite justice: you miss all the blind printed scroll detail, but I do love the simple elegance of each piece.

I really loved the details on the wedding detail card.

The full suite was held together with a simple gold belly band.

Natalie and Dan's custom monogram helped tie all the pieces together throughout the wedding. It was used throughout the suite, on the Save the Dates, on her Rehearsal Dinner invitations and all of her Day-of Wedding Paper. Hopefully they will continue to use it in their married life.

The final touch of gold edge painting helped add another bit of shimmer and elegance.
