Grey monochromatic invitation with wax seal details.

masculine chic

When we hear the title "50 Shades of Grey" we think sexy, modern, elegant, chic, and yes...masculine. This styled shoot was exactly all those elements. The invitation suite used five different shades and textures of grey designer papers.  A monogram wax seal and ribbon adorned corners is simple and elegant, yet bold and modern. A light ombre grey is printed for the envelope liner and later used for the menus. City Club and Downtown Los Angeles map takes you to the National City Building from any L.A. freeway.

Guest will receive these and know it's not a barnyard wedding. Come in your sleekest suits and backless silk dresses, drink martinis and get a room!

ombré menus

Take the elements of your invitation and bring little pieces of it into the rest of your wedding stationery. These ombré menus mimic the invitation's envelope liner and is detailed with the same monogram wax seal.

table number

By mimicking little pieces of the invitation you coordinate from the introduction to the reception. This table number uses the same ribbon adorned corners as the invitation.

Place cards

Calligraphy is always a nice elegant touch to customize every seat. The monogram wax seal is echoed here as well, sealed on a slate linen card stock with white ink calligraphy.

groomsmen gifts

Why not complete this 50 Shades of Grey theme with ties for groomsmen gifts. Display them delicately with personal name tags using the same ribbon corners on slate linen paper and calligraphy in white ink. It not only makes an awesome detail shot, it's a gift that they can utilize after the big day.
