July was a great month for the Studio! Stationery projects, brand design clients, and freelance gigs coming in and out the door, as well as features on two of Nashville’s finest wedding blogs. Rick + Tonia’s invitation suite made a Top 10 list on Ashley’s Bride Guide July wrap up, while a lovely feature by WedCandy takes readers into a behind-the-scenes glimpse of my design process. Be sure to catch both posts! Now… on to August!
Just a few short months ago, my friend Rick found his dream girl – and two days ago they tied the knot! It may have been a fast track to “I do” but when you know you know… you know? Although I was not able to travel to their wedding in Greenville this weekend, I did have the distinct pleasure of working with the lovely bride on designing her invitation suite. Tonia shared her ideas of blue mason jars, wildflowers, and charcoal grays for this July event. Wedding ceremony in an old church. Reception on the lawn of a plantation house. She also really wanted their initials carved on a tree. The result? Rustic elegance with southern charm. And pops of mason jar blue. Congratulations, you two. Happy Honeymooning!!
The main card was printed front + back. Guests were first greeted by this oak tree carved with the couple’s initials.
Invitation on the flipside. All wrapped up in twine.
A separate card for rehearsal dinner guests.
Sweet details. And a custom rubber stamp!
The newly minted Mrs. Martin wanted to give her hubby a unique & personalized birthday gift. Since the lovebirds had recently tied the knot – and merged their copious libraries – a custom embosser made for a perfect gift! An elegant “M” design and the words “From the library of Mr. & Mrs. Peter Martin” do just the trick for this his & hers emblem. Happy embossing to the new Mr. & Mrs.!
For more information on custom embossers, message me using the above Say Hello link. I look forward to hearing from you!
When my studio line rang and I heard, “Can you design a rehearsal dinner invitation in the style of a Hatch Show print?” I didn’t miss a beat and said, “Absolutely!” The lovely Karen Kaforey of Signature Events coordinated all the details for her client while I got in touch with my inner-Nashville gal. My love for typography (the design and arrangement of letterforms) combined with the opportunity to communicate a message with that typography really gets my creativity flowing. Combine that with a really great point of inspiration and voilá! The result: a rehearsal dinner invitation evoking the screen printed feel of an old Nashville standby. How very Nashville. How very festive!!
