H Bar G Ranch


H Bar G Ranch is a beautiful, privately owned ranch in Estes Park, Colorado. Formally a girl's camp, a hostel, and much more, it is now hosting weddings for friends of the owners. I created wedding invitations and a wedding program, as well as party favors and bottle caps. These designs were not only for use in a specific wedding but also with the goal of showing the owners how they can create a brand that can be used for other weddings that are held at the ranch, especially in regards to the gate logo and custom font.


The invite set, including the main invitation, a RSVP card, and an Accommodations card, held together with a bellyband aimed to highlight not only the beautiful setting in which the wedding was to take place but also some important history for the bride and groom. 


The main invitational features the Rocky Mountains, as viewed from H Bar G Ranch, which is owned by the groom's grandmother. This was done in watercolor by Aalbers Designs. The Accommodations and Details cards include natural features pulled from watercolor paintings by the bride's grandmother. The combination of watercolor, nature, and Earth tones represented the wedding's setting and the personalities and histories of both the bride and groom.
