Latiffe and Chris had a gorgeous destination wedding in Guadalajara, Mexico and they wanted their invitations to reflect that in style. We discussed using papel picado graphics, but in the end decided on using Talavera tile as the graphic inspiration. I adore how everything turned out!
But first, here's the save-the-date we created for them. They wanted a simple silhouette of Mexico with an indication on where the wedding would take place.
Talavera style pottery comes from Puebla, Mexico (where Latiffe's family is from) and is known for bright colors, geometric designs and for having a white base glaze. It was a wonderful inspiration for this invitation and really fun looking at a variety of beautiful pieces for inspiration.
For their RSVP card, we did a very simple, two-sided postcard that directed guests to RSVP on the couple's wedding website. I've changed the URL and their address to protect privacy.
Latiffe asked me to make the map to look a little like a vintage treasure map and I was happy to oblige.
At the wedding reception, they had a taco stand making street tacos for their guests, and I created a menu that sat at each place setting. Photo Cred: Rocio Luna Weddings
We also created a large seating chart that let guests know where to sit. We weren't able to get a photo of it at the wedding, but this is a mockup of what it looked like:
The wedding looked absolutely gorgeous and it's one I wish I could have attended in person! Congratulations guys!!
