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 Nicole: In 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!

The spearmint blue colour is a really nice touch – cute but still cool and classy!
