“I am a dream catcher. You are my dreams. So let me catch you.”
Anne and Samuel are set to marry in June at Windows on the Water. I had the pleasure of working with Anne and her mother originally on the Save-the-Dates and now the invitations. Anne really wanted the invitations to be light hearted and colorful and also incorporate dream catchers into the design.
After a lot of brainstorming and discussions, the invitation was designed as a flat invitation and bordered by the bottom of the dream catcher’s colorful feathers. The feathers were designed with a watercolor treatment to create a subtly to the liberal use of color. For balance, the type was all black and in a mix of a simple all-caps and a handwritten font.
Wrapped around the invitation was a double belly band purple fabric and rope inspired yarn and finished with a silver moon charm. Tucked behind the invitation was the details booklet and designed with a bold colored dream catcher on the front.
Once opened, the booklet contained “I’m Lost” and “I’m Sleepy” and a “RSVP” tear-off postcard. The “I’m Sleepy” is so cute, right?
It truly was so fun to design these invitations. To Anne and Samuel, thank you for allowing APS to be a part of your day and may all your dreams together come true. XOXO – Lisa
