Wedding Invitation: Jeanette and Matthew

carco-invite

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:

I would love to hang this print in my family room.  Technically I could design one myself – but why, when someone else has perfected the idea?

As we are ALREADY nearing August and the end of summer, fall is just around the corner (seriously, this summer has FLOWN by!).  Pantone has chosen some lovely colors for this fall’s fashion trends, which again include the color of the year, “Tangerine Tango.”

My favorites are Honey Gold, Ultramarine Green, Bright Chartreuse, and Rhubarb from the men’s section.  Looking forward to adding them to my fall layering and accessories and maybe even fall and Christmas decor.  This year needs to slow down a little bit…

Wedding Invitation: Diedra and Tyler

I was recently hired to design a wedding invitation based on the story of how the soon to be married couple had met.  Although it was quite a challenge to fit all of the words on one card (and make them look pretty), I was SO happy with the results!

Here is the sweet story-style invitation for Diedra and Tyler:
