fall inspiration series part 7: paper! (guest blogger Paper Moss)

from jacin: today's fall inspiration post (twitter #fallinspiration) comes to  you from the lovely emily & anna from paper moss.  i ADORE their style and upbeat personalities... they're just the kind of people you want to work with when choosing your paper details for the big day or any special event, for that matter!  (and make sure to check out their site, facebook and twitter while you're at it) thank you emily and anna for today's gorgeous and inspiring post :)

from emily & anna: It’s no secret that we get inspired by just about anything, but there’s something special about this time of year. We were beyond excited when Jacin asked us to join in the Fall Inspiration fun and share some of our insight on stationery. Many of our brides {and grooms} who are planning Autumn weddings sit down for their initial meeting with a general idea of what they want… or don’t want. Whether they are adamant about embracing traditional fall colors and designs or they insist on the antithesis, we will not rest until the invite suite of their dreams is created! {Okay, we do rest, but we still take it very seriously ;)} The best part about custom design is that every part of the evolution of the invitation is guided by the couple - it’s truly a reflection of them. We wanted to share with you a couple of our favorite suites as they are each so different but all have a distinct fall flavor.

1. Tiffany and Simon (who planned their wedding from Switzerland!) decided to stick with a traditional fall color palate but wanted to stay away from any typical autumn designs. We created an elegant design, {believe it or not, inspired by leaves} with an antique flair to accent the combination of modern and script fonts

2. Katie and Robert were planning their sunset reception at Thorn Creek Winery, outside of Cleveland. Right off the bat, they knew they wanted to stay away from traditional fall colors, so inspired by their reception location, we began with a warm merlot tone. Moving forward by adding navy and white, we created a stylized, seasonal adaptation of grape vines in a vineyard.

This is a sneak peek at Katie and Robert’s suite - they’re not even up on our website yet! Coming soon…

3. Tracy and Kevin knew they wanted to use fall designs but add some variation through the use of color and texture. Rustic tree branches and leaves in a moss green ink were a consistent design throughout their suite. Accents of navy in the font, address labels and a natural jute belly band provided a fresh but seasonal contrast.

We loved the belly band on this one - it adds a pop of texture and is also functional in holding all enclosures {rsvp, schedule of events, etc.} together! For more photos of Tracy and Kevin's suite, go to www.papermoss.com, click on paper > invitation{flat} > Tracy & Kevin.

We hope that you feel inspired! If you are planning a fall wedding, there are so many fun directions that you can take your invite suite… and it sets the stage for the rest of your day. Happy Planning!
