One of my favorite watercolor suites from the summer was featured on Vogue.com this past week for Sophie Elgort and Eric Von Stroh's gorgeous Southampton wedding! When designing Sophie's invitations we began with that bright, beautiful blue color inspired by a photo her father (photographer, Arthor Elgort) took of the sunset. I drew the blue from the tones of the sky and also incorporated the local flowers they would be using; sunflowers, hydrangeas, and pink peonies. All designing was originally done in watercolor. We created a formal suite, escort cards with little envelopes, table numbers (that were names of special places), menus that double over as place cards, and welcome bags with an info card of the Elgort family's favorite southampton spots! I am still beyond excited to learn of the mention and read what Sophie had to say about all the details of her wedding. In the article, you can read more about their sweet day at her family's home in Southampton.
