J+J Wedding

Jessica + Jeffrey  |  The Wedding

Jessica and Jeffrey's wedding ceremony and reception was held at Camarillo Ranch in Camarillo California. The outdoor wedding was held in the gardens outside the Queen Anne style home built in 1892. The weather was perfect for a garden wedding.

I was told by the bride that she would like the barn to be included on the invitation. Their reception was to be held in the barn. She liked the paper bag color and I thought it would be a nice color for this elegant and rustic wedding.

In addition to drawing the barn, I also created a hand drawn heart with their initials. I wanted it to have the feel of a heart with J+J carved in the wood on the barn. These two illustrations really personalized the invitation and other elements. In addition to the invitation and reply card, I also designed the program that was fashioned into a fan and recipe cards that they asked the guests to fill out at the reception. They were Recipe For A Good Marriage cards

The wedding was beautiful and the decor for the wedding and reception was lovely.
