invitation inspiration

if i were to choose the one thing about my business that i love the most, it is the opportunity to take the ideas a couple has about their event and translate them into an invitation suite that conveys the spirit of the event using just some paper, ink and a lot of imagination.

usually, i suggest to my clients that they try to come up with an inspiration board so we can figure out the exact mood that they want their suite to convey.

so, for fun, i pulled some pictures together from the amazing Jose Villa Photography* in southern, california to use as inspiration for an invitation suite.




i truly love the casual and elegant feel these pictures evoke and i am looking forward to creating a suite that will combine the rustic elements of the natural setting with an elegant and refined tone.

once i figure out a couple of design ideas i will post them here and allow you all to choose which one goes into production.

who's in with me?

exactly the kind of wedding i want! and all the invites are so uber-elegant i don't want people "disappointed" when they arrive -- but i also am incredibly classy. (think hepburn - simple, classy) you have taken on quite the challenge! natural tones?? idk
