Lover's of art and the touch of old world romance, Nikia came to me with a vision of bringing her penchant for Italy, romance, the philosopher Rumi, and Avian artwork into one place. They escaped to one of the most ancient civilizations in Italy and eloped. Yes, think all things lace and marble, and pure romance.  Because they eloped, they wanted to let their friends and family know through a sort of treasured memento; something that was quintessentially vintage, to capture that old-world feel of Italy, with an added touch of softness and love. 

To accomplish this, I design a very romantic but minimal suite. The design felt like a day in the country of Italy, with florals and birds. Scripted calligraphy letterpressed into 220lb Crane's Lettra cardstock with the faintest of blush and a soft mustard yellow. The announcement slid into a two color flat printed vellum sleeve that had gold foil details and the words of Rumi,  "" foil stamped. 

The announcement was wrapped with hand dyed blush silk ribbon, and placed in a cigar box, which was engraved with their initials.
