Happy Monday everyone! Designer Kate Holgate is an absolute master at blending modern and vintage-inspired details, and these wedding invitations are no exception! Kate designed these invitations for a recent wedding in Miami, combining custom patterns inspired by the architectural details of the wedding venue with modern type and color choices. How gorgeous are those blind impression patterns??
From Kate: Dane and Jenn are a lovely couple recently married in Miami. I really enjoyed getting to know them as we collaborated on their invitation suite. Not only were they incredibly gracious, they had impeccable taste and fantastic ideas. The location of the ceremony is a gorgeous historic Italian estate on Biscayne Bay called the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. The villa is a National Historic Landmark bursting with visual inspiration — from beautiful, ornate architectural details to gorgeous flowers and fountains.
Dane and Jenn wanted a sophisticated design that incorporated elements from the past yet still looked modern. To accomplish this, I designed several custom patterns inspired by interior details of the villa (floors, stained-glass windows, tiles) paired with modern typography and hand-written accents. I used a clean color palette of bright white and grays with pops of blush and sea foam green to balance the heavily-textured design.
Boxcar Press did an outstanding job with intricate letterpress work and Miami calligrapher Natalia Otalora added her special touch to the envelopes. I couldn’t be happier with the elegant results. Cheers to Dane and Jenn!
