When Samantha, owner of Samantha Louise Moments, asked me to design an engagement announcement for a styled shoot she was planning, I was pretty excited. She knew the retro-modern vibe would be right up my alley. I pine for pastels. I pine for the hint of mid-century style, and I definitely pine over the guy in the photos, because he, ladies and gents, is my dashing fiance.
THEN she asked me if I would like to be IN the shoot that my dreams are made of…
well I really can’t tell you what happened after that, because I suffered from an excitement induced blackout.
Me? A model?! I’m counting my lucky stars with this one! We will forever treasure the memories Taylor Abeel captured on that incredible day.
For this engagement announcement, I wanted to match the pastels that would be represented in our attire, the cakes, and decor. I had this really funky screen-printed gift wrap sheet that I knew would make a great liner. I paired it with a mint envelope, and matched the ink colors of the invitation to the liner. Simple and sweet was the name of the game. Enjoy these sneak peeks, Will share more with you soon!
