Watercolour Wedding Invitations

By The Sea
as seen in Wedluxe Magazine – Summer/Fall 2014

Last spring, I had the pleasure of working with an amazingly talented group for a photo shoot that was printed in Wedluxe Magazine and on their blog. After my first photo shoot with this team the year before, I knew that we would create magic…and we did! With Malvina and her team from Fabulous Occasions leading the way and Krista Fox as the photographer, we couldn’t go wrong.

The style for the shoot was “By the Sea” and we wanted to incorporate water, natural elements like driftwood, shades of blue and brown. For the stationery I created several different watercolours to use on the various pieces I was designing. I wanted the font to be very flowy and old fashioned (think of a time when travelling by ship) and all of the stationery had hand torn edges to give it a vintage feel. Custom stamps were created to match the stationery.

I created invitations, reply cards, maps, table numbers, menus, signage and note cards. The note cards were designed to be messages in a bottle that the guests would leave for the couple.

This photo shoot was amazing to be a part of because of the talent of everyone involved; D&D Florals for their unforgettable flowers, White Cakery Co.’s unbelievable cakes, Nicole Richards gorgeous makeup, David Dunkley’s fabulous veils and Tara Fava’s stunning jewellery and the list goes one…. (see the full list below the photos)

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as we enjoyed creating them!
