Minted Save the Date designs

I've come up with a few ideas for the latest Minted contest for their "Don't Forget! Minted's Save the Date Challenge" If you have the chance to jump over and maybe give us a like or feedback on our current designs, I'd appreciate it! xo PS on a personal note I lived for a few years on Balboa Island, and the photo of the kids in the "she said yes" design are on the ferry from Balboa Island to the Newport Peninsula (unless I'm mistaken- but it looks like it!) So many good memories there, and still fun to visit when I go home! balboa-she-said-yes

Letterpress printed floral with watercolor LDS wedding invitation set

I had so much fun working on this wedding set, the bride to be wanted lots of flowers and different textures so I was able to integrate wood veneer, metallics, and most of all I hand watercolored all of the invitation cards before we printed them. (This was a little bit more of an undertaking than I had initially anticipated, but well worth it in the end!) This is also the first wedding set I have designed for someone getting married in a Mormon Temple, so I got to learn a lot about sealing ceremonies, ring ceremonies, etc... The Mormon Temple in Oakland is high in the Oakland hills and can be seen at night  (and during the day) from almost anywhere in the East Bay, so it was fun to know this was the destination for their family and friends. We used the 220# Lettra for the invitation (which worked surprisingly well for watercolor), and 110# Lettra for the direction, rsvp and sealing ceremony- the ring ceremony was printed on real wood veneer and the whole set was bound with a wrap imprinted with their initials and date.
