Save the Date: Christine + Rama

My husband Rama and I are both artists with a special fondness for children’s book illustration, so our wedding theme was vintage + children’s book + and just plain sweet. Our printed materials were inspired by The Little Prince, one of our favorite books. For the save-the-date, Rama drew a portrait of me as a girl and I drew a portrait of him as a boy, and the two versions were sent out to our respective families and friends. The story continues — and the two drawings coming together — with our invitations.

Save the Date: Tricia + Justin

i made these save the dates for my upcoming wedding in berkeley, ca in august. i created the design with illustrator and then laser cut them on 1/16th inch plywood. i hand painted some with watercolors and left some unpainted to emphasize the material itself. i have additional photos i can send, as well as the actual save the dates if you would like to have one. mailing them was tricky because they are somewhat fragile so we sandwiched the between sage-y green museum board and chip board and tied them all together with a ribbon. as far as we’ve heard they all made it to everyone safe and sound!

Modern tea party inspiration

Julianne wrote to me last week after I was having a pretty crappy day, and totally changed it around with her note.  Apparently, she’s been trying to come up with a theme for a party she’s hosting, and after seeing the Esther Coombs cakestand post, came up with a modern tea party theme!  She put together this inspiration that day and I just had to show it off here, it would make a great bridal shower!  Thanks Julianne!
