We went to architecture school with Michael and were thrilled when he and Stephanie got engaged.  They are truly the sweetest, quirky couple we know.  After Michael had designed their save the dates they thought it would be less stressful to let us help with their invitations.   Their ceremony was held at The Lily Barn.  We used a hand drawn sketch of the venue site.  The path outlines their figures, creates a pond, and illustrates the cantilevered barn that the venue is famous for.   Abstracted yellow lilies are scattered around them as they stand beside the barn with their small dogs.  The accordion fold invite uses the text in a bold way with overlapping yellow and gray letterpress layers.  A small yellow envelope encloses a vellum map of the wedding and reception site.  The 110lb cotton paper was printed, folded, and sealed into a gray envelope with a simple, modern address label.
