We had the most gorgeous weekend here in DC, and with spring just around the corner these magnolia wedding invitations from Brynne at Harken Press seem like the perfect way to start off the week! Created for a spring wedding in Baton Rouge, Brynne drew her inspiration from both the season and the wedding venue, with a sunny yellow color palette and beautiful vintage stamps.
From Brynne: Natalie and Paul are getting married this spring at a charming southern plantation called Magnolia Mound in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The magnolia blossom reoccurs throughout their wedding stationery as a symbol of spring and the venue. I really wanted to capture Natalie and Paul’s creative personalities and the mood of their quaint outdoor southern wedding. My inspiration was Gone With The Wind meets happy spring colors.
Natalie and Paul both have Masters degrees in historical preservation from the College of Charleston in South Carolina, where they met. The vintage stamps that Natalie collected for the postage are a perfect combination of Louisiana and South Carolina landmarks, as well as the couple’s love of architecture and literature. One of their favorite quotes, “Be silly, be honest, be kind.” by Ralph Waldo Emerson is attached to the twine that holds the suite together. I also illustrated the map of Baton Rouge to highlight some of the unique parts of the city, and of course the wedding venue.
The wedding invitation was letterpress printed, while the rest of the suite and save the dates were digitally printed. A great compromise for letterpress lovers on a budget!
