Lauren and James gave our Ravenna design a sweetly romantic makeover for their Valentine’s Day nuptials. Their palette of charcoal and dusty pink letterpress inks and rose gold shine foil highlighted hand calligraphy accents and a coordinating letterpress printed pocketfold. We loved the delicate sophistication of these elegant wedding invitations.

Two of our new designs for 2015 – Cordelia by Kelle McCarter and Blush by Mariel Mirra – were featured recently by Four Seasons Weddings! The feature highlighted one of our favorite ways to customize: hand lettering. Blush features hand calligraphy accents by Elizabeth Hardin, while Cordelia features some of Kelle’s own Maura styled calligraphy accents. Many thanks to Four Seasons for including us in this great round-up!
This colorful customization of our Nautilus design stylishly sets the tone for Carolyn and Nicholas’ Caribbean destination wedding. A beachy color palette of coral and cobalt letterpress inks and tawny matte foil was used on the invitations and accessory cards that included a weekend itinerary and packing suggestions for guests. Our tavish patterned envelope liner was the finishing touch on these beach wedding invitations.

We love our Dash design for any less formal but still elegant affair. Erin and Jonathan didn’t stray far from the original design but did accent the design’s motifs in gold matte foil and added our simple lace patterned liner, adding just enough flair to their black and gold wedding invitations.

Nina celebrated her sixteenth birthday in style with a semi-formal party for friends at The Musikfest Café. She customized our always edgy, always bold Fugue design in a fun and flashy color palette of regalia letterpress ink and indigo shine foil. Regalia edge painting finished off these funky and dramatic sweet sixteen invitations.

For their recent wedding at the Vanderbilt Mansion on Fisher Island, Andrea and Steven customized our Rose design by replacing the floral motif with the hand-illustrated peacock feathers from our extensive collection. Rose gold shine foil and regalia letterpress ink were an elegantly cool combination, while a custom monogram and letterpress printed pocketfold added decorative flair to these art deco wedding invitations.

Our Irving design is a perennial favorite for modern couples looking for formal wedding invitations without the frills. Lauren and Andrew wanted gold wedding invitations for their winter wedding and opted for a neutral and sophisticated palette of gold shine foil and taupe letterpress ink. For a touch of fun (and more shine!) they added a tiny gold heart to each card.

Designed with a romantic, Bohemian bride in mind, Brenda Fox’s new Arrowhead design is equal parts rustic, youthful, and pretty. For an Arrowhead wedding, the bride and her gals would definitely don floral crowns. Unique indie touches like a macrame ceremony backdrop and feathery boutonnières would make their way to the scene as well. Last but not least – a naked cake topped with fresh flowers.
