modern meets romantic

Remember Maya and Bryan (their save the dates and wedding suite)? They got married back in July and I was thrilled to work on their day of materials to complete their wedding stationery.

Their wedding invitations had a very modern feel with the blind debossed abstract motif of fly lines + water. For their day of materials, Maya really wanted to add more color and create a more romantic atmosphere…but still flow with the invitations. I kept a continuity of fonts and colors (pink + grays) from the invitations to the day of materials. And then I added a watercolor sketch of some flowers that softened the pieces.

The programs and menus had the flowers framing the corners while the table numbers and escort cards carried the wavy lines from the invites.

Wow…doesn’t that menu sound so delicious? It definitely made my mouth water while I was designing it.

Rustic + Romantic

Nicole and Jake are getting married! I’ve known Nicole ever since high school. She lived in my neighborhood and her sister and I were classmates. She’s always had the nickname, Baby Brackett to me because she’s so sweet and adorable. It’s hard to imagine that the girl I grew up with and was bus buddies with is now getting married! I’m so excited for their fall wedding–they are getting married the same weekend that my husband and I exchanged our vows just 2 years ago.

Nicole and Jake are holding a small intimate gathering for family and close friends. There is a willow tree at their venue and she loved the idea or incorporating that into the save the date and wedding suite. So I drew a willow tree for her and ‘carved’ their initials into the card to emphasize their rustic + romantic wedding theme.

And for the return address, I designed a custom rubber stamp for her and Jake to use now, for the wedding invitations, and for whatever other mail they need to send! To stamp on the dark chocolate envelopes, we just used a white ink pad–charming right?

Can’t wait to start on your wedding suite, Baby Brackett…and I think it’s time to stop calling you that…
