Lara + Jared - Vintage Gramophone Wedding Invitations

Glowing bride Lara & and her fiance Jared tied the knot earlier this month in beautiful Lake George, New York at the historic Sagamore Resort.  In addition to the challenges of putting together a gorgeous destination wedding, these two lovebirds had to make most of their planning decisions from their new home overseas in Liberia!

The couple wanted an invitation that was both elegant and fun with some vintage flair...and they really, really wanted it to feature an old fashioned phonograph!  I was inspired by images of vintage gramophone records to design these fun invitations in shades of grey, yellow, and cream presented inside a hand-cut paper "record sleeve".

A window on the front of the sleeve showed off the "record label" featuring an image of a phonograph along with their names, and the window on the reverse showed the same image with their wedding date. 

Their guests removed the invitation from the sleeve to reveal an elegant square panel invitation with coordinating belly band.

Coordinating inserts included a Directions/Accommodations/Map card, RSVP Postcard, and a Rehearsal Dinner Invitation.

Congratulations, Lara & Jared!
