Don and Emily are such a wonderful couple. From the moment we saw them as a bridesmaid and guest at Matt and Diane’s wedding, we knew their love was something special. When we met with Emily and she told us about their own wedding, we were thrilled at the opportunity to be a part of it and get to know them better. Don and Emily were planning a beach wedding at Parajo Dunes, a resort along the Monterey Bay in Watsonville, CA. Lots of family and friends were renting condos and beach homes and even camping for the wedding weekend. Emily and Don really wanted to incorporate both a camping and beach theme, along with their color palette of navy with bright oranges and yellows. We created lots of cute camping-based illustrations for a fun, casual look. Let’s start with their Save the Date!
My favorite part is the old-stlye lantern with the heart flame. It was carried across through all of the design. Emily said it inspired some of the decor at the wedding, which you’ll see in their wedding post coming up next.
When it came time to do the wedding invitation, we went a little more formal, but still kept all the fun, colorful elements. We designed the invitation, RSVP, envelope liners, and super cute map.
“Can we get a witness?” Love it! We did a postcard RSVP.
I really love the map!
Here are some close-ups of the illustrations. Love the vintage camper!
This was a really fun suite to design! Stay tuned for Don and Emily’s wedding photography post later today!
