melissa + joseph's marfa, texas wedding

This one is so unique and a joy for me to share. I met Melissa Fitzerald and Joseph West in my previous career, working for Downtown Houston. I was so honored when they came to me for their wedding invitations, and I knew that we would come up with something that could only be for Melissa and Joe.  Before I get into stationery details... their story gives me some warm and fuzzies. The short version is that these two started out as friends and photographer buds. Fell in love with each other, inspired each other, fell in love with West Texas, got married...

blush + emerald modern boho baby shower invitations

This was my all-time favorite shower invite to create, which makes it fitting that it's for two dear friends who will unquestionably be fantastic parents. The hosts put together a jaw-dropping Pinterest board for inspiration and gave me free reign on the invitation. Emerald envelope, blush paper and glittery vellum with a copper brad gave this invitation a subtle layers and textures for the recipient to enjoy. I kept the text minimal and delicate to give the pink palm and glitter vellum some decent visibility. Actual cake from the shower (!!!). Every detail was impeccable, warm, and welcoming. Our friends Josephine and Yvette would be gangbusters in the party-planning biz....

For Nina and David's wedding invitation suite, the couple wanted to mail something that felt relaxed, intriguing and welcoming to their guests. In order to honor the setting and season, a romantic outdoor summer wedding at the historic Cairnwood Estate near Philadelphia, we chose olive, blush and gold for the color palette with subtle visuals of olive branches. We veered away from tradition by repeating the square shape and mixing minimalist fonts with romantic scripts.  Plus, square invitations are an effortless way to differentiate your invitation from the rest of your guests' mail. The construction concept of the invitation started with...

megan & cody's glamorous gray + gold wedding invitations

Megan knew right off the bat she wanted charcoal gray and gold to be the main focus of her wedding invitations. I happily obliged, as it's one of my personal favorite neutral color combinations. The wedding itself would romantic and rustic, so we used  Debi Sementelli's flirty Cantoni script to reflect that theme.  We brightened up the suite with a rose patterned envelope liner printed on Neenah's Stardream paper.  For custom wedding invitations, contact Charm & Fig.

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...
