Birmingham Save the Date

I was honored to get the chance to create a unique Save the Date for a super cool couple recently. Though not originally from Birmingham, they both ended up here and decided to have their wedding take place in The Magic City, as well.

They wanted a vintage-inspired postcard, highlighting the city where they will be married…

Using stock photos of Birmingham and a lot of  Photoshop and Illustrator techniques, we came up with something that was reminiscent of the 70s…

One of my favorite details is the subtle postmark element with their wedding date…

Detail of the letters…can you tell which areas of Birmingham are represented?

There’s just something about Save the Dates that make me excited! You get a glimpse of the couple’s style…and you get to mark your calendar for a celebration.

Cheers to Jim and Julie!
