Kristen and Loren met in high school and had been together for over ten years before they decided to get hitched.
Our wedding was to be held on a beautiful, grassy hill on a farm in Charlottesville, VA, with the reception taking place in an old barn. We wanted a rustic-yet-elegant wedding invitation that represented our wedding and our personalities.
Since we were to be married on our eleven-year anniversary, I envisioned an infographic timeline of our lives showing how long we had been together. A Venn diagram monogram evolved out of this, which then informed the rest of the design including icons, a map, and a flowchart. I designed with letterpress in mind to bring an intimate quality to the invitations—knowing the monogram, which consists of two colors, when overprinted would create a third color. We packaged them into paper-bag-colored envelopes and rubber stamped them to keep with the rustic farm wedding tone and further reflect our personalities.
