If you take a look at previous work by ElisaAnne Calligraphy, you’ll noticed that venue illustrations might be a favorite around here :) Below, we’ve shared a few reasons why we love them so much:

venue illustrations provide A SNEAK PEEK

Venue illustrations give your guest the perfect taste of what’s to come. It sets the scene of a beautiful church, elegant cathedral, country club or outdoor setting. Providing a sneak peek of the venue can build excitement for the guests, give them an idea of the dress code, environment and more! Think of it as a teaser-trailer for your big day.

venue illustrations can be used on a wedding map

If your weekend has multiple locations, you might want to include a map of the area or venue to help your guests know where they should be. You can include locations like the ceremony, reception, cocktail hour and more to provide a layout of where each phase of the day will be.

Or, if the location of your wedding is somewhere special or symbolic to you and your partner (like a town or college campus) your map can also include special or memorable locations of your relationship as well!

venue illustrations act as a special keepsake

The venue is likely the first detail you picked for your big day - which means you probably fell in love with it! Including this illustration as a detail on your wedding stationery is a wonderful way to remember it forever, not to mention guests will definitely be pinning theirs on their fridge!

your venue is where you say “I DO”!

The venue is the starting place of the rest of your lives! When you leave your venue, you’ll be a married couple!

Your wedding invitation is the most impactful and fun way to leave a beautiful first impression on your guests. And we think that the best way to do this is with a hand-illustrated invitation that tells your unique love story. Whether you’re planning a black-tie wedding or a whimsical, backyard wedding, take a little bit of control back on this detail and use an illustration to let your personality and excitement shine through!
