From Figmint Design...I would like to share the inspiration behind some of the custom work from my design studio Figmint Design. We recently worked on a wedding that combines Modern Glamour + Beagles + Fashion Inspiration. Figmint Design provided the creative direction, color palette and theme based on the couples personality and venue. That vision was translated to a bespoke invitation suite that was used to inspire all other visual elements (flowers, cake, decor, etc...).

Kelly Wearstler and her book Modern Glamour perfectly capture the vibe of The Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. As a big fan of all 3 of these, when Figmint Design had the opportunity to design something for a wedding there we jumped at the chance. The bride is a fashion designer and the couple wanted a modern celebration that was bold, minimalist yet glamorous, and personal. With big love for their 2 beagles, it seemed perfect to incorporate the love for their pups with the bride's love for fashion.

In the world of fashion, designers spend a lot of time looking at textile swatches and fabric content. So, what better way to incorporate fashion than to create mock textile swatches and faux garment hang tags as the invitation suite? Custom textile swatches with yellow stitching combined with custom silhouettes of their beagles to create a one of a kind invitation suite and theme. The couples initials K&C are branded on all elements of the invitation suite. The yellow, white, gray, & turquoise color palette along with geometric patterns capture the Hollywood Regency vibe of the venue. The flowers echo the retro minimalist glamour of the venue with orchids and succulents accented by pops of yellow. The cake is also influenced by the elements of the invitation suite complete with beagle silhouette, initials, and geometric motif.
