As a frequent customer and fellow paper-lover, Susan Clark Eason is a bride with a very special place in our hearts. From the save the dates all the way to the small details, we loved getting to be a part of the Eason wedding.
Susan’s mom, Connie, and really the whole family, have been great customers of ours since we opened a few years ago. They have amazing taste and a love for paper that runs deep. We were so excited when they asked us to help with the wedding invitations and party/paper accessories for the August wedding.
About a year before the wedding, we started the design process with inspiration that Susan brought in for her Save-the-Date. We did a fun, custom save-the-date printed digitally on bamboo paper with loose calligraphy script. This was just an intro for what was ahead.
The invitation was letterpress-printed in gold, matte foil and black ink on crisp, white, recycled cotton paper by Bella Figura. Susan chose the perfect balance of whimsical calligraphy and a formal san serif font.For the guest room box stickers, cups, napkins, & bar signs, we used a similar whimsical calligraphy font. The couple chose to go with the more traditional double-envelope option, with the inner envelope lined with a small, gold-foiled stripe.
“Working with Shindig was one of the best parts of my wedding planning experience! I knew I wanted a classic wedding with modern flair, and Shindig helped bring my vision to life. Trisha guided us through the entire process, from save-the-dates to formal invitations to the reception signage. I especially loved the wedding invitation, with its gorgeous calligraphy and gold striped envelope liner. It really set the tone for our big day! The custom bar menus describing our signature cocktails added that fun personal element that made our wedding unique. Shindig was wonderful from start to finish and made our wedding better than we could have imagined!” – Susan Clark
