I designed this brochure in PAGES, which is a Mac program. It was so easy to make!

Here is the front of the brochure that gives a little welcome blurb:

Here is the inside of the brochure. I used photoshop to add details to maps I downloaded off of google maps.

Chris and I listed our favorite bars, restaurants, and things to do in the Pacific Beach and Mission Beach area where most of guests will be staying:

We also added some information about Mission Bay and areas of interest in the greater San Diego region:

welcome card

Here are the welcome cards for the out of town bags.

I scanned a card I bought with this Vintage San Diego illustration. I used photoshop to add in our names at the bottom.

Then I just wrote a simple welcome paragraph and highlighted some of the weekend events:

I bought 100 of these butter cards before paper source discontinued them a year ago. I know, I plan waaaay too far in advance.

But there is something so perfect about the color that cannot be found in any other yellow paper I come across!

Anyways, here are the menu cards. I used the same font and lines as the invitations, as well as that darn milk bottle that keeps showing up everywhere.

Here is the menu:

On the back, I printed walking directions to the after party. I edited the map in photoshop before I put it all together in illustrator.

wedding programs

Okay, I have been working long and hard on designing and printing all the stinkin stationary for the wedding.

I'll start off with these programs.

So at first I had this elaborate design for them, but then my friends reminded me that people just throw them away after the they advised me to not put forth that much effort.

Hmm..okay. Well, if you know me, you know that I love to draw people. So I decided it would be fun if I drew out the program.

First I drew a picture of me and Chris on the front. Yes, Chris is wearing is dress blues (can you tell?) and there you have a sneak peek of my dress (yes it's short..and sexay!)

Then I drew the heads of all the people in the bridal party. I think they look like each of them, but some might disagree...(Vince has hair??)

The actual order of events is a design in my original program. The tree and tandem bike were items I was going to use in the invitation, but then I took it out. I drew these on illustrator.

So I scanned in my pencil drawings and then finished putting it all together in illustrator. I love it and I hope it makes people smile and laugh and my silliness.
