In honor of this great day in Oregon, I wanted to share our dear friends wedding invitations from a few summers ago. When the grooms told me the plan to incorporate inspiration from their favorite movie, Amélie, into their wedding, a lovely image popped into my head– the garden gnome!! The invitation was an accordion fold complete with a gnome silhouette and their amazing engagement photos (taken by Brandon Witzel), and closed between two wood engraved coasters (how fun when the invitation can be used by guests?!) The invitation set, bound in blue satin ribbon, sat upon a bed of wood excelsior, and was enclosed and shipped in a square box.
Not only did I have the great honor of designing their wedding invitations, but was also a participant in the ceremony.
It was a gorgeous August day under beautiful trees in a secluded hazelnut orchard in Aurora, Oregon. The ceremony was so well-written, meaningful, and full of love. This lovely, fun bunch of people below were so happy to participate in the wedding of two incredible people! Thanks W+M for inviting John and I play such an important role in your amazing wedding.
A few months ago, Mandi from Champagne Wedding Coordination asked if I would contribute to the table design they were putting together for the next issue of Portland Bride & Groom magazine. The theme was "Upcycled Brew" and we immediately agreed on what I would contribute– wood goods engraved on a beautiful dark brown walnut wood! I was so happy with the results and think they photographed so nicely with the bright colors going on in the rest of the tablescape. Here's just a couple quick shots of the spread!
Last summer I had the pleasure of working with Lacey and DJ on their Save the Dates, wedding invitations, and day-of paper goods. Lacey and I knew each other from grade school, but were a few years apart and didn't know each other that well. I had such a good time getting to know her (and DJ) better through this process! They had such great ideas and a perfect vision what they wanted for their paper items, but still left a ton of room for creativity. in the end we were all really happy with the outcome! Below are a few photos of their suite (thanks to Paul Rich Studio!) and one of the beautiful couple from FS Photography. Check out this blog post to see more!
