Forsyth Park Fountain, Whitefield Square Gazebo and Candler Live Oak themed wedding invitations are finally here!  Thanks to all of the sweet Low Country brides that got me motivated to build on my wedding collection.  It’s been a true pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I can’t wait to see wedding pictures!

A wedding gift for dear friends, Val and Pat, these wedding invitations are tricky little monsters!

layered wedding invitation with custom floral pattern

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll notice that  the pattern is a combination of ink and bleach and acrylic swatches.  We aimed for rich jewel tones and a painterly style, and printed them with archival inks onto velvety fine art paper.

They are delicately held together with a teeny-tiny little brad, with the last page consisting of an RSVP postcard.

Here’s where I left off after an unfortunate run in with my x-acto last night…I’m using this as the perfect excuse to finally throw down on Martha’s blade, and to get out of washing dishes…66 left to assemble.

remember that ink and bleach pattern ?  It’s been haunting my soul…

No bleach here…just acrylic, watercolor, and some manipulation in Photoshop.

Bethesda has to be one of the most beautiful places in Savannah to get married.  The Whitefield Chapel is nestled under giant mossy live oaks, and the entire property is quite close to the water.  It’s no wonder celebrities like Paula Deen and Mandy Moore have decided to say their vows here.  A sweet couple from Alabama commissioned me to do the  sketch for their wedding invitations, and I’m quite thrilled with the outcome.  Their guests will receive an archival quality print that can saved forever by simply putting it in a 5×7 frame.  Vellum inserts on the interior are attached with the daintiest of brads…(no ribbons and bows for this bride!)  Of course I also drew up some custom response cards to coordinate.

Really pleased with the way these turned out.  Tea length, with inner and outer envelopes in ecru.  Opted for  script vs. print. (to which I was thrilled)   Printed with archival inks onto fine art paper, and then delicately cut down with sharp x-acto.  All the best to the lucky couple and (if you’re reading this) many thanks for a fabulous project!

I’m really excited to bring these to life.  A variation of this print, I love that they are going for a tea length invitation.  I’m also super stoked to be doing custom wedding invites for not one but two brides right now!  Gives me a chance to relive all the fun I had planning and designing our own special day…(without a fraction of the stress!)    I can print with archival inks on a variety of luxurious papers, and I thrive on custom work…So keep em’ coming people!

That’s right…the Rockstar Red series is all gone!  Things seem to be picking up this first week in Spring…so if you’ve been eyeing the Foodie Prints, better pay a visit to The Produce Stand quick!

Not much else going on around the studio…a little of this…and a little of that.   I have, however, decided to design my own wedding invitations.  I’m not sure how smart this idea is.  I’m plenty capable of designing invites…but my indecisive nature may just work against me here.   When to stop my inner control freak?

Anyhoo…wishing you all a lovely first weekend in Spring!  xo
