Jenny's invitations were a sort of deja vü meets twilight zone for me. Not only did Jenny get married at the same venue as I, The Bulle Rock Golf Course, but she also got married at the same church and time. Jenny lives in Seattle so we worked completely by email, which worked out great. She choose Regency from the collection for her invitations with a color palette of golds, champagnes and a dusty rose which I can only imagined looked stunning with look and feel of Bulle Rock.

Allison and Dan are a Baltimore couple who got married in their home state of Florida with a ceremony on the beach this past December. Allison choose the design from my own wedding invitations with a color palette of red and black (a vast departure from my hot pink and orange color palette) including an illustrated wedding timeline. I had had the opportunity to design their ceremony and reception items. Since they had a very intimate wedding, we could really personalize her pieces. Instead of place cards, we used a belly band that wrapped around each menu card with each guest's name adding a more personal touch.

This most recent invitation design encompasses a vintage and modern look, perfect for the bride looking to combine all into one. The artwork is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau movement in Paris while still creating a nod to a more modern flair with clean lines and white space. I am currently designing this invitation for a bridal client in pewter and a smoky lavender which looks beautiful with the subtle color palette.

Welcome all to the blog. After many months of toying with the idea of starting a blog, I decided to throw caution to the wind and jump right in. Blogging for designers serves as a great way to showcase more of their current work without the constant update of the website. While my website has about 65% of what is in the collection, this will be a great way to show you more of the work Just Ink On Paper is producing.
My goal is to post once a week and provide some information and "eye-candy" for those who read. Not only will I showcase some current work, but I will also have a "Real Weddings" feature of past clients wedding photos, and possibly some tips and vendor spotlights.
