custom invitations: hudson loves chelsea

A few months ago, my friend Danielle (of Danfredo Photos + Films) had a crazy/brilliant idea for a wedding she wanted to photograph.  The happy couple?  Her adorable adopted dachshund dogs, Hudson and Chelsea.  That's right-- a dog wedding.  

Danielle's idea quickly turned into a great collaboration among Philadelphia wedding vendor friends, and I loved creating a special invitation suite for Hudson and Chelsea's big day.  Claire Hudson (Pennys & Stamps) created a beautiful watercolor portrait of the couple to be combined with my writing.  

The invitation itself was long and narrow, like Hudson and Chelsea.  The watercolor portrait from Pennys & Stamps is showcased on cream paper, with wedding details below in mint.  

To further emphasize the shape of their invitations + add a little more fun to their guests' mailboxes, Hudson and Chelsea's wedding "tagline" was added to the back of their outer envelopes.  

The response card was a clean and updated classic with mint ink on grey paper. I wrote guest names on each card in the same mint ink for a seamless look.  The reply envelope reversed the color scheme.
