Today we move from the French countryside to the mountains of California! These wedding invitations from Jessie and Jen of Shipwright & Co. were created for a wedding just outside of Joshua Tree National Park and feature one of my favorite details: constellations! The invitations also feature tons of hand lettering, illustrated details, and a vivid teal and coral color palette. So pretty!
From Jessie and Jen: This wedding suite features a desert night sky with the couple’s astrological sign constellations (Virgo and Pisces) prominently glowing above the boulders at their actual wedding venue. The invitation, RSVP, and map are inspired by their wedding location just outside of Joshua Tree National Park. Most of the text is hand lettered except the text in teal on the invitation, which is a font I made from my handwriting.
Each piece of the suite was custom designed to reflect the couple’s style, romance, and humor. They wanted to kindly ask their friends and family with children to leave their little ones behind, hence the kid wrapped in a snake. The text on the RSVP read, “We love your kids but so does the desert wildlife. Please leave them at home.” The invitation and RSVP are letterpress printed in vivid teal, coral-rose, and warm gray. The map is conventionally printed in full color on matching pearl white paper.
Thanks Jessie & Jen!
