Woodland Wedding

I designed my “Back to Nature” wedding stationary for the bride and groom who love the beauty of nature and want to bring that into their wedding day. The playful leaf illustration, hand-crafted font and watercolor painting set the mood for an elegantly rustic wedding. This collection is as much for the mountain biking couple that adores “The Great Outdoors,” as it is for the couple who simply want to be married in the fresh air among the trees and sky. In-line with the wood-grain pattern on the back of the invitation, I included lots of wooden inspiration in my collage.

Navy & Red Nautical Wedding

When I designed my “Heads Over Heels” wedding stationary collection, I wasn’t thinking “Nautical”; but in hindsight, I think my Navy Blue color version is well-suited for a Nautical wedding theme. The pin striping reminds me of seersucker suiting and the script font and graphic elements have curves that are reminiscent of moving water. My inspiration for this collage was a bayside preppy wedding in navy & red, inspired by this quote from Brides Magazine, “Getting married by the sea? Celebrate in nautical style with a patriotic palette and lots of preppy accents.”

Turquoise & Tangerine Beach Wedding

My happiest days are spent at the beach, and this destination wedding collage is inspired by that love for the sea.  I chose the bright and happy Turquoise and Tangerine color palette, because of how happy I feel at the beach.

Nautical Wedding

Whether you’re saying “I do” in New England or the West Indies, this nautical wedding collage can provide inspiration to any seafaring couple. When I decided to do some hand-painting for this wedding stationary, it made perfect sense to paint water with watercolors. I tried to capture the gentle rolling of ocean waters.
