Designs for Melissa's Rehearsal Dinner

Our client Melissa approched me about designing a logo, invitation and menu and matching place cards for her elaborate Rehearsal Dinner that would be taking place in Brooklyn. I worked with my husband on this project and we are thrilled with the way things turned out. My husband printed everything on white card stock and cut them to specification. The black background here is so you can see the white image of the designs as they would look after being cut. As always information has been changed to protect our clients:

The Logo

The Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

The Menu

The Matching Place Cards had a black chandelier with gold accents.
