I remember when we first met with Julianne and Phil. The most striking image of everything shared about the wedding was Jewel’s yellow shoes. She wasn’t yet sure if they were for the ceremony, the engagement pictures, or maybe the post-wedding dash to the car – all she knew was that they had a place in the wedding and that she loved them.

Some of you may remember their save the dates highlighted in our blog post, The New Full-Color.

The couple wanted their printed materials to be a balance of playful & classic. Early on we landed on a truly vintage postcard for their save the dates & when it came time for the invitations months later – Julianne’s love affair with her shoes was still stuck in my mind. The meeting lasted less then 5 minutes. I quickly sketched a scene of the couple standing side by side with a bright popping yellow, highlighting Jewel’s shoes. Not your typical wedding invitation scene, but typical isn’t what the couple wanted.

I am especially in love with the tri-fold wrap. 110# Pearl White Lettra Duplexed to French Paper Lemon Drop, we experimented with a type of die cut that allowed the wrap to fold and expose the yellow paper underneath creating a tri-colored edge. A subtle detail that the most aesthetically sensitive recipients will surely appreciate. Ad a wax seal and the wrap is complete.

A collaboration with our friend & officemate, the talented Brian Boesch of Itchy Illustration, Julianne & Phil’s save the date and wedding suite are amongst our favorites that we’ve designed and printed this year.
