Romantic Wedding Invitations

wedding-invitations-san-diego

This customization of Smock’s Chapman wedding invitation suite was recently featured on their blog! Our bride, Samantha, wanted a soft and romantic invitation suite for her garden wedding. We think the embossed flowers, tawny matte foil and soft pink letterpress all came together perfectly! We then paired her invitation set with a pale grey chevron invitation sleeve to keep her cards together and lined the envelopes with a vintage floral pattern. The end result is stunning if we do say so!

Elegant Gold Wedding Invitations


0762suzannechriswed

We were lucky enough to work with Suzanne and Chris on all of their wedding stationery, from the save the dates to the invitations to her menus and escort cards. Suzanne kept things classic with beautiful typography and simple layouts. For her save the dates we had a little fun and used bright pink. When it came time to work on their wedding invitations and menus, Suzanne opted for elegant gold thermography. The escort cards were hand calligraphed in gold ink by local calligrapher Wendy Ware.
