Astrid is my high school friend who lives in the United States, but was getting married in Indonesia, our home land.
It was a special project for me, because I met her fiancé, Ronald, back in Indonesia during our vacation 2 years ago. I adore their chemistry, just like love birds I would say. Astrid mentioned that she loves the bird idea and I just had to apply it carefully from being too cutesy. Okay, I admit, Astrid’s idea on having the female and male birds on the cover, is a cute detail! (look at the bow on the female bird =))
Her bubbly personality matches well with the design. Their theme was inspired by nature while keeping the elegant aspect in check. That is why I put blind embossing of the leaves on the cover to keep it as subtle as possible. Giving a little touch of gold is the best decision to add that elegant and chic look.
These love birds invitations went out to 600 addresses. That’s right, so far this project was the biggest order we had! Indonesian weddings are usually bigger than any other weddings. Having 1000 guests are standard. It is a big deal for both families.
Unfortunately, Richard and I couldn’t make it to their wedding in Jakarta. I can’t wait to see their wedding detail shots on how this nature theme comes to life.
Congrats again to Astrid and Ronald, have a happy marriage!
