It’s no secret we love Minted. Their ever so gorgeous designs and community-centric stationery company are just some of the things that make us fans. Minted just came out with a new wedding invitation line and to celebrate it, they asked us to pick a design and create a photoshoot inspired by it. We left it in the hands of the pros, Yelena Johnson of Stylish Soiree and a fantastic team of vendors. She dreamed up a wedding from invitation to inspiration that you will go gaga for.

Yelena Johnson of Stylish Soiree chose the Twine wedding invitations for the inspiration for this shoot. Inspired by bold typography with black and white stripes, this wedding invite is a like a pair of black Louboutins. You can style it in many different ways, but it will be effortlessly chic no matter what. Yelena knocked it out of the park along with photos by Tinywater Photography.

    Hi All, Sorry for the late response, but the necklace is from Francesca's Collections, the black and white french stripe ribbon was sourced from a seller on Etsy, the plates were part of the David Stark for West Elm collection. Thank you all for such kind words - this shoot was SO much fun to create. Warm Wishes, Yelena

    This is seriously amazing, the whole thing. We just ordered our invites from Minted and I can't wait! We also own an air plant company and it's so awesome to see such creative and stunning use of air plants in wedding design. We plan on using air plants in our own wedding design when we get married in October and this just made me that much more excited for it. Beautiful work! Stunning photos too!

  • Maureen on June 29, 2012

    I follow this blog daily through my email and through the Ruffled site itself. It gives me so many ideas for my tight budget wedding. My colors are black & white with a peacock accent. I can't really say what invitation I would pick on the ruffled site if I had the choice because honestly i never thought I would have a choice. I have been planning to make my own invitations since the beginning of my wedding because of the costs. Every invitation on the site is beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -Maureen B.
