Sophisticated Blue Wedding

With a color story in Navy Blue, Dusty Blue and White, my Sophisticated Blue Wedding Inspiration Collage has Nautical, Preppy and Minimalist elements. My Blue “Head Over Heels” Wedding Stationary pairs well with this wedding theme where it’s all about being classy — saying a lot with a little — Understated Elegance.

Valentine’s Day Wedding

A Valentine’s Day wedding isn’t for everyone, but it fits perfect for a bride & groom that want to make a bold romantic statement on their wedding day. And just because “hearts” are sure to be a theme, a Valentine’s Day wedding doesn’t have to be cutesy or cheesy. I created this collage to share my vision for a sophisticated, playful and modern Valentine’s Day Wedding Theme. I selected my “One Sweet Love” Letterpress Wedding Invitation and Response card in Red & White for this inspiration collage.

Peacock Blue Wedding

Peacocks are so beautiful, it makes sense that many brides choose them for their wedding inspiration. Peacock feathers can be used to add drama to bouquets, boutonnieres, up-dos, cakes and more. Their blue, green & gold shades create the perfect bold jewel tone color palette, and lend themselves well to ombré designs. I designed a subtle peacock feather pattern for my “Viva Amore” Wedding Stationary, but brides can amp-up the peacock theme with many of the items in my Peacock Wedding Inspiration Collage below.

Mint & Gold Beach Wedding

I think Mint & Gold is one of the prettiest color combinations. I created this Mint & Gold Inspiration Collage of all the elegant imagery I collected when designing my Mint & Gold “Rolling Waves” Wedding Stationary which is also available in Letterpress. I especially love this wedding invitation in Letterpress because the Gold Pantone ink is Metallic and looks so chic.

“Love Birds” Mint Wedding

My goal for my “Garden of Love” Mint Wedding Stationary was to set the scene for a romantic outdoor wedding with a vibe of “effortless elegance”. The invitation design combines garden imagery, romantic love birds and frilly illustrative details, perfect for a boho-chic wedding. The collage below is filled with beautiful mint photos — the mint colored wedding dress is amazing!

Blue Ombre Beach Wedding

I love how popular ombré (a gradual change from one color or shade into the next) has become, and I especially love it for use in wedding design. It add so much dimension to your chosen color palette. Why use just one blue when you can use every shade in the Caribbean Sea. Floating in the ocean is my favorite place to be, so I designed this beach wedding stationary to feel like it’s underwater —  like you’re looking up at the surface seeing the light shine through.

Rustic Green Wedding

I designed my rustic green & white “Head Over Heels” Wedding Stationary for couples planning a vintage-chic, bohemian wedding day. Think outdoors, succulents, natural woods, feathers, handmade touches and casual elegance. In my inspiration collage below I added accents of pink and lavender.
