Working with designer, Ann Runyon Carter on her daughter’s wedding announcement was a bit of a love-fest. The mother and daughter team even brought a bottle of wine to our first appointment, which cemented our friendship instantly! Ann is best known in our area for her interior design work infused with a heaping dose of “southern soul” - and her expansive client list includes Mississippi-born celebrity Sela Ward.
Materials and quality were important to the Carters, who were planning a celebration for a large group of friends and family following an intimate family wedding. Incorporating the artwork of a local calligrapher that is a dear friend of hers was also part of the equation. After browsing through many beautiful samples, the deciding factor was a particular shade of grey engraving by the Arzburger team that spoke to both Ann and Becca.
Printed on a double-thick pearly-white card, the pale grey engraving of etherial hand-penned calligraphy is a classic. A soft grey tissue liner is a finishing touch to the envelope. Ann expressed during one of our meetings that “glitz” is not really her style; they love elegance and classic style with distinctive touches. Their invitation beautifully reflects the design theme seen in her interior design work.
