Samantha + William’s Illustrated Map Destination Wedding Invitations

I thought I’d continue today’s international theme with these travel-inspired invitations for a destination wedding in Costa Rica from Christine of Heritage+Joy. The invitation suite features beautiful maps of the wedding location, a gorgeous lasercut border along the main invitation, and a passport-style booklet with additional information for wedding guests. So pretty!

From Christine: Samantha and William were married at the end of 2012 at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort in Costa Rica. From the very beginning, they wanted a unique and intricate invitation suite that would also carry through their destination wedding theme. We worked together to create a package that contained the formal invitation and an RSVP postcard, as well as a passport booklet of the weekend’s activities.

An illustrated map of Costa Rica, which is first seen in the enclosure, also adorned the backs of various pieces in the suite. We even turned the monogram of William’s last name, written in Chinese, into a compass on the illustrated maps.

The entire suite was letterpress printed on cotton paper by Czar Press (with the exception of the passport booklet, which was digitally printed on the same cotton paper), and the formal invitation card was lasercut with intricate lace detail, adding a very delicate and feminine touch to the suite, which the bride especially wanted. The whole package is tied together with a pink satin ribbon from Midori Ribbon.
