Laicie + Mark’s California Farm Wedding Save the Dates

Happy Monday everyone!  We’re starting off the week with a sweet illustrated wedding save the date by NYC-based designer and photographer Matthew Novak.  Matthew’s clients, Mark and Laicie, are planning a fall wedding on a farm in California, so Matthew created a light hearted design inspired in part by a camping permit and in part by the wedding location!

From Matt: Mark and Laicie are getting married on a farm in California, but have a love for camping and the outdoors.  We decided to create a save the date that was inspired by a camping permit.

We played with the wording a bit to make sure it was light hearted and fun.  I had received a rough pencil sketch of what the farmhouse looked like.  I used this as a guideline to create the farmhouse illustration on the bottom of the save the date.


I love letterpress, so the decision to go in that direction was easy.  The third “color” – a blind (inkless) impression – really helped sell the permit style by creating dividers throughout the whole piece.

Thanks Matt!

  1. Thank you for the feature! Matt did such an amazing job transforming our ideas into reality. We couldn’t be more excited about the way they turned out.

  2. I love how it says please don’t feed the ostriches on the farmhouse permit. The invitation is adorable. I really like the light green and baby blue colours together.
