Wedding invitations inspired by popular Brooklyn wedding venues

We are so excited to share that our Bella Figura studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn has been officially reopened! To celebrate, we are sharing four designs that were inspired by popular wedding venues in the area. If you are looking to make an appointment at our Greenpoint studio, you can do so through our online booking tool here! Below you will find some more details about the inspiration that helped bring these Brooklyn designs to life:

Verdant

The rustic, vintage appeal of the Greenpoint Loft set the tone for our Verdant design. The suite features illustrations that reflect different parts of the venue. The Greenpoint water tower can be found on the reply card, specifically chosen for its unique aesthetic that is visible from all points of the neighborhood. The skyline was incorporated within the suite as a draw from the rooftop view of the Greenpoint Loft.

The Verdant suite features Stone letterpress ink on our white Bella Smooth Cotton paper. The set features a vellum belly-band with the skyline printed in Stone digital ink. The envelope liner printed in Stone and Mineral adds a modern flair.

Esme

The Box House Hotel inspired the design of our Esme suite. Stunning skyline views can be found at this particular wedding venue which are reflected within the design. Clean, line illustrations can be found throughout such as special touches like a taxi motif along with a small venue illustration of the Box House Hotel on the reception card.

The Esme suite features Black letterpress ink as well as Platinum Shine foil printed on our bright White Bella Cotton paper. A black outer envelope keeps everything together with a geometric envelope liner pattern printed in Black, Cinder and Pale Gray digital ink. 

Vale

The William Vale venue set the tone for our Vale design. Known for its sweeping views near the water and architecturally distinct nature, this venue required an invitation suite that matched the scenery. Our Bella Royal paper echoed the nautical surrounding of the venue with an envelope liner to represent the architectural lines of the building.

The Vale design is printed in White Matte foil on our Bella Royal paper with Blind Deboss accents on the reverse to create texture and interest. A white envelope paired with a Royal envelope liner tied everything together from the inside out. 

Kent

Giando on the Water looks out to expansive views of the beautiful skyline right on the water. The Kent design was created to mimic the venue’s elegant aesthetic. We kept the design simplistic yet intriguing to look at with touches of Brooklyn to be found throughout.

The Kent design was printed in Antique Gold letterpress on our Bella Cotton ivory paper with Gold Matte foil edging. All additional insert cards carried Antique Gold letterpress on each as well. An envelope liner of a map of Brooklyn added vintage appeal to the overall suite. 

Anakin, Charletto and Emmeline: wedding invitation customizations inspired by baby announcements

Our baby announcement gallery might not be the first place you look for wedding invitation inspiration, but these three customizations may change that. Since all of our designs are customizable, we can update any of them to create the perfect invitation for any celebration.

Our Anakin design blends ultra modern typography with our Gray paper and dramatic blind embossing. Transformed as a wedding invitation it feels a touch more elegant when paired with a Silver foil striped envelope liner on coordinating Gray paper.

As a baby shower invitation, Charletto is playful and sweet. By updating the color palette to soft, moody blues and greens the vibe feels more formal without losing the fun, youthful feel of the original design.

The ladylike sweetness of Emmeline is perfect for announcing baby girl; but replace the delicate toile envelope liner pattern and replace with a foil-stamped, tailored stripe and the design is transformed from baby to wedding while maintaining the stylish typography.

Tressa, Fedora and Adeline: Mitzvah invitations reimagined for wedding

Did you know that any of our designs can be used to inspire invitations for any occasion? Here are three Mitzvah designs reimagined as invitations for wedding celebrations.

Our Tressa design is bright and cheerful, perfect for a joyful Bat Mitzvah celebration. Reimagined as a wedding invitation its cool and contemporary in Bronze foil on Black paper. The envelope liner introduces the watercolor artwork printed in Fawn ink, adding subtle sophistication.

Fedora draws inspiration from modern, tropical design. For a softer, more romantic feel more appropriate for a wedding, we printed Rose Gold foil on our Light Gray paper and used a palette of soft pink inks to print a breezy palm pattern on the envelope liner.

Rich and dramatic florals are the focal point of our Adeline design. For a more modern, typographic feel we focused on the splatter pattern and added classic typography in Opaline Shine over a digitally printed, night sky-inspired ombre.

Our friends at Soirée Signatures in Alabama helped Kelley and Charles concept this bold customization of our Elemental design. They opted for Rose Gold foil on our Plum colored paper, keeping the modern square shape. Our Diego pattern in Rose Gold on Plum paper dressed up their envelope.

spruce and ruby letterpress rehearsal dinner invitations

We worked with Slightly South to help bring these spruce and ruby letterpress rehearsal dinner invitations to life. The couple opted for rounded corners which brought a softness to the set. A border filled with whimsical illustrations added a touch of playfulness while the font remained classic and easy to read. They paired a matching reply card with a single illustration motif added to keep everything consistent. Their envelope liner using our dune pattern brought a geometric element into play.

colorful cortes inspired letterpress invitations made for a Mexico wedding

Geena and Zackary worked with our team and Union Street Papery to create these colorful cortes inspired letterpress invitations. They used blind deboss accents on the top and the bottom of the design to create a subtle, yet whimsical impact. The insert cards also carried the theme from the invitation, but with unique accents of their own to set them apart. The digitally printed envelope liner tied all the colors of the suite together. We have no doubt this wedding was one to remember!
