We had the pleasure to work on all aspects of Kelli and Dan’s wedding stationery from Save the Date, to invitation, to on-the-day pieces like their menus. Their theme is simply a Mexican wedding that is colorful, playful, and high spirited – they have been more than generous with their trust in us to allow their stationery designs to evolve with their thinking at each step from digital flat design, to laser cut, to a loose, playful painterly style. Regardless of the medium used, we are happy to have reflected their wedding plans at each installment.

We were so excited to be asked to work on Kelli and Dan's on-the-day stationery; table numbers, escort cards and menus. Because we had worked with them before the trust we had formed allowed us the freedom to explore and go for it aesthetically. These were just about having fun and creating a loose, care free, exuberant feel for their wedding day. We designed hand-painted, vibrant flowers and leaves. We believe the fun that we had in the process is transparent in the printed pieces.
