brooke + don's lush floral mexican wedding invitations

Brooke and Don were hosting their wedding weekend in Tulum, Mexico and wanted their invitations to be sophisticated, romantic, bohemian and with hints of traditional Mexican design. To achieve a more sophisticated palette, we avoided vibrant festival colors, and found inspiration in the region's natural settings for a bold color scheme. For a dramatic first impression, we used moody, wine-colored envelopes that were hand-addressed in gold brush ink by Jaymie Eaton. I still can’t get over how precise her lettering is for the guests’ addresses! The return address and floral illustration was foil-stamped in gold on the back, and our...

kira + trey's tropical letterpress and rose gold invitations

When I first met with Kira and Trey, the top priority for the couple was to create a welcoming invitation that had hints of festive, tropical graphics and understated elegance for their four day celebration in the Mexican Riviera Maya. For the color palette, we steered clear of typical over-saturated “fiesta” colors, and selected natural, sunbleached colors accented by soft metallics. We honored Mexico’s flora and fauna by incorporating lush palms and sweet little animals throughout the invitation. No time was wasted to profess our love of tropical creatures -- we letterpressed a mischievous monkey on the dusty-blue envelope to...

andrea & matt's gold foil + navy wedding invitations

Lauren Covington custom foil foil print foil stamp gold foil houston julia ideson library library wedding navy wedding wedding invitations wedding paper

Andrea and Matt's wedding invitations were such a special project to work on. I've known the Matt since we were tiny tots, and I had a small part in introducing him to his lovely bride, Andrea. While I can't take any credit for their undeniable chemistry and oh-so-fun wedding, I was lucky enough to work with them on their wedding invitations. We took a little inspiration from the wedding venue, the 1926-built Julia Ideson Building, which now serves as a public library in downtown Houston. How perfect is her dress for a 20's-inspired soiree? The gown was even better in-person, dancing to...

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. Thinking about Turrell's skyspace, it was important for light to interact with the invitation. We started with a square shape, mixing matte and metallic papers, with touches of geometric shapes throughout the suite. The invitation itself had a matt grey jacket with a blade-cut 'skyspace' to showcase the bride and grooms' names. Rannie and Asher...
