I’m a longtime fan of illustrator Caitlin Keegan – she was the first illustrator that we collaborated with to create recipe cards for our Friday Happy Hour cocktail series! Today Caitlin is back on OSBP to share a wedding invitation that she recently designed featuring dahlia illustrations, Caitlin’s signature hand lettering, and a cheerful yellow and blue color palette. So pretty!
From Caitlin: I designed this wedding invitation for my good friends who were married in September at an inn in Woodstock, CT that had a dahlia farm. The couple asked that this be incorporated into the design along with their wedding colors. I started with some loose drawings of dahlias in my sketchbook and actually ended up using them for the final design, along with some hand lettering which was also carried over onto their favors and program.
The invitations, RSVP cards, and envelopes were silkscreened by Out of Line Press in Brooklyn and the envelope liners were printed digitally. The bride also used some of the leftover patterned paper to make small notecards for each of the guests, which were distributed with the wedding favors. For the envelope liner, I created a custom dahlia pattern that includes the couple’s initials.
