Beach Wedding Invitations

Seaside_Wedding_Invitation

Marlo and Adam were looking for clean and simple beach inspired wedding invitations for their big day in the Bahamas. The letterpress Breakers design from Bella Figura was the perfect fit! Wanting to keep things understated, we used relaxed fonts and a pale color palette of taupe and light blue with a pop of papaya edge paint. The kraft pocketfold tied it all together and kept their enclosure cards in place.
