Jennie and Shane are a fabulous couple from our church, Mesa First. Jennie is this beautiful girl with a killer voice (she actually sang at my wedding, almost 4 years ago!) and Shane is a cool dude who leads a small group for us at Transit* and loves the Phoenix Suns.
When Jennie asked me to design her STD’s (haha that’s kind of funny) she gave me a copy of her wedding invites and a ribbon that was dark purple. The invites had some cute swirly floral designs on them so I decided to carry that same feel over in the Save the Dates. She also gave me quite a few pictures to choose from taken by my good friend, Melissa Kossack. I absolutely LOVE the picture I used. I did a few minor shading effects (using the burn & dodge tools in Photoshop CS3) to really make them “pop” from the background. I also de-saturated the picture and played with the color on Shane’s shirt to match the ribbon she gave me. I love the finished product and I know they were very pleased.
Congrats Shane and Jennie! Thank you for your friendship. Praying God’s blessings on your future together.
