Peacock inspired wedding

Alex and I never met but she had such vision (and a great wedding planner) that we did all of our correspondence over email. Her colors were eggplant purple and green with a peacock theme. Designing the save the dates, I created a plume design that evokes the feeling of a peacock without being in your face about it. I used typography to make the save the dates even more fun to set the tone of the wedding. The fonts also brought in a Texas vibe. Since Alex and Matt don't live in Texas, the wedding was truly a destination wedding.

The pocketfold invitations incorporated a belly band with the same plume design. Two cards were staggered in the pocket. The hotel block card stated "Come for the day, stay for the weekend" and the response postcard stated "We look forward to celebrating with you". 

For the reception, I designed simple square program panels. The escort tent cards were placed in shabby chic window shutters. Guests found their table number on a custom wine label I created. Finally, to add more fun to the wedding photo shoot, I created prop signs for the bride and groom to hold. The signs said "I'm with Her" and "I'm with Him" and the back said "Thank You".
