Engaged at The Domain

It's always such an honor to be asked to participate in helping a wedding consultant realize his or her vision. So when Liv with Liv by Design asked me to design stationery for a room she was creating at Engaged! in Austin at The Westin at The Domain, I was on board. The wedding room was appropriately named, "Metropolitan Green."

Liv was inspired by a sophisticated garden party on a modern New York rooftop and bringing that concept into Austin. With that in mind, I created an invitation suite that was romantic and modern, yet had an industrial feel. To establish these seemingly contrasting styles, I used a metallic color palette of gold, silver and peaches and I had the invitation laser cut out.

To start, I designed a gate image to play off of the garden feel. To soften the modern laser-cut look, I affixed the invitation to a peach textured metallic backing and tied a satin ribbon in vintage gold around. The silver metallic envelope was lined with a shimmery gold paper with a laser cut "S" monogram. The response and accommodations card incorporated a beautiful calligraphy script and carried on the garden gate design.  
For the table cards, I used the same metallic papers to create the modern, industrial feel with a romantic "S" monogram and gate design. The menus were printed on belly bands that wrapped around the guest's napkins. The place cards, which assigned seating, were created out of layered cardstock and affixed to a wooden pick for a modern take.
To add a little fun to the stationery, I created signs for the bride and groom's reception seats. The signs stated "Mr. Right" and "Mrs. Always Right" (perfect photo props!). Finally, I created tags for the jugs of rosemary lemonade and peach tea (a perfect garden party complement). Hope you enjoy the pics of this beautiful inspired room!
