Wedding | Lauren & Justin’s Wedding Invitation

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Jake and I took Justin and Lauren’s engagement pictures back in July, we had a lot of fun getting to know them and their super cute pup Simba. Soon thereafter Lauren saw Christine and Garrett’s post on Jakes blog and really wanted a custom designed accordion style invitation too. I was super excited because I am really loving the accordion style, it allows for more information to be included and pictures from the engagement shoot!  On one of our trips down south Jake and I met up with them, Jake and Justin caught some waves while Lauren and I talked shop and threw around ideas for the invite. After that we met up for the best shrimp tacos at Snapper Jacks in Ventura…mmm Snapper Jacks.

Anywho. Lauren wanted a floral theme using their sherbet wedding colors and some fall leaves.  I hand painted the flower designs and Church front and hand lettered the cover and section titles. I used scanned in burlap to give a subtle texture in the background since she is having burlap on the tables at the wedding. The custom map which shows the route from the church to the reception was also hand painted and the RSVP card is perforated so it could easily be torn off and sent back as a postcard.  The final touches include their 2 favorite engagement shoot pictures, a lace belly band and kraft paper envelope hand addressed with white ink.

Check back in late November for pictures from their wedding!

    Jake — I am so excited for lauren and justin! their shoot was a lot of fun. The invites are super rad. Proud of you honey!
