Gray + gold modern calligraphy wedding invitations

custom wedding invitations featuring hand calligraphy

We created these custom wedding invitations for Kate and Brett’s springtime wedding at the lush and romantic Butterfly Lane Estate in Montecito, California. Our juniper liner pattern served as inspiration with a small motif pulled from the pattern to accent each card.  Nicole Black’s hand calligraphy added an organic feel that complimented the garden-inspired liner palette and jute envelopes.

Lisa and Sue hosted a fun filled wedding weekend for their close family and friends at Glenmere Mansion, an intimate venue in New York’s Hudson Valley.  They chose our Colette calligraphy wedding invitations and customized the design by switching to a vertical layout.  A detailed itinerary was included along with a “what to pack” list that utilized icons from our extensive motif library. A vintage Manhattan map lined the envelopes in an ode to the nearby city.
