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…

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

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….

Thank you Julia & Richard!  It was wonderful working with you!  Hope your Big Day is spectacular!

 

 

 

I’m sure there are those that will debate me on this, but Lafayette is hands down, my favorite of all the Savannah Squares.  I adore the patina on the fountain, the beautiful oaks that surround it, and of course the company it’s nestled between:  The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Hamilton-Turner Inn and the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home.

Happy Wedding Day Lauren & John! It was such a pleasure working with you and thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with one of my favorite squares, Lafayette.  I loved Lauren’s color scheme of Eggplant and Chocolate Brown and it paired nicely with the rustic kraft paper envelopes.

I currently have the pleasure of working with 2 Savannah brides and a Chicago bride!  Sweet Ally finally has me motivated to pull together a Whitefield Square Invitation, and I’m really happy with the direction it’s headed in…
