Our Wedding Invitations

Wedding planning was such a crazy experience for me and Stephen.  Even though we were excited, we often felt completely overwhelmed with planning and budgeting.  We both knew our wedding would be DIY with lots of personal touches, that meant I would handle all the invitations!  Thankfully, illustrating and designing the invitations for our wedding was the easiest part of the whole process!  Unlike other decisions I knew exactly what I wanted the invitations to look like and I felt that I captured our venues and personalities to a T.   I am very proud with how they came out!

I drew inspiration for my Save the Dates and Invitation Suite from my wedding dress and Clouet Gardens (the community garden we chose for our venue!)  I also included our dog, Poppy, on the Save the Dates... she couldn't attend the wedding so we had to think of a special way to include her.
