Our second set of wedding invitations today comes to us from graphic designer and recent bride Amarides. She incorporated a reproduction map of Brooklyn from the 1800s into the wedding invitation suite, along with a fun gold wax seal. Amarides also mixed elegant scrolls and script fonts with modern sans-serifs for a fun mix of classic and modern design elements.
From Amarides: My wedding invitations and save the dates were designed loosely around the theme of “Brooklyn as a destination” since both my husband and I grew up in the Southwest and half of our guests came from out of town. The invitations were designed so that the envelope would open into a map of Brooklyn from the 1800s.
The suite contained an invitation, reply card, and information card. I wanted the experience to feel the way New York truly feels, layering elements of old with new, and classic fonts with modern sans-serifs.
The map and save the dates were digitally printed in Manhattan, and the invitations were letterpress printed in Williamsburg. The wax seal is from a Jessica Hische dropcap.
