November 16, 2019 – The best day of my life. I’ve missed you. For the past year, I’ve been planning a wedding – my own. I must say I really enjoyed the planning process and part of that process was doing all the graphics for my wedding – I wouldn’t have it any other way. For those that know me, I have a love for astrology. The stars were certainly aligned when my Sagittarius self met my person, who happens to be a Leo. We are both fire signs and very compatible. He also has a love for astrology at an even deeper level. Astrology played a very important role in the design of our Wedding invitation graphic suite. I would love to share it with you….
The Wedding Invitation Suite
Three words to describe the theme of our wedding Modern | Vintage | Romantic and with a touch of Beastie Boy. For those that know my husband – it makes sense. All black and white graphics with gold touches. Since astrology is something that my husband and I are both into we wanted to incorporate our zodiac signs into the invitation and design a unique tarot card with symbols of our own personal relationship.
The Wedding Graphic Journey
The Save the Date was our teaser and hinted at the theme of our wedding. Myself pictured in a dress and stilettos with my husband in a full on Adidas track suit. We love the juxtaposition. The Save the Date tells our story how it all started back in St. Anne’s when he was in 1st grade and I was in Kindergarten.
The Rehearsal dinner invite carried the same theme of Black and White. On the front of the invitation were our zodiac constellations of the Sagittarius archer and the Leo the Lion.
I really loved designing every detail of our Wedding graphic suite. It was so personal and so us! For those that live in the Seattle area, we worked with a local printing press to print our custom invitations – Perfect Press. The quality was amazing and the results were that luxe feel that we desired. For both the Save the Date and Rehearsal Dinner invitation – we had our custom design printed by Artifact Uprising.
