Originally designed with a giant hibiscus flower, KIKI’s large square letterpress invitation is a favorite for Hawaiian, Caribbean, beach and destination weddings.

As two passionate photographers we decided to try to turn our mutual obsession with photography into a theme. Since both Trevor & I enjoy shooting film on the side for personal projects it seemed only natural that we integrate this somehow into our day_TREVOR.
The kind folks at Gmund paper recently sent some samples of their freshest lines and one stock in particular jumped out at me — this amazing faux wood-grained paper! Talk about possibilities… With a little hand drawn type, a few vintage engravings, and a custom monogram “carved” into the paper, it feels just right for a heartfelt affair.

I designed this invitation for an event that was inspired by stunning destinations around the world. Costa Rica was one of the chosen destinations where the lush rainforest and the fun, vibrant patterns of the Costa Rican culture inspired the design. For the invitation I created a hand stitched book with three layers of pattern, the middle layer being printed on vellum for added depth and interest_NICHOLE.
I’m a long-time fan of the beautiful art of paper cutting, from greeting cards to artwork to ketubahs and marriage certificates. So when artist Naomi Sheik sent over her collection of stunning woodland paper cut wedding invitations, well, let’s just say it was love at first sight_NAOMI.

This wedding invitations inspired by classic rock n’ roll, sent over by Molly from Paisley Quill. The subtle floral background helps to soften the bold text, creating an overall feel that is both elegant and a lot of fun. And with only two pieces and an envelope comprising the entire suite, Molly was able to pack a big statement into a sweet and simple invitation package!
Kendall and Lance were wonderful to work with. They both have such unique styles, it was easy to be inspired by them. Their colors are gray and navy, and their wedding (it’s coming up soon!) will have vintage styling. They got engaged by the Savannah River here in Augusta, hence the river/tree imagery. They pretty much let me have free reign, smiling serenely when I babbled on about deconstructed envelopes and hand-lettering and screen printing.
You know it’s going to be a fun wedding when the invitation arrives in a Coca-Cola bottle full of sand and smells of coconut!!

Ernesto and Rocio celebrated their wedding in Belize on a small Caribbean Island San Pedro. This is their invitation: "Passport" with their photo in it and an invitation message and a "boarding pass" for reservation in an envelope. I absolutely loved their creativity.
Both the bride and groom are from Rajasthan where puppet shows in traditional dress are quite well known.Hence, portraying the new couple as ‘puppets’ sounded like a nice idea and became the central theme of their wedding poster invite. This was done in a bit of hurry as much of my time got lost because of preparing for Comic Con India_Kshiraj Telang.

In the Greek language, there is an expression that uses the word “hang” in order to say “marry”. So, traditionally, when the father of the bride says “I will hang them”, he means that he will tie the couple with the holly bond of marriage.

Jeff and Lisa are an amazing couple; hilarious, attractive, and totally crazy.They sent me some examples of designs they’d liked in part, including some avian imagery, natural textures and so forth. I did my best to distill their ideas into a modern design that complimented their style and personality.The birds are a tribute to the Charles and Ray Eames design. It works perfectly with the hand drawn wood grain.
