Wedding at Mandola Estate Winery

From the wedding invitations to the reception collateral, the design was kept simple and modern. The invitation was letterpress printed on Crane's 100% Cotton Lettra cover stock in green and brown inks with the couple's names as the focus. The font treatment of their names became their logo for all of the design pieces. Because the wedding was at an Italian winery, Italian words were used throughout the reception collateral. We created the escort tent cards (which were displayed on a ribbon bulletin board) and placecards and table cards (both propped up on wine corks). We love the natural feel of this wedding and we're always suckers for a green and chocolate brown combo. Salute!

Elegant Damask Wedding

We had so much fun designing Courtney and Jeff's wedding collateral. Based on her wedding colors of black, white and red and love of damask patterns, we created an oversized save the date card, die-cut into an elegant frame shape. The front held the details of the wedding and the back illustrated a black and white damask pattern and the bride's monogram. The 6" x 9" invitation was letterpress printed in white on extremely thick black linen cardstock (think cardboard weight). The response and reception cards were die-cut to match the shape of the save the dates. We also created weekend itineraries for guests, water bottle labels, koozies, die-cut table cards and escort tent cards. And let's not forget the die-cut invitations that were placed on guests' placesetting at the wedding reception that invited them to a VIP after-party!! This wedding was definitely what we call "ooh la la"!

GoGreenBedding Website

I am so excited to announce that the redesigned is live! The client was receiving tons of hits to her homepage but users left as soon as they saw her homepage. After months of this happening, she came to the conclusion that users saw her old website as unprofessional and cheap-looking. She sells high-quality, high-cost eco-friendly products and her website didn't portray that. I redesigned the entire site to be a bit more high end and my client is thrilled with the results! I also created an advertisement, which is currently running in Austin Monthly Home.

Retro Save the Date Postcards

Cara wanted her save the dates to incorporate her colors of yellow and gray. Yellow is the new popular color to choose for weddings...and we love it! She also was very specific as to what she wanted for the design. She loves the style of the 1950s...everything from the graphics to the fonts.

By using retro elements in our design, we created that feel with her save the date postcards. Nothing is more fun than to create a design that the client was envisioning! Plus to save Cara the back-wrenching task of hand addressing every postcard, the guests' names were pre-printed on the address side of the postcard in a 1950s style font. Now isn't that groovy?!
