What an honor to be featured today on The White Wren, celebrating their one year anniversary!
It was my pleasure to collaborate with fellow members of The White Wren Collaborative to bring this intimate vow renewal to life. This little invitation suite was mailed all the way to Tampa, Florida—to take part in our collaboration at The Orlo, a historic home turned into the coziest wedding and event venue.
These fine art wedding invitations bring formal elements together with loose calligraphic script. I designed a custom formal crest with hand-drawn scrolls and embellishments; inside the crest sits a hand-lettered monogram featuring the couple’s intertwining initials. The crest is echoed in a pattern placed into the main envelope liner. The details card showcases the venue—a sweet little historic home with Florida foliage peeking around the rooftop.
Hand-calligraphed vows were the focal point for this stationery design… carefully scripted for husband and wife to read to each other during their renewal ceremony. If you’ve followed my story for awhile now, you know how much I adore vows: the essential central component of your wedding day. It is always an honor to script these vows and be reminded of my own commitment to serving my husband in marriage. There’s nothing sweeter or more meaningful than these words, exchanged between two soul mates on their first day of forever as husband and wife.
A word from Kenzie, our photographer and the dreamer behind this collaboration:
The inspiration behind the shoot was focusing on the intimacy of marriage and celebrating that fact. That is why I wanted to tell the whole story of a vow renewal — from getting ready together to a gathering with friends. On a traditional wedding day the bride and groom don’t get ready together, and sometimes don’t see each other until the ceremony. Weddings are a beautiful thing because they signify new love and the beginning of building a life together. A vow renewal has so much more depth to it, because you’re celebrating all the ups and downs you’ve had together and that no matter what, they are still your person. Our models Danette and Adam have been married for 18 years. It was such an honor capturing each moment with them and knowing that the love that has grown between them through the years was forever captured in these images.”
