Wedding Invitations : Stephanie & Ronald

Stephanie was referred to me by her cousin Nataly Lemus. Nataly happens to be a very talented Southern California Wedding photographer, whose blog I've been reading for the last couple of years. When Stephanie contacted me and told me she was referred by her cousin, I was complimented and delighted.

I met Stephanie and Ronald at a Starbucks in Pasadena a few months ago. It was the first client meeting that I had that with the bride AND the groom. As they looked over my design samples, they excitedly shared how they met and their plans for their wedding. They lived in Corona, but were hosting their wedding and reception in Pasadena. They were planning a formal, yet festive family-oriented affair. They had a monochromatic color palette in varying shades of purple.

Stephanie sent me these images for inspiration.

I was excited to design their invitations. I was looking forward to the challenge of working with a monochromatic palette. The design process went quickly, but right as we were going to press tragedy struck my family. Like many of my other clients, they graciously allowed me to make arrangements for the completion of their invitations. For this, I am eternally grateful to Stephanie and Ronald.

Here is what I designed for them.



Wedding Invitations : Kanishka & Brian

Time really does fly. It feel as though I was just finishing Kanishka & Brian's Save the Dates.

Suddenly, I'm working on their wedding invitations. I had the same inspiration images and color palette, which I absolutely love. I'm quite fond of the jewel tones she selected. Kanishka also wanted me to continue using the lotus flower motif. The only twist is they wanted a few extra details. So, I added a custom envelope liner and custom bellyband with a diecut opening.

Here's what I created for them.






Wedding Invitations : Ruby & Jereco

Ruby was referred to me by her very busy and very talented wedding coordinator Amanda Auer of In The Now Weddings. I've been a big fan of Amanda's since I planned my own wedding in 2007. (She was the coordinator I wish I had hired.) When I met Ruby and Amanda for a consult, Ruby was very exuberant and had quite a bit to show me. Her primary wedding color is red, ruby red to be exact. She wanted her invitations to reflect the glamorous and glitzy event that she and Amanda had planned. I was anxious to create something that would do her event justice.

Here are the inspiration images she sent me.

Here is what I created for her. I used a Stardream pocketfold and all her inserts printed on a Petallic Beargrass stock.








Wedding Invitations : Rhea & Joe

When Rhea first contacted me in November, I thought to myself "How in the world did a woman in Brooklyn find me?". Not that I was complaining, but I was a little surprised. As it turns out, my client Carmela had been featured as "Knottie Bride of the Week" by the Knot.com. That is how Rhea found me. And I'm glad for it.

Rhea is a women who knew exactly what she wanted. Her wedding colors were Ivory, Purple, and Orange. She had become enamored with the invitations that I created for Jenny & Kenny.

She sent me these inspiration images.

Ultimately, she really wanted Jenny & Kenny's invitations with her color scheme. I thought it would be simple. Wrong! It took me 2 months of intense searching to find the right texture paper in just the right shade of purple. In the end, it was worth the effort.

Here is what I created:
