Real Wedding: Sarah & Jim's gocco'd napkins

as soon as sarah contacted me and sent me her the inspiration board on etsy(pictured below), i fell completely in love with the style wedding she was planning.

she said her main colors are
coral, gold, and mocha with touches of chocolate and robbin's egg blue.
after running through a few different design ideas Sarah created herself, here's the proof we went with.
sorry for the large gap here

and here's the outcome of her wedding napkins - funny thing, i work on top of a sheet to protect my workspace, i usually don't photograph my work on this type of background... but in this case i did since one of Sarah's accents is robbin's egg blue, which really makes these napkins pop.

here's an up close view of the colors used:
these are ivory napkins with custom mixed coral & metallic gold gocco ink.
i really wish i had a better camera that could capture the shine
that the gold ink puts off in the light!

just a glimpse of the workspace as i gocco'd... i just about squealed when i first opened the lid of my gocco to see how these looked... i just love them! it's always an exciting experience to see the outcome of the design process, especially when the final product turns out like this!

and another view =)

these turned out so different from my own wedding napkins, and i loved how beautiful they are and really can't wait to start working on my upcoming orders.

i love helping brides personalize their weddings, so if you are interested in custom designed paper goods please convo me via my etsy shop.
