Weddings are incredible celebrations, but I'd argue that my brother's wedding to my new sister, Allie, was one for the books. Their sweet love is infectious and they always put family first – including letting me letter some pieces for their big day! I'm so glad I could help make their special day even more special with some hand-lettered pieces.
To create this invitation suite, I worked with Allie and Jon to decide on fonts, layout, and content for the invitation, reception card, and RSVP card. I created this digitally, lettering on my iPad using Procreate and digitizing the writing on Illustrator. The lettering for their names and monogram was inspired by a font called Biancha, available now on Creative Market.
Materials used: iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Illustrator
Invitations were printed and letter-pressed by an outside company.
Guests notice the small details! Handwritten place cards are a simple and thoughtful piece of your place settings. Stay classic like Allie did, or get adventurous and feature place cards on Monstera leaves, agate, or wood slices.
Materials used: Colonial Blue Recollections cardstock; Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleedproof White ink
CUSTOMIZED DRESS HANGER
A customized hanger is a perfect addition to your wedding day – and makes a perfect photo prop and keepsake! Get one for the bride, bridesmaid, or the flower girl.

After the invitations were complete, the happy couple decided to use their monogram on more unique pieces for their wedding, including personalized napkins and beer koozies.
