My Best Friend's Wedding

Christina and I have been best friends since literally ago zero. Our parents were friends for years before we were born, and since she and I were in diapers, we've been joined at the hip. Almost a year and a half ago, she called me in the middle of the night, screaming, and I knew she'd just gotten engaged (and that I was her first call). I think it was the very next day that we started dreaming up the details for her August fรชte in Austria's Wachau Valley, the birth place of her fiancรฉ Leo. 

 
 

Knowing her as well as I do, I barely needed Christina to tell me about her vision before I started drafting her invitation suite. It had to be black and white. It had to be modern and minimalist. And of course, I had to be English-German bilingual. The result was a quintessentially "Christina & Leo" invitation, lettered in a combination of script and small caps, and printed on luscious 220lb Crane's Lettra.

(The wedding weekend itself was a gorgeous, memorable event. More photos of that to come!)
