Megan -MagnetStreet Behind the Design
Here’s Megan to tell us about her inspiration behind the design: Watercolor Mason Jar

“This design was inspired by combining two trends; watercolor and mason jars. It has the elegance of rich watercolors, overlaid with playful mason jars. The script font—EmmaScript—works together with the organic feel of the mason jars and watercolor, while the straight lines of Avenir keep it clean and modern. I imagine a fun and modern couple that want to incorporate a vintage twist. This couple will have tiny luxurious details and they have a love for handmade flare. And even though they have multiple styles, their entire wedding goes together seamlessly.”

What do you think about Watercolor Mason Jar for a modern couple with a love for vintage?

Engagement Photo Idea: Props

Categories Photography + Real Weddings

Meet Kayla and Jacob. Today, we’re kicking off our series of 3 engagement sessions featuring props! What’s a prop? Anything that lends support. So, as far as engagement photography goes, props can be anything from physical items that you hold in your hand or wear on your body, to even a building, tree, or babbling brook … anything really.

5 REASONS WHY USING PROPS IN YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS IS A GREAT IDEA:

1. Props help to show off your personality, flair, hobby and unique wedding style.
2. Props add visually interesting elements to your photos.
3. Props bring a level of drama and storytelling to your e-session.
4. Props can be used to introduce your wedding theme on a multi-photo Save the Date postcard or magnet.
5. Using props encourages spontaneity–avoiding awkward or unauthentic posing. Plus, it’s just plain fun!

Among the first words Kayla spoke to her photographer were “I’ve got a 23 piece vintage camera collection I plan on using for decor at the wedding.” So what did Kayla and Becca from B. Jones Photography do? They collaborated on concept, outfits, and props for this sweet session that hints at their upcoming wedding. Enjoy!

Color Monday: Cheery Yellow!

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Happy Color Monday everyone!

Yellow … the color of sunshine. This charming, cheery color is also known in MagnetStreet’s color palette by these variations: Sunbeam, Classic Yellow, Butter, and Marigold. Yellow is a happy color–perfect for weddings because it reminds us of spring {don’t laugh Minnesotans!}. It really is no wonder that yellow is so very popular–and especially when paired with Gray {our celebrated duo for this week}.

Keeping things in an ultra modern color scheme,  Seamless Charm Wedding Invitation design is striking in yellow. Paired with a dramatic black and white back stripe on the backside, it is super modern and trendy. If you’re looking for a bold wedding invitation, this one is impressive!

Yellow and gray really do look great together! The delicate nature of yellow is complimented nicely with a charcoal gray. Keeping the design simple, the Simply in Love Wedding Invitation  design shines with this pairing. I love how the simple little circle complements the flowers. In fact, billy ball flowers are incredibly popular. Oh, and by the way, we even have a Patterned Billy Ball Wedding Invitation design!

Vintage Applique Wedding Invitation design creates an even softer mood. The feminine lace elements are perfectly suited to be used in yellow–even in a bright yellow like sunbeam. Experiment with a few different hues … even if you’re not sure what they will look like. Changing color is a great way to make the design your own!

Please note: In order to make the text readable, I needed to change the text color from yellow to charcoal gray.

 

Obviously you can always start with Yellow Wedding Invitations, but remember that any design can be personalized just the way you want, with the colors you want!

Try adding in some yellow sunshine and let me know how it goes!
