Bella Figura Real Wedding: Kristen and Michael’s nautical Maine wedding

We worked with our friends over at Gus and Ruby for the nautical invitations for Kristen and Michael’s Maine wedding, and we love seeing the way the set coordinated with the rest of the wedding day details! The couple chose our Harbor Beach invitation design for their June wedding, and added custom envelope liners featuring a map of York Harbor (where the wedding was held) as a finishing touch. Their reception took place at the Dockside Guest Quarters and was filled lots of chic nautical touches, including a rope-wrapped bouquet, oars for a guest book, and “captain” buoys as chair decor.

Modern and sleek Harbor Beach letterpress wedding invitations

Our Harbor Beach design (by Jessica Tierney) looks ultra modern in this letterpress wedding invitation submitted by our friends, Francis Orr in Corona del Mar, California.  The color combination of sand and charcoal inks are so subtle, yet crisp. The anchor motif is replaced with a simple monogram and repeated throughout the suite. Charcoal grounds this set from the edge painting to the solid envelope liner. We love the beauty and simplicity that makes the letterpress printing shine.

inks: charcoal + sand | fonts: holden + aurora  | paper: 1-ply white  | invite size: SQ7 for inner envelope  | liner: classic color pattern in charcoal ink | edge painting: charcoal | client coordinator: christie jones | in-house designer: racheal decker
