Portia & Chris

Portia is a dear friend of mine that got engaged around the same time as I did. Being the awesome friend I am, I offered to design her save the dates for her and her fiancé.  

There wasn't any challenge here, thanks to Pinterest there's a ton of inspiration out there. Portia and Chris are having a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic. Out of which, I sent her the follow examples (found on various posts on Pinterest)  :


Luckily for me, the couple wasn't indecisive. They agreed to go with the "Pack Your Bags" concept. With any design, I strive to make it unique even when referencing existing work. I wanted to put some personality in the wording and the couple loved it. 

I also added some dimension with layering the background layers over the suitcase. As a finishing touch I added a luggage tag with the couple's initials.  


And lastly, to keep the travel theme going and saving a few extra bucks, we decided to  making this design into a postcard. 

Special thanks to Portia & Chris for letting me be part of their wedding journey. Congratulations to you both!
