A Peek into the Studio – Spring Wedding Invitations

As I sit here, the day after New Years has passed,  the studio stoop is covered in snow, with about another foot on the way.  You can imagine how excited I am to write this post about light and bright, Spring-worthy wedding invitations from our archives.  These are just a handful of my favorites whose details, each in very different ways communicate a Spring wedding (Spring as we know it in the US of course)!

First I’m reliving a lovely art shoot we produced to introduce the quintessential Spring pattern in collaboration with Envelopments.  This lively, fresh, open weave pattern is aptly named Trellis! See it come alive in the film below:

Danialle’s suite featured a hand sculpted bloom reminiscent of a Magnolia bloom.  We layered a custom watercolor pattern of sketchy floral and stripes of the same on the response envelope liner.  The fluffy yellow flower center and fuchsia stamens took this look right over the edge of wonderful.

Lucky for us we were given the chance to play with her invitation artwork more when creating the custom menus, table numbers and escort cards!

Zeina’s Chinoiserie suite was built from the most lavishly painted, petite Cherry Blossoms!  Additions of sweet feathered friends and a birdcage scream a Spring vibe with the whisper of a watercolor paintbrush.

Charlotte took the obviously Baroque subject matter of an ornate frame, decorative swirls and a chandelier and gave them a decidedly Spring spin with richly painted pink peonies and a pastel color palette.

More vibrant but still reminiscent of a Spring day’s glory, this suite features white, blush and fuchsia hand painted peony blooms on shimmer gold cardstock.

This vintage textures inspired wedding invitation features the most stunning of soft an shimmery color palettes.  From our Vintage Orchid Pattern Collection, the main orchid-like shape and swirls are hand pressed onto each invitation.  We then added graceful brushstrokes of shimmery blush and white inks against an ecru shimmer cardstock.

So what am I up to?

Recovering from a joyous Christmas with friends and family and planning a trip to Italy that the hubby surprised me with!  Any suggestions on where to go and what to do, please??
