Inspirations – Ten Favorite Takes on Landscapes

Landscapes have long been the Muse of many an artist. From the grandeur of towering peaks to the beautiful calm of a sunlit meadow… nature inspires. For couples, having a location transformed into a painterly scene can set the stage for the big day or tell the story of their journey to that place. From the dramatic to the playful, these invitations have a story to tell and offer a glimpse of what guests will be experiencing. Here’s a few of our favorite examples from some of our outdoorsy brides:

Soft washes of color trail down the mountainside in this watercolor landscape. A charming hand drawn map and bow-wrapped ensemble folder complete the appeal of this simple set. screen_capture_cc229

Utah’s fiery red rock against blue river and sky make for a some strong imagery. Shimmery gold washes soften the set along with a simple layout and design.


Elizabeth’s invite offers an enticingly tropical view down a flower strewn path. We love the whimsy of painted stripes on her envelope liner!screen_capture_cc242
