Mike and Morgan’s black and white modern wedding design

I am SO excited to share some new design we’ve created here at The Goodness! I say “new” lightly because I work on this months before I get to share them with you, but they are worth the wait! Mike and Morgan wanted something classic and modern, that matched the aesthetic of their wedding venue, The Citizen Hotel. It started out with an order for a monogram and evolved into wedding invitations, invitations for a separate reception in Southern California, escort cards, and thank you cards!

Let’s start with the first thing we designed: the monogram! Simple, classic type with a fancy ampersand. We went through quite a few to get the perfect ampersand! It’s the little details that count.

Mike and Morgan, then decided to get invitations done as well. We started with the monogram as a base and went from there. The crosshatch pattern and the “date dot” was a detail that we were able to carry through the entire suite.

Another of my favorite details is the little icons for meals on the RSVP. They came in handy when we created the escort cards! I also love the wraparound address labels on the RSVP envelopes that say, “Let’s Celebrate!”

Mike’s mom liked the invitations so much that she had me design another suite for the reception she was hosting in Southern California. We wanted to keep a similar look, but make them different. These overall had a lighter look to them and again we used the “date dot” and the tag line “A reception for the newlyweds.” throughout to differentiate this suite.

We were on a roll with all the design so Mike and Morgan decided to have us do their escort cards and thank you cards! The escort cards are my favorite! I love that we used the dot element and used the food icons from the RSVP to let the server know what each guest had ordered.

Here they are all set up at the wedding.

Morgan found the little chair holders (so cute) and made a sign that said “Please take your seat”.

We had their monogram printed on their photo folders for The Shot Spot. (our awesome photo booth!)

I LOVE the way that Mike and Morgan incorporated their monogram into the wedding favors. I’ll talk more about those in their wedding post coming up next!

After the wedding, we used one of their wedding photos to create these super cute matching thank you cards.

What’s even cooler, is when you have The Goodness do your wedding design, we get to make your photo stuff match too! These are the CDs for the photography. We even make matching DVD menus! Fun!

Wedding invitation, escort cards, DVD case for the photographs, RSVP from reception invite, and thank you card!

We had so much fun working on this design with Mike and Morgan! Everything turned out great! Next up we are going to share their wedding photos!
