Introducing Sherah

The Rainbow Room venue inspired Jessica Downs to create our Sherah design. She wanted to create a modern suite inspired by the city. The pattern is based on an art deco wallpaper with a subtle nod to the skyscraper skyline. 

Below, the suite is reimagined in rich burgundy and bronze, perfect for a winter wedding.

Chambray and Rose Invitations with Watercolor Accents

We worked with our friends at Union Street Papery to create Allison and Ryan’s beautiful springtime wedding invitations. Chambray and tea rose letterpress inks are the perfect spring color combination, and accent the florals of the frame. We used several watercolor motifs from our library to make the details card more unique. Our Emmerich liner in chambray was the perfect finishing detail.

letterpress ink: chambray + tea rose | digital inks: chambray + cmyk | fonts: neutra text alt/light sc alt demi/bold, wild moon, adobe garamond pro italic | paper: bella smooth cotton white 2-ply + 1-ply | invite size: f-8 | liner: emmerich pattern in chambray | envelope: bella cotton white | customization #70165

Modern Invitations for a Brooklyn Wedding

Brooke and Jonathan worked with the team at our NYC studio to create their Brooklyn- themed wedding invitation suite. Our Derian design inspired the modern font-driven layout. We also incorporated a border as used on our Hadaway design. The suite highlights the stunning venue views with a letterpressed image of the Brooklyn Bride, and NYC map liner. We love the sweet red heart marking the wedding venue!

Soft Romantic Wedding Invitations for a Napa Treehouse Wedding

We worked with our friends at Union Street Papery to create Julie and Alfie’s beautiful wedding invitations. We used Spruce and Cinder letterpress inks on the invitation to create a romantic vineyard palette. A flood of cinder letterpress ink prints the rehearsal dinner card – the absence of ink on the card itself creates the white of the text.

letterpress inks: spruce + cinder | fonts: slight script, mrs eaves petite caps + adobe garamond pro italic | paper: bella cotton white 2-ply + 1-ply | invite size: f-8 | liner: tapestry pattern in acadia | envelope: bella cotton white | customization #70019

Introducing Frances

Alyssa Tidd designed Frances, part of our 2024 wedding collection.

The inspiration for the design was modern elegance – neutrals mixed with pops of bright color and a unique tile-style pattern. The structures and landscaping of the Inn at the Mission also helped to inspire the color palette.

letterpress ink: blind deboss | foil stamping: copper shine + white matte | embossing: blind | fonts: branch + desirable sans | paper: khaki 2-ply + metallic fairway 2-ply + metallic azalea 2-ply | invite size: sq-7 | foil edging: copper shine | liner: frances pattern in copper shine on khaki | envelope: bella cotton white

Alyssa also reimagined the design:
I thought it would be nice to step away from the bright colors and shiny foil and create a more traditional and sophisticated color palette.

Blue Floral Wedding Invitations with Illustrated Envelope Liner

Maci and Andrew worked with our friends at Sweet Paper to create their beautiful wedding invitation suite. Classic fonts were printed in royal blue letterpress. Our Florence florals were embossed around the invitation, perfectly pairing with the white roses in the supplied liner illustration. The romantic suite is tied with a mother of pearl bow.

letterpress ink: royal blue | embossing: blind | fonts: adobe garamond pro, white garden regular | paper: bella smooth cotton 2-ply + 1-ply | invite size: f-8 | silk ribbon: mother of pearl | liner: custom supplied illustration | envelope: bella cotton white | customization #69873

Odeon Inspired Wedding Stationery

We had the pleasure to work with the Melamed family directly to create this beautiful wedding stationery. Inspiration came from the wedding venue itself, the Hotel Zaza Museum District in Houston, Texas. Our Odeon suite was the perfect compliment to the architecture. We updated the suite a touch with gold matte foil stamping, rather than gold shine. It was such a special experience to help create all of these pieces.

letterpress ink: black | foil stamping: gold matte | font: brilon | paper: bella cotton white 1-ply + 2-ply | invite size: f-8 | foil edging: gold matte | liner: gatsby pattern in antique gold + black | envelope: bella cotton white | customizations #64590 + #66144

Bella Figura Real Wedding: Custom Illustrated Floral Invitations for a Hamptons Wedding

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Kate and Jeff through our NYC studio to create their beautiful custom rose invitation suite. We’ll let Kate take it from here to share more about their wedding details!

CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A BIT ABOUT YOUR WEDDING AND YOUR INSPIRATION FOR THE EVENT?
We chose to get married in the backyard of my family’s home where Jeff and I spent a lot of time together with family and where I spent so much time growing up. Sagaponack has brought us a ton of happy memories relaxing and being outdoors so it was so special to then have the ultimate wedding night there! We tried to make everything feel really natural, didn’t try to overdo the decor, but keep it really elegant and classic.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR COUPLES CURRENTLY PLANNING A WEDDING?
Take your time, think through the details and focus on what you care about! If it’s music, or decor, the Afterparty, or the passed appetizers — spend the time making your favorite parts exactly how you want them!

HOW DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR INVITATION DESIGN & INK COLORS?
With a ton of help from the Bella team and our close friend Charlotte. We wanted it to feel really serene and peaceful, stuck to blues greens and grays to match the landscape around us.

WHAT SURPRISED YOU MOST ABOUT YOUR WEDDING?
Probably the impromptu hurricane that popped up on the radar two days before — ha!
But truly, It goes so quickly just as everyone told me – you really have to be in the moment and embrace having fun with all of your friends and family versus focusing on any details or sequence or schedule you had in mind. It always goes just as it should!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT?
So hard to pick! Walking into the tent once everyone was inside was so special — it was so overwhelming to see everyone we love in one spot and safely tucked out of the rain 🙂

FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT OF YOUR BIG DAY?
The ottomans by the dance floor — gorgeous and practical for a little (short!) rest after hours of dancing!

WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE NEWLYWEDS?
Had a wonderful honeymoon to Italy and Croatia — now back to work and planning some more travels!

Modern Floral Wedding Invitations

We worked with our friends at Sweet Paper to bring Katherine and Aarons invitations to life. Florals from our Adina suite were letterpressed in blush, a perfect subtle color for an early spring wedding. The fonts pair beautifully to make the suite modern, yet romantic.

Our new Amante design was inspired by the sleek Parrish Art Museum venue, tonal & tailored menswear, and contemporary decor.

Below, we’ve reimagined the suite in a more neutral, but still sophisticated color palette.

Custom Tropical Wedding Invitations in Shades of Green

Samantha and Charles worked with our NYC studio to create their beautiful invitation suite. We letterpressed leaves from our Traditional Palm suite in acadia ink, with holly letterpress text. The holly and acadia tones are repeated throughout the suite, complimented by spruce and olive digital inks. A belly band printed with a custom supplied illustration of the iconic benches at John’s Island Club holds the enclosure cards.

Fresh and Romantic Antique Gold Wedding Invitations

We had the opportunity to work with Hannah to bring the invitations for her and Andrew’s wedding to life. A combination of classic block, and modern script fonts keeps the suite fresh. Antique gold letterpress is used throughout, with a classic color antique gold envelope liner coordinating perfectly. A bow in our mother of pearl silk ribbon ties the suite together.
