Watercolor + Anemone Wedding Invitations

I seriously love everything about David and Cheri’s wedding invitations — from the watercolor details to the anemone illustration to the small emblems repeated throughout the invitation suite:


I had seen the photos from this handmade wedding a while back, but loved looking through them again and noticing all the little ways that the wedding invitations served as a preview of the beauty and fun to come on the big day!  Check out more invitation and wedding photos here and here.

I received the most amazing surprise and the best news I've had all week when I found out that Oh So Beautiful Paper was included on a list of the Top 50 interior and design blogs in the world by Times Online.  We made #36 — yay!  As you can imagine, it's a huge honor to be included, particularly among such great company and so many of my favorite blogs!  I can't thank Times Online, particularly author Lynne Robinson, enough for thinking of me.  Check out the full list right here!  If you're finding us for the first time via Times Online, welcome!

Gilded Wedding Invitations with a French Twist

One of the things that I love about this time of year is how sparkly things become — from the twinkle of Christmas lights to the metal tones of holiday decorations and so much more.  So when Rachel from Benign Objects wrote to let me know about these gilded wedding invitations that she recently designed for her friend Madeline, they seemed perfect for an elegant and classic late fall or winter wedding:


Rachel started with Madeline’s original inspiration of an elegant and classic design with a french twist (as an homage to Savannah, where the wedding took place) and created a beautiful wedding invitation suite as well as an accompanying ceremony program and guest guide.  Rachel used foil stamping for the gold detailing, with the remaining materials digitally printed to stay within Madeline’s budget.

Check out Benign Objects for a bunch of additional photos.  Thanks Rachel!

Kellie + Chris’s Whimsical Illustrated Wedding Invitations

How adorable is this quirky and beautiful letterpress invitation suite — complete with a hand-drawn illustration of the bride and groom?  Courtney from Flush Designs worked with the groom (who created the main illustration) to design the invitation around the illustration, and the invitation suite was then printed by the talented folks over at Spark Letterpress:


So sweet!  I love that invitation design incorporated pretty floral details and soft colors — like the pink in the reception card — even though the wedding is taking place in late January.  You can check out a few more photos over at the Flush Designs blog.
