There is just something so romantic about a mountain wedding, especially when it takes place at a beautiful remote location. I had never heard about Devils Thumb Ranch until Liz told me this was the destination of her and Jyace’s April wedding. Of course I googled, and my jaw dropped. It is stunning. And I knew right away when Liz started explaining her wedding vision that this was going to be a fun invitation to design. She was sure of what she wanted, but open to ideas at the same time. Each round of design proofs came back with the most detailed revisions, but always left the designing up to me. What a dream! 🙂
I had so much fun working with Liz and Jyace at every milestone. I truly feel like we were so dialed in with the Save the Date that the rest was easy peasy. During the brainstorming stage of my design process, the first thing I do is go to the couples Pinterest board, or view inspiration images they’ve provided. The best thing about Liz’s inspiration is that she noted on each and every photo exactly what it was she loved about it. A font here, graphic there, wording preferences. You name it, she covered it. It left little room for interpretation and I was able to really focus on the design aspect. I’m seriously so lucky to work with the best brides!
It was clear from the beginning that Liz wanted to use vintage postage. YAY! Prior to her request, I hadn’t dabbled in this particular detail so I wasn’t sure exactly how it would work. There is a whole world of postage out there I had no idea about! Liz actually took the lead by making final decisions and taking care of the ordering, but it gave me a really good glimpse into the process for future clients.

My favorite part about this invitation design suite is that it really captures the mountain wedding vibe. From the shade of green and antler graphic to the rustic envelope. “The mountains are calling, and I must go.” I love this quote, and I kind of wish I would have crashed this wedding. I don’t think I would have regretted it one bit. Admittedly, I’m a ball gown wedding dress girl myself, but this one just may have changed my mind. That and the stunning reception decor have all of my heart eyes….
Thanks so much for reading! I set a blog post schedule awhile back and I’m doing a horrible job at sticking to it. I promise I’m trying to be a little more consistent (without making myself crazy!). xoxo, KM
