These beautiful watercolor wedding invitations from Caroline at Lovely Paper Things kind of defy genre descriptions, which seems appropriate for invitations reflecting the love of two opposite personalities! The invitations combine custom calligraphy with hand painted floral elements and abstract watercolor patterns. And I love that the invitation features a favorite poem printed on the reverse side!
From Caroline: Some couples just have such an incredible spark that you can feel it from miles away. And oh my goodness, Kyle and Dustin are one of those amazing, wonderful, and kind couples who are truly meant to be together. During one of our initial conversations Kyle mentioned that she & Dustin loved both art & unusual juxtapositions in the world around them. While brainstorming concepts for their suite, we fell in love with the concept of The Art of Opposites, which became the heart & soul of the design.
Kyle, a city girl from Dallas & Dustin, a country boy from Montana came from two very different worlds. But like contrasts in art and nature, sometimes opposites create the most breathtaking combinations and complements. Their stunning suite incorporates custom calligraphy, hand painted floral designs, and unique abstract watercolor paintings in the most lush antique plum inspired color palette.
The double-sided invitation includes a custom art print & a quote we found that perfectly ties everything together:
“We are sun & moon, dear friend; we are sea & land.
It is not our purpose to become each other;
it is to recognize each other.
To learn to see the other & honor him for what he is:
Each the other’s opposite & complement”
It was a truly magical suite that makes my heart so happy, for a marvelous couple! Cheers to opposites attracting!
Thanks so much Caroline!
