A DETAILED LOOK

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-fiancé-now-husband and the last 10 years we spent building our lives together. A basic invite 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.....(TMI)?

 

This is the stuff I love most. Hope you find some inspiration here for your own story.
