2009 real wedding :: christina and mike


We first met Christina and Mike in January 2009 at the Seattle Wedding Show. They were planning an elegant East Coast wedding for the fall, and immediately fell for the “two trees” custom invitation suite on display that we created for Lindsey and Phillip in 2008. We worked closely with Christina to create an invitation suite that reflected their own personal style using that imagery.


Using a color palette of autumn yellow and deep gray with bursts of metallic silver, we created an offset invitation suite that consisted of a panel-style invitation, rsvp cards, directions cards, and rehearsal dinner invitations. For their wedding day, we created programs, table cards (each named after a different variety of tree), escort cards, and favor tags. The trees motif carried throughout the wedding day, from a reading of “Two Trees” by Janet Miles at the ceremony to the “Tree in a Box” favors given out at the reception. Christina and Mike were kind enough to share these photos from their event, courtesy of Paired Images Photography.
