Falling In Love

Continuing through my box of projects and realizing Valentine's Day is less than a week away, I thought I'd post a love-related piece every day this week. This is Day 1 of 5.

If you think about it, designing custom wedding paper suites are surprisingly similar to creating a brand identity, so needless to say I love it!

For Mbong + Mark's fall wedding, they wanted an aesthetic that would reflect the season and match the "spicy, exotic" hues of their wedding. Mbong also noted she likes leaves and flowers and was drawn to horizontally oriented invitations and textured papers she came across in her preliminary search. These qualities were to be balanced by more classic wording and layouts to reflect their identities and venue.

After some experimentation with colors, leaf shapes, and fonts, this was the final result, with varying density and framing of the leaf motif to give each piece a distinctive look when received together:

Dark browns and greens may be unusual for weddings, but I really enjoy how it all came together—hope you do too!
