Classic Casino

I love when someone’s venue really drives the inspiration for their suite. Brynn and Scott were married this past May at the Canfield Casino right in the heart of charming downtown Saratoga Springs, New York. When you hear Casino, most likely you think of Vegas and or a sad river boat… fear not my friends! This “Casino” is a classic, gorgeous historical building that once functioned as a Casino and is now owned by the city of Saratoga and is a historical landmark. Brynn really wanted their invitation suite to reflect the amazing venue while still having a slight nod to the history of the Casino.

The entire suite is flat printed on Ecru Crane Lettra stock. The invite was duplexed to be 220# while the other pieces are on 110# stock. Brynn had the idea to do a very delicate pattern for the liner/ back of the card that was made up of playing card symbols. She wanted to create a central motif to carry throughout the suite as well as her day of items so we came up with the idea of doing a poker chip {for her day of, she actually made real chips for her place cards- so smart!} for her logo. The fonts in this piece are equally as important as the artwork as they work hard to create a certain feeling. My favorite piece is the RSVP playing card- such a fun touch! We incorporated small moments of gold in the liners and the RSVP envelope which is always an affordable way to get a bit of shine without breaking the budget.

This suite makes me want to grab a cocktail, wear a sparkly dress and attempt to gamble a few clams!
