Jessica + Matthew {fall wedding}

Jessica and Matthew were the sweetest couple to work with, they loved everything I made for them first time around! Talk about dream clients. Their wedding is this October to held at a beautiful camp site, followed by a more traditional reception. They wanted something simple, inviting and deep purple! My favorite part was working on the map, and all the hand illustrated details. The invite was letterpress printed and the other pieces full color. The stamp is going to be used for fun little tags, favor bags, and whatever else they want to stamp!
