Magnolia Blooms / Oh So Beautiful Paper / Nashville Wedding

SO excited to share this post. It was an incredible collaboration between some of the best minds out there and we worked so hard as a team to bring these designs to life. The bride and her mother came to us with magnolia dreams and we did our best to make them come true! See this suite featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper

The Save the Date was letterpressed in blush + gray and we created a custom illustration of Cheekwood, where the reception took place. They loved the idea of a bookmark so we created this magnolia pattern to wrap around the card and be a keepsake for guests.

We also designed this holiday time engagement party invitation. Same feel, but with a festive hint of gold foil and a colorful liner. 

Then for the big day we revealed our plans for a custom magnolia wrap that held all the details together. Inside this luxe invitation was letterpresses + gold foiled and edge painted. Such a gorgeous impact of just how special this wedding would be. The wrap even had a pocket that tucked all the detail and rsvp info neatly behind. The magnolia tree we illustrated was repeated on the custom wax seal.

Even the blush from the save the date made an appearance on the rsvp card and envelope. We really wanted to the suite to feel like you were revealing another level of detail as it unveiled!

All these details carried over into the day of items as well. I love the cohesiveness to this wedding. We got to flex our creative muscles and create outside the box for sure!

Nashville Map Save the Date / Francis wedding

Sometimes you just click with a client and this was definitely one of those occasions where it all just came together so smoothly. This concept of a modern monogram mixed with a local map, and vintage postage was right up our alley. We created a custom map backer and envelope liner that included locations special to the bride & groom.

The illustrations give such a personal tough to the save the date and add some whimsy. The cherry on top is the collection of vintage postage we sourced for the envelope. It fit perfectly, had such a fun mix of color, and really wowed guests. Stay tuned for the upcoming invitation!

Downtown Nashville Save the Date

We designed this suite to give guests a little taste of the Music City vibe. When we met with the bride she fell in love with white printing on kraft paper. Very fitting for the Country Music Hall of Fame venue they're using. We went to work illustrating the downtown skyline and coming up with some fun typography. This invitation included white foil stamping on French speckletone that was duplexed to be extra thick. The final touch was a watercolor cowboy boot we designed to tie around and some killer country western stamps. Had to give it some honky-tonk flair.

Watercolor Crest - Save the Date

I know we're not supposed to pick favorites and all, but this is definitely a favorite. The bride really wanted a one-of-a-kind crest so we incorporated imagery from the Colorado mountains where the wedding will be held.

I love the bright cheerfulness of the crest balanced with the rugged letterpress on the opposite side. The Save the Date card was letterpress printed on wood grain paper, die-cut, and feature a custom illustration of antlers & headdress, along with a wood grain envelope liner. The Native American illustrations give a nod to some of the family heritage & there will be cocktails in a tee-pee on the big day. Hopefully guests are packing their bags already!
