Equestrian Wedding Invitation + Calligraphy Inspiration

I have some more inspiration to share with you today – this time in the form of beautiful equestrian-inspired wedding invitations and calligraphy from Kara Anne Paper & Lettering! Kara collaborated with the ladies of Southern Posies to create pretty paper goodies inspired by the Kentucky Derby, from invitations to escort cards and menus. I love the use of copper calligraphy throughout the suite, so gorgeous!

From KaraThis Kentucky Derby-inspired wedding paper was so much fun to design! Having a love for horses since I was a little girl, I knew right away I would enjoy every second of this equestrian inspiration shoot, which took place at the beautiful Stables at Russell Crossroads in Alexander City, Alabama.

When Crystal Strickland with Southern Posies described her vision for the florals and overall design theme I knew I wanted to create illustrated elements with a horse theme and a rustic chic feel. I designed a casual invitation suite on an eco-friendly cream color paper with a mix of copper calligraphy and block lettering for the envelopes.

The thank you card with the couple’s last initial was inspired by the shape of a horseshoe and the bold yellow roses used in the bridal bouquet.

The menus were inspired by race flags, printed on a textured eco-friendly paper and completed with a copper satin ribbon.

The entry table included horse stamped muslin bags with blackberries (Kentucky’s state fruit), little whiskey favors for the men, and green apples for the horses. The welcome sign is copper calligraphy on a brown paper.
