High school sweethearts Krista and Josh love nature, so it made total sense for Krista to draw her inspiration from the great outdoors while designing the invitations for her wedding last summer. Krista incorporated a tree, clouds, and a whimsical script font into the design, which was enclosed in a woodgrain pocket folder. Ironically, Krista and Josh had to cancel their southern New Jersey reception at the last minute due to the derecho that pummeled the East Coast last summer – you’ll definitely want to click the link below for the incredible story!
From Krista: My husband Josh and I love the great outdoors. We camp. We hike. We got engaged on a mountain. We basically grew up in the woods, in the same small square-mile town in New Jersey: Tree City USA aka Wenonah. So naturally, the first thing that came to mind was: a tree. Little did we know that our reception would be cancelled due to a power outage from downed trees of a high wind derecho storm the night before, but that’s a whole other story.
I started with the tree and then incorporated the butterflies, hearts, clouds, and little frog prince… and a lot of color. Next came the very important part of finding a hand-script font to match, which in the end, really made our little fairytale-land come to life. Once the actual invitation design was complete, I was able to carry the look and feel to the rest of the suite: the directions, accommodations, reception and reply cards, and envelopes.
I knew from the start that I would use a natural white linen card stock, since it’s my favorite paper and has that rustic vibe. But then, I had my O-M-G moment when I found the most perfect pocket fold card stock – textured woodgrain! The final touch was tying it off with a natural green raffia ribbon and a pink paper butterfly.
Beautiful! Thanks Krista!
