I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I LOVE it when creatives design their own wedding invites! This beautiful wedding invitation suite popped up in my inbox recently, and it was crush at first sight. Featuring photos by Jose Villa and design by James Prunean (aka, the groom), the suite has such a dreamy, romantic look and is perfect for Diana and James’ upcoming California wedding celebration.
The couple, James (a stationery designer) and Diana (a film photographer), met on Twitter when he followed her and complimented her on a feature she had on a wedding blog. James was instantly drawn to Diana’s talent. It took a little time, but Diana eventually responded and thanked him, he followed up with a direct message, and the rest is history. Seeing as James is from Ontario, Canada and Diana is from California, the couple didn’t know where they should have their wedding. The bride wanted something close to her, and the groom wanted something close to him, but they both settled on a destination wedding in Los Gatos, California.
James shares about the design process:
Triangles and diamonds and polygons – oh, yeah! Straightforward geometric shapes bring a fresh, modern feel to all that they embellish, and this white hot stationery trend is one that I’ve been watching with delight. I love what designers are doing with simple angles and shapes, and modern-minded brides and grooms-to-be will want to check out this crushtastic geometric invitation eye candy:

Rubber stamps bring a handmade touch to any piece of paper they touch, and they’re a simple way to add beautiful details to wedding invitations, save the dates, and especially envelopes, where they really shine. You can go small and add a small flourish or heart to the flap of your envelopes, or you can go big and create do-it-yourself invitations and save the dates with custom stamps featuring gorgeous calligraphy and type. The versatility of a rubber stamp gives you so much freedom and flexibility that the possibilities are practically endless!
