Designing for this couple has been a delightful experience. Julie is a documentary film maker for the Discovery Channel and whether traveling to the Sahara desert to ride camels or to Holland to play with chimpanzees, she has always been so easy to communicate with and open to design ideas. The couple is tying the knot in Washington, DC during the first Cherry Blossom weekend in March. Can I say perfect backdrop for a wedding??
Julie wanted an invitation that not only expressed her personal style but that also reflected their French and Italian backgrounds. We used a mix of French inspired typography and graphics to show tribute to their past and a vintage postcard of the Washington Monument surrounded by cherry blossom trees to reflect the couple present day.
I simply adore this invitation…not only because it is unique and pretty, pretty, pretty, but because it is so personal and created with meaning. Everything from the hand drawn map to the packaging just came together so perfectly. LOVE.
