Invitations with Authentic Elegance

We spoke to one of our brides about her experience using CREATE Studios for her wedding invitation, and below is her story.

I was married at the Mansions on Fifth Avenue in Pittsburgh in front of a small group of family and friends on October 1, 2011. My husband and I are both writers, so we wrote our own vows, selected poems and prayers together and crafted the perfect ceremony that was unique to us. We knew that our wedding invitations should also speak to the elegance and originality of our special day, and Create Studios was the perfect fit.

At first we met with Jody and told her all about our big day. We then had the chance to touch and feel the papers and quickly saw that we had endless possibilities. We never felt overwhelmed because we were guided based on her expertise. The design of the invitation took shape as an art form: the paper, fonts, ribbon, customized medallion, and envelopes. Create Studios even designed a wedding logo for us that we not only used on our invites but throughout our wedding! The logo is so special to me.

The final product was an invite that no other couple has nor will ever have! Truly authentic elegance that wow-ed our guests. It stirred so much anticipation for guests that the wedding itself had to live up to the invite’s expectations! And it was just as special of a day as the invite promised. I highly recommend Create Studio Invites, and look forward to working again with this amazing company on my next special event.
– Gina Vensel

Gina and Scott are such a beautiful, romantic couple with a ton of chemistry. Their vision for their wedding was close to their hearts; very personal, intimate, and elegant with the scent of red roses and swaths of cream filling the room. Bridesmaids dresses were sleek, black strapless columns. All perfectly appointed to set off the rich, turn of the century interior at the Mansions on Fifth.

CREATE took these romantic cues and went to the drawing board. First, CREATE designed a custom logo using Gina and Scott’s initials; perfectly fitting them together to form one. Next, logo application. Gina is a real head turner. She has an effortless, unselfconscious style; she wears clothes, accessories and make-up with a confidence that only comes from a true individual. This inspired CREATE to emboss the logo, like a piece of jewelry, on a silver seal and apply it to the front of their invitation. A palette of pearlescent black, cream and red stock with a cream satin band tied everything together in a soft, romantic way. We were so pleased with the final result. And, so happy for Gina and Scott.

Invitation Inspiration: Radiant Orchid

Invitation Inspiration: Radiant Orchid- Pantone’s 2014 Color of Year: A Royal Wedding

Designers wait with baited breath for PANTONE© to select the Color of the Year. It sets the years trends in the world of graphic and interior design, fashion, event décor and more.

This year, PANTONE© announced that Radiant Orchid, with it’s spectrum of fuchsias and deep purples would influence and renew the world of design. The design community applauded this gorgeous palette, whose happy nature is rich and regal.

Of course, CREATE was dying to put this color palette to use and was thrilled when bride to be Charlotte and her fiancé TJ literally went, radiant orchid! Working with Bob Sendall at All in Good Taste Productions, we began to create their kingdom by immediately crowning their invitation suite with a custom designed logo made up of their names and crowned with a charm-ing jeweled heart.

For the couple’s unique Save the Date, CREATE designed this spectacular waterfall of cards strung together with a decadent satin ribbon that sparkled with undertones of the entire radiant orchid spectrum.

We then transitioned to designing the invitation and print accessories with romantic shades of eggplant and blushing shades of violet, all crowned with their logo; now a custom die cut platinum heart that embellished menus, programs, the wedding cake and more.

The royal couple danced the night away at one of the most radiant, heartfelt weddings CREATE can remember.

For The Love of The Game

Just in time for the Super Bowl, sports enthusiasts will revel in this athletic-inspired invitation. By exploring the look and feel of the game, I designed an invitation that is sure to have guests experiencing the thrill of sports at their fingertips.

This invitation includes a pigskin trim for a football feel, inlaid ticket holder, turf trim, laser cut logo with a nod to ESPN, real ticket insert to RSVP and dirty shoelaces to hold everything together.

My goal with this invite was to design an invitation that created the sense of pride and excitement conjured during the athlete biographies aired on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown and College Game Day. A sports invitation from Create Studios is just the ticket for your athlete’s next celebration!
