Shades of Green Botanical Suite | Calligraphy

Botanical wedding invitation suite | A Fabulous Fete

A while back I worked together with Harmony Creative Studio to create a suite that tied in with their black tie botanical theme. And, if you know me, I'm a sucker for anything green, viney, leafy, flowery... you get the idea. Rather than going with the typical botanical border, I decided to give this vine covered crest a try. And guess what, I found that crests are really fun to work with. They take a lot of focus, sometimes some actual measuring (and rulers, hate), and you kind of get lost while you are creating. Or at least I did. It's on the agenda to create more of them. I love that they can be used across all of your wedding stationery over all of the different occasions to tie it all together.

I also played around a bit with the watercolor lettering here too. Instead of the solid color I am used to working in, I went for a mixed effect with a few different shades. It was a fun playful touch on an otherwise formal event and style. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the shoot!

I also created these custom drink menus, one for the bride and one for the groom. This stain is one of my all time faves, and I CANNOT remember what it was called. So, also on the agenda? A stain menu slash an assistant who enjoys creating menus and guides to help me stay organized;)
