New Design: Elena & Tom's Chicago Wedding


Last Friday, our good friends Elena and Tom tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the Chicago Cultural Center, one of my favorite architectural spots in the Windy City. I was thrilled to be a part of such an incredible ceremony and event. It was very obvious that the new Mr. and Mrs. Gorman are full of love for each other and are surrounded by amazing friends and family.

About eight months ago, Tom approached me about designing their wedding stationery. He has a passion for letterpress and typography, and wanted the design to express that passion through their wedding invitations. We mixed traditional with edgy to create their look in both color and font to mimic the couples energetic and contemporary style. Their monogram is a playful and modern twist on the original logo of the Chicago Public Library, which was located in the Cultural Center until 1991. We had a lot of fun designing and tweaking the entire suite which included the save the date (posted here), invitation, reply card, outer envelope with custom liner, mailing label, programs, save the dates and day-of signage.

Elena and Tom's monogram is loosely based off of the original Chicago Public Library logo.
