When my closest friend for over 20 years was “finally” getting married, I was ecstatic, and when he asked me if I could design their wedding invitations, I was more than just ecstatic…I was honored. Illana, the bride-to-be, wanted a very formal invitation using black and white as the color scheme. Their marriage will be held at the local county club in Staten Island, New York which sounded like the perfect backdrop for their nuptials. After giving them 3 choices to select from, they chose their favorite and I quickly went to work. The invitation is simple yet sophisticated and perfect for the two soon to be newlyweds.
