My wedding stationary

This post is long overdue, SO much has happened, and it has been a pain to keep track of everything. Yet, finally here it’s here.

My weddings (yes plural… because we had a small ceremony in New Orleans & a big religious wedding in Perú) were a design challenge for me. I tried looking at them like any other job, but deep inside I knew it wasn’t. The pressure was on, and I wanted to the best job I could; so I gathered a LOT of inspiration. I nailed down the art direction to having a wedding with lots of greenery and kind of a dark/edgy mood. I was super inspired by my engagement photoshoot at the Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City. Our friend Brittney Sidwell did a fantastic job, so I decided to bring a little bit of that feel to both ceremonies. For the civil wedding, I DIY’d our invites. Printed a nice greenery image that I glued to the back and used transparent envelopes with gold wax seals that I bought at Hobby Lobby. There were only a few invites to craft so it wasn’t a big deal. I enjoyed doing them with Evan. (Even though he didn’t too much.) The Save the Dates & the wedding invites for the Perú ceremony I printed with Navitor, an amazing wholesale online printer; I totally recommend doing business with them if you have a lot of printing needs. They are very affordable and their quality is amazing. I knew that for that invite I wanted to have something more artistic and painterly so I found these greenery pack leaves by Graphic Box in Creative Market and created a few composition for my set. I thought they turned out fantastic. I used black envelopes with a foil trim I ordered on Amazon; and man… they were the bomb! Super luxurious and elegant. (Find here) I also did some calligraphy for the save the dates & envelope addressing just to add a touch of personality. I was very happy with how these turned out; and of course the wedding itself was a huge success. After my own wedding, I now have a better understanding of how important these pieces are for brides, and it really helped my perspective on wedding stationary. I hope I get to do a lot more of these in the near future.

Happily ever after!

Not long ago, my sweet friends got married in gorgeous Louisiana. I had the honor to be part of their wedding and offered to help out with invites' addressing and some cute lettering signs. Of course, the wedding was a success and I didn't get to take pictures of anything :( Luckily their amazing photographer (Buie) got awesome shots of all of them! HOORAY! So now I get to share them with you! Had so much fun making these!! - Thank you Kelcie & Bear for letting me show you my love and allowing me to do these for you. So happy for you two!

A couple of years ago I reached Festinare, an amazing company, so caring about details and full of connections to make your wedding unique and especial. Since I met them I have seen a genuine willingness to help and as soon as I had the chance I offered to get involved helping the "cause" for bridal happiness. :) I started working with Festinare as a brand, ended up re updating their logo and now I work with them and other clients to improve graphics for events and weddings. It has been an exciting road, and I cannot wait to see where it takes us. I enjoy doing it and working with a passionate bunch of people. Today Festinare has more than FIVE thousand likes on Facebook, and they keep growing and growing. This is the first wedding set of many yet to come, and I can't be more proud of the results. Thank you to Eliana and Victor for the trust, and to Andrea for the support and hard work. If you want to see the updated look of Festinare check it out here! > Festinare
