Katie and Adam Wedding Invites

Katie and Adam’s wedding is this weekend!  It sounds like it’s going to be so unique and fun- just like Katie.

I met Katie at my friend Sara’s wedding where she was a photographer with the amazing Ruby Sky Photography (really- Sara’s wedding photos were incredible.)  She liked the invitations I did for Sara and we hit it off.   She was a blast to work with, because she’s easygoing and full of great ideas.  Their wedding is going to be a two-day, festival-style affair with music, food, dancing and games, which is just super inspiring in itself.    What’s more, its in the Blue Ridge Mountains at this lovely site with a clearing and a cabin called the Hobson House.

We discussed a lot to options initially, from cute woodland animal scenes to dancing in the woods scenes, but Katie returned from a trip out west inspired by vintage national park and travel posters, so that’s the direction we went.

I made them poster size, to be folded down to fit into the envelopes, so their guests can have a real piece of art to display on their fridges and in their homes and cause them to think of Katie and Adam.  It love the colors of the mountains, and I love the Blue Ridge Mountains in particular, so this project was a real joy to work on.  The front was printed in three colors (pink, green, blue) with halftone dots.

The back of the invite was printed in green, showing trees and a cabin.  I  had a lot of fun with the lettering (like I always do)

In the envelope, the invite folded down around the wording, and looked like this:

The gradients were particularly satisfying.  A close up of the half-tone dots:

So fun!  Congrats to Katie and Adam!  Have fun this weekend and enjoy your honeymoon!
