2011 has definitely been the year of the mason jar! They’ve been all over the wedding scene, and to be honest…I can’t get enough of them. Today’s featured invitation comes from Tina from WeddingInviteLove’s Tabibi Press. Love, love, love!
I was super thrilled when Lauren contacted me to design her wedding invitation and paper goods. She’s a small business creative and nontraditional…like me. I knew we’d hit it off after our initial consultation. Lauren and John married at Stevenson Ridge in Fredericksburg, VA at a gorgeous bed and breakfast with an amazing view overlooking a pond.
Lauren came to me with a concept in mind. She wanted her reception to be adorned with fresh flowers, mason jars and candles. She loved the idea of having an outdoor ceremony in early Fall. Sunset. Fireflies. Colorful foliage. Can you picture it?
I immediately tossed around a few ideas and sketches. I illustrated the firefly but it was missing something…it was missing a glow. I used the feather and outer glow effect in Photoshop to create the “glow.”
I incorporate the dotted line to create movement and give it a whimsical tone. The design really set off the theme “We are glowing about our big day.”
The final invitation design was incorporated into other paper goods and stationery including the ceremony program, thank you cards, gift tags, escort cards, a signature drink card for the bar and a poster design.
Thank you, Tina for sharing Lauren and John’s stationery! I love how you carried the theme flawlessly throughout all the paper goods. You did a wonderful job, the couple had to be thrilled with your work.
