Modern Nautical Black + White Wedding Invitations

Today I’m loving these crisp black and white wedding invitations from Nicole at Umama.  Nicole drew her inspiration from her favorite Walt Whitman poem, Out of the Ocean, incorporating a sweet anchor pattern in the envelope liner and a bold enlarged stripe pattern.


From NicoleIn this suite, I drew upon the words from Whitman’s poem, Out of the Ocean:

Out of the rolling ocean, the crowd, came a drop gently to me,
Whispering, I love you, before long I die,
I have travel’d a long way, merely to look on you, to touch you,
For I could not die till I once look’d on you,
For I fear’d I might afterward lose you.


I was inspired to create a subtle nautical invite that captured the ocean from Whitman’s point of view, pensive and bold.
The design includes stripes along the bottom, a nautical monogram, and sweet anchors in the envelope liner.




Just lovely!  Thanks Nicole!
