Sierra & David’s Wedding Invitation

Sierra and David are a very eclectic, non-traditional couple, so the last thing they wanted was a traditional invitation. After meeting with them, we decided that a retro/vintage route best captured the essence of both of them. Since the wedding was taking place outdoors, I immediately thought of Aaron Draplin’s Field Notes as a great vehicle for the invitation (and it just so happened that David is an avid Draplin/Field Notes fan). Through illustrations and mementos, presented in a faux Field Notes booklet, we invite friends and family in a unique and compelling way. And to bring in some of Sierra’s personality, playing o her love of books (as well sas her occupation as a teacher), I made the RSVP card mimic a library check-out card and the website info card resembles a vintage library borrow card. All of this, sealed in a retro “air mail” envelope, makes this invite a memorable start to a lifelong union.

“Out of all of our wedding vendors, Christopher Lyons was by far the most creative and flexible we worked with. He took our style and turned it into the design of our dreams. After the invitations went out, we received a steady flow of compliments from family and friends—everyone was blown away.
