So, I posted Daphne's invitations a while ago. Then we all got sick and I had to reschedule her party for July 7th -- also known as the hottest day we could have possibly had it. Photos to come, but I'm telling you now that the sweaty, hot mess in the photos is me. Prepping the space at the farm for the party proved to be more work than I anticipated and I didn't exactly wear the most sweat-proof type of outfit. Lesson learned. Let's move on and talk about my dear friend, Allison.
Allison is getting married! And not only do I get to stand up there with her on September 2nd, I also had the privilege of designing invitations for her wedding, shower, and bachelorette party. I couldn't have been any more excited to do it all. And I can't wait to share them here. First up, the invite.
After discussing the color palette, any themes and/or preferences she had in mind, I got to work. I sent her a few different options -- all using deep purple and warm yellow hues. Allison gets five stars for participation. It was her suggestion to use the wheat graphic (drawn in Illustrator) in place of the dandelion I had there. A little background on her suggestion:
- Allison and her fiancé (Jake), have recently relocated to Colorado.
I love when there is a real purpose in design. It makes it that much more meaningful. And to top it all off, Allison added her own touch -- the wheat stamping on the back of the envelope. Way to go, Al!
So here's the whole shabang. Location and website information has been removed to prevent any party crashers (you know who you are) from...crashing.
