We loved seeing how our Simple Charms invitation design set the tone for Allison and Nowell’s stylish backyard bohemian California wedding. They customized the design by including a fun and colorful patterned envelope liner in our refined mosaic pattern in sherbet, sand and pewter inks. Vibrant patterns were used throughout the wedding decor, too, and personal touches were sprinkled in throughout the day. From mini margaritas to one of the prettiest table runners (sewn by the mother of the bride!) we love all of the thoughtful details that were woven into this wedding. See even more photos from this real wedding on Style Me Pretty!
Congratulations Allison and Nowell! We hope you enjoyed every moment of your wedding.

We’re suckers for hand calligraphy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Cue McKenzie and Branch’s customization of our Balsam Calligraphy wedding invitation design. Patricia Mumau’s Harrison hand calligraphy is simple, understated and just plain cool in crisp Black letterpress ink.

Our Gracieux wedding invitation design is graceful (hence the name) and elegant – but its also gritty, organic and just a touch untamed. For their recent wedding at Terrain, Julia and Ron paired the Mitty hand calligraphy, handdrawn flourishes and our Modern Herringbone envelope liner with an earthy color palate for a hip yet sophisticated stationery suite.

Flirty, romantic and just plain pretty, our Colette wedding invitation design in Dusty Pink and Pewter has us daydreaming like schoolgirls. Our airy and graceful Maura hand calligraphy pairs perfectly with our Elegant Garden envelope liner in the same soft, sophisticated palate. To keep things simple (and budget friendly), guests were asked to reply via Kristine and Drew’s wedding website included at the bottom of the card.

Hand calligraphy doesn’t have to be stuffy or humdrum to still feel formal and elegant. Need proof? Check out our Miranda wedding invitation design as imagined by Jessica and Jason.

We’re not-so-secretly obsessing over Cristina and Michael’s inspired take on our Eleanor wedding invitation design.

We were so happy to see Mindy & Travis’ elegant rustic Virginia wedding on Style Me Pretty recently. We worked with the couple for their letterpress invitations and menus, and combined the border from our Romantic Floral design with hand calligraphy by Debi Zeinert in our Classic Calligraphy style. A soft color palette using our French vanilla and pewter letterpress inks looked stunning our luxurious ivory paper. The elegant, romantic look of the invitations set the tone for their gorgeous celebration, which featured various shades of pink, creams and blush. Mindy and Travis enhanced their already gorgeous barn venue by hanging romantic bistro lights and displaying elegant floral arrangements. The end result? Breathtaking.
Mindy and Travis, congratulations! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
