Real Invitation Suite: Celebrating a Decade of Love in Aspen

It is always an honor to create custom wedding stationery and invitations for our couples, but it is even more special when they return to our studio for additional celebrations, such as baby shower invitations, milestone birthday celebrations, and wedding anniversary parties.

Our journey with a remarkable couple began in 2012 when we had the honor of designing their wedding invitations. Little did we know that over a decade later, LHDH would be crafting invitations for their unforgettable 10-year anniversary celebration in Aspen, Colorado.

When they first approached us to create the invitations for this momentous occasion, we couldn’t contain our excitement! Their love story had blossomed over the years, much like the beauty of Aspen itself, and we were determined to capture that magic in every detail of this custom stationery suite.

A Mountainous Marvel: The Invitation

The focal point of this high-end invitation was a true work of art—a blind, sculpted, embossed custom die-cut pocket folder meticulously shaped to resemble the iconic Aspen mountains. In the bottom corner, a simple yet powerful “10 Years” served as a heartfelt reminder of their incredible journey together. As you opened the pocket, you were greeted by a familiar sight: an aspen leaf motif, a subtle nod and throwback to their original wedding invitation design. All of the textural elements of this invitation suite added a luxurious feel to each piece.

Inside this pocket of mountain magic, a world of adventure awaited. Each piece was carefully crafted, from the detailed ski-themed RSVP card to the snowmobile adventure card. All of them were letterpressed in both copper foil and blind debossed on handmade paper in shades of wheat and grey. The copper foil added a touch of warmth and contrast to the otherwise snow-inspired stationery.

As if that wasn’t enough, we incorporated a photograph of the couple from their wedding day, paired with a handwritten note that was included for each guest—a touching personal element that warmed every heart.

A Journey of a Thousand Memories: The Itinerary

A month before the anniversary trip, a thoughtful and luxe welcome gift was sent to all of the party guests to help set the tone for the celebration and get them excited for their trip to Aspen. The birch wood inspired box contained a detailed itinerary for the upcoming weekend, providing a sneak peek into the adventures that lay ahead. Also included were custom lasered leather luggage tags for each guest, a beautiful memento of the journey they were about to embark upon. Using the same ski inspired logo tied the luggage tags into the invitation suite design. The copper foiled cover of the itinerary booklet featured white wood-patterned paper originally used in the couple’s invitation suite, adding an extra layer of nostalgia to this already special occasion. The tags were bound together with a rustic leather cord, making them not just a piece of paper but a keepsake.

Inside the packet, the full itinerary unfolded, complete with a custom-illustrated map of Aspen, arrival instructions, and a heartfelt note from the couple. The itinerary and luggage tags were presented in custom-made white suede boxes, each one blind-debossed with the couple’s ski aspen logo—a testament to their unique love story.

A Warm Welcome: Custom Canvas Bags and More

As guests arrived, they were greeted with custom canvas welcome bags, a gesture that spoke volumes about the couple’s thoughtfulness. Inside each bag was a map detailing the weekend’s itinerary, leather coasters bearing a custom design, and chocolates adorned with aspen leaf and ski logos—sweet reminders of the beautiful journey they were about to embark upon. Preparing a thoughtful gift for your guests at hotel check-in is a special way to thank them for their support, and provide some helpful items for their stay. We love when our couples enlist our services for all stationery and day-of details needs for a wedding or celebration, not just for the invitation. It’s a great way to ensure all aspects of your event are cohesive.

A welcome tag in the shape of an aspen leaf, laser-cut with precision and tied with leather cord, added a personal touch to each bag. And in their guest rooms, a tray awaited, adorned with the couple’s favorite signature beverages and accompanied by a cocktail card, setting the stage for cozy evenings of laughter and reminiscing.

In the heart of Aspen, amidst snow-covered peaks and the embrace of dear friends, this 10-year wedding anniversary celebration was more than just an event—it was a testament to enduring love and the power of meaningful details. As we reflect on this incredible journey with our clients, we’re reminded that love, like the mountains, stands tall and steadfast, growing more beautiful with time. Here’s to a decade of love, laughter, and unforgettable moments in Aspen, Colorado. Cheers to the next chapter!
