Monika and her husband eloped while he was in the Army. They didn't have the time to put together a wedding, they just knew they wanted to be married while he was serving. Mark is returning home and they FINALLY get to have the wedding they've wanted so badly.
With all of the traveling Mark has done over the past couple of years, Monika thought it would be perfect to have the save-the-dates resemble a vintage postcard. They wanted the card to show their journey to this special day as well as honor their family and friends. The save-the-date is comprised of the main card as well as an accommodations card as they want their guests to be able to book the hotel as soon as possible since summers in Ogunquit, ME are very busy.
The front of the save-the-date has important dates and events in their relationship. When they met, got engaged, joined the Army, eloped and now, they're renewal. On the reverse side, Monika & Mark chose to write a personal note to their family and friends as though it were a real postcard. I created some additional stamp imagery from places that mean something to the couple to complete the look.
These were really fun to work on and I am excited to start on their invitation suite!
