A Surreal Day In September

Wow it's been so long since I've posted anything!  I'd like to think I have an excuse... so lets see if this counts.  Joe and I got married this past September, and being the overachiever that I am bit off more then I could chew and decided to hand make a lot of the details of our wedding...

For starters here are the invitations I made!

Since our venue was outdoors under a tree canopy we wanted the invitations to posses the same Neverland/Mumford&Sons vibe our wedding had about it.  I've been obsessing about mid century design for a good year now and Joe has always been a fan of the aesthetics of the 50's, so wanted our invitations to have some of those retro qualities while still illustrating the ethereal undertones that our venue Wildwood Acres Resort is best known for. 

Aside from the invitations for our 150 guests (so much for the small wedding we wanted!) I couldn't find flowers that had the look I was going for . . . lets just say I'm a lil particular.  But can you blame me!  Plus on top of that I found out 3 weeks before the wedding that Joe's Best Man has severe allergies.  Even though he said that he was going to double up on his medicine I wasn't ok with the thought of sticking a flower boutonniere right under his nose!

So I decided to MAKE all the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres out of paper!  Everyone kept commenting on how nice it is that my bouquet was nice and light weight... no bulging muscles while I walked down the isle that day PLUS a sneezing free Best Man!

Now that I am slowly getting settled in my new life I can finally get going on all the art ideas I had swimming around in my head for months!  This is proving to be a good year!
