I met Raquel when we both worked at a nail art salon in New York together. We became fast friends, and I was excited to gift her with wedding invitations and stationery when she and her longtime boyfriend Lason got engaged. She also made me a bridesmaid, so I happily contributed bridal shower invitations.
The other bridesmaids and I decided to theme her shower around one of her favorite books, The Night Circus, so these invitations (which were emailed) matched the colors of the event - black, white, and red, with a hint of blush.
For her wedding, Raquel chose The Montauk Club in Brooklyn, so she wanted everything to match the art deco vibe of the building. She wanted something vintage in burgundy. These were printed on 110lb linen and mailed in navy blue envelopes addressed in rose gold. I also created the dinner menus, and the logo was projected onto the ceiling at the reception, as well as used for the labels on the favors (custom candles from Raquel and Lason's own candle company, The Melting Library).
Not long after the wedding, Raquel and Lason found out they were expecting! Baby Makai was born in the winter, so for their baby shower theme, Raquel requested a snowy scene with some illustrated baby animals. That sneaky raccoon was my favorite to draw!
