A DETAILED LOOK

Invitation Case Study:  Dallas + Josh's Wedding | 1.25.20

Personalized details breathe life into your wedding art. We can tell your story through something as seemingly simple as an invitation - creating a lasting memory that is uniquely symbolic and custom to the two of you.

 

This is a case study of my own save the date and wedding invitation suite. I went nuts (in the best way) branding our event - adding special elements wherever possible. I had so much to say visually, to communicate the amount of love I felt for my then-fiance-now-husband and the last 10 years we spent building our lives together. A basic design just wouldn't cut it. After we settled on our venue (The 1909) and date (1.25.20) - I knew our theme:  Artsy-Bohemian-Vintage-Lunar-New-Year-Topanga-Canyon-Hipster. But because that's crazytown to say, we shortened it to Artsy Boho / Lunar New Year.

 

I had so much fun creating our wedding art. This is the stuff I love most - and I'd love create art for your love, too.

♥ Dallas
