Modern Organic Wedding Invitations

Last July Sweet Paper teamed up with Kayla Teague from Simply Gorgeous Events for a styled photo shoot at Mission Brewery. Kayla provided an inspiration board, filled with lush organic greenery and moody shades of black and gold. Taking inspiration from Kayla’s vision, our shop owner Theresa designed a modern organic wedding invitation suite. The invitation was simple, with bold typography, while the envelope liner and reply card included watercolor greenery to bring in a softer, organic element. Black envelopes with white hand calligraphy added just the right amount of drama! Coordinating menus, place cards and a bar sign carried the design throughout the reception set up. We think Kayla’s vision came to life beautifully!

Nautical Wedding Invitations

29785_A11A0220-1024x683

We had so much fun working with lovely bride-to-be Anne and her darling Mother on this wedding invitation suite, we were thrilled to see it featured on Bella Figura’s blog! With San Diego Bay as the backdrop for their wedding, Anne and Ben opted for a seaside nautical theme for their wedding invitations. We helped them customize the Mulberry design by adding anchors, shells and nautical rope motifs. Custom calligraphy by Kelle McCarter adds flirty accents throughout the design while navy letterpress and gold foil keep it classy. We think it all came together beautifully!

Elegant Gold Wedding Invitations

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.
