Perhaps one of my favorite projects to date for Just Ink On Paper. Sheilah and Chris came to me looking for custom invitations for their DC wedding this past October at The Fairfax at Embassy Row. A stunning location with presidential ties (the restaurant within the Hotel was a favorite of Jackie O's).

Both Sheilah and Chris have strong connections with DC and wanted to tie that into their wedding stationery. The challenge was to incorporate that without looking too "touristy". Their pieces were designed to be a "nod" to DC without being a blatant image. The Save The Dates worked perfectly with the decor of The Farifax, something very important to Sheilah. The wax seal came from a brainstorming session one afternoon while looking at a few designs and plays a prominent factor in their invitations as well. What I love about these save the dates is the incorporation of the black pocketfold. I think a few brides shy away from black for fear of looking to harsh, but it can be done beautifully.
