valentina and scott will be flying over the atlantic this september for their italian destination wedding. their ceremony will be held at the breathtaking cappella palatina in the royal palace of palermo, followed by an evening reception at castello di solanto. this ancient castle was built on the side of a cliff overlooking the mediterranean sea. they wanted their invitation package to reflect the same romance and aged textures of both structures. this was achieved through overlapping lace patterns, a letterpress and blind debossed invitation and textured paper inserts. the suite was bundled together with a satin fuchsia bow which was inspired by the color of the bride’s fabulous shoes! the mailing envelopes were hand addressed in gold ink by katie from the pretty pen.
in addition to the english version, they also requested an italian suite for valentina’s relatives. we were extremely excited to create our first bilingual invitations!
we wish this couple a dream wedding at their romantic italian castle by the sea!
