Our favorite part of this job is thoughtfully expressing culture and style for people who with multi-layered identities. It means understanding not only our customer’s tastes, but also their preferences, identities and the etiquette and customs they want to include from all parts of their background. This is the kiln in which marriages are forged from love and the melding of backgrounds, communities and personalities. And we love our role in that process of artfully bringing together the details of each couple’s lives! #lovewhatwedo #sograteful
Brooklyn couple Alefiyah and Vilas envisioned a wedding replete with culture, romance, and nature – surrounded by their closest family and friends and asked us to create custom wedding invitations for the big day. The bride and groom are both Indian American but are from two different faiths – with many international guests traveling from abroad to New York City. They wanted to honor their Indian Hindu & Muslim backgrounds (and families) in their wedding while still representing their American style and tradition in a way that is true to who they are.
To do this, they chose their vendors carefully to help them bring the vision to life at the urban Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. We were honored to collaborate with the bride, Alefiyah, to create an architecture inspired wedding invitations and stationery that embodied their vision and honored their guests.
