allison & chuck's mid-century winter wedding invitations

As Allison and Chuck were planning a black tie December wedding, we took a cue from the reception venue that was nestled along Houston’s Buffalo Bayou. We anchored the suite around a deep forest green to reflect the bayou’s lush backdrop of oak and pine trees on the water. The glimmers of copper were reminiscent of the city's lights reflecting on the water and embracing a holiday color scheme. The couple has an affinity for mid-century design (Palm Springs honeymoon!), so we incorporated the coolness and elegance of that era with typography and clean lines throughout the suite. We introduced...

adrienne + christian's bilingual letterpress wedding invitations

Hi! It's been more than six months since I've posted work on my blog. What happened? I had a baby and have been enjoying the life out of her and her big brother. It's been so good to take some time.  I'm been quiet working on a few things, and am slowly photographing work that's been in my 'must share' box from the past 18 months. Since we're currently summer, I'll start with Adrienne and Christian's invitations from August 2017. This couple was amazing to work with... and so patient as we corresponded and collaborated from different time-zones, as the couple...

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...

kristen + michael's gold, rose gold & blush wedding invitations

Kristen and Mike tied the knot in the seaside city of Galveston, Texas on the weekend before Valentine's Day. As we brainstormed for their suite, they wanted it to be luxurious, romantic, beachy, and not overly formal. Gold foil and mix-and-match textures were a top priority. The invitation was gold foil-stamped on double-ply Lettra paper and duplexed with a metallic rose gold paper to give it extra thickness and texture. While the calligraphy font brought a major femininity factor, we consciously opted for a heavier block text on other pieces to bring in more masculinity. I always call the reception...

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...
