Destination Wedding

Angie is such a fun bride to work with. She knew she wanted bright colors, and an invitation suite that focused on FUN for their wedding in Hawaii. So we started with the shape of Oahu, and added just that: color and fun. The suite is offset printed, on 110lb cotton paper.

Wyatt Ink Invitation

I created an illustration of two palm trees forming a heart, which we repeated on the RSVP postcard:

For the RSVP, we created space for each guest to write their name, as well as their “favorite shave ice flavor”, and “favorite dance song” (did I mention how fun this bride is?):

Wedding in the Palouse

Brooke and Edward are using their wedding as a celebration of the combination of their Jewish and Nez Perce heritage. Finding ways to reflect this marriage of cultures in their wedding invitations was such an interesting process that we embarked on together.

We used wheat grasses to symbolize the Palouse landscape, contrasting colors to represent the couple, a quote from each culture, and wove in an eagle feather and Star of David. The map continues the theme, while using additional symbols of meaning to Brooke and Edward.

I love B & E’s modern yet playful aesthetic, and am so glad I got to be a part of this project!

Halloween Madness!

I feel so lucky to get to work with Tressa and John on their crazy creative Halloween wedding.  Guests are coming in full 80’s garb, and will be treated to food trucks, magic shows, and much more (including a wedding, of course).

For the Save the Date, they had their awesome photographer Barbie Hull make lenticular photos that transform from a normal, sweet photo of the couple, to a crazy image of John pulling Tressa’s head off, depending on how you hold it! I love this couple. Have I mentioned that? We than attached the photo to my design, announcing the occasion.

The Invitation and RSVP/ Information cards continued the theme. With many layers, we created the vintage, grungy, creepy and fun image they were going for. I particularly love the tear-off RSVP postcard:

All of the designs are double-sided, full color offset printing, with die cut corners. The result: some sweet wedding stationery.




Arts & Crafts-Style

I thought I’d share a recent project I did. I was happy to meet Susan and Bob, a really sweet couple, with a love of Arts and Crafts design. I started my design with their favorite font, and built it up from there. The inspiration for the pattern came from an actual Arts and Crafts stained-glass lamp. We started with a Save the Date:

Then followed with stacked invitations, and a postcard-RSVP, and a simple envelope seal:

Invitations for Brookes

I got to plunge into a pretty cool project this week, which I thought I’d share. Brookes, a bride in need, came to me after receiving a very delayed wedding invitation sample in the mail from an online company, and not feeling happy with it at all.  We quickly kicked into gear, and managed to settle on a design, and finish the job in just a couple days. The wedding style is romantic and whimsical in white, purple and green. With this in mind, I designed the invites based on the strings of hanging orchids that will be featured in the ceremony. The RSVP card then hangs on an actual string, attached by a orchid cutout. The invitation-maker in me was definitely upset with the invitation-designer in me, for deciding that a rush project should involve 80 tiny orchid cutouts.  But the designer part of my brain always wins, and in the end I am very happy with the results. And more importantly, so is Brookes.
