Now these are FUN wedding invitations – and I love the combination of modern illustration with a rustic woodland design theme! Michael Casebolt of Casebolt Design + Illustration created these wedding invitations for good friends Seth and Summer, building his design from their love for western North Carolina. The invitations were screen printed in two colors on the front and three colors inside by the talented folks of Mama’s Sauce. Love!
From Seth: Summer and I both strive for perfection. When it came to our wedding invitations we had very high expectations, to say the least. Knowing our limitations, we contacted our friend Mike – designer/illustrator extraordinaire! Summer and I met with Mike and presented our (very) rough sketch and flickr inspiration set. We discussed our interest in national parks and our connections to western North Carolina and gave him free reign to have fun.
After only a short time of not knowing what to expect we received our first glimpse of Mike’s work: the two front panels of the invitation. It was everything we had envisioned and more! It made me WANT to open the flaps and see what was inside. We told him it was awesome, urged him to continue, and patiently waited for what was to come.
Elaborating on the exterior look and tying together every loose end we had pitched him, Mike nailed it! All the elements were included in one cohesive illustration that really defined our ideal wedding. We were very pleased with Mike’s work and impressed with his ability to merge our concept with his playful style.
