Collaborations that POP!

In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Andy Warhol Museum, I thought I would feature the ultimate artistic collaboration in this installment of #InvitationInspirations. And what would an homage to the ultimate pop art icon be without pops of color and unexpected twists on the traditional?

In 2013, I was honored to design the wedding invitations of Jazz GREAT, trumpet player Sean Jones and the incomparable Stacey White. This couple is inspired by L-O-V-E. They love bright colors. They love music. And most of all they love each other. I teamed up with the extraordinary event designer Sean Gray of SGI International. Sean’s unbridled enthusiasm and unique perspective gave us a color blocked origami invitation concept with a boxed presentation that exploded into pops of vibrant color upon opening!

The couple’s logo was created to intertwine Sean and Stacy’s names, in the spirit of love. And to tie it all together, we utilized a unique ribbon with a colorful, musical quality. When the bridesmaids selected their dresses, the chose a style from each selected pop of color.

The bride and groom celebrated with their guests at the whimsical and wonderful Jay Verno Studios in Pittsburgh’s South Side and was catered by the ever delectable Common Plea Catering.

This week’s Invitation Inspiration board features the wedding of Stacey White and Sean Jones at Jay Verno Studios. Because Sean is a famous trumpet player, the invitation was influenced by the couple’s love of jazz and the vibe of New Orleans. The color really popped on this fold out invitation for guests! The wedding was coordinated with Sean Grey International, Allison McGeary Floral & Common Plea Catering.
