When Whitney of Brown Sugar Designs and her client Sacha contacted me to collaborate on a map for her Save the Date set I could not have been more excited. The save the dates had a specific green and gold color pallette and I made sure to put plenty of those colors into the map.

The wedding is taking place near their home in Seattle, so I made sure to incorporate the Space Needle, and of course a ferry boat in the bay.

Sacha and Will used baby photos on their save the dates as a cute way to show where they came from. Genuine Swarovski crystals were painstakingly adhered to mark the date on the cards. What a wonderful idea!The maps were made into magnets with gold backers on them so that the guests could stick them on their refrigerators — and who wouldn’t want to!?

Sacha, it was such a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to doing the rest of your wedding calligraphy next year!
