I stumbled across these whimsical + fun wedding invitations by illustrator Mike Casebolt a few days ago and was totally smitten! They are the wedding invitations for Summer + Seth who are planning a wedding in the mountains of Bryson City, NC this coming May. Summer + Seth both live in Orlando, FL but discovered after dating that both of their families had been vacationing within 20 miles of each other since they were about 8 years old. So when they thought about were they wanted to get married, they were both naturally drawn to the mountains of NC. Summer is graphic designer and part time wedding planner, so I can’t wait to see what she dreams up for her day.
A few more details about their invites:
Summer + Seth worked with Mike Casebolt to create their fun invitations. They knew they wanted a dark forest on the outside and then to open it up and see a warm, glowing party come alive on the inside. :)
From Summer, “We met with Mike and told him that we would love to see people dancing with animal heads around a fire, lots of forest creatures, mushrooms, wilderness, etc. I knew I wanted a pocket on each side that originally I was going to actually sew on <– ridiculous. Luckily our printer, Mama’s Sauce suggested we do a die cut for the pocket and glue them on. Ok fine, no sewing. When Mike showed the invite to us for the first time I really, truly thought I’d fall out of my chair! I know many other girls that would be fine with an evite for their wedding. Whoa, not me! I’m a super duper design nerd, but felt too much pressure to design my own. I’m SO happy I asked mike to illustrate them… I still can’t believe how cute and how “us” they are. We were having a very budget friendly 2 day wedding in the forest….it needed the perfect vibe.
We look forward to sharing Summer + Seth’s wedding day here on GWS in June. :)
