New wedding invitations inspired by coastal New England’s most iconic landmarks
We had the pleasure of creating six exclusive suites with our friend Heidi Daniels of Parchment Fine Papers in Nantucket and The Customs House in Wellfleet, Massachusetts – and now we can share them with you!
Chadwick was imagined for a classic black tie wedding at The Wauwinet, a luxury hotel nestled on the shores of Nantucket Island. A timeless palette of black letterpress and gold foil is complemented by a custom, hand-drawn duogram and elegant vintage Nantucket artwork featuring ships and maps to honor the island’s history. Beveled, gold foil edging and a vellum wrap adorn the save the date to set the tone for an elegant celebration.
A bohemian, autumn beach wedding was the inspiration for the Westmoor suite. Floral illustrations of bold bouquets filled with succulents, hellebores, garden roses, anemones, and ranunculus show off a deep jewel toned palette in shades of of plum, cranberry, sage, and copper. An illustration of an iconic Nantucket Lightship basket filled with flowers on the events card is a special nod to Nantucket.
Nantucket Harbor was the main inspiration for the Dockside suite. As you sail into the harbor, you are greeted with a skyline of church steeples and historic sea captain’s homes. A hand-illustrated rendering of the harbor takes center stage on the main invitation while crisp blues and traditional fonts give give this suite a classic, tailored look.
The maritime-themed Compass suite was inspired by vintage maps and Nantucket’s famous Gardiner’s Corner mural. In fact, the mural is featured on the envelope liner and the duogram on the invitation and save the date was created from its historic compass motif. The Nantucket Whaling Museum, where we imaged this couple having their reception, inspired the petite whale motif used throughout the suite. Moody blues, representative of the sea, and tawny foil, mimicking the light of the North Star, pair perfectly in this seafarer’s dream suite.
The closing days of summer in Nantucket were the inspiration behind the Lighthouse suite. The colors are a bit cooler and slightly muted making this entire set feel soft and sweet. A hand-painted watercolor map, highlighting iconic landmarks of Nantucket, sets the perfect mood for a local couple’s big day!
The Sailor suite was envisioned for a wedding set back on the mainland where sailing is still the heart and soul of the people. Nautical illustrations of sailboats, buoys, lobsters and anchors are playfully used throughout the set. With carolina blue and navy letterpress, along with a fresh modern layout, you can almost feel the wind in your hair.
