On Memorial Day weekend my boyfriend’s sister and her fiancé officially tied the knot in a beautiful and intimate ceremony in Rockport, Massachusetts. I was lucky enough for them to ask me to design their wedding invitations, RSVP cards and programs for the big day, and we worked together to ensure I created something they both loved. While out shopping with the bride-to-be, Katie, for shoes one day, she showed me the colors of her bridesmaids dresses. It was a discontinued color — Capri, from David’s Bridal — but I was able to get a screen shot of it from their site before they updated it and used it as the base color of all three items I designed to have a consistent theme tie them all together.
The very top image is the official wedding invitation, which has edges that bleed but were cropped so there was a crisp white border surrounding the main color block, but with just a bit of the flowers spilling over. Directly above is the RSVP card, which has many of the same consistent elements. Since Katie and Travis have a good sense of humor, I was able to make the RSVP card a bit fun and not as stiff as traditional wedding ceremonies may call for.
Below are some select photographs and the program of the official day:
