J + K: Wedding Photos

March 31, 2009

I’ll be peppering in posts with our wedding photos throughout the week.

Because we got married at our home we decided to get gussied up and take our wedding photos throughout the city – bricktown, an old warehouse (my office), downtown and at the park near our home.

A photographer I’ve been working with for years, Simon Hurst, took all these photos towards the beginning of March, right as the weather warmed up a little.

These are just a few for now. We did the shoot with five different cameras – digital, 35mm, twin lens reflector, Holga and two different Polaroids.

J + K: The Wedding Invitations

March 31, 2009

The most intimidating thing to do as a designer is design for yourself. Especially something like a wedding invitation.

So I decided to go with a “non-design” – I had to approach it as such to get past my own mental freak out of “ohmygodicantdesignmyowninvitations.” My sister wrote the copy for the invites with a few tweaks from Jeremy. I knew I wanted a Wes Anderson vibe – a kind of correspondence letter.

My favorite details are the silhouettes and our signatures (that we actually signed on each and every invitation.) We did a postcard for the reception invitation with the same look and feel.

I designed all of this and printed it on a laser and ink jet printer only in black. I gathered paper from a local Hobby store and my own paper collection I’ve accrued through the years.

P.S. Here are the invitations I designed for a coworker.

P.P.S. I can design invitations for you too.

What impresses me the most, if you don’t mind me tooting my own horn, is that I designed all of this and printed it on a laser and ink jet printer only in black. I gathered paper from a local Hobby store and my own paper collection I’ve accrued through the years.

He asked at Disney World last November and I was completely surprised. I said yes, of course.

I do.

Jeremy and I got married yesterday!

That means this will be wedding week at J&K. Tomorrow I’ll be posting the invitations we designed.

xoxo!
