Cindy & Scott

Cindy and Scott were planning a beautiful mid-October winery wedding in northern California and wanted to use simple and straightforward designs for their wedding invitations. I was more than happy to oblidge!

First we created a simple save-the-date with a chalkboard background. Cindy had these printed with VistaPrint. The matte finish really showcased the chalkboard texture.

When we got started with the invitation, they wanted to keep the same overall look with a chalkboard background, but incorporate their wedding colors: blue and gray. 

These were printed by FolgerGraphics in Hayward, CA. 

For a response card, Scott had fun creating a Mad Lib for guests to fill out. This was really fun to create for them!

The response card was a simple two-sided postcard. Their address has been changed to protect privacy.

For their wedding day, Cindy's dad (who's a wine maker), bottled his delicious Zinfandel Rosé for guests to toast with and I designed a custom label to go with them. Waterproof labels kept them from wilting when the wine was chilled.

In lieu of a traditional guestbook, Cindy's dad went above and beyond and had a giant wine bottle filled with his delicious Zinfandel wine and engraved with the same label design. He then built a wood mount for the bottle that allowed it to be spun without risk of it rolling off of the table. Guests signed with metallic silver Sharpie markers. This turned out SO cool!! 

The bottling, engraving, and painting was done by Doc's Trophy Shoppe in Napa Valley, CA. They did an amazing job!

Cindy and Scott's wedding was a blast and I really appreciate the invite. Congrats!!

Joanna & Matt

Joanna is one of my oldest friends (as in, I've known her forever) and when she told me she was getting married in Maui, I was SO thrilled for her!! 

For their save-the-date, she and Matt wanted it to be fun so we did a two-sided postcard that asked guests to let them know if they were planning to make the trip out for the wedding. 

The back showcased a few photos that they took on a recent trip to Maui.

And I loved making a custom, fake postmark for them with their wedding date and location.

For the invitations, we went more formal, but kept the same brightly colored floral graphics.

These were printed on linen-textured card stock by Cards and Pockets. The linen card stock really added an extra level of class to the whole invitation.

Details! 

We created a response card that was a two-sided postcard. 

They were so stoked that they found postcard stamps with Aloha Shirts!

A second insert was of a map showing the locations for the ceremony and reception.

Lastly, we created folded place cards for the reception using the same graphics and fonts as the invitations.

These were such an honor to work on and I love how beautiful everything turned out. Congrats
