Liz + Ryan’s Modern Americana Wedding Invitations

I first came across these lovely invitations while browsing through one of my favorite blogs, Parcel Post.  Luckily, Audrey (the author behind Parcel Post) is good friends with the bride, Liz, and put us in touch so that Liz could share the inspiration behind her invitations.   Liz and Ryan’s invitation suite included the stand-alone invitation, enclosures with accommodation information, directions, and a rehearsal dinner invitation, as well as a matching RSVP card:

From Liz: It was important to us that our wedding felt personal, relaxed and fun – that was our inspiration behind the invitation design. We choose a favorite color combination of red and turquoise because it feels fresh and fun and like summer; it also was perfectly suited to the ocean view at our venue.

The design of the invite was celebratory and informal, signaling the laid back vibe of our wedding.  We worked with our stationer Audrey Woollen at Urbanic in Venice, CA, to order the Classic Cowboy invitation design from the Hello! Lucky letterpress studio.  Audrey is the consummate professional and the entire process was a breeze.

For our escort cards we put name and table number on a stick inside little boxes of kettle corn.  They doubled as our wedding favors.  On the reverse side of the card was one of 10 different shots from our engagement session.  These were a big hit as they served as a take away reminder of the day as well.

Liz also sent a couple of photos of her Save the Date postcards, which I couldn’t resist sharing as well:

I love all the details – from the red and pool color palette to the popcorn bag escort cards, this seems like such a fun and relaxed wedding!  For a couple more pictures from Liz and Ryan’s wedding, be sure to check out Audrey’s post on Parcel Post.  And thanks to Liz for sharing her invitations!
