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. 

REAL WEDDING: Karlie + Alec

Brace yourselves for some seriously gorgeous images, two beautiful humans, and a wedding that looked ten times perfect. Karlie and Alec, you two rule. Karlie is a Seattle blogger based in the PNW and if you haven't checked out her blog, do so HERE, she's seriously adorable. Karlie reached out to me during this time last year and we actually sent out some Galentines Day cards to her ladies. Then we did some envelopes for her invitations. But our biggest project was definitely her day of goods. She managed so find me some dreamy wood (in my world, we're talking smooth, finished, thick and nice cuts of wood!) She dropped these off at my house for me and I painted and lettered them for her. This was a new color of wood for me and I instantly fell in love with its lightness!
