Project Narrative

When planning a wedding, the invitations set the tone. When your Grandmother is an artist, and your Sister is a graphic designer, it becomes a family affair. My Sister’s vision for her wedding was gray and greenery with the Groom and Groomsmen wearing navy. She loved the idea of having watercolor greenery featured on her invitations. While watercolors are not my strength, our Grandmother is an incredible watercolor artist. After some convincing, she agreed to paint some pieces for us to use in the initiations.

I developed a cohesive wedding suite that included the invitations, church programs, a weekend schedule for the bridal party, place cards, table numbers, and other signage for the reception. I also hand-addressed each envelope with a printed and script style for the outer, inner, and RSVP envelopes.  

Our Grandmother painted us three different greenery bunches, each one a little different. They set the tone for the initiations. I set on exploring different layouts and finding the perfect font combination – a bold script and a more modern all caps font. We used all three of the greenery paintings on the invitation set – one on the Invitation, another on the response card. We then used the same one for both the Reception and Accommodations card.
