A Bicyclist's Dream

I love the colors of this wedding: purple, silver and yellow accents. And when Katrina said that her fiancĂ© is an avid bicyclist (and photographer), I knew this was going to be a fun and whimsical design. What came to mind? Gears, of course!

The square save the dates were digitally printed on pearlescent textured paper, backed with silver metallic cardstock. A design of gears set off the bicycle/photographer tone.

The pocketfold invitations were letterpress printed...swoon! We chose a 100% cotton paper for the invitation and enclosure cards and a beautiful yellow paper backing for the invitation and monogram seal. These were all set off with the silver metallic pocketfold.

To make the invitations a little different from the save the dates, I created an outline of gears (instead of filling the gears in with color). By doing so, the indention of the letterpress really was illustrated. The custom monogram I created used their first initials and a close-up of one of the gears. Katrina even used the monogram on her postage stamps (you can purchase custom postage at http://www.zazzle.com/).

Save the date design:
