High Tech Wedding

I love the colors of this wedding: purple, silver and yellow accents. And when Katrina said that her fiancé 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.

I created a tea-length sized program, letterpress printed in three colors on one side. The foldover thank you notes were also letterpress printed.

Both Katrina and Chris love phone apps (in fact, Chris even read his wedding vows from his iphone)! So what did they do!? They used their favorite apps as their table names, of course. We used the app logos on the escort tent cards and table cards to add a little bit of eclectic and fun imagery. I think this really added to the hip vibe that they wanted. To top things off, they used the bicycle gear design as a gobo light on the dance floor!

As you can tell, this wedding was all high tech! Check out their interview on Fox News at
