10.29.15 | Do You.

The urban dictionary states that the phrase “do you” means:

1. acting in a way that satisfies you, not caring about what others think
2. following your heartDena + Jim did just that when they surprised their family and friends with an elopement announcement on August 20th!  A formal ceremony was not their style, so instead they snuck away to Denver, Colorado and got married!

Shortly after their return, Dena reached out to me to design their ‘Wedding Announcement + Celebration” invitation.  Last weekend they celebrated with family and friends, Wisconsin-style–wearing Badgers apparel.

Congrats again Dena + Jim!

09.06.15 | Lakeside Wedding ~ Port Washington, WI

Congratulations to Jenn + Matt…these two got hitched yesterday!

Initially Jenn wasn’t exactly sure what she envisioned for their wedding invitations, but after a few discussions and brainstorming sessions with her fiance {now husband} we came up with the designs below.

{Unique Features}

  • The photo in the background of their invitation is actually a photo from Jenn’s phone. It shows the view of Lake Michigan from their ceremony location in Port Washington, WI.
  • Due to the fact that Jenn + Matt would have many out of town guests, they included a Milwaukee Weekend Guide as a part of their invitation.  This allowed guests to have some time to plan their Labor Day Weekend activities, besides the wedding festivities, of course.  It also brought out their playful sense of humor!
  • Lastly, they wrapped their invite, accommodations card, RSVP, reception card and weekend guide with twine/burlap ribbon to add a special finishing touch–before stuffing their craft paper envelopes which carried on their outdoor wedding theme.
