Trevor & I decided that we had to share our invitations with you! We simply love love love the way they turned out...
As two passionate photographers we decided to try to turn our mutual obsession with photography into a theme. Since both Trevor & I enjoy shooting film on the side for personal projects it seemed only natural that we integrate this somehow into our day. (apart from actually supplying our photographers with film for their cameras of course!)
The result is a collaboration between Trevor & I and an invitation that took an assembly line of 5 to create. We had to make about 40 after all was said and done and I was lucky enough to have the help of my ladies and a little bit of wine! (Thanks girls!) It was tons of fun and completely worth it...
Guests received their invite in the mail, wrapped in brown paper & ribbon:

Pulling the 'film' out revealed all the details guests needed about the day:
The guests seemed to love them and I thought we'd share our little DIY. A little something different, and a great precursor to our vintage camera themed day!
Hilariously, these invitations have gone completely viral - we've received emails from all over the world asking for more information and checking to see if we'd create the same invitations for their weddings! We love that others have appreciated them as much as we did... for more photos and info on our wedding, please click here.
Due to the influx of interest and the busy time of year, we will not be offering to create these invites for others, but you're welcome to tackle the project on your own and send us a few images of how they turned out!
