For our photo shoot invitations we really wanted to showcase the dreamy surroundings of our Temecula venue. The photographs by the fabulously talented Miss Ashley Kelemen of the luscious rolling hills were the perfect backdrop for our suite and I imagine that guests would be so excited knowing they were headed to such a beautiful setting after spying these stunning views.
This was quite an easy project and one that would be so simple to recreate for your own wedding if you have a camera and an itsy bitsy bit of design know-how. Give your guests a glimpse of what they can expect at your upcoming nuptials with a snapshot of your beautiful wedding venue or the city where it will be held. A city skyline or a beach at sunset can set the tone for a fun, destination wedding! We used photos for both the Save-the-Date postcard and RSVP card with the invitation.
Take a good camera along to one of your venue visits and keep your eye open for either a great view or perfect detail. The key is to make sure there is a good amount of space – as in the sky in our photos – to put your text. If your photographer is coming along for a site visit anyway maybe they’ll snap a photo or two for you!
Once you get your photos home just upload them into your preferred design software program. Photoshop or something fancy like that is good but you can even use something simple and user-friendly.
Find a pretty font…there are plenty of great free options out there. I used Jellyka Delicious Cake. I love the look of the white text against the romantic, Wuthering Heights-esque sky.
Print it on the front-side of your Save-the-Date, Invitation or RSVP Card. See…easy peasy!
