This map set was so much fun to work on. The bride and groom asked if it would be possible to include an invitation to a brunch that will be taking place the day after the wedding and I was very excited for the challenge. Since the brunch menu features a hog roast,  the bride asked for a classic image of, well, a roasted pig with an apple in its mouth. The wedding colors are  yellow and chocolate brown so we incorporated them as well – adding some red for the apples and green for the trees. On the back of the map are the directions to each location. The finished product was printed on a cream linen paper and I was told that the bride’s cat was very pleased by the packaging that these arrived in (packing peanuts and bubble wrap).

 

This past week I visited Flora Grubb in San Francisco after having seen hints of this garden center over and over again. Most recently I saw an engagement shoot at Flora Grubb and was finally convinced that I had to go check it out for myself. Flora Grubb specializes in hanging or vertical gardens like the wall of succulents (set against the red tin fence), or the bicycle covered in air plants. I went just because I was intrigued and came away totally inspired by the color combinations everywhere I looked: bright green with steel grey and orange, cerulean with red and yellow. Shades of vibrant green on a weathered fence… As an added surprise I found that there is a Ritual Coffee bar right in the shop! Not only can you go to peruse the specimen plants and ogle the color combinations but you can drink a wonderful cappuccino while you’re at it.

This map of Antigo, Wisconsin came with a theme: old hollywood. The couple will be decking out their reception site to surprise and delight guests with their theme and wanted to work it  into their map. Once again, the wedding site and reception were too far from each other to do an entirely elevated map so agreed on a mix of elevated and flat map. On the back of the map are written directions and extra instructions.
