The Inspiration Behind the Design….
Matt and I knew we didn’t want the typical church wedding, so we decided to get married on a sail boat floating along Casco Bay in Portland, Maine. I went Pinterest crazy and made an entire inspiration board filled with beautiful lime green and raspberry inspiration and one day we realized, that just wasn’t “us.” We wanted something that captured our personalities and our lives together. We wanted something fun, and silly and represented the life we were making together!
The invitation, was completely hand lettered and screen printed in two colors, on heavy weight chipboard, complete with our non-traditional wording. It was our wedding day and we wanted to let guests know they were going to have a good time. I chose to design the RSVP postcards and the custom illustrated map in full color and had them printed digitally. The envelopes and wood tags were beautifully calligraphed by Kristen Henderson.
I also had a ball designing and creating all of the little details that made our wedding totally us! From the hand painted drink menu, to the polaroid guest book signage and the matching portraits for our cake toppers everything was custom crafted. I loved designing and making every little detail coordinate with the invitation suite, and our guests loved the way the entire day came together.
