megan & russ's veuve clicquot-inspired wedding invitations

Working on this wedding invitation suite was a serious treat. Megan and Russ are great friends of ours and not a single minute of this felt like work. In fact, Megan's clear vision and creative trust really allowed me to create something timeless with unconventional details. Her wedding inspiration was Veuve Clicquot's Polo Classic, an iconic event known for its fresh flowers, trademark yellow, dappled with the springiest greens and pinks. We focused on white, black, "Veuve" yellow and embraced blind debossed elements to achieve negative space. In my opinion, nothing feels as luxurious as crisp white. Walls. Sheets. Paper! For the Save the Date, we wanted...

Lauren Covington black tie copper foil formal green letterpress mid-century save the date Square square envelope wedding winter

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...

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.

stephanie & sam's gold moose bar harbor, maine wedding invitations

Lauren Covington blue calligraphy custom save the date gold foil kraft maine moose nautical post card save the date vintage statmps wedding paper weddings

This bride was a dream client! An event planner, based in NYC, she had a good idea of what she wanted. Pretty, nautical-inspired invitations with a Maine moose sprinkled about. The moose is the magical beast of Maine's wildlife, and pretty close pronunciation of her new last name. How could we not? For the design, I embraced the geometrics of nautical flags throughout, steering clear of overdone anchors for a subtle nautical vibe. For the color palette, we started with crisp whites, and then sprinkled in sun-bleached ocean hues, kraft paper and touches of gold. Everything was bundled in kraft folder...
