The image of initials carved in wood is such an icon of love, and so very sweet as part of a wedding invitation! Chloe from hello there, designÂ created these invitations for a fall wedding in Colorado, incorporating the heart illustration along with the bare trunks of aspen trees. The invitations and RSVP envelopes were then screen printed by the talented folks atÂ Mama’s SauceÂ for an added element of color and texture. Pretty!
From Chloe: The wedding colors were purple and silver/gray; so a mixture of two whimsical and romantic typefaces in two purple hues are really set off against the white and pale gray background. Erin really wanted to capture the physical place, Breckenridge, Colorado, in the invitations. Aspen trees came up in our very first conversation and became our primary design motif. I love the look of bare aspen trees and created an illustration of some aspen trunks.
I incorporated a little “tree carving” that says “E+J” which added a little extra sweetness. This heart with the “E+J” became the second motif used in the invitations and was carried over to the RSVP cards and envelopes.
