Hello all! We’ve had a busy start to the Spring and have taken a bit of a blogging break, but now we’re back with lots of new and exciting stuff coming down the pipe! The first one we’d love to share with you is the Save the Date film we created for Erin & Travis.
Erin and Travis are a dynamic and energetic couple who currently reside in San Francisco, CA but will be relocating and getting married in their former hometown of Miami. This incredibly well-traveled duo has been everywhere and seen it all (seriously, their invite list pretty much covers every continent in the world!), but their fondest memories are of spending lazy Sundays in Coconut Grove, taking sailing lessons and enjoying delicious meals at Michael’s Genuine. For that reason, they decided to pick the beautiful Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for their wedding and wanted a unique and creative way to hype up their guests from around the globe to make the trip to Miami for their wedding.
We decided combine their love of Miami, along with Travis’ love of photography and some inspiration from Anthony Bourdain’s show The Layover: Miami to show their guests what they have to look forward to in October. This included Erin, Travis and their dog, Jack visiting the famous Miami juice stand, Palacio de Los Jugos, South Beach, sailing by Stiltsville and Vizcaya, and finally a trip to Cheeca Lodge, which has special significance to the couple. Then, while working in California last month, we were lucky enough to make a quick pit stop in San Fran and film Erin & Travis in their home. Overall, it was a super fun shoot for a truly awesome couple.
While putting together their film, Ursula worked closely with our designer, the very talented Ashley Wendus Cook, to create custom and unique packaging for the Save the Dates. The result was an Art Deco card with Miami style colors, which included a map of Erin & Travis’ favorite places, a nod to their underwater scuba diving proposal in the Philippines, and even a flipbook of the photos Travis shot while on the trip! Many thanks to Ashley, along with one of our favorite wedding planners, the amazing Jennifer Johnson, for all of their support with this project!
Erin & Travis, we hope all of your guests around the world enjoy your Save the Date video! We can’t wait to continue to tell your story on 10.13.12!
