A Love Unwaivering

Everybody loves a good ol’ fashioned destination wedding and where better than Hawaii? Once Maria and Neil decided it was time to tie the knot in the aloha state, they asked if I’d be interested in designing their invitation suite – uhhhh… yes please!

Maria shared her initial thoughts and inspiration for the overall wedding theme (thank you Pinterest!). She was looking for soft turquoise and a punch of yellow to give a beachy vibe with a certain softness that would make the event feel intimate and sophisticated. The couple had already had their engagement shoot and wanted to incorporate their photos into the design.

After a few sketches, I had a plan and whipped out the watercolors. I designed each piece in the suite to stand alone as well as complement the other designs. Ripples, waves and floral leis were hand painted then scanned in to be incorporated with the engagement photos and colorful typography. Once printed, each save the date, invitation and RSVP card was stuffed into a beautiful, bright turquoise envelope.

True Inspiration

When it came to the big day, my watercolor waves just didn’t do the true landscape justice. I mean.. just look at the photos taken during the beach wedding by Hawaii wedding photographer, Roy Nuesca! Maria’s vision for the design and theme for the overall event really came together in an elegantly radiant way and I couldn’t be more happy for the two. Cheers to the Haleys!
