Can you believe how amazed I was when I was in Mexico and saw that everything was hand-painted! It was beautiful. Here are some signs from my honeymoon in May :
A hand-painted street sign.
I'd like to think that all of these tid-bits of inspiration seep into my and Jen's brain and trickle out when it comes time to create new invitations. So, you can imagine how excited we were when our newest client asked for a southern twist to her rehearsal dinner invitations, even though she and her fiance now live in Australia. The bride is originally from Florida and they are getting married near her home town in October. Even though the groom's family is from England, they elected to have a southern buffet for the rehearsal dinner. (which was a nice gesture, if you ask me, since English food really isn't on my top list of fav ethnic foods.) We created a few options to emphasize the beachy aspect of the dinner location, but were really happy when the bride and groom chose the one option that really stood out in our minds. Perhaps I was subconsciously working while I was on my honeymoon, taking in all the beautiful signs. Or I was digging into my design past to recreate what started my sign obsession. Either way, we think it turned out to be a pretty sweet design.
