Hi! It's been more than six months since I've posted work on my blog. What happened? I had a baby and have been enjoying the life out of her and her big brother. It's been so good to take some time. I'm been quiet working on a few things, and am slowly photographing work that's been in my 'must share' box from the past 18 months.
Since we're currently summer, I'll start with Adrienne and Christian's invitations from August 2017. This couple was amazing to work with... and so patient as we corresponded and collaborated from different time-zones, as the couple was planning their wedding from Germany. They win the ultimate trooper award as their wedding day got rained on, big time by Hurricane Harvey. But, their vendors really pulled through and they ended up pulling off a wedding celebration a day early at Ninfa's on Navigation, where the bride had weekly family dinners growing up. Coincidently, my little family makes our way there about once a week these days. So much love for Ninfas!
Their reception was to be held at Live Oak Friends Meeting, which is known for its James Turrell Skyspace. Houston is luck enough to be home to two Skyspaces... they are a must-see!
The invitation is influenced by the Skyspace shape, and pretty summer colors.. olive, sage and coral. For the invitation itself, we letterpressed the text in sage and olive, and was inserted in a coral folded-piece. Since the groom was German and would be inviting all of his friends and family to Texas for the wedding, we did a fully-bilingual invitation and Save the Date, which added a lot more personality.
Fun reception card! Square to mimic the invite, with gold foil stamped on olive paper. We added a tiny decorative design that had both Tex-Mex and German Folk art vibes.
Invitation interior with Sage and Olive Letterpress on double-thick 100% cotton paper.
Since the couple had guests from all over the world, a web-based RSVP made the most sense. We included a sage-colored piece with English and German on each end, and the website and password in the middle.
Here's a peak of their bilingual Save the Date. Our must-haves were a square card, clean lines and mid-century typography. So thrilled how it all came together, and from what we heard, they had the best time at their wedding despite the insane rains that were to come...
