If you grew up in NJ, you most likely visited the Liberty Science Center in State Liberty Park – Jersey City on a field trip. But have you returned as an adult? State Liberty Park has probably the best view of New York City. Situated right on the Hudson River, the park has a panoramic view of the Battery Park, 9/11 Tribute center area and Ellis Island. Aside from the Science Center, the park has biking trails, picnic areas and a two-mile promenade bordered by fantastic restaurants and well, you guessed, wedding venues.
Maritime Parc, one of two venues located in the park has two private event spaces and boasts the “Best Views of Manhattan” and we couldn’t agree more. The interior design is very clean and modern (our fave), so naturally when Madeline and Omar approached us to do their invites, we were elated.
They chose a classic nautical wedding palette of navy, white and gray, with a touch of soft pink. The design of the invitation however, was far from what you’d consider classic nautical. While it evoked a maritime feel, the design was far more contemporary.
The invitation was a flat invitation, mounted on a matte navy paper. Bordering the invitation details is a gray simple geometric lined pattern. The fonts chosen were primarily a collection of modern type faced fonts, with only a kiss of a script font always designed in the soft pink.
The “Details” and “RSVP” cards were stacked and nestled behind the invitation, bounded by a nautical rope inspired twine. We have to say it – the stacking formation makes it so much fun to open. Every layer has a fun new surprise!
Madeline and Omar, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day! We hope your day is spectacular as the views of the city your guests will soon enjoy. XO
