Natural Succulent Handlettered Wedding Invitations

Some suites come to me with so much ease, this is one of those. Dusty emailed me and described her wedding as natural, organic, with earthy tones and she wanted to include succulents. She also wanted to include some of their gorgeous engagement photos from Annamae Photography and as soon as I saw them my vision became clear. I only had to write out their names a few times to find the style I wanted to move forward with for this suite. We included light grey watercolor marks with a blue undertone to them. We printed white text onto the same grey color to create balance in the suite. Kraft envelopes with watercolor white ink, small succulent illustrations, finished and assembled with some twine, it all came together beautifully. 

Halloween Wedding Inspiration

HAPPY (almost) HALLOWEEN! I know it's not until tomorrow but I wanted to get this out today because I'll be so busy inhaling candy tomorrow that I'll probably forget to share! But if you've been following me on Instagram HERE or HERE , you got a sneak peak of some really adorable wedding decor I got to the opportunity to do! Megan + Kevin recently renewed their vows at The Kelley Farm in Bonney Lake, Washington right before Halloween. So it was only fitting to incorporate some pumpkin themed goods into the mix of decor! These were a lot of fun to paint and they looked so great in the barn setting! CONGRATS again to #eggenpartyof3 and I was honored to get to be a small part of something so SPECIAL! 

& a few INSTAPICS because iPHONE rule, duh.
