Michelle + Matt’s Whimsical Watercolor Save the Dates

Happy Monday everyone! Emily from mStarr event design sent over these whimsical wedding save the dates for a couple with a fondness for libraries and the great outdoors. After deciding on the overall concept with her clients, Emily turned to Julie Song Ink for the watercolor illustration and design, then to Anne Robin Calligraphy to address the deep plum envelopes. The result is simply stunning!


From Emily: Michelle and Matt met in their college library and both are doctors (she a medical doctor, he a PhD), so they’ve seen their fair share of libraries! They’ll be taking over the Migis Lodge and its campgrounds for their wedding, with a reception in the main lodge overlooking Sebago Lake, fire pits, and cabins! From the very beginning of our overall design process, we envisioned a “summer camp chic” weekend with books and organic and whimsical elements woven throughout.


So when it came time to think about their wedding stationery, I suggested the one and only Julie Song to bring the vision to life with her free flowing calligraphy and watercolor illustrations. We shared the general color palette along with the idea to incorporate a book and the outdoors – and let her run with it! We decided on that gorgeous deep berry color for the envelope and asked one of my favorite calligraphers Anne Robin to do the addresses in white ink. She nailed it.


Thanks Emily!
