katie + austin's romantic dusty blue and gold illustrated wedding invitations

Katie and Austin came to me looking romantic and elegant invitations for their Palm Springs wedding. We decided to use gold foil, dusty blue and cool gray for a romantic palette, and infused hand-illustrated elements into the suite to give it an organic touch. The invitation was a mix of dusty blue letterpress and gold foil, with hand-drawn floral illustrations and a delicate, gold-foil stamped wreath monogram. The map -- one of my favorite pieces, and a great place to inject some personality in your wedding suite. We included a little itinerary for the guests that listed the weekend events, as well...

Lauren Covington Announcement botanical Emboss envelope liner floral letterpress lettra Wedding Zoffany

molly + nik's letterpress marriage announcements

Molly and Nik planned to have a private ceremony for their nuptials, but they opted for some pretty paper to share the news. As a interior designer, Molly had the genius idea to use a botanical wallpaper for her envelope liners. She selected Zoffany's gorgeous Romy's Garden pattern in silver - with blooming cream peonies, playful insects and barely-blush sprigs of blooms, it was a super sweet homage to new beginnings. For the card, we used double-ply 100% cotton Lettra paper, letterpressed it with a green-toned black ink, and blind-embossed the couple's monogram at top center. I just love how crisp and clean these...

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...

marina's wizard of oz-inspired shower invitations

No doubt, my favorite scene from Wizard of Oz is when Dorthy & Co. find themselves in the field of poppies as they approach the Emerald City. So when I was approached to create some Wizard of Oz-inspired invitations for a wedding shower, I knew there'd be no yellow brick road or rainbows, but a lots of pretty botanical poppies and little hint of Dorothy's famous gingham dress.  The realistic botanicals make these bridal a little more sophisticated than a typical themed invitation. Let's face it, even as a party planner, you're not always in charge of the theme -...

taylor + mark's copper and chocolate fall wedding invitation

This wedding suite made me want to pull out cozy wool blankets and the spiked-apple cider right away! Taylor unabashedly loves orange which was a no-brainer to use for her fall wedding, and a not-so-secret tribute to her beloved Texas Longhorns. We ran with the  idea of using lots of copper, fall florals and romantic details for this black tie wedding.First impressions are important! The first thing guests would see when they opened the interior envelope was lined with a fall floral displaying sophisticated hues orange, wine, plum and forest green. True story: another client saw a sample of this...
