Wedding Invitations – Sycamore Street Press

Sycamore Street Press is one of my favorite design studios – and I’m looking forward to seeing more of their work at the NSS next week!  When Eva from Sycamore Street Press posted a few of her recent custom wedding invitation projects on her blog earlier in the week, I asked if she’d be willing to share some additional photos and background on the designs.  Even though Eva is literally on her way to the NSS, she was kind enough to send over a bunch of photos – which I couldn’t wait to share with everyone here!  First up, these gorgeous invitations, made for newlyweds Bree and David:

And here’s the background on the design:

For Bree and David, the location of the wedding was an important element in the invitation design.  They were married in a former cathedral turned event center called Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles.  Bree emailed us an inspiration board that included images of the beautiful soaring space inside Vibiana, her cobalt blue wedding shoes, and anthropologie window displays, among other things.

This was so helpful in getting a feel for her aesthetic!  Kristin Mills, who is 1/2 of the creative team behind Sycamore Street Press’s {lark} line, designed the invitations for her and asked that I contribute a little hand lettering for their names on the invite and the monogram used on the invite and envelope.

At Bree’s request, I drew a little map of downtown Los Angeles to help guests get between the reception, hotel, and brunch location, and then Kristin added a few little floral flourishes to incorporate the pattern on the invitation.

After Sycamore Street Press printed the invitations, Bree added a coral string, a coral patterned envelope lining, and a little tag with their initials on it.  Bree also worked with calligrapher Besty Dunlap, who calligraphed the addresses on the invitation envelopes in a dark navy blue ink, and used vintage stamps to complete the invitation suite.

Gorgeous!  I’m completely in love with every detail in this invitation suite – from the color palette to the contrasting typefaces + hand lettering to Betsy’s gorgeous calligraphy.

As if this invitation isn’t enough, I’ve got another one to share – this time a modern invitation suite for newlyweds Ali + Brian:

Eva tells me that Ali and Brian’s wedding invitations were inspired by spring colors and fresh, simple, contemporary design – which definitely comes across in the final design and crisp chartreuse + white palette.  The invitations were also designed by Kristin Mills, from the Sycamore Street Press {lark} collection.

Aren’t these both absolutely gorgeous wedding invitation designs?  Thank you so much Eva, for sending over these photos and sharing the inspiration behind these lovely designs!

  1. Hi Julie! I did, after I received the lettered envelopes back from Betsy. It was easier than I thought it would be! I used the Envelope Liner Template from Paper Source, and just followed the instructions that came with the kit. The liner paper I used came from Paper Source, as well.
