Picnic in the Park
The weather here in California is absolutely gorgeous today! It reminded me of this invitation we did for Odessa & Mikel. They had a casual day filled with their closest friends and family. They were married in a local park between two huge sequoia trees with their guests huddled in close. The reception showcased a local restaurant, Bakesale Betty, that has earned a cult-like following for their fried chicken sandwiches and homemade strawberry shortcake that is to die for!
The couple chose not to have a reply card so their guests could "save a tree" and reply online. They splurged instead on an over-sized invite and a third color that made the illustrative nature of the invitation come to life. The reference to intricate vintage packaging and the brides' choice of bold colors created a beautiful, elaborate design that makes you want to look twice!
