Get to Know Elizabeth and David

Looking for go-to guidance? Invitation inspiration? Dreamy day-of details ? Get to know our fab Bespoke couples!

Q: Tell us a bit about you and your spouse.

We met post-grad living in New York City during a night out at the Red Lion in the West Village and immediately connected over a shared love of live music. We now live together and work in New York City.

I work in investor relations at a private credit fund and David does real estate investments for a hospitality group. When not in the city, we can often be found up in Litchfield County, Connecticut, where we got married.

Q: What stands out about your experience with Bespoke?

We loved working with the team at Bespoke because they made the experience about the couple. The process started by the team asking us styles of invitations and paper we were drawn to, general inspiration for our wedding, and things that we didn't like.

We never felt like they pushed us in one direction, but the team was always a resource for when we needed inspiration. We had no idea how many different types of paper, font types, fabrics, shapes, (the list is never ending!) could be incorporated and they proved they are truly experts in the space.

The design was inspired by the tiny mayflowers which grow abundantly in the woods of Litchfield County - a symbol of hope, new beginnings and protection. The bride asked for the invitation liner to look like wildflowers, collected on a walk, and pressed between glass. We loved creating this for her!

Q: What influenced your vision for your invitations and stationery?

Our invitations were inspired by our venue/location and our relationship. We shared our first "I love you," got engaged, and had chosen to get married in Litchfield County, so there was a lot we wanted people to learn and experience during our wedding weekend.

We wanted to ensure each detail gave our guests insight into us as a couple and why the area was important to us–to really invite our guests to feel a part of our love story. Our map of the area was a personal favorite of our invitation!

Hand calligraphy was engraved in platinum ink and letterpress in a cool gray. Tiny mayflowers are scattered across in blind debossing. The hand-dyed silk ribbon connects with the purple pansies in the liner.  An adorable map of the couples’ favorite spots in the area is letterpessed on handmade gray paper.

Q: Any tips related to invitations, wedding inspiration and registry that might help other couples?

Stay focused on what you like. You will have so many opinions floating around you, whether it be family or the vendors you've hired.

Ask for help when you want guidance or inspiration, but don't be afraid to prioritize what you and your partner like. At the end of the day, everyone is there to make your vision come to life, and if you're happy, they will be too.
