Wedding Invitations : Nina & Jared

I created Nina & Jared's Save the Dates a few months ago. When it came time to create their invitations, they wanted something with the same color family, but a little more formal. Their inspiration images were the same as their Save the Dates. Although, they did send me these two images.

The design process for these invitations went smoothly. Nina and Jared had a clear idea of what they wanted and charged right through. The hiccups came in the assembly process. My color laser printer decided to die along with my die-cutter. So, the beautiful envelope liners became a real LABOR of love (Emphasis on labor). After working with the little sleep over the course of 3 days, here is the finished product.





In the end, it was worth the effort and I hope that Nina & Jared are pleased with the results.


Birth Announcements: Lior & Wendy

Envelopes with Custom Labels

I waited to post this project a because of few of Lior & Wendy's friends read this blog. I'm hoping the new parents have put these in the mail. (I waited a week to blog them!) I didn't want to ruin the surprise. As I mentioned on my personal blog, I did two photo sessions with little Benjamin in order to get just the right photo for his birth announcement.

These announcements were my baby shower gift for Wendy. I am a big proponent of giving gifts that aren't on the Baby Registry. I figure someone else will buy the Diaper Genie or the Breast Pump or give the gift cards. If it's someone I care about, I prefer giving gifts that are more personal.

Wendy had a few parameters for my design. She did not want the typical "blue is for boys" announcements. She also said they wanted something gender neutral, modern, yet cute. I found these adorable little love birds when I was working on Save the Dates. My client eventually chose a different design, but I had hoped to eventually use them in some other project. Somehow, I thought they were perfect for these announcements. I added a third "baby" bird and the design was complete.

Here's what I created:

Announcement - closed

Announcement - partially open

Announcement- fully open

Congratulations to Lior & Wendy! I'm certain Benjamin is the luckiest kid on the block to have parents as loving as the two of you.

Table Numbers: Jessica & Steve

I really enjoy working on other projects for my wedding clients. Jessica & Steve are no exception. When they asked me to create Table Number to coordinate with their invitations, I was more than happy to oblige them.

Here are their table numbers. I hope they coordinate nicely with their floral arrangements.


Congratulations to Jessica & Steve!


Wedding Invitations : Mychel & Connor

Mychel and Connor are having an intimate wedding at her father's home in the gorgeous Santa Ynez Valley. She sent me this information to describe her wedding.
The Oak Tree: I'm going with an oak tree theme because my venue has beautiful oaks all around and they symbolize continuous growth, strength, and wisdom. Our venue is in an area with many oak trees, so it will be carried out in nature as well.

We are having a "Spring Romance" theme. I'd like the mood to be soft and romantic. People should feel relaxed and happy. I'll try incorporate as many good smelling flowers as I can to really invoke that spring feel. Once dancing starts the theme is simply FUN!

Colors are Eggplant and Sage (green and purple). Accent colors will be ivory and gold.
She also sent me photos of these invitation suites as examples of trees that she liked.

After a few technical difficulties with printing (lots of lessons learned with regards to digital printing and saturated colors), here is what I created for her.
