Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Last year at this time I was busy working on these watercolor wedding invitations for Nancy and Elias’ destination wedding. (It was featured on Martha Stewart here.) These are the most labor intensive invitations I’ve ever made (see some outtakes) but are also my favorite thing I’ve designed. I have to give credit to my talented studio manager Alexis Birkmeyer who printed and painted and duplexed each one by hand (she is the most detail oriented person I know-perfect for letterpress.) The invitations were two sided: English on one and Greek on the other. and several parts were duplexed together which means you take two sheets of paper and glue them. It was all wrapped up together with pretty silver string. Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper featured them today with all the details. Go here to read more.

ps: Here are some watercolor business cards and my watercolor Christmas card.

    truly, the craftsmanship of these invitations were absolutely tops! the hand, the weight, the color wash, the little booklet! as labor intensive as these were to make (im so sorry!) is as easily and facile as you handled the production, jordan. you and alexis were a seamless team. i didnt worry a single second about how these beautiful creations would turn out. it was as easy as dreaming. thank you for such a beautiful keepsake (no one wanted to send in the rsvp b/c they wanted to keep the set!).

    These are so AWESOME.

    I love them because they are simple and elegant yet sooo stunning!!

    If I would have had more time, I would have loved to do something like this for our wedding invitations. I ended up still making my own, but I still want to make some watercolor cards!

    Just gotta figure out what for! haha

    These are exquisite! Are you going to do a ‘how-to’ for the watercolor wash?! *fingerscrossedwithacherryontop*
