pretty writing meets HOLY MATRIMONY: Melody & Matt

2014, the year of weddings.
I declared that here, here, and here.

This year started off with an email from Melody & Matt,
(no joke, timestamp: January 1!!)

re: their wedding stationary

thus began a very quick month of back and forth emails,
drafts, printer quotes, prints printed, and so on.
it was SUCH a fun, creative team effort.


so y'all...

this here is my very first wedding stationary "set"!

a little snippet of Melody's Pinterest board:

peach + mint + gold
very pretty and chic.

designs began with brush lettering/calligraphy

here's a little mood board with all the finished elements:
1. Brush calligraphy + a little bit of type: Neutra Text
(the 'Sawasaki' last name is so fun to write)
2. Watercolor washes: so pretty, chic, light and airy
3. Hand drawn lace as a special design addition
4. and the illustrated golden chicken for the entree selection

with all that, you get some of this digitally mocked-up goodness:

And with some gold Baker's Twine and a little tag,
thee finished product:

in addition to the invitations,
Melody had asked me to letter up the guest place cards and table numbers

the amazing venue, ahhh:

for those table cards, gold was definitely the way to go..
that, with some opaque white. um, BUENO!

and what they looked like, day of:

aren't professional photos wayyyy better than my old iphone snaps? haha.
an excuse to why this post took forever.

anyway, more to come!
Lord willing.


Matt & Melody,

love your style, organization, and love your love.
