Wedding Invitations

I was asked to design a wedding invitation set for a Cara and Louis, who will be married at the gorgeous Waveny House in Connecticut this coming August! I also designed their engagement party invites earlier this year. They requested an elegant and vintage style invitation to match the Tudor style mansion setting. I decided to use a lovely floral pattern in a soft peach (a ballet pink for two wonderful ballet dancers) for the backdrop of the invitation set, with a deep lapis shimmer pocket enclosure. I mixed a retro-inspired font I designed with starbursts for the invitation design. The invitation and reply were printed on white cotton paper and bound together with a soft peach cotton band and tag echoing the invitation design. I wish this pair a fabulous wedding day at the fabulous Waveny House!

Here’s a couple of pictures from Natalie’s first dance recital. She did a wonderful job!

I’ll post more as I get a chance to process them.

Enjoy!

an outtake from my photoshoot for my Photoshop class. We need to clone ourselves in an image using Photoshop. I don’t know if any of what I took will work for my project, they’re a bit grainy as the lighting wasn’t so great, and many pics are a bit blurry from movement.  But it was fun taking the shots…

I bought new pointe shoes, so of course I just had to get a pictures of them. Before they get all dirty and mashed up. Is it weird to say I love the smell of new pointes? Yea… it probably is…

For those who care to know, they’re Bloch Aspirations. I’m not sure how I feel about them yet. I feel like the shank is a bit too stiff, and the toe box is a bit wider than I’m used to. My last pair were Gaynor Minden, but that was a long time ago. And since they’re a bit expensive, and a friend of mine works for a shop that carries these, I will try Bloch at least until I get my bearings again.
