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.

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...

blush & blind letterpress save the dates featuring aspen's maroon bells

Lately I've been attracted to small, understated pieces. This bride was looking for a light and airy Save the Date for her summer Aspen wedding, something chic and lovely. We quickly decided to create a blind letterpress impression of the Rocky Mountains' most famous peaks, and had the text letter-pressed with a barely there blush. I love how they look paired with this powder green envelope. For custom Save the Dates, contact Charm & Fig.

We used a dusty blue gray as the primary color, inspired by the muted tones of desert succulents and the bridesmaids dresses -- so chic!  The rich copper foil balanced out the lightness of the blue and was a subtle wink to the...
