A Nature Inspired Invitation With A Hand Drawn Crest And Wood Grain Patterning

Each one of our clients comes to us with a unique story. In the case of #CeciBride Nissa and fiance Derrick, their love was solidified when they visited the California Redwood Forest and were taken by the natural elements around them. To them, trees are symbolic of the many facets of their relationship. As artists it was our job to take this inspiration and significance and tell their story through thoughtful design. It was important for us to take all the natural beauty of the surroundings that were so meaningful to the couple and incorporate them into details at their event. With neutral tones like light grey, taupes, and blush, our team put together an invitation that reflected the simple elegance of this charming outdoor wedding.

The clean and classic white envelope was printed with rose gold calligraphy and a custom crest with the couple’s monogram surrounded in a wreath of greenery. Inside the envelope a soft blush liner featured this same enlarged crest in its full hand drawn form. Colored with dark pink and green tones with light pink roses and a bow, this element was the perfect classic adornment with a twist of modern detailing.

Playing off of the bohemian style of the couple, we designed an authentic wood grain pattern for the background of the invitation card. The couple’s crest was featured in the center of the card in gold foil to give a touch of luxury. A blush hand dyed raw silk ribbon was wrapped around the card and closed with a gold wax seal with a rose imprint. On the front, the couple’s names swept across the top in gold foil with blush letterpress for the event details. This invitation suite was one with natural textures and warm hues that set the tone for the couple’s beautiful boho wedding.
