nina & david's olive, gold, cream & blush summer wedding invitations

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...

That time I wrote a book...
