Getting with the program
It was a busy wedding season – not just with invitations, but with programs as well! My creative juices were revved up making a unique mix of programs, from die-cut heart shapes to letterpress on paper bags (my personal favorite).
The die-cut heart idea was brought to me by bride, Jane – and was actually my first die-cut job (which of course led to many other projects) Oh! what you can do with die-cutting! So, hats off to Jane for bringing this to the table. They turned out so elegant. A few shots are from the photographer at their wedding who also captured some other signage (Seating Assignments, Favor Cards) I created for Jane.

July hit and Amy’s wedding was just days away. I created Amy’s three color invitations a few months earlier (see here)…and she wanted a simple program to match. July in Portland can be toasty-warm, and so flat-printed fan style programs were the solution, tied with yellow thatch-ribbon and secured to a popsicle stick.
And finally, lovely Fin’s apple/pear orchard wedding brought the season to a beautiful close at the end of September. Keeping the same look from her apple crate-inspired wedding invitations, I crafted letterpress programs printed onto paper bags. Guests were asked to hold onto their bag after the ceremony, as their gift, was to fill their bag with pears from the farm near Mt. Hood, Oregon. Here are a couple of my own photos and one from the day of photographer – Thanks to Will Keeler Photographer.
