I remember seeing Holly’s work a few months ago and I’m so excited that she is sharing some of her favorite invitations with us today! I love her unique illustrations of the bride and groom. Holly Hatam is the Founder and Creative Director of TearDrop. She is an accomplished graphic designer and well known in the wedding industry as “the girl with very unique, whimsical designs.” Holly started creating invitations when her friend Melissa pleaded with her to design her wedding invitations. The response Holly got from her design brought a warm fuzzy feeling in her tummy…and from that day on she constantly had a craving for paper!
When designing her invitations, Holly thinks of the “real” bride and groom and transforms a blank sheet of paper into an original piece of artwork that tells a love story of very original couple. She wants each of her designs to uniquely capture each couple. “We believe that a wedding is a time of joy, and that is the feeling we want our designs to evoke. We want guests to open their invitation and say “oh ya, this is totally Amy and Brian” We think of our designs as little pieces of artwork, that your guests will want to cherish forever.”
She can change the hair and facial features of the characters to look like the bride and groom, for a more personalized, custom look :) Brides can also change the type of font, color, and wording. She offers both letterpress and digital printing. View more of her work on her site – TearDrop Weddings. Thanks so much for sharing these Holly!
