A Slide In My House?

Yes please! I was pretty jealous that this really exists.

A Magical Wedding Invitation

Our good friends Simon, an ice cream loving poker-playing magician (yes, magician) and Joni, a lovely songbird, recently tied the knot. I wanted to share with you their wedding invitation because of the *buzz word* whimsicalness of it. And really, that's the only word that could describe it. With one of the best ceremony soundtracks to date, it was wonderful seeing these two start their lives together.

Remember Deny? He designed these wedding invitations for them. The first part was their faces on the royals intended to be playing cards. These were offset in two colors so they came out very vibrant.

Deny is a big typography buff and it shows in his work. Working with multiple fonts is difficult and has to be done with finesse. You can't just throw a bunch of random fonts together and pray that it looks cohesive. He's making the magician theme work and it isn't coming off too cheesy either.

I was also a huge fan of the unique Playbill style wedding program. In essence, Joni and Simon are very much performers so it was only fitting to do a Playbill style wedding program. What I really enjoyed was the overall concept of the Acts and verbiage that was carefully thought out. If you zoom in, you'll see what I mean.

Now for some visuals from Vivid Delight Photography! Guests were treated to Treatbot: a karaoke ice cream truck local to the bay area. Since Simon loves ice cream and Joni is a singer, this was an entertaining combination. Our friend Mary was super excited for it :)
