I love working with a bride who knows what she wants. My Chesapeake Bay bride, Megan, had a very clear vision of her wedding stationery but needed my help to make her vision come to life. She wanted some vintage navigation elements combined with modern calligraphy and simplicity.
She loved the look of “messy” calligraphy but said that her wedding was “still a formal event so I want to come off that way.” We found the perfect font to achieve the look she wanted—sophisticated and not at all cutesy.
Modern and simple stripes adorn the invitation’s backside and I reused the stripes for custom wasabi tape to seal her envelopes. Her big day will take place overlooking Chesapeake Bay so we also lined the envelopes with a map of the Bay.
A hand drawn illustration of a compass on the response card married (pun intended!) the modern and vintage aesthetic.
