Intimate vow renewal in Puerto Vallarta featuring our Irving design

Lindsey and Ryan’s intimate vow renewal took place just north of Puerto Vallarta in private community called Real del Mar. Surrounded by family, they celebrated their marriage and each other in one of the most romantic places along the Pacific Coast. We created a digitally printed take on our ever-popular Irving design for their invitations, which were printed in black and pale gray inks. A metallic silver envelope liner added a subtle shimmer to the otherwise minimalist invitation design. Tropical florals in varying shades of pink added vibrant pops of color to the otherwise subdued color palette.
