Happy Monday everyone! I’m thrilled to be starting the week with these gorgeous hand lettered wedding invitations from Molly Jacques. I love Molly’s whimsical calligraphy and illustration work, so it’s no surprise that she would produce such beautiful wedding invitations! Molly collaborated with the bride, a former designer and art director, who provided the overall art direction and produced the invitation design. Molly also provided hand lettering for the bride and groom’s wedding website. Stunning!
From Molly: This invitation was inspired by my sketchbook drawings and was a collaboration between myself and the bride, Lindsay Keach. Lindsay’s wedding will take place on a farm in Kentucky, so she really wanted a fun and illustrated feel to her wedding stationery.
The invitation suite and stationery was letterpress printed on white paper with gray and yellow inks. Their wedding logo was also created into a return address stamp to use with their stationery. Lindsay created the overall design aspects, including the belly band and textile pattern for the RSVP.
From Lindsay: Molly’s lettering is just amazing – it is exactly what I envisioned for our casual farm wedding, and she was willing to work with me to meet an incredibly tight deadline. The blessing (and curse) of being a former designer is that I had a strong vision for our invitations and was able to create many of the supporting elements and produce the suite myself. Molly’s handiwork really brought it all to life. Our friend Rocket Caleshu at San Francisco Center for the Book lovingly letterpress printed everything on pillowy Holyoke paper. The vintage Kentucky stamps, found on Etsy ages ago and squirreled away, were one of my favorite little touches.
Lindsay and Molly also worked together on Lindsay + Steve’s wedding website, which features Molly’s hand lettering, Lindsay’s design, and Jenifer Wofford‘s illustration of the couple. The site was programmed by Max La Riviere-Hedrick from Futurpruf.
Beautiful! Thanks Molly and Lindsay!
