A Wedding Under the Cosmos

September 16th, 2009 @ 5:37 pm by Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

Hi there! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We went up to Brimfield on Sunday, and we left tired & disppointed. It was the last day of the last show of 2009, so that may be the reason. We are going to give it another try in May 2010.

Before the weekend I sent off another beautiful invitation suite to a couple in Tennessee who are getting married at the Cosmos Club in Washington D.C. The club began as a society that embraced the sciences and the arts and is located in a Beaux Arts mansion. While inspired by the ornate architecture of the building and its rooms, we decided to focus on the word “Cosmos” and shoot straight into the galaxies! Shelley and her fiance, Willie, were looking for a real “deep space” feel to their invitations, so I used hundreds of stars in various shapes and forms to surround the words of the invitations.

I continued the star motif throughout the suite on the RSVP, the bottom of the accommodations card, as well as the paper band which held the pieces together.

The invitations were gocco screen printed on shimmery quartz paper {which is quite hard to see in the photos, but it is lovely!} in deep, inky plue and vibrant magenta. The paper band, RSVP envelope, and main envelope were all printed with shimmery silver ink. I also designed a stamp with a star similar to the one on the paper band for Shelley to order through Zazzle, tying the whole suite together! I think their wedding will be quite the affair!

I have a great week planned with some large letterpress orders and my first floral design class this evening! Today is also the day I met Rich four years ago! A year from this Friday, September 18 we will be getting married. Exciting things abound! I will be back later this week. Until then…

P.S. Even though my Brimfield treasures were lacking, an acquisition I made yesterday more than made up for it!
