bespoke design: an experience
You have spent time planning the wedding of your dreams, negotiating venues, flowers, centerpieces, dress cuts + more. Devoting countless hours navigating inspiration photos + physical elements to help bring your visions to life. Now you are ready to make certain your guests are prepared to celebrate with you.
When you start dreaming of invitations, you might imagine something that reflects the little details of your love story, your proposal, your upcoming new life together while conveying the romance of your wedding. You want something that evokes excitement + anticipation in your guests, having them all abuzz about your new chapter together - which is certain to be a spectacular event - just from receiving their invitation. That's where I come in.
I'm here to work with you to help turn your ideas + inspiration into stunning, tangible paper keepsakes. We'll review your inspiration photos + adjectives for how you want your wedding to make guests feel to use as a starting point for your design.
From here I'll put together a short look book for you to review that's specific to your wedding - its colors, feel + sentiments. After confirming that we're headed in the same direction, you'll receive a sketch of your entire suite. Once the sketch is approved, I'll get to work building your invitation - calligraphing names, drawing pieces, painting elements + compiling it all to build a final suite - your first commissioned artwork as a couple. As an Earnest Bee couple, you will receive a keepsake invitation to save with your other tangible wedding memories.
