Sepia Wedding Inspiration

I’ve been enthralled with Sepia since college…since the first time I picked up a piece of Sepia hued charcoal for my first figure drawing class.  Its rich tone is neither muddy or heavy but still intense and powerful.  Neither brown nor red, it meets the eye somewhere in the middle of a rosy amber glow that is nothing short of enchanting.  As for photography, Sepia conjures images of a bygone era’s slim smiles of women dressed in ruffles and rhinestones.
Sepia is simply intoxicating in its many shades and forms and this project is dedicated to all its wonder.

The hand painted paperie played a central role in this artful scene with the invitations inspired by vintage botanical prints.  Rose gold foil printing only elevated the suite with its richness.  Each and every piece from reception and place cards, to menus and programs boasted individually hand painted watercolor washes in whispers of amber, peach and gold.
