When Casie Fischer of Thistle Wynd Productions contacted me to create a celestial themed invitation suite to be used in a shoot for Love Wins Texas Weddings Magazine I was thrilled! This was my second time creating an invitation suite for the magazine, but my first time partnering with Thistle Wynd. For so many reasons I was glad to be brought in on this one, not the least of which being the chance to work with Casie - something I now do as often as I can! The woman has serious style! Just look at this shoot!
Real-life engaged couple Brit & Zach served as our models for the shoot.
A full suite was created for this shoot. Watercolor washes provided a night sky feel, with a bit of star mapping on the invitations and the envelope calligraphy to add a touch of the unexpected. I think the details are what really bring an ensemble together, don't you?
This elegantly draped sequin table cloth just slays me. This setting is the height of romance.
The tablescapes were moody stunners. And the cake by Walton's Fancy & Staple of Austin, Texas, was a hand painted masterpiece. Have you ever seen a cake so elegant? Love the little golden ox and ram on the top, which represent the groom's zodiac signs. So clever!
To me Casie's work shines with her use of clever, unexpected details.
The menus for Zach and Brit's wedding dinner were entirely hand lettered. No fonts here, just brush lettering! Is it obsessive? I'd just say I'm keen.
The biggest danger in hand lettering is getting the hungries from writing out delicious meals!
And congratulations to Zach and Brit who were married a short time after this shoot!
