foil stamped watercolor wedding invitations and announcements

Katie and Jayson worked with our friends at Shindig Paperie to create these foil stamped watercolor wedding invitations for their Florida wedding. Our Glamorous Swash design in a soft palette of sea mist and rose gold foil was used throughout their stationery suite, from their invitations and reply cards to their rehearsal dinner invites and ceremony programs. They chose our Bradley design for their ‘happily ever after celebration” in Arkansas the following month, using the same palette and hand calligraphy seen throughout both suites.

Bella Figura featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Summer 2017

It’s always special to be featured in an issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, but when the real wedding feature happens to be for an editor of the magazine? Well, that’s just the icing on the cake. We were thrilled to work with Katie on the invitations for her Shelter Island wedding last September. Katie and her husband Samuel chose a botanical theme for their wedding to reflect the wild nature of the island, and included a variety of flora and fauna motifs featuring native animals and plants that would be in season in late summer.  Katie shared that “everything featured was actually on the island, with the exception of the blue cranes, a nod to Samuel’s last name.” For the invitation suite, we letterpress printed the invitations and reply cards, and digitally printed the back of each card to include vintage artwork featuring insects and leafy botanicals. Katie’s mother calligraphed the invitation envelopes, which featured a vintage floral print envelope liner and vintage postage stamps. To read more about Katie and Samuel’s Shelter Island wedding, be sure to head over to Martha Stewart Weddings, or pick up the summer 2017 issue!

bold + colorful geometric couples shower invitations

We have our friends at Prickly Pear Press in Midland, Texas to thank for these geometric couples shower invitations based on our Briolette design. Rose gold foil was paired with a palette of blues and greens for a look that was gender-neutral enough for the bride and the groom. A foil stamped envelope liner in rose gold added another trace of shine to this bold customization.
