Lavish + edgy: foil stamped wedding invitations

Courtney and Evan fell for our Fugue foil stamped wedding invitations and didn’t stray far from the original. They opted to keep the lavish, double foil look but personalized it by switching to our ultra modern #10 size card and adding hand calligraphy from Sarah Hanna. The end result is bold and edgy and a perfect compliment to their Washington, DC museum wedding.

Fugue, along with all of designer Kamal’s designs, are on sale through the month of October!
