Well friends, we’re at the end of my month of weddings and I’ve saved the best for last!
Remember Krista and Chris’ gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations from earlier this year? After the big day, I reached out to their photographer, Sara Smile about sharing a few of the gorgeous photos (which she did, so stay tuned!).
She also mentioned a romantic Brothers Grimm-themed fairy tale styled wedding photo shoot she was working on. After checking out her inspiration board, I offered to design stationery for the shoot—and my new favorite invitations were born!
I started by breaking out the watercolors to paint deep burgundy peonies, mauve anemones and snapdragons, and the palest blush poppies, along with sticks and leaves to fill out the arrangements. They might be my favorite illustrations I’ve created so far!
I’ve been wanting to create a looser typography design and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! I love this new calligraphic typeface, it’s almost as beautiful as Kelsey Malie’s beautiful envelope calligraphy!
Speaking of envelopes, did you spot these custom-lined envelopes? This is the first time I’ve ordered them and they are AMAZING! They’ll be another a la carte option in my shop, but in the mean time feel free to get in touch for custom envelopes!
Order these invites in my etsy shop and stay tuned for the stunning photos from Sara’s shoot!
Well friends, we’re getting close to the end of my month of weddings, so I thought we’d go out with a bang. Originally created for a late-summer boho styled shoot (pics to come this fall!), I painted the watercolor flowers for these myself.
I love the energy and colors in this suite, but I think my favorite part is actually the whimsical design of the RSVP! Such a fun way to pack in a lot of information for your guests.
Too much floral can get repetitive, so for the boho save the date, I let the brush lettering shine on an ombré watercolor background. My new offset printer offers a variety of die-cut shapes, which really makes this piece stand out!
I created these nearly monochromatic white and green chrysanthemum invitations for the bride who doesn’t want her day to be an explosion of color. Full of energy, yet still elegant, these invites work perfectly for many different kinds of nuptials. Also featured in this suite is one of my hand-drawn custom maps—more details here!
Friends from Bermuda are celebrating their nuptials at a yacht club in New York tomorrow! Since I already had this trip home planned, I’m unable to attend, but I used their big day as my inspiration for these nautical invitations!
Whether a dockside wedding or a seafaring theme, this sweet anchor motif paired with navy envelopes is perfect!
Whimsical and modern, these invitations are unlike anything I’ve shown you yet! Born from my love for typography, this design doesn’t need graphics to create a preview of your big day. Perfect for a wedding (or any other event!) taking place in an urban loft space, or for any no-frills couple, these invitations can even be customized with any accent color (although I sure am partial to yellow!).
Ah, #monsteramonday! I’ve been saving these, just so I could use that hashtag on my Instagram post! It’s been quite the task, as this design is one of my favorites!
When I saw these giant monstera leaves in a pack of watercolor illustrations I recently purchased, I knew they would make an awesome statement on an invitation! Equally perfect for a South Beach wedding (can you imagine these with a pink envelope?!) or a foliage-filled urban loft, these invites are sure to get your guests excited for the big day.
We interrupt your regular programming for a post about a real wedding—happening today!
You saw the preview of Abi and Spencer’s gorgeous save the date last winter, and now I’m excited to share the rest of their stationery!
For their invitation design, I expanded on their Art Nouveau theme and added a few special touches to create a truly stand out suite.
I’ve been wanting to use petal envelopes for a while now, so I was very excited about these gorgeous deep blue beauties! Topped with an antique gold faux wax seal, they are the perfect introduction to these beautiful invitations.
About halfway through production of the invitations, the bride’s mother ordered a set of my Advice for the Bride & Groom coasters to have on hand for the reception. I love her thoughtfulness!
I used the same beautiful sparkling gold paper for the invitations and my gorgeous cotton stock printed with coordinating gold ink for the invitations. Mixing papers and materials adds an artistic flair to this luxurious, historically inspired invitation suite. I love how it all came together!
