Itch to Get Hitched

Our Wedding came out great!

After months and months of preparations the wedding came our beautifully! The programs, decor, cake, paper airplanes, and the bride and groom of course, were all perfect!

Below you have some photos and details shots from the wedding to see the overall look 🙂 It was fun!

Fan Wedding Programs designed and under construction!

Our wedding program is underway!

It will be a hot summer wedding day and what better way to make a program even more useful than to make it a fan!? People will be using it for that anyway!

I designed the program on one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper that was then folded over a large popsicle stick and adhered with double sided tape. We then tied black ribbon that holds a teal golf pencil that can be used for the crossword puzzle in the back of the program. Lastly the corners were punched with a round corner punch to match the rest of the stationary.

Popsicle sticks (Wooden Craft Sticks): Purchased in store at Michaels. 6″ x 3/4″ x 2mm.
Blue Golf Pencils: Graphite Pen & Pencil Company

Below you have the designed program and pictures of the assembly crew!

I just thought I would post a finished product up close and personal 🙂

Stationary Design & Illustration – Boarding Pass Wedding Invites

Just to show a bit more of our wedding fun here are our finished invites designed and illustrated by Yours Truly, and printed by Poor Richards Press in my hometown, California, USA.

Project: Boarding Pass Wedding Invitation

Event:  Amber & Alvaro Wedding

Theme: Our wedding is a dual theme, peacock and travel. We are a very international couple, American and Spanish living in Turkey so it seemed to fit us 🙂 The invite also had to be bilingual seeing that most of the groom’s family and friends are coming from Madrid and other parts of Spain. What better than a boarding pass invite?!

Specs:

  • 4×9  Pocket invitation in Bronze by Paper Presentation
  • #10 mailing envelope in Olive also by Paper Presentation
  • 2 custom illustrations: Custom Couple illustration on opening panel and custom event map on back of accommodations page
  • 2 double-sided “boarding pass” invite cards including: invite/pattern and accommodations/map place in pocket of invitation
  • All invites sealed with an authentic peacock feather from Fabulous Feathers
  • Custom Wedding Logo with names and date
  • Custom rubber stamps with wedding logo and return address and bronze ink stamping pad from Rubber Stamps
  • Design: All layout, patterns, illustrations, logos, and text placement designed by me 🙂

New wedding pattern

So…I decided for my invites that I needed a pattern as a background element. Using our logo and our combination of themes from before I came up with this repeatable pattern. I have never made a repeatable pattern before  but it was a lot of fun!

Later on, I’m sure I can find more uses for it other than the invite, like napkins and backs of pages…all kinds of hidden places 🙂 Enjoy!
