Greetings From Devin and Tara | Long Branch, New Jersey | Save the date
The above Save the Date is what started this whole business. From the start, with my (then future) groom's blessing, I wanted the theme of our wedding to be about our love for each other, founded on the Jersey coastline. I wanted to focus on our love for long summer nights at the beach and all of the time we've spent gazing off into the distance from the sand, or gazing back at the sand from the distance and all of the amazing places been to and had the opportunity to know and love together, all the way from Sandy Hook to Cape May! We settled pretty early on for a Jersey-meets-tropical-paradise theme.
One night an idea popped into my head to make our own "Greetings From" postcard, gathering inspiration from so many different vintage postcards and, of course, Greetings from Asbury Park. We gathered our favorite pictures together throughout the years and this little number was the result.
Since this initial piece so much has changed and evolved, and every single second of it has been an amazing journey. There are always going to be little here-and-there's that I wish I had done differently (design-wise), but that comes with growing as a designer. This piece is so special to me, and Hungry Heart Ink as a whole. It's the piece that brought this dream business to life, ignited a passion I would have otherwise never discovered, and, was the first correspondence to bring my family and friends together for the best night of our lives, to date.
