Mario & Erin: Vintage Flower Wedding Invitations

May 27, 2010






When my dear friends Mario and Erin decided to tie the knot I was really hoping they’d ask me to do the invitations. They are super cool and have really great taste. Need proof? You might remember when I featured their rad kitchen in the ranch home they just remodeled. Like Daniel & Megan, Mario and Erin are both designers (web/graphic and interior) so it was a little intimidating coming up with the perfect design for their invites.

Mario and Erin gave me the liberty to do anything I wanted – which sounds glamorous but in reality can be overwhelming. I knew that Mario and Erin were to be married in a really gorgeous backyard full of flowers – I found some vintage illustrations of some super sexy flowers and decided to run with it.

I originally designed these in a super neon lime green and grey but toned it down a little when I found out Erin’s bridesmaids were wearing kelly green. I love how non-traditional the scale of imagery and typography is for a wedding invite. A big thank you to Mario and Erin for allowing me to push the envelope on this one.
