Audrey & Steve: Rabbit and Pig Fairytale Inspired Invitation

When Audrey first approached me with her idea of creating an invitation based on her and Steve's Chinese zodiac characters, we both knew right off the bat that I was the right designer for the challenge! I was so excited of her whimsical vision and immediately had the perfect illustrator in mind for the job. I called up my long time friend and super talented artist Corey Peters. He created the most delightful characters based on playful stories and activities that Audrey and Steve share together. We then continued to design all the graphics from the wedding- making sure every detail fit Audrey's vision perfectly.

Check out the rest of the wedding details from Bride and Bloom's Spring/Summer 2011 issue!
