Simply Sweet, Whimsical Wedding

/ Friday, June 22, 2012 /
After creating Howie and Lili's Save-the-Date, I was anxious to get working on their invitation and remaining stationery. It was a fun challenge to come up with a set that would tastefully compliment their wedding style. Their color scheme was a beautiful tangerine orange and deep teal. They wanted whimsical elements but a look not so rustic, nothing overly ornate or too modern. They also wanted a custom monogram to depict their shared love of photography, but didn't want it to be the central focus of their design. My solution was a simple, subtle design with a mix of script and sophisticated type. All components were held together with the sweet touch of baker's twine and a hangtag of their monogram.  This combination was perfectly fitting for their fun, warm personality and had just enough structure and cleanliness to satisfy their perfectionist side. I especially loved that I was able to derive their monogram from each of their own hand-drawn sketches of a camera style they liked - a great personal touch.  Rounding off the collection are coordinating ceremony programs, the reception seating chart, tented menus, table numbers, and the monogram tags and twine were also used to adorn their adorable succulent favors. I couldn't be happier seeing it all come together on their wedding day. Congratulations Howie and Lili!
