Chris and Shannon’s Autumn & Acorn invitation design
When Shannon approached my about designing her wedding invitations for their fall-time Massachusetts wedding on 10-10-10, I was so excited! You must check out their wedding photos, everything was so beautiful! Shannon and Chris wanted to incorporated that autumn feeling into their wedding by basing the design around an acorn – a symbol of good luck! The wedding venue was The Fruitlands Museum which celebrates the native people of Massachusetts. When I sat down to design them, sort of a folk-art feel began to emerge in the design and it worked perfectly!
Here is the invitation front and back.

Here you can really see the acorn-infused folk art pattern I designed to use throughout the invitation suite. I isolated one of the acorn groupings for them to use as sort of a monogram.
Chris and Shannon decided to go with the wraparound address labels which are super-easy to print at home and look great.
The ever popular RSVP postcard — saves on stamps and envelopes!
Finally, the full suite: Invitation, envelopes with wraparound address labels, RSVP postcard, and information card. All pieces were printed on an extra heavy linen card stock that went perfectly with the design. Love it!
