CHUCK + NIKI

The original "one-piece poster invite" for my marriage.  We wanted to design something unique for our wedding invites, so I designed a poster for the front of the invite and she designed a graphic novel that told our story on the back. It came with a tear-away map and R.S.V.P. and was accompanied by a website using the same colors... We also designed the programs, color-scheme, identity, a projected motion graphics piece (a sample of which will be coming soon) and the thank you cards using the same scheme.

The graphic-novel side that tells our story and indicated what will occur on the wedding day.

The same reddish/orange and green over grey and white color scheme was used in the flowers and tuxedos. The color added warmth to the wintery backdrop since the wedding was held in Minnesota in January. These are our nieces and nephew.

The website with links to the days events, hotel and registry. The buildings were architecturally significant, the church in South Minneapolis was the last project by both Eliel and Eero Saarinen, and the reception site at the Weisman was designed by Frank Gehry. The Weisman is also on the University of Minnesota campus where we met.
