Erin & Matt's Wedding

I had the pleasure of helping my good friend Erin with some of her wedding stationery. She has fabulous taste and it was a wonderful collaboration all around.

We started off with the save the date. She came up with the concept and I designed it. The pictures were taken by Erin and were representative of each stage in their relationship. They met at the beach, the piano bar is one of their favorite date night spots, the heart cloud is a picture from a vacation in Paris and the bench is in the park where Matt proposed. Erin had them printed and on semi glossy paper and cut at Staples and we rounded the edges with a paper punch.

A few months later I did Erin's wedding invitation calligraphy. She wrote a cute post about it here.

We threw the bride-to-be a bridal shower and I created the favors: cute bud vases with a personalized tag.

Her cousin, Robbie, designed the beautiful wedding invitations and we carried the theme throughout.

I created the goodie bags for the wedding favors by designing a sticker from the monogram Robbie designed on the invitation. They were printed on adhesive paper and punched out with a round 2 inch hole punch. We stuck them onto white paper bags and trimmed the top off with pinking shears to give it a finished edge.

Finally I designed the wedding program for the hotel bags. The cover was based off of the invitation and we used the same fonts. We printed them double sided on 8 1/2 by 11 and folded them in half vertically.

Having a consistent theme through colors, fonts and designs ties all the special elements of a wedding together. It is an easy way to make your wedding memorable and distinctive.

Congratulations Erin and Matt... it was a beautiful wedding!
