Gina & Eric's Invitations

About 2 years ago, I designed invitations for Kelli and Garrett, another California couple. They were referred by the lovely Eileen who has been a huge supporter and sent plenty of business my way (thanks, Eileen!!!) Kelli has also been singing my praises since her own wedding, and I was so excited to hear from her friend Gina who is getting married this summer in Cabo San Lucas. Gina and her fiancé Eric wanted really simple invitations with bright colors and a subtle beach theme. They created their own Save the Dates and used a graphic of a palm tree, so I thought it would be nice to go in that direction. Below is the final result! They were printed digitally on the same recycled stock as Erica & Nick's invitations.

Alexis & Ed's Invitations

Back in November I designed Save the Dates for Alexis & Ed, a couple living in California. I was thrilled when they asked me to design their invites! I knew Alexis would want something elegant and traditional with a modern twist. These were printed offset on a beautiful, thick linen stock with two different blue inks. I love the linen paper (which has been a popular choice among clients lately)!

Erica & Nick's Invitation

I gave a sneak preview of this invitation and never showed the final product! I only have samples of the invitation but the inserts have a similar feel using some of the leaves along the side. Erica & Nick really want to be as Earth-friendly as possible for all aspects of their wedding, so we carefully chose a nice recycled stock called Environment Tortilla. The small flecks (which can't be seen much in these photos) really added to the design and I love the way it came out. These were printed digitally, which is also another eco-friendly way to go. Digital printing lays down toner as opposed to ink (some inks are really harmful to the environment). I'm really happy with the outcome and I know the bride and groom are, too! Their guests should be receiving these shortly.
