When Katie asked me to do the wedding save the dates and invitations for her Peaks Island Wedding, I was honored! Katie was an art teacher at my alma mater, Kennebunk High, and I was thrilled to be asked by such a creative person to be a special part of their wedding day!
All of Katie's designs were totally custom. We started with a map save the date...my very first! Then Katie came up with the idea for an invitation with a rope border nautical design and a compass rose on the reply card. There was a little painting of the Inn on Peaks Island on the enclosure card, and a schooner on the outer envelope.
We did a number of other pieces too! Her mother in law had me do a whimsical portrait of the couple that was later used as a groom's cake topper and a surprise for Brock! There was a hand painted postcard for certain lucky guests for a sunset cruise the night before the wedding.
The couple had me create a watercolor painting of their church to be used on the front of a program. The wedding reception pieces all stayed with the rugged Maine coastline theme....with a few hydrangeas thrown in to pull in Katie's wedding colors. Of course I loved the seating chart the most! All of the tables were named after the Casco Bay Islands. Brock is a merchant marine, so the sea is important to them both.
I so enjoyed working with this lovely couple! They now have 3 beautiful children and I hear from Katie from time to time for other projects! All the best, Katie and Brock! Thank you for letting me be part of your wedding day (and life!).
