Our Wedding: invitations and cake toppers!

August 6, 2009

Now that, for the most part, our guests have received them, its finally safe to blog about our wedding invitations. This invitation suite was designed by me (why yes, I DO also do wedding invitation design! Check out the design gallery on the portfolio site and click here for more info). Our wedding will have kind of a carnival/circus/county fair/summer barbeque theme and I want to reflect that in the invitations. Also Geoff and I are pretty untraditional so loopy script typefaces were thrown out the window. I’m really happy with the outcome of the design.

With the business Geoff and I run together, elephants hold a soft spot in our hearts now. Plus they go along great with our theme!

Next up, our elephant cake toppers! I LOVE these! They are handmade by the amazing Hilary, the artist/craftslady behind Bunny with a Toolbelt. Check out her Etsy shop here, she makes the most adorable wooden sculptures. Well, when I saw these I knew they would be perfect!

Two weeks to go, people. Geoff and I are so excited! We have lots of little projects to finish up and so many more little details to share! Excitement!

Both the invitations and cake toppers are ADORABLE! Where did you get your invitations printed? I’ve been looking for a good print shop.

I love all of this! Your cake toppers made my heart skip a beat – too cute for words. And lucky me, I got to see the invites in person a while back. So talented you are miss lisa. I so wish I knew you a couple of years ago to design my paper goods for my wedding! So happy for you two – enjoy these last couple of weeks of planning!
