Yesterday I debuted Joo and Jacob's California wedding. And as promised, I've got some fun sketches from their stationer and event designer to share today.
Joo gave Erin, of The Indigo Bunting, some photos of herself and Jacob, the venue and its greenery, and some inspiration. This helped Erin with the designs. In this gallery you can see Erin's sketchbook, some very rough sketches of the preliminary design options, and all the final pieces.

7 The actual front side.
Joo sent Erin information about how she and Jacob would be dressed on the wedding day, so the illustration would be accurate.

Joo and Kelly (from Yes, Please Design) initially started chatting about a dessert bar, because in addition to being an event designer, Kelly also makes cute (and yummy) cupcakes. Here are some of Kelly's sketches of the dessert/candy bar, photobooth backdrop, table numbers, escort cards, and pom pom toss.

3 A sketch of the scallops of fabrics that would overlap to create the photobooth backdrop.

5 Kelly took a photo of the Smog Shoppe's interior wall and drew over it to show how the escort cards would be displayed.
