Classic & Traditional

Megan & Brian came to me to design wedding stationery that would be timeless and classic. They wanted their paper goods to portray a romantic yet formal affair.

I designed this elegant gatefold wedding invitation. The red tone-on-tone folio, enhanced with three-dimensional silver filigrees, opens to the invitation. Red foil accented the border, monogram, and filigree design element, with the text printed in a rich black.

The frame, insignia, and filigree were repeated on the remaining stationery pieces. From ceremony programs to dinner menus, reception signage to escort cards, and social media tented cards to personalized notecards, these elements gave this suite that cohesive look.

We absolutely LOVED working with Kathy at Sugar Pear Design! She got to know our taste and personalities from the beginning and created such an elegant suite of invitations, save-the-dates, and day-of-elements. We are over the moon with the quality of her designs and service. She was always very responsive to emails and never hesitated to help us with any questions or changes. Kathy also laid out a very detailed timeline for due dates, so we always knew when to get information to her. I would highly recommend her; you won't regret it! Thanks again, Kathy!
