Rachel came to us with a very clear vision for her wedding day: a secret rose garden. She wanted a look that was soft and romantic, lush and intimate. The wedding was held on her future in-laws' property in the Hamptons. This beautiful location held many rooms for the guests to move through, including an artist studio. Making flowers a prominent part of their invitation was an obvious choice. Rachel loved letterpress, so it really came down to selecting the papers. Blush is so romantic and a cool silver paired well. Rachels & Chris's "branding" became the emblem shown at the top of the invitation, which changed letters after they were married, and the internal phrase in the banner alternated for the occasions. To top off the romance, Rachel chose Pablo Neruda poems as a gift to their guests with personalized bookmarks for seating.
