I could not be more in love with this save the date. Seriously. Laura and Vanya’s sweet love story of travel across the globe came to life with a bit of visual hyperbole and a ton of personality. The couple’s nicknames for eachother; dog and bunny, were brought to life as characters in this spirited save the date story. Additionally, being that both are part of the publishing world, it was important that literature make a statement in the design.
From beachcombing to boating this couple has traveled the world and wanted each step of the way to become an artistic element of these save the dates. Knowing that this would be the first detail to meet guests eyes, Vanya and Laura wanted it to be a showstopper, communicating the fun and inventiveness of their personalities at every turn .
Hand painted book pages became envelope liners and bellybands…
And of course the dog and bunny piloted the plane as painted on their save the date packaging…
Pages were torn from a large volume. then washed with watercolor blues and hand trimmed to size.
Love the touches of white painted against the parchment cardstock throughout.
Thank so much to Lauren and Vanya for inviting us to bring this vision to life. Having a blast with the invitation design already. What a journey!
