Wedding Invitation Suite: Peacock Glory

Special to OneWed from Jessica Goldschmidt of DOSSIE-A Nicole and Joe’s vision of their wedding included the peacock, its feather and the feather’s jewel tones. Since she was using the feather throughout the decor of her event, she wanted the actual feather somehow incorporated into the invitation suite as well. She wanted the invitations to have an antique feel to them. Upon doing some research, I came across a collage of theater playbills from the 1800's. One in particular, from the Olympic Theater, inspired me to infuse banners with whimsical foliage. I also spent some time looking into the reception hall, the Clarks Landing Yacht Club. I immediately fell in love with the room’s look and feel – antique gold colored chairs against a warm neutral backdrop - I wanted to mimic that somehow in Nicole and Joe’s suite. I thought the 1920s would fit well with Nicole and Joe’s vision, and I recreated the look of a "headpiece" for the invitation. I also replicated that look on the back of the menu and the front of the program to maintain the continuity. I picked rich, warm colors for the paper product, and picked a linen finish, because up until the 1850’s paper was made from recycled linen (and cotton) rags. I was also able to recreate the inspiration I pulled from the Yacht Club by using the antique gold colored ribbon. Using a warm neutral palette as the base, plus the innovative construction of the peacock feather, allowed it and it’s colors to take center stage. I believe this maintained Nicole and Joe’s vision while giving them something completely unique.
