Wedding Logo Ideas

Wow, three months have flown by and I’m finally getting around to posting some of the logo ideas I sent out for a wedding I had the chance to work on back in August of this year! The bride & groom agreed on the more whimsical, delicate monogrammed version of their “j”‘s tying the knot.. and I loved how it turned out laser engraved on basswood!

Custom Laser Engraved Wedding Invitations

A bit late with this post, but this is what I’ve been up to the past few months, a new product featuring delicate, beautifully laser engraved wedding invitations on thin cut basswood.

Tying the Knot Wedding invitation
The strokes of “J & J”, initials for Jessica and Jonathon are followed by strands of hearts symbolizing the lasting and trailing love of the bride & groom to be. The strands of hearts were designed with wedding cans in mind, similar to the idea of having strings of cans tied to the newlyweds’ car, announcing to the surrounding neighborhood of their recent nuptials.

Tying the Knot Wedding RSVP card
Keeping the theme of trailing hearts, Jessica wanted a modern rsvp card to match her basswood engraved invitations. Teal, ivory and orange with a grey typeface suited her color palette and of course, custom icons (pig, fish and carrot) graphics for each entree selection.

Under the Oak Tree Wedding Invitation
This design features intricately designed lines that make up the trunk of an oak tree with the bride and groom’s initials carved in a heart to add that extra touch of personalization. Perfect for any outdoor summer wedding!

Lovebirds Sitting on a Tree
Imagine giving each of your invitees a glimpse of the outdoor scene you’ll have at your wedding while leaves are falling and two little lovebirds sit on a tree together. Great for any outdoor wedding that would like matching, custom invitations to wow your guests with. Personalize your invitation with you and your fiancee’s initials at bottom of the “tree trunk”

What’s a birthday if you don’t have matching treats to celebrate the occasion? Courtesy of Sibby’s Cupcakery in San Mateo, California- they did an awesome job decorating these mini cupcakes (and a jumbo one especially for Branden) with our little robot head. Yum!!
