as someone who's always been obsessed with design and all things paper, i was really excited about designing the invitation suite for our wedding. invites are a visual sneak peek at the look and tone of the wedding. i wanted our invites to represent our "modern organic" theme and get our guests excited about the big day!
i scoured the nets for inspiration, and quickly found it in the expressive and charming work of linda & harriet. her chevron invites blew me away and i knew it would be a perfect graphical element not only for our invites but throughout the look of our wedding.
equally enamored by the floral "stamps" throughout much of her work - i was determined to use a succulent "stamp" on our invites. a designer friend helped assemble the design and created the succulent stamp, transportation icons, and a direction map.
to mix things up a bit i added a modern gray graphic to the back of the main invite tied them all up in natural twine and packed them in kraft paper envelopes emblazoned with the same succulent stamp.
with all the pressure I put on these things, i really think they embody the perfect expression of "modern organic".
