When my sister Diane got engaged, I was so excited for her. She is one of those people that always puts others first and when it was finally her time to marry Mr. Right, I knew that she had found the person who would put her first and be such a good friend, partner and soul mate. Needless to say, I was honored when they approached me to design their Wedding Invitations.
Diane and Shawn wanted to celebrate their vows at the beautiful Victorian in Santa Monica, California. This historic house next to the beach couldn’t have been a more breathtaking background for the ceremony and reception. Her colors were Tiffany blue and white, and the bridesmaids 1950’s style dresses perfectly complimented Diane’s vintage inspired wedding dress and hairstyle.
When it came to designing the wedding stationery, they knew they wanted to incorporate owls, but they gave me artistic freedom to create a design that matched their personalities and the theme of the ceremony. I love the whimsical feel to this set, which included the invitation, response card, matching envelope, program and table cards. I think it brought out their fun, carefree personalities while maintaining a traditional elegance. This will always be one of my favorite designs as it was close to my heart.
