Norman Rockwell Theme Wedding-Save the Dates

It’s time to unleash our Save-the-Date Designs (since they have officially been mailed off to our family and friends).   Paul and I were trying to decide a good theme for our wedding, other than just vintage.   This is what we came up with.

A little background on our design:

Norman Rockwell was a very famous painter and illustrator doing over 300 covers for The Saturday Evening Post.    We have turned it into The Saturday Evening Wedding.  While designing this Save the Date we took into account Norman Rockwell’s style and created something that had meaning to us as well.  He used a lot of round shapes in the background of his images.  We used the Ferris Wheel on ours since that is how Paul purposed to me.  We also tried to incorporate exaggerated expressions through our faces.  The original photo we took was in our living room.   Paul ran some filters on it to give it an oil painting look.  He’s so talented right?!  Tada,   Here’s a sneak peek to what our wedding day will hold.  Enjoy,

“The Date Saver”

    As I told you for my sneek preview: I LOVE this! And for the record: Christopher said to tell you (seriously..and he never does that) that he freakin’ loves this and it’s the coolest invitation that he’s ever seen. I tried to explain the Save the Date vs. Invitation but he didn’t care. lol LOVE you guys and I can’t wait for the wedding. :)

      HAHA. I was explaining to Paul that we needed to get the Save the Dates out soon. He was like, “Do we even need to do those? Before I met you, Ive never even heard of them”. He didn’t really get it either. But I ensured him that all the girls would. LOL.

    I can’t wait to get married to order these! My boyfriend’s name is Norman Rockwell. Norman is his nickanme but it’s what everyone calls him. I’ve been looking for something like this and it’s perfect.
