Melissa + Francisco’s Spanish Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

It’s always a good day when a wedding invitation from Kathryn at Black­bird Letterpress shows up in my inbox.  Kathryn created these gorgeous wedding invitations for an upcoming wedding in Uruguay; the invitation design was inspired by a lighthouse near the wedding venue.  The invitation features the beautiful hand lettering of Betsy Dun­lap (written in Spanish!), and I love that the bride and groom added a wax seal to the envelope prior to mailing the invitations out to their guests!

From KathrynThe bride and groom are getting married in Uruguay.  Melissa, the bride, sent me a few photos of the shore and lighthouse where they were getting married and I designed from there.  The couple are originally from Argentina and Venezuela and live in Miami.  The invitation is written in Spanish in Betsy Dunlap’s beautiful calligraphy.  Melissa also wrote a sweet post about the invitations on her blog showing a beautiful wax seal detail they added to the envelope.

Thanks Kathryn!
