You’re invited

There are a few things you might not yet know about me. So let’s get to know each other!

1. In less than two months, I’m going to be marrying my very best friend. We’ve been together for almost a decade, so I couldn’t be more excited!

2. I love paper goods! There are few things better than some GORGEOUS stationary.

3. I’m venturing in to the world of graphic design after working in advertising account management for four years. It’s a scary, but fun, adventure!

Ok, that’s certainly not everything about me (more another day!), but those three things have converged into one fun project that I want to share with you all…my wedding invitations!

I thought about working with a designer on this, but I ultimately decided to do it all myself. So I designed, printed, and assembled each invitation. And loved every minute of it.

Here’s some of my inspiration for the design. I knew I wanted the invite to be personal, casual and tell our guests what kind of wedding to expect and, moreover, what kind of couple Dan and I are.

And, drumroll, please…

I illustrated the chairs myself, even using Dan’s own hat and the chair that he used in the proposal. Mix in some other elements that will be in the wedding (polka dots, texture, colors), and we have an invitation suite that I really, really love.

If you want to see a bit more of my process (picking inspiration, our DIY letterpressing and more), check out my weekly post on Engaged & Inspired.

Like what you see? Feel free to message me. I’d love to work with you to design your custom invitations!
