Other than the obvious – they’re getting married! – one of the best things about having friends get engaged is that I often get to help out with designing their save-the-dates, invitations, and other wedding paper goods. I just love getting to help celebrate their special day by creating designs that fit their unique personalities and wedding styles. Here’s part one of a wedding showcase…
Emily & Dave: These guys wanted something playful, graphic and tied to their color scheme. I loved the bright yellow + navy blue combo – it’s so cheery and fun, and especially the huge pop of color when you opened the envelope.
Jenny & Mike: When two of our best buds decided to get married in Big Sky, Montana, it was really important to show everyone what they loved so much about their favorite get away spot: the mountains. The simplicity of the thermographic invite with nature’s silhouette demonstrated the local focus and their no fuss style.
Liz & Ted: Asheville, NC is one of the most gorgeous autumn settings in the country, so when they picked October at the amazing Biltmore, Liz and Ted immediately knew the fall theme had to come to life. The invite also needed to communicate the formality of the south, and the bold red + black color scheme.
Sarah & Andy: Although they wanted a truly elegant affair, these two wanted their save-the-date to showcase the more bubbly side of black tie. We ended up with a champagne-inspired, letterpress card. The invite itself, also a letterpress design, used the same merlot color with some black added in, and the graceful curves of their initials.
