A big congrats to Desiree and David on their recent wedding in San Francisco! We love the full set that we printed for them, based on our Palms design. They completed the set with a Rehearsal Dinner card, Welcome Party card, and Accommodations card - all with sweet detailed images of palm tress and cute coconut cocktails. The set is really pulled together by a black invitation envelope, which makes the suite feel very luxurious.
We love designing wedding itineraries like this playful one for James and Shequana's destination wedding in the Bahamas. They wanted to give their guests an easy to read schedule for the wedding day events. Its a fun extra piece to include in a welcome bag, and is a great reminder of the itinerary. The palm design from the letterpress wedding invitations was added to this card for continuity.
Congratulations to Carla and Joseph for their recent wedding! Their nuptials were a couple of weeks ago in sunny Florida. The emerald green palm tree is stunning (and fitting) above the formal black script. A family member drew a beautiful and fun illustrated map as part of the information card, showing all the important places for the weekend and welcoming their guests to Tampa. We lined the envelopes in a beautiful emerald green, to match the palm tree. Its a gorgeous set of letterpress invitations that we truly enjoyed creating.
Just a quick blog post with a close-up of a gorgeous invitation. We really like how this design is both elegant and informal. The Strangelove font used for the couples' names keeps it from looking too stuffy and the blind embossed palm tree motif adds another subtly, tactile layer to the letterpress technique!
We often collaborate with couples to design invitation suites for destination weddings. One of the fun challenges is to develop a design that complements the setting of the wedding but also maintains the style of the couple. For this Jamaican invitation suite, we worked with a selection of vintage palm tree images and printed everything in a rich blue ink. The darker ink and one color printing give the set a sophisticated look, which was fitting for the stylish (and really sweet) couple.
