The Laura wedding invitation suite is named after my great-great-grandmother and namesake, Laura Stump Dumm. For this suite, I tried to visualize what a 1899 wedding celebration in Ohio would be like. I pictured my great-great-grandmother wearing her mother's handmade wedding dress and carrying a bouquet of daisies. The wedding would take place outside under blooming trees, and family, friends and neighbors would bring food (lots of farm fresh veggies and homemade pies!) for the picnic reception. The day would end with fireworks or a parade.
I'm not sure of my great-great-grandparents' actual wedding date, but I do know they were married in 1899. My great-great-grandfather was born on the 4th of July, so I decided to make that their wedding date. Red and greige seem a fitting color combination for July 4th park wedding, and the embroidered daisies fit with the summer picnic vibe. Thanks to the rich colors and classic fonts, this wedding suite could also work really well for a rustic or vintage-inspired fall or winter wedding.
