So fun to see a Seattle themed wedding invitations I designed last summer for Kendal & Jim in the Seattle Met Bride and Groom magazine. I finally got my hands on the newest edition and voila, now I can proudly share it. The main invitation is letterpressed in navy and yellow ink on eco friendly paper. I love how it turned out and can’t wait to share more. You can view more beautiful images from this wedding here.

A quick sneak of the day-of-wedding stationery for the wedding this weekend. It’s been a crazy, fast turn around but I’m happy we made the deadline! My favorite designs from this wedding are the unique, square place cards. I absolutely can’t wait any longer to see more images from this wedding ;)
Have you heard of split ink? I haven’t until a few months ago when I spotted some inspirations on Pinterest. Of course, I had to try it! Ombre has been such an influence in fashion I had to try it on paper. Perfect project came along and voila! The most awesome ombre gala invitations are here. They are slightly larger than standard invitation (A8) as I felt the floral illustrations and the amount of text needed some room to breath.
I designed the invitations to be printed with a split ink fountain using yellow and red inks which blended to a bright orange in the middle – check them out below, the results are stunning. To maximize the drama I paired them with orange vellum envelopes and really love how they grab the the attention.
I’m so excited to finally share this wedding I designed that’s in the pages the Spring/Summer issue of Seattle Bride! Last year I had the honor of designing save the dates cards, invitations and programs for my dear friend Beth and her husband Nate. Unfortunately, only Save the Dates made it into the magazine. Designing them was a bit of a challenge, because the wedding was so far away and we hadn’t really envisioned what the invitation suite would look like yet. All we knew the rest of the wedding stationery had to be letterpress. Soon, I’ll post the rest of the suite but for now you can read more about the wedding here.
