wedding in the woods - stationery

bohemian wedding in the woods | photo by 88forever | illustration by Inspire Styling WeddingsBefore I share the last part of our wedding in the woods.. a small post about the stationery! I know I have shown it before, but it looks so much better when Danique is in control of the camera ;)

When I decided to illustrate the save the dates myself I didn't think the list of handdrawn pieces would end up like this: save the date, invitation, rsvp, route, enveloppe lining, personalized stamps and stickers, menu cards, leaves on the banner at the party, illustrations in our 'Amersfoort tour' booklet/giveaway and the cover of a (last minute) handmade guestbook. But I created every single thing and I am more than proud I did! I had to wipe dust off my watercolor paintbox, spend a crazy amount of hours drawing leaves and flowers, ignore a few doubts.. but I did it and I would do it again in a heartbeat!! Every piece looks so incredibly good! It set the tone for the rest of the wedding and inspired our guests to create some amazing cards and gifts for us.

Oh.. and I haven't put away my watercolors since! :) bohemian wedding in the woods | photo by 88forever | illustration by Inspire Styling Weddingsbohemian wedding in the woods | photo by 88forever | illustration by Inspire Styling Weddingsbohemian wedding in the woods | photo by 88forever | illustration by Inspire Styling Weddings Curious about our give away? It isn't in any of the pictures, but I can share the PDF file with you: Tour de Anne&Stefan - Amersfoort.

Our personal give away was a booklet with tips for visiting Amersfoort, Anne&Stefan style. We created a route based on our memories here and our favorite places to hang out. Expect a lot of tiny streets, green bits and good food. The texts are all Dutch, but there are plenty of photos (and an illustrated map) for the rest of you. Please feel free to read it, but please do not print or use it without my permission!

tiny adventures: tiny streets of Den Bosch

After some busy weeks working on the backstage room for Doornroosje I presented the finished room in the first week of September. I am super proud of how it turned out, it looks great! I can't wait to see it in use and hear what the artists think! 3voor12 Gelderland posted a small interview with all the designers on their website. The text is somewhat incorrect, but the short video is quite nice. Have a look if you want :) Last weekend Stefan and I had a weekend off and stayed at my aunt&uncle in Den Bosch. I love this town, it is beautiful, historic and there's lots of green. There is always something happening, it is alive and bubbly, people are friendly, generous and love to sit down to enjoy a long dinner. And this great place in the South has a cute bonus.. I keep finding confetti! :)flower confetti | Inspire Styling journal We walked around, explored all the tiny streets and alleys we could find, visited a medieval market and of course.. sat down with my family with a lot of good food and even more wine (oops.. I'm still feeling that one). But despite the Sunday hangover, it was a great weekend! street - Inspire Styling journalvine | Inspire Styling journalroses | Inspire Styling journalmedieval market, arrows - Inspire Styling journalowl, hawk | Inspire Styling journal Oh, those eyes.. he looks so cute and cuddly! Which he is not.. This was at the medieval market, some falconers showed off their gorgeous birds. There were a lot of owls and hawks, in all shapes and sizes. I loved all the patterns on their beautiful feathers! Usually medieval markets aren't really my thing, but they did a good job on this one. I was quite impressed with all the old furniture and props, the decor was very detailed. And well.. those owl eyes might have won me over.. :)flower pots | Inspire Styling journalyellow berries | Inspire Styling journalpainted wall | Inspire Styling journalstreetstyle | Inspire Styling journal This street was a dream.. the painted Gustav Klimt-like wall, all the flowers, cute houses, a community garden. We instantly started talking about moving here. Stefan took a 'streetstyle' picture of me, the visual proof I fit in perfectly here ;)

Btw.. how cute/amazing is my fluffy 'Big Bird' cardigan? I found it at a second hand store a couple of months ago (when it was 30 degrees), it's finally chilly enough to wear it! :) canal, Den Bosch | Inspire Styling journaldown by the water - Inspire Styling journalhollyhocks | Inspire Styling journalhollyhock flowers | Inspire Styling journal Stefan threw these fallen hollyhock flowers in the canal, thinking it would look really cool when they opened a bit. But they didn't fall pretty, just flat on the water.. A bit sad but the colours are beautiful! windowsill | Inspire Styling journalSt Jan cathedral, Den Bosch | Inspire Styling journalSt Jan cathedral, Den Bosch | Inspire Styling journal This beautiful ceiling belongs to the Saint Jans cathedral. It is a very impressive building! We never visit churches for religious reasons, because we don't believe anything, but I like the architecture of most old churches. And just look at those reflections on the wall!

If you don't know this town, you definitely should book a weekend someday! Den Bosch is the best place to shop, I especially love the little streets with vintage and local stores. And although the big square is super crowded on Saturdays, the flower&food market is great. I always buy flowers here to give to my aunt (Anna, I was named after her!), snowberries this time. There are a lot of great cultural things to do, like visiting the cathedral, joining a boat tour, or going to one of the many theatres&museums. If you don't feel like spending or doing a lot, do as we did.. just stroll around and enjoy all the pretty corners in this city! And take it easy on the wine ;)
