Alexandra and Shawn’s Garden Wedding
May 20, 2010
The other weekend one of my dearest friends, Alexandra, got married. It was the most beautiful, romantic wedding I have ever seen; ceremony in a garden under a tree, dinner at long, family style tables in the grass and dancing under the stars. It was perfection. We danced our feet off, laughed till it hurt and celebrated into the night. I even did the worm on the dance floor! (It is one of my secret talents and I am actually pretty killer at it :))
I designed the invitations as my wedding gift, using warm grays and a sanserif font to reflect the relaxed, garden wedding.
Shawn and Alexandra love to bike so I drew a bicycle built for two as their reply card, and I just love the font I found for their computerized calligraphy.
The wedding was held at the groom’s childhood home in Los Altos Hill, CA in the beautiful garden and barn. It felt like a movie, and a shot a million photos trying to capture it all.
Continuing with the bicycle theme.
The dinner was delicious. I think I ate my body weight in the polenta.
As night fell the dancing began.
Then it was time to send the happy couple off into the night. Sigh.
Best wishes Alexandra and Shawn. xoxo
