Real Weddings: Ashley and Carlos

It's funny how social media can connect people everywhere, even in the same city. Ashley had reached out to me after finding us on Instagram. She was looking for a stationary vendor that could design something different and new. Ashley had scoured the internet and local businesses but couldn't find exactly what she was looking for. 

We came up with a simple, elegant design that would compliment her color scheme. However, we both felt that there was still something missing from the overall design. Ashley visited the studio and we began discussing ideas that would make her design complete. I asked about any personal touches she would be adding to the ceremony or reception. Maybe using that same element or something similar on the invitation would do the trick. Immediately, she replied, "Can you draw a bike?". It turns out that Carlos, her fiance (now husband), loves cycling. So to celebrate this part of his personality, she found a cake topper from a shop on ETSY called Simply Silhouettes. Since we had already planned to include a belly band for her order, we added a simple adornment with the silhouette of a groom cycling with his bride on the back with her veil in the wind.

I think it was the perfect touch she was looking for in her design. We used a cream-colored, metallic card stock as a base for the invitation set and printed a gradient of Sangria and Violet for the printed design. The belly band adornment used the same card stock for the invitation and the belly band itself was an amethyst colored card stock. 

Check out some of the photos from Ashley and Carlos' big day! You'll also find a set of Mr. and Mrs. signs that we created for the event as well. ;D
