Sometimes life is just so fun and exciting in the "real" world that posting drops
Enter the save the date cards I designed for my sister-in-law and her fiance Raul. Their engagement photos were done by the immensely creative Korie Lynn. How perfect is the swan? I love her work and can't wait to find an excuse for my own shoot.
Raul is a talented musician and producer and one of Amanda's many gifts is her beautiful voice. I know they'll always be making music together, so to me the shot with the guitar is so "them."
I had so much fun working with my BFF/SIL to come up with the design for these cards. She loves how they turned out; she thinks they look famous. Aren't they just a gorgeous couple? I'm already jealous of how striking their children are going to be.
The cards are 5x7s ordered through Overnight Prints in matte finish. I ordered the sparkly/glimmer (think classy vampire) A7 envelopes from Paper-Papers and am really pleased with their quality. They are pewter-- just the right non-silver tone that Amanda envisioned.
I did a simple washout on the back with a slight burlap texture and a subtle edge burn. This pic of them cracking up is probably one of my favorites, but who can really choose.
It's hard to believe I get to stand as the matron of honor at their wedding in just 88 days! It's going to be such a unique and beautiful affair and I'm guaranteed to be a blubbering tears-of-joy mess the whole time. I can't wait.
