Good Show invitation suite featured on Ruffled!

We were so excited when Kate Ignatowski reached out to us about working together on a modern, New Orleans inspired shoot. The inspiration started with the venue — a hip new spot called 501 Union in Brooklyn. Kate envisioned a wedding with a New Orleans styled vibe with lots of candle-light and Spanish moss to go with the modern, refined elements of the space.  We created a custom version of our Good Show invitation suite in black and camel inks, which included invitations with lined envelopes, save the dates, menus and place cards to match her mood board. Calligrapher Patricia Mumau hand calligraphed the place cards and a Cognac tasting menu for the shoot, and even addressed the envelopes in her amazing new Murdock hand! The shoot was featured today on Ruffled, so be sure to check it out to see even more gorgeous images. Many thanks to Kate for inviting us to be a part of this amazing collaboration!
