BESPOKE: heidi and michael

I am so happy to finally share this wedding invitation with you! Heidi and Michael commissioned Tulaloo to design and create a custom wedding invitation through our Bespoke design services. They wanted something really special and personal to invite friends and family to their intimate ceremony and dinner reception in November. Heidi and Michael live in California and celebrated their marriage with a winemaker's dinner, so we designed their invitation around that theme. In addition to incorporating the winery concept, we worked with a autumnal palette and lots of textures to give the invitation a warm and welcoming feel.
The invitation is letterpressed in a plum ink on Lettra cotton stock. After being letterpressed, the lovely Amanda Brooke of ARMart painted a watercolor border of grape vines across the top of each invitation. Yes, every single invitation had an original watercolor painting on it! The painted invitations were then wrapped in natural unryu paper and sealed with a wide mahogonay colored velvet ribbon and a wine cork. We packaged the completed invitations in a cork lined, burgandy linen box for mailing.
This was such a wonderful project to work on and Heidi and Michael woldn't have been more lovely. Congratulations to you both on your beautiful wedding!

Almost six months later, we are STILL getting requests from friends for more information about our invitations! hey were above and beyond what I ever could have imagined, but were exactly what we wanted: special, pretty, original, and memorable.

We also very much loved the invitations Tulaloo did for our reception. There were elegant and fun, and again, we got tons of compliments. I can't imagine anyone not getting something that thrills them from Tulaloo. :-)
