Maybe it's my appreciation of history + all things antique. Or maybe it's that I'm a sucker for stories of family heritage. When this couple came to me asking for a new family coat of arms to start THEIR family heritage, I break out the monogram encyclopedias (with glee, I might add).
For this couple, we incorporated the acorn + nettle leaves from their respective family coat of arms as well as their shield stripes. To add something new, we used their initials along with some majestic horses to flank the shield. After all, when the couple meets training + riding on the polo field, horses are a must.
Deep eggplant purple, classic pinstripes, luxe cotton stock + fine letterpress printing - it doesn't get any more regal than this.
