Romantic copper & blush nautical invitations

Elizabeth and Travis came to us looking for the perfect stationery to set the tone for their elegant, ocean-side soiree in historic Newport, RI.

A romantic palette of blush, copper and crisp navy combined with some classic roman fonts and flowing script came together beautifully in this nautical suite. We used color layering, a custom map envelope liner and a fun metallic twine wrap with a tag to give little pops of fun to this traditional design. The end result was luxe and stunning and gave guests a sweet taste of the seaside fun to come!

 

 

Lindsay & Evan’s Ethereal Camp Invitations

We are so excited to see Lindsay & Evan’s wedding featured on June Bug Weddings today! We had such a blast working with these guys last summer for their August nuptials. Kate Martin of Beautiful Days introduced us to the New York couple and Samantha and I immediately fell in love with the dreamy, ethereal wedding they were planning at Camp Takajo in Naples, Maine. Lindsay’s father owns the camp and Evan was a camper as a child. They didn’t know each other way back when but Lindsay’s dad introduced them as adults and from the beginning it was meant to be. It was a no brainer that they would be married under the pine trees in front of their closest friends and family at the camp they both call home.

For the invitation design, we used playful fonts and justified type to infuse playfulness and a neutral, dreamy color palette to balance it all out. Fun wording for the events and reply cards gave nod to the couple’s fun-loving personalities. All the cards were housed in a folio tied with twine and mailed in a metallic envelope lined with a gorgeous, soft-shimmer birch-tree liner. The effect was a charming bundle that evoked a sweet, ethereal vibe while still conveying the fun, casual atmosphere of summer camp.

For the wedding day, we had the pleasure of crafting some coordinating paper details that included a simple, lovely program and one of the more romantic pieces we’ve ever done. Both Lindsay & Evan wrote a list of reasons/things they love about one another along with a sincere note of thanks to their guests; the result was a love letter, of sorts, to each other and to everyone who has supported them along the way. We were all a little misty-eyed after reading this sweet piece.

It was such a blast working with such kind and considerate clients and their team of stellar vendors. Happy almost-one-year, Lindsay & Evan! Here’s to many, many more 🙂
