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...

mallary + clint's blue east coastal letterpress and gold foil wedding invitations

Check out this blue beauty! Mallary and Clint tied the knot in Mantoloking, New Jersey at a gorgeous 130-year-old church, followed by an outdoor reception at the Mantoloking Yacht Club. What says East Coast summer more than that? For the invitation, we paired a ocean blue letterpress with gold foil on 100% cotton paper. Their monogram was set in interlocking flags as a subtle nod to the nautical vibe -- and how fab does it look in gold foil? We selected a blue pattern liner of Mediterranean tile and Chinese ginger jars, which would be used at the reception. Favorite personal touch:...

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...

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...
