Welcome Joseph – Peonies

The Joseph suite came about a few years ago during a custom design, but never made it into the mail. I loved the look too much to discard, so it’s brought to life in our wedding album. The suite is simple and can express so many things depending on the colors used — a bold artistic affair, or a soft and simple rustic or vintage look.

Here is some pinterest inspiration for this Peony Wedding suite.

Welcome Andrew — a high-elevation wedding suite

My husband and I met at a rock climbing club, so it’s apropos that this suite would be one of my very favorites. With the type of friends we connect to, we’ve attended a few mountainous weddings and they are always the most memorable. There’s a quiet, stillness that can only be felt in this natural setting, and it captures the perfect focus on the couple and their love. Since mountain weddings are often a destination event, the serenity also instantly creates a community-type bond for guests. All of a sudden you are away from the world and your new best friends are the other guests, sharing
the memories of a special event.

I set out to encapsulate the casual fun, natural style of a
mountain wedding in the Andrew suite.

Welcome Marcus – Florals Abound

I realize the last post also welcomed a floral-inspired wedding invitation, but I was finding so many great images on Pinterest for our lovely Marcus that I couldn’t help but continue the theme!

Marcus is very playful, so playful that it could even be a birthday or bar mitzvah invite. I struggled with whether or not this would be a keeper in the new album, but after playing with the colors and imagining ALL the possible variations (Marcus utilizes 6 ink colors!), I feel like this will be great design for many brides. Flowers are a huge part of the wedding day, and if you have a love for floral, this would be a perfect fit!
