Brittany & Robert : Wedding Invitations

I originally met with Brittany for a paper order when she was planning to DIY her wedding invitations, but she decided to go the custom design route with me and then assemble her printed invitations with her bridesmaids!

The invitations were designed to have a romantic elegant style with ornate flourish details. Brittany chose a pocket card format with the panel invitation on the front and pocket for the stacked enclosure cards on the back, and we used the light champagne, blush pink and ecru paper colors that she loved paired with a classic black design.

Abby & Justin : Wedding Invitations

Abby and Justin are getting married in the Dominican Republic this May. Their destination wedding invitations were designed with a starfish theme and in neutral ivory and antique gold colors with a pop of bright coral orange / pink, which will be the bridesmaids' dress color.

A layered monogram seal dresses up the linen textured pocketfold, which was the perfect enclosure to hold the invitation and travel information cards neatly in place.

The three enclosure cards have a preppy chevron wave pattern at the top. We did not want to overuse the starfish motif, so I included complementary sketches of seashells to accent the cards, and repeated all three illustrations on the response postcard.

One of my favorite design details - passport style stamps that were printed on the coral mailing envelopes along with the guest and return addresses. The passport stamps were designed with Abby and Justin's wedding destination and date.
