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 fΓͺte in Austria's Wachau Valley, the birth place of her fiancΓ© 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!)
