Wedding Wednesday

This week for Wedding Wednesday I wanted to share something really fun that we had made by the very talented Hanna Nation of Gadabout. If you aren't familiar with Hanna's work... get familiar! I am obsessed. Her stylish illustrations and gorgeous graphic design had me at hello. I mean, just look at her homepage


So I reached out to Hanna asking her to create a custom illustration of Spencer, Maverick and me. This was the only reference I provided


 
 I gave her specifics of what I wanted us to wear and this beauty is what I got in my inbox

My jaw was on the floor, totally obsessed. Immediately my mind went crazy over the possibilities of this adorable illustration. Frame it and print it on everything I can get my hands on.

 So first step was printing it onto stationary for our shower thank you notes. I sent them out, and seriously got emails from half of the recipients asking where they came from!

Any other ideas? I am thinking welcome bags....

  14. OMG swoon worthy idea!!! That is the cutest illustration!! Thank you cards are perfect, I would also make a small one and put it on stationary!

  15. I love the way this charming little illustration strikes the perfect balance between being obviously personalized, without being overly obnoxious. You know those invites you get that have the couples pictures plastered ALL over them? It's a little much sometimes. This is just perfect because of course it's you guys, but it's also just a lovely little illustration simultaneously! No one could get sick of that charmer. ;)
