What happens when THE paper designer for all the fabulous, high end clients gets married herself? Well, pure art! Our friend and bride, Vanessa Kreckel of the acclaimed company Two Paper Dolls married her wife, Lauren in a beautiful Maine destination wedding. Vanessa is known for designing some of the most gorgeous, luxurious, and outside the box invitations and paper suites. Her work will drop your jaw the ground and invite you back for more! She definitely knocked it out of the park with her own invites and stationery — so we wanted to share some of the magic!
Vanessa & Lauren’s guests received this beautiful destination wedding invitation suite (I still have mine y’all it was THAT pretty!). The focal point is the wooden invitation, laser engraved with all the details of their wedding.
Tying into the vibe they created was a bit of unconventional verbiage: Lauren Elizabeth Martin and Vanessa Diane Kreckel together with our children, Landon and Cash, invite you to celebrate the greatest love we have ever known as we get married in a beautiful place, surrounded by beautiful people. Truer words have not been spoken. The suite was perfectly summed up with: dress snappy, be comfortable, you’ll be in a lot of pictures.
The accompanying cards included a double-sided letterpress itinerary card, a letterpress RSVP card and a wooden tag in the shape of the state of Maine that bore the following quote from Tao: the journey is the reward. An envelope liner with vintage drawings from Maine’s cost was nestled into a clean, ivory envelope. The most perfect touch was the rainbow color story of vintage stamps, a collection that varied across each envelope.
We absolutely LOVED these invitations! Aside from the custom language that graced the suite, the texture and unique details of each piece created such an impact for all. It invited everyone to prepare for all the love and excitement that they witnessed on that June day and became a special keepsake that none of us will be letting go anytime soon!
