Love Birds

I must first say that this blog is loong overdue! Things have been super busy in the nimblee shop the last few months, and it’s been hard to catch my breath! Sorry for the post delay!

This invitation suite was one of the most fun and creative designs I’ve had the pleasure of putting together all year. And, it’s always extra special to get to create for an old friend!

Julianna and Zach wanted something different and unique-something that really displayed their sense of style. One email from her said, “Be as creative and funky as you like.” That is music to a designer’s ears! :)

She wanted bold, muted colors with a vintage vibe. One description she gave of the targeted feel: “Lots of mason jars, vintage tablecloths and mismatched antique china.” I loved it right from the start!

Once the wedding suite was complete, we focused on creating a custom wedding thumbprint tree. Julianna and Zach wanted something more than your standard guestbook-they wanted a piece of artwork that their guests could help create.

I have always had an affinity for drawing and painting trees, so I was undoubtedly excited about this design mission! We created enough branches for the number of guests that were expected and got creative with some wording, too! I have to thank my associate art director (thanks, hubby!) for his handy-work and clever wording on this one.

Can you find the love birds? :)

Finished and lovely.

    SB! I love this! I especially adore the thumbprint tree. I also don’t know why the shift key isn’t working as I post this comment.

      I’m so glad you like! This was for a couple that, like you, loves the Beatles, so we stuck with a cool, vintage theme. :) Those darn shift keys will get you every time…
