Wedding Stationery

Have you ever kept a secret? Like a REALLY big secret? A secret that you were bursting at the seams to share. One so big that it could change the course of your life. Like a purple unicorn secret. That’s the kind of secret Kim & West held onto before their wedding. All their guests knew was that they were to be in Flagstaff on the day of the wedding, and they would all be transported by bus to a secret location. Say what?! They kept their wedding location a secret from their friends and family up until their wedding day. That’s like celebrity wedding status!! I couldn’t have been more pumped to create their wedding in the woods letterpress stationery for such a special couple with a fun secret. The pre-wedding stationery included the invitation, response card and extra insert, all using my own painting and hand writing!   … Read More
