Two hearts have wed


My dear friend Catherine braved the perils of Illustrator to create this gorgeous wedding celebration invitation. Not a designer by trade, we talked about some details together, but she mastered it entirely on her own. Commissioning the sacred heart artwork from Corrina Orrico, they reworked it a couple times, and I love how the sacred heart has a design within it. On it's reverse, the enlarged design in the top corner creates a sense of drama while the lettering keeps it stately and composed. The two hearts in the corner are sweet but not overly so. There's a feel of the handmade but also of high elegance. Catherine used a cheerful font for their names which I adore, Tagettes, and which Catherine says reminds her of a sixteenth century Spanish script.
