a love affair - part two

We definitely wanted our invitations to be a collaboration between the two of us. We started by discussing ideas over beers (as most of our plans usually start), and eventually strayed from over-the-top-hand-made-custom-everything elaborate invitations to something that would suit ourselves and our wedding a whole lot more. Between his drawing and screenprinting skills, my digital design skills, and our mutual fondness for clean lines and simple shapes, we came up with the design for these.

Then came a whole lotta sketching, scanning, kerning, tweaking, cutting, scoring, folding, sealing, spray-glueing. 

The overall process looked a lot like these pages from Adrian Tomine's Scenes from an Impending Marriage – a highly recommended, relatable read for any (previous) bride (or bride-to-be!).
