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.
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!
