Congrats to Kate & TJ, married May 7th 2016 at the University Club of San Francisco! I designed their full stationery suite from the save the dates to invites, and finally reception cards. I’m so thrilled that they sent me a few gorgeous photos from their big day to showcase!
After their save the dates were sent out [see below], Kate & TJ wanted to customize my SF city skyline wedding invitation suite. We changed the paper colors and fonts, and moved the skyline to the top of the 5×7 invite card.
We also carried on this design style & paper color combo for their reception stationery; table signs, large format program, and 2-layer escort tent cards!
Congrats to Eilleen & Ron, married on September 20, 2014 at Casa de la Vista on Treasure Island [with the lovely San francisco skyline as their backdrop].
I personalized my invitation suite to showcase the city skyline with bay bridge [as seen from their venue] along with their color theme which was champagne, fuchsia and accents of antique gold. When it was time to create the reception stationery, we easily picked up the design and metallic papers to match.
I love all the wedding details they added to bring together their city / island theme… especially the wedding cake which incorporates both [orchids + skyscrapers].
The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides-and-grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action.
I cannot believe it’s been 2 years since I first illustrated the San Francisco skyline for Lianne’s custom wedding invitation. Recently I’ve been on a roll designing more cityscapes, as well as updating the SF skyline to each clients venue location! I’m excited to finally have a gallery of new invites, showcasing how each can be customized to a specific color theme, shape & size. Let me know your favorite combo! 😉
Thanks to photographer Gustavo Fernández [along with naomi], I’m able to share these wonderful wedding day photos & planning inspiration! I loved customizing my san francisco skyline invitation to complement their venue location (we replaced the bay bridge with the golden gate bridge). They also personalized the metallic paper colors to match their color theme.
OH MY GOSH! I’m Super excited about the monogram on the cupcakes!! 😉
We used Kara’s cupcakes (I’ve always been a huge fan of their cupcakes, so it worked perfectly to have them for our wedding). They will do the custom monogram for $1 per cupcake, and they have those cute six-inch cakes so you can still “cut the cake” but serve your guests cupcakes too. (At one point, our youngest flower girl was storing cupcakes in her flower girl basket) 🙂 ~naomi
I assisted in designing & printing the wedding programs, but Naomi made her own CD wedding favors & escort cards to match!
Wow, I haven’t had any time to post in the past few weeks. Every summer seems to be the same; fall wedding invites due, summer weddings that need their reception stationery + random freelance design projects, and they all hit at once! So why did I plan a move at the end of June? I have no idea… but I did, and I do love the new loft in San Francisco. I quickly set up my home office near the large windows and I’ve been sitting here designing, printing, assembling from day one (no worries, I took a break on the 4th of july)!
Hopefully I’ll be able to post some new invite designs, as soon as I can find my camera-to-computer cable? … 😉
