I wanted to share some of the inspiration behind my Modern Fairytale wedding invitation suite for Elli.com and announce that there is now a coordinating save the date. The concept for this design started with patterns inspired by all the beautiful wrought ironwork in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I find the swirling ironwork so romantic and feminine, that I thought it would lend itself perfectly to wedding designs. Here are two of my own photos that I found particularly beautiful and inspiring:
