Tropical Hawaiian Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

I’m still in love with the tropical foliage trend, and what could possibly be a more perfect application of this gorgeous motif than invitations for a wedding in Hawaii?? Anna from Cast Calligraphy created these tropical Hawaiian calligraphy wedding invitations for a sophisticated and modern wedding in Kauai. I’m absolutely loving the delicate letterpress printed palm leaf pattern on the invitation – and of course Anna’s gorgeous calligraphy throughout the suite!

From AnnaWhen Portia and Daniel mentioned their wedding was in Kauai I was immediately brainstorming ideas for their tropical invitation. I had been vacationing there for years and knew the character of the island. I also knew that Portia and Daniel were looking for a sophisticated and modern invitation suite, with simple imagery and clean lines.

We landed on a neutral color palette with hints of yellow and green. The invitations, printed by Birdwalk Press, were letterpress printed lightly with the palm tree leaves in a light buttery yellow color and with the custom calligraphed text on top. The rsvp card was printed digitally on a matching pearl white paper, with a vintage pineapple image to pay homage to the island’s local treasured fruit.

The envelopes matched perfectly and were calligraphed in white ink and addressed to their list of close family and friends. A rubber stamp was made to stamp the return address in white and a custom liner of a banana leaf detail was assembled inside (not shown). I was thrilled with the result and lived vicariously through the bride and groom during their romantic tropical getaway. Congrats Portia and Daniel!
