Happy anniversary, sis.

It's been one {short} year and a couple weeks since my sister and her husband married in beautiful Sonoma, California.  The ceremony took place in Kenwood, on a flagstone altar overlooking a vineyard- truly a perfect setting.  They entrusted me to design and print their wedding stationery, and naturally I had to go a little crazy with the invitation suite (that's what sisters are for).  To give it an extra-special-something, I hand-drew their monogram, calligraphed their names and a few other elements, and then took it up a notch with silver foil stamping on the invite, reception card and belly band.  The invitation card itself is letterpress printed with two shades of green in addition to the foil stamp.

From top to bottom: the invitation, my very lovely sister and her dapper husband, the altar, view of the vineyard behind the altar, the couple and groomsmen, tear drop vase with mini rose (had to post this one, since I hung these bad boys myself).

Happy anniversary, Marina and Jonathan.  I love you!
