WEDDINGS

It has been a lot of fun to design print and pottery work for the weddings of several of my friends over the last few years. I’ve learned a lot about timelines, communication, and how to really get to the heart of what couples want for a special day.

Nichole + Eric

Designing the invitations, program, and favors for my sister Nichole’s wedding to her hipster partner-in-crime Eric was a lot of fun. They both are musicians, so the theme was easy, and Nichole was fabulous with offering feedback so we could get the designs just right. I loved seeing guests walk away from the reception with several blue pots each – and in the years since, I see these pots on shelves and in use whenever I visit friends and family.

Nicole + Chad

For their wedding, Nicole and Chad requested favors with a very personal touch.

Both of them work with language as their medium, so the couple hand-wrote quotes that were meaningful to them. We worked together to affix these quotes as decals to 150+ bottles created for the reception. The bottles were fired three times in total to seal the text permanently.

The wedding was on the hottest day of the summer in a Quaker meetinghouse, so guests were definitely eager to get to the air-conditioned reception! Each guest left with a bottle as a favor that will keep the memory alive for thousands of years.

Heather + John

For my college friend Heather’s wedding, I created a program and cup favors for the reception. The couple found each other through shared work in film production and a mutual love of music, so the program, designed like a script and score, reflected their passions.

There wasn’t anything too fancy about the porcelain tumblers, but wedding guests were able to use them for refills at the bar!

Ann + Gabe

Ann and Gabe wanted a wedding program that reflected their mutual love of the outdoors, and especially of the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. The front page illustration is hand-drawn, with selected quotes from the couple. They loved my design of Gabe’s CD, so I tried to carry some of that style into the program. This was a joy to design and produce.
