Rosa & Larry's Vow Renewals
I was approached by a client to create an entire wedding invitation ensemble for a pocketfold invitation she was wanting to create for vow renewals. She loved the chandelier and damask look and so using her color palette of chocolate, chartreuse and cream, I was able to create a beautiful set for her. I really loved the challenge of creating pieces that went together but weren't matchy-matchy. I loved the idea of the different sizes of the pieces that would go into the pocketfolds and how they would display together.
The client chose to outsource the printing of her choice and had the finished pieces delivered directly to her. I never saw the final printed pieces, especially put together in the pocketfold as shown, but I know that they turned out gorgeous.
Katy & Bump's Wedding
The couple that I designed this invitation set for are two of the most fun and laid-back people I know. They are both big into music. He plays guitar and she is a music education major, graduating this spring. They both come from a small town and wanted to somehow tie in some sort of reflection of that with their love of music. They loved the idea of having a tree with a swing or carved hearts and also somehow bringing in an illustration of a guitar somewhere into the design, as well.
They chose Emerald Green, Black and Silver for their wedding colors and so designing with a theme as they were wanting and sticking to the color palette did offer some challenges. I was worried about the design having too hard of an edge. However, I do feel that I was able to accomplish the goal and meet their expectations and was able to deliver designs that really fit the bill.
The invitations and coordinating pieces were printed on Neenah Classic Crest 110#C in Avon White. The envelopes are French Paper Poptone in Black Licorice.
Lisa & Steve's Wedding
I have known Lisa for nearly all of my life. I have known her longer than a lot of family members, actually. She and her husband-to-be approached me to design their invitations for their wedding and I couldn't have been more honored. Considering that they're getting married in Vegas, they were really wanting invites that replicated playing cards. They seemed most interested in creating something a little more sophisticated and upscale. I really wanted to create designs that would convey the look and feel of playing cards but also come up with elements that would be uniquely theirs and not just a design ordered from a catalog that anyone could choose.
The invites and coordinating pieces are printed on heavy linen cover stock and will have rounded corners. I chose both the paper and the rounded corners to give it more look and feel of an upscale playing card. The envelopes are French Paper Poptone Razzleberry and have a wraparound label in coordinating colors.
