New Design: Jill & Riley's Vineyard Wedding

I met Jill and Riley on a chilly Chicago afternoon and was instantly warmed by their sincere and friendly personalities. Within seconds of meeting them, I knew they were going to be a very fun couple to work with. They are getting married at a beautiful Sonoma Vineyard in August, and wanted their invitations to reflect the natural elements of the destination and their casual, fun-loving personalities. They both have a love for the outdoors – biking in particular – and are getting married in wine country, so it seemed fitting that we outfit their whole stationery suite with a tandem bicycle filled with wine. I ended up illustrating the bike with pen and ink to give it a hand-made, natural vibe. Jill and Riley's thermography wedding invitation suite, thank you notes and rehearsal invites turned out beautifully.

Jill and I have a lot more up our sleeve for the actual wedding, plus Riley's mom is throwing a big Ohio shin-dig for all the guests that can't travel to the actual ceremony. I will have to show you those at a later date, but I can hardly wait...

The invitation with the custom liner and wrap around label. The liner really helped pull everything together into a cohesive bunch.

I love the labels. They set the mood for the entire package inside. 

Thermography is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

Close up of the bicycle. We struggled to find an antique illustration that we liked so drawing it was the best option. Jill plans to use the bike on all sorts of goodies. 

The rehearsal dinner invite continued to play off of the same theme. It is simple but the big orange heart gives a fun pop of color. The natural envelopes help set it apart from everything else.

Hope you enjoy! Have a fabulous weekend.
