rannie & asher's minimal & modern wedding invitations inspired by james turrell's skyspace

Lauren Covington charm and fig custom geometric gold gray grey Invitations james turrell metallic modern wedding invitation wedding paper

I had the pleasure of working with my friend and jewelry designer Rannie Balias, to create a one-of-a-kind-wedding invitation inspired by the ceremony venue, James Turrell's Live Oak Friends Meeting in Houston, Texas.  Rannie and I share a love for Futura, the color grey, and neutral metallics.

Lauren Covington charm and fig snail mail stationery vintage statmps write_on campaign writing letters

Getting real mail is my favorite. I had about a dozen pen pals growing up... from cousins who lived far away and my best friends who lives across town. Free time at summer camp was spent writing letters to family, and even the President of the United States. Getting mail from the White House was always awesome.
