I love love love when couples give me enough time play around with their invites.  Thank you Mara & Brett!  We added a deep purple backing board to the invite and coordinating envelopes.  They have just the right amount of shimmer to give their guests an idea of what’s ahead.  I can’t wait to see how the rest of this event comes together!

I love it when a couple has a vision and enough lead time for me to create something custom.   Julia and Richard are getting married at the gorgeous Driehaus Museum in Chicago.  They wanted to incorporate a tree on their invitations and an overall Art Deco feel.  The first place I look for inspiration is the wedding venue itself.  Wedding invitations are the first impression your guests get of your Big Day, so if you can tie in the venue / setting in the little details, it makes for a nice added touch.  The Driehaus has an incredible domed stained glass window with trees on it.

From there I created some abstracted versions…one a little “leafier” than the other…

Abstract Tree Drawing

Julia & Richard really wanted a folded invitation, which allowed for the tree to be center stage!

Driehaus Museum Inspired Wedding Invitations

LOVE their wedding colors and how they add to the overall stained glass feel of the tree.

Here’s a look at the full suite….
