Design: Allison & Christopher's Nautical Wedding Invitations
Allison and Christopher's wedding stationery was nautical themed from front to back, start to finish. Their save the date was simple with a classic play off of a knot as part of the copy to keep it light and casual. And lastly, the design was topped off with a simple line drawing of an anchor because some times you can't do a nautical theme without one.
As we moved on to their wedding invitation suite, we classed it up some to play with the importance of the event but ultimately kept it—what I like to call—sophisticated playful. I used swirling waves and a sailboat as the main illustration element which was then used on other pieces including their programs and escort cards.
To complete the suite, the invites were bundled together with a natural string and a monogrammed tag. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to do a triangle as it brought together the sail and flag shapes that were being created on the invite and the RSVP card.
Allison and Christopher were clients that knew exactly what they wanted. It was clear and direct making it easy to create a suite that fit their needs for their big day. I am so thankful they included my designs and art into such a special event in their lives.
