Wedding Venue Illustration Uses

As my business has grown, I have come to realize that my style is very much based on hand illustrations. These illustrations could be crests or flowers. Most importantly, they could be venue illustrations.

Venue illustrations are completely hand drawn by me, and it is obvious to guests that lots of time and love go into each sketch. Certainly, it’s one of the best parts of my job. All growing up, I wanted to be an architect. Even though this isn’t the same as drawing accurate floor plans, I think that is the reason I have such a love for drawing architecture.

Save the Date

A fun way to incorporate venue illustrations into your wedding stationery is by putting it on your save the date. Fortunately, this is a great option for couples who want to keep their wedding invitation design clean and simple. This works well because it won’t take any focus away from your wedding invitation.

Wedding Invitation

However, some couples do opt to put their venue directly on the invitation. This can be a wonderful addition if you consider your venue itself to be a large part of the overall wedding theme.
