A coworker friend of mine got married this summer, and she asked me to design the invitations.
We got a few of the other girl chemists to come help brainstorm one day. After I showed her a few rough sketches of different ideas, she picked this is, I think because the colors of her wedding were yellow and blue and originally she had an idea to have this as the center piece but I think that changed at the last minute or something.
Anyway, I just drew the picture in colored pencil (using a few different photo references; I didn't have an actual picture of a sunflower in a wine bottle, but I think if I were to do it again I would set up a still life for myself and draw from that) and then just arranged it and added text in Adobe InDesign.
Their loved ones got their wedding so I think that means I succeeded :-) (Although I don't know if they used the thank you cards yet, so I won't jump to conclusions...)

Anyone else wanna get married?...
