Entries in wedding (25)
The following is an invitation set that I recently created for Carrie and Adam, a lovely Brooklyn-based couple who are getting married in Michigan this Fall. The set was inspired by their rustic wedding location, colors (hues of aqua, red, orange, and yellow), and various folk art...
Custom thank you cards for Ashley & Grant made to match their invitation set. The couple is in town visiting family so it was lovely to finally meet Ashley this morning when she came to the studio to pick these up.
I wouldn't normally just repost wedding pictures but I think this wedding that Emily posted over at Once Wed is so amazing! See lots more, including their engagement shots, here. I love every aspect of it and want to post every single picture because it's so cute and creative. Nathan and I thought about doing a carnival theme for our own wedding but I'm so glad we didn't because it would never have been this good. enjoy!
I posted the preview of this save the date postcard a little while ago and have been meaning to photograph it but the craziness of the studio move and prepping to go to Renegade has left me with no spare time. I still wanted to share it though and actually think that the digital file shows the detail and texture better than a photo would anyway.
The inspiration came from the couple's wedding location (a national park in Ohio) as well as their love of their cats (so cute!). I'm looking forward to working on their invitation set as well.
Off to a late night of printing and work for me... Tomorrow I'll be posting a little Renegade preview before I head off to NY (let's cross our fingers all of my stuff fits in 2 suitcases!).
one more post.. I've been meaning to show these pictures for a while even though many of you may have seen them already on Style Me Pretty. I created a wedding certificate poster for the beautiful Lisa & Derren who got married on the coast of California a few weeks ago. The poster was screen printed with 3 colors on French Paper and the couple drew in the lines for each guest to sign as their guest book. Their whole wedding was so cute and I'm so glad to have been a part of it! Check out more pictures here.
the original piece:
Pictures of Carmella & Grégoire's cut paper illustrated invitation set. See another picture and a little description of their wedding here.
I loved working on this invitation for Carly & Daniel. The inspiration for the invitation allowed for such a unique illustration & type treatment.. it came from both their wedding location (the roof of the Gramercy Park Hotel in NYC) and Carly's collection & love of vintage astronomy maps. I love that it's a bit darker than some of the invitations that I've done lately and it has this sort of classy 'new york' feel.
I also included the comp sketch and a photo of the final illustration being painted.. to see a bit of my process and because the final version ended up being almost exactly what I had sketched out.
I went to a friend's wedding a few weeks ago and purchased a gift off their registry from Crate & Barrel. I love those boxes that they package your gift in but they're just not that festive and the handle makes it a little awkward to wrap. So, I decided to save on paper and get out my sharpie in an attempt to decorate the box itself. I love how it turned out! It was so easy and quick (even if you can't draw you could trace simple flowers and color them in.. the sharpie is good for bold, simple designs). I took this picture as I was running out the door so it doesn't show all of the sides but I just started at some of the letters and drew the flowers coming out from them and wrapping around the sides of the box.
I'm working on so many wedding projects right now that I thought I'd post once in a while on some budget wedding tips (from my own wedding and those I've come across). You know, for the tough times and all. I know that might seem boring for those of you who are not getting married but most things can be applied to any event or different craft projects. Maybe it'll end up being more general. who knows..
