We had the pleasure of being a part of an inspiration shoot for Eco-Beautiful Weddings for their Etsy Love Challenge in their Winter Issue. Lauren Grove of Every Last Detail contacted us and asked us to participate in the challenge. Of course we jumped at the chance. The challenge was to keep everything complete eco-friendly. Lauren presented us with this inspiration board of blacks and taupes and told us she wanted to do a modern take on eco-friendly.

And this is what we came up with

We designed the invitation suite using a modern mix of typography and a damask pattern. We kept everything eco-friendly by letterpressing the suiteĀ using soy based inks and 100% cotton tree free paper. We used recycled kraft paper for the envelopes and belly band. The menu card doubled as a menu card and place card. We created a circular tag for the place card and attached it to the menu card with recycled twine. We created a tri-fold program, this is a great way to save on cost and paper when you have a lot of information to include in your program.
