Wedding Invitation: Jeanette and Matthew


Jeannette and Matthew had a special story that they wanted incorporated into their wedding invitation – they were getting married the same day their parents had in 1983 (Sapp), and 1989 (Carco).  The live oak tree on the invitation tells the story in its branches, and the brown and green color palette blend perfectly.

Wedding Invitation: Creagh and Timothy

Creagh and Timothy’s invitation was my first one where I actually worked with a wedding planner, rather than a bride.  It was a fun and smooth process, which was probably helped by the fact that the wedding planner is a friend of mine.  The bride wanted a simple and elegant design.  The finished product is absolutely lovely:
