When Stephanie Weber and Melissa Fe Chapman reached out to me about working on an Alice in Wonderland styled shoot, I enthusiastically responded, "YES!!" I love all things Disney so when I get to combine that passion with my love of paper and design, I just get giddy! The mood board for the shoot was primarily a garden wedding, so I while I designed the invite, I thought about ways to make the invitation classy like a garden wedding but whimsical for Alice's topsy turvy world. I wrapped the invite in a sheet of vellum printed with vines, but with a unique cut for that touch of whimsy, but my favorite part was the wax seal, impressed with a key! These elements combined to give that "through the looking glass" feel as you enter into Wonderland. Once the guest opened up their invitation, they were greeted with a simple invite with draping vines. A pop of color was added through the blush pink envelope and large handpainted flowers! My next project was creating matching vow books and a quote from Alice: Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures. Alright!
