Whimsical Wedding

It’s no secret that I adore my CRICUT EXPLORE™ and I jumped at the chance to design a DIY wedding invitation suite for their recently launch wedding collection. They asked me to focus on a whimsical theme, and since whimsical and playful are right up my alley, it was a no-brainer to create this DIY Whimsical Wedding Stationery suite. Since I had so many amazing ideas that were inspired by the whimsical theme, I brought the magical touch to the entire wedding suite. For a further look at the full DIY Whimsical Wedding Stationery theme, check out Part One & Part Two. To put the icing on the cake, the awesome team members from Cricut invited me for an interview so their clients could meet the maker behind the designs. {Cue the confetti!} I was stoked! Not only did I get to design an exclusive wedding stationery collection, but the people behind Cricut were so impressed … Read More

Moroccan Inspired Wedding Stationery // Phoenix, Arizona

Heidi Moore • wedding

Wedding Stationery

Pinks and purples and blues, oh my! Friends let me tell you firsthand that I LOVE having the opportunity to play with colors and designs outside of the traditional box. This Moroccan styled shoot at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia was no different. And, it was featured in Brides! I was pumped to add my own flair to this Moroccan-inspired shoot by creating the stationery suite, menu, and escort cards. I started with the invitation suite combining clean, streamlined fonts with a more organic, feather-inspired pattern. The entire suite was enclosed in a clear cellophane envelope, showcasing the feather pattern before guests opened their invitation. So rad! The suite was then finished off with a custom address label adhered to the outside. For the escort card display, each card had it’s own stand, making it more impactful and free-standing. To add even more personality, I hand-stamped a circle around … Read More

Bright Patterned Wedding Stationery // Phoenix, Arizona

bright patterned wedding stationery

Oh, I just love when couples have a color palette as bright and joyful as Stephanie and Andrew! For their Sanctuary wedding, this amazing & full-of-fun couple approached me with their turquoise and fuchsia inspiration board, and immediately I knew it would be a perfect compliment to the breathtaking desert backdrop. Bright stationery for an even brighter love story. The invitation suite used bright pops of turquoise balanced out with a soft gray, utilizing san serif, modern fonts which were finished off and grounded by large amounts of white space. The patterned liner was inspired by the couples linens and I love how it added an extra dimension to the suite.   I carried the same color combinations into the programs, but I added playful icons and spacing to carry the guests throughout the night. The program was multi-purposed in that it wasn’t only the program, but also the itinerary for the entire … Read More
