The Project

Sitting in the center of San Francisco is a beautiful park filled with a mix of redwoods and eucalyptus trees, named Sigmund Stern Grove. After 4 failed attempts to reserve the site, we finally had confirmation and a date. Shortly thereafter, I started brainstorming concepts around an outdoor cereemony.

You’re Invited

The schedule was printed on the last segment of the foldable invite, which could be torn off and used during the weekend. 

Save the Date Mailer

I wanted to put together a mailer that was postcard sized, affordable to print, and something that I could get out the door quickly. I designed a traditional 8.25" x 4.25" postcard that utilized a custom hand-drawn typeface for the front. On the back, I used Gabriela Stencil from the foundry Latino Type. In hindsight, I may have used just one font family here, but I was still settling in on the direction of the piece and needed to get this out quickly.

Wedding Invitation

I wanted to carry through some of the elements from the save-the-date postcard, and fully settled in on using the same font family and created new illustrations. While the wedding would be around the 100 person mark, I wanted to create an invite to get people excited to visit the city itself. Most of the illustrations are centered around the city and surrounding areas.

Before starting the design, I found the perfect stepped accordion fold that I wanted to use, from Fold Factory. They do all the printing as well as the scoring, which reduced a ton of work for me. Now I just had to design the thing!

The Website

I knew that I wanted to avoid using a templated site for our wedding. Part of that was ego, and wanting full control over the experience. I also wanted to build out a site using Jekyll—a static site generator—for the first time, so I knew that it would load fast without having to depend on a CMS.

The website was hand-coded using Jekyll, with the intent to load quickly as well as being mobile friendly for guests.
