Brides of North Texas: Cammie’s Wedding

 

Custom Wedding Invitations Design / Cammie + Dylan

Today’s unique invitation design was hand-crafted for a particularly special bride. I speak on behalf of the entire wedding industry when I say this: we all adore Cammie! As owner of Beautiful Event Rentals, she has curated a collection of unique rental pieces that we all know and love. In fact, you’ve probably seen several of her pieces in styled shoots here on the blog. Plus, she’s sweet as pie and so helpful to fellow wedding pros. Needless to say, we were all thrilled when Cammie and Dylan got engaged. It’s a joy to celebrate this amazing couple!

Their wedding day was brimming with unique personality. A burgundy and navy color palette set the tone for a memorable occasion, captured by the ever-talented Meggie Taylor. The gorgeous deep-hued blooms from Petals Couture were the finishing touch in every scene… and of course, the furniture and décor were absolutely on point!

The Invitation Suite

I had the pleasure of creating Cammie’s styled invitation suite: a reflection of her wedding-day vision, featuring brush script and watercolor details. Cammie was an unconventional bride with a bit of a modern indie vibe, so I definitely wanted to create a distinctive look with her paper goods. The geometric pattern on the invitation was loosely inspired by some of the Beautiful Event Rentals rugs—which are definitely a popular choice among wedding industry pros. Add a custom-lettered envelope liner, venue illustration on vellum paper, and a sweet quote print: the perfect suite for Dylan and Cammie.

Take a look at this modern custom wedding invitations design, and take a moment to swoon over Cammie’s stunning bridal style. Don’t forget to check out the Beautiful Event Rentals website to see Cammie’s well-curated rental selection… plus, stay tuned to the blog here at Sarah Ann Design. We’ve got a few more weddings coming up that feature Beautiful Event Rentals pieces—I have a feeling you’re going to love ’em!

Brides of North Texas: 70’s Inspired

 

Custom Wedding Invitations DFW: Brides of North Texas 70s Inspired Suite // Sarah Ann Design

 

Custom Wedding Invitations DFW / 70s-Inspired Suite

Did you check out the latest issue of Brides of North Texas yet? Now’s your chance! It’s a key inspirational resource for brides-to-be, and the perfect way to connect with top-notch local vendors. You can find the magazine soon at Barnes & Noble, or stop by the Brides of North Texas website to have one delivered right to your doorstep.

As I mentioned, I really pushed the envelope (Ha—get it? Okay, okay—I know, that was bad!) this season. I ventured away from my signature aesthetic to create invitation suites that would stand out as unique designs, make an impact in print, and really capture the theme of each shoot. When I received word that I would be collaborating on a 1970’s-inspired suite, I was over the moon. I love groovy 70s vibes, in everything from music and movie costumes to graphic design.

Lots of people commented that this would be a tough theme, but I had no reservations about diving headfirst into this funky color palette and groovy design. Inspired by a groovy 70’s vibe, this invitation suite captures the best of both worlds: bold typography and elegant calligraphy—all topped with subtle details that speak to the audacious bride. Pairing deep greens and bright oranges with brown earth tones brought a distinctive style to life; the rich color palette keeps this suite rooted in a retro aesthetic, complemented by bold typography that evokes a 70’s feel. My hand-lettered calligraphy script elevates the design with a touch of sophistication appropriate to a wedding invitation suite.

My favorite part? Gosh, it’s hard to pick! I had a lot of fun playing with chunky typography… how often is it that a bride is bold enough to embrace an oversized orange ampersand? And that unorthodox color combo on the Save the Date is still giving me heart-eyes. Aside from that, the macrame backdrop from Beautiful Event Rentals served as a particular inspiration; I hand-illustrated the macrame weaving and created a custom pattern from my drawing—seen throughout the suite as a subtle design detail and as an envelope liner pattern.

Overall, this suite captures a funky retro style for the unintimidated couple who is bold enough to embrace a wonderfully groovy ’70s concept.

It just goes to show how personalized your wedding invitations can be if you’re not afraid to run with an out-of-the-box theme. I hope you like how it turned out, and don’t forget to pick up your copy of the latest Brides of North Texas magazine to see it in print!

Cuban-Inspired Bridal Style

Wedding Stationery / Cuban-Inspired Shoot

What a treat to work with the talented Stan Kwan again! His vision for a Cuban-inspired bridal session resulted in an absolutely beautiful collaboration. A combination of pastel painted walls, geometric gates, tropical florals, and vintage furniture mimic the Spanish-colonial feel of Old Havana… And you can almost hear the music as this poised and elegant bride twirls in her embellished gown.

The wedding stationery layers beautiful paper textures for a delicate and tactile design. The line border is inspired by Havana’s 1950’s Spanish colonial architecture—which often features unique archways. The custom envelope liner features the textural detail of the venue’s pastel walls, echoed by paint texture applied to the envelope. Wax seals and twine are the finishing touches for this Cuban-inspired suite.

Take a peek, be be forewarned: this gallery may induce feelings of wanderlust! This pretty shoot has me dreaming of a Caribbean adventure…

Branding: Thistle + Twig

 

Wedding invitations have my heart these days, but sometimes it feels good to get back to a little wedding industry branding and logo design! I dreamt up this sweet little portfolio concept today for a fine art floral designer: Thistle + Twig. If you’re loving the popular wedding-industry trend toward warm hues, this one’s for you! Founded on a muted goldenrod yellow, this color palette evokes warmth, elegance, and the organic beauty of a summer bouquet.

A loose script logo paired with a textural serif sets the tone for the brand. With a custom thistle and twig illustration to use as a secondary mark (perfect for website use, a letterhead watermark, business cards… endless possibilities!), this design is a versatile one. I’m loving the personalized pattern, and the calligraphic submark combining the “t”s and ampersand from the primary logo. All in all, Thistle + Twig’s brand exudes a warm, organic aesthetic that is guaranteed to set this design apart.

Take a peek and enjoy!
