custom designed save the dates!

okay, this probably is one of the coolest designs that i have ever gotten to be a part of!

i truly love when my couples and i begin collaborating on their wedding design, and we start dreaming up fun ways to infuse their design elements into various parts of the day. this save the date is the result of one of those crazy brainstorming sessions!

last week, i introduced you to my very fantastical, fun, colorful couple g+h, who were very inspired by their cultural heritage when taking their engagement photos. one thing i picked up on from my first meeting with griselda was her love of loteria cards, and i knew that i wanted us to incorporate it in the wedding…but in a way that was different than myself and others have done before.

during our design meetings, i mentioned doing save the dates inspired by her engagement photo of the “la dama and el catrin” loteria cards. from that conversation, one design concept flowed into another, till finally we sketched out this idea to actually have their own custom loteria game card in which all the images are details about the wedding. griselda thought of custom images for the art, the music, the floral to use along with actual loteria designs to make the card feel more authentic. we also wanted to include shots from their engagement session with jen disney to make the card feel more personalized to them!

who did we turn to in order to turn our wacky ideas into amazingness? the fabulous lori with paper and thread studio! from our initial meeting, lori was bursting at the seams with excitement about this project. as you can see from her final product, she did not disappoint. they actually came out more perfect than we could have even expected!!

g+h are jumping with excitement and can’t wait to send them out to their guests…and i can’t wait to start the fun with the invitation design concepts! it’s going to be fabulous!!
