Happy Monday everyone! I’m so excited to kick the week off with these gorgeous illustrated wedding invitations from Briana and Jason at Brainstorm – created for their own wedding last month! I’ve been a huge fan of their prints and posters for years and years and I’ve been lucky to get to know Briana and Jason a bit over those years. I love how much their wedding invitations reflect their personalities and unique sense of adventure! These screen printed invitations for Briana and Jason’s wedding weekend in the mountains feature awesome illustrations and hand lettering – all without taking themselves too seriously. Love!
From Briana: We’ve been together for eight years all the while running Brainstorm (our poster and illustration business). Our wedding was the culmination of that time together. We didn’t want to go overboard with fancy papers, printing, layers and production. We’re busy selling posters, ya know? So we kept it super simple. And not taking ourselves too seriously is probably the most important thing to us. It’s what keeps us happy in life and work (how else could you spend every waking minute with the same person?). We wanted our wedding invitations to reflect our personalities, our sense of humor and to also give visual clues to our guests.
The wedding was a barbecue at a barn house in the mountains of Upstate New York and we took major inspiration from that. The barn was a renovated into an amazing vacation home and we were able to have our immediate family sleep over, as well as have other guests camp on the property. There were no shoes allowed in the house (as per the owners request!) and it was funny to try to convey that to our guests beforehand.
People didn’t really know what to expect when we said we were getting married in a barn, but they were pleasantly surprised when they arrived. We practically wrote a novel on the back trying to help people understand. You can never be too thorough when you’re doing something out of the ordinary for a wedding. 🙂 It was a four hour drive for our New Hampshire guests and about two and half for our New Jersey/New York guests, so we asked people to bring their sense of adventure to brave the winding mountain roads…
Thanks Briana and Jason!
