Happy Monday everyone! Â I’m thrilled to be starting the week with these gorgeous hand lettered wedding invitations from Molly Jacques. Â I love Molly’s whimsical calligraphy and illustration work, so it’s no surprise that she would produce such beautiful wedding invitations! Â Molly collaborated with the bride, a former designer and art director, who provided the overall art direction and produced the invitation design. Â Molly also provided hand lettering for the bride and groom’s wedding website. Â Stunning!
From Molly:Â This invitation was inspired by my sketchbook drawingsÂ and was a collaboration between myself and the bride, Lindsay Keach. Â Lindsay’s wedding will take place on a farm in Kentucky, so she really wanted a fun and illustrated feel to her wedding stationery.
The invitation suite and stationery was letterpress printed on white paper with gray and yellow inks. Â Their wedding logo was also created into a return address stamp to use with their stationery. Â Lindsay created the overall design aspects, including the belly band and textile pattern for the RSVP.
From Lindsay:Â Mollyâ€™s lettering is just amazing â€“ it is exactly what I envisioned for our casual farm wedding, and she was willing to work with me to meet an incredibly tight deadline. Â The blessing (and curse) of being a former designer is that I had a strong vision for our invitations and was able to create many of the supporting elements and produce the suite myself. Â Molly’s handiwork really brought it all to life. Â Our friendÂ Rocket Caleshu at San Francisco Center for the BookÂ lovingly letterpress printed everything on pillowy Holyoke paper. Â The vintage Kentucky stamps, found on Etsy ages ago and squirreled away, were one of my favorite little touches.
Lindsay and Molly also worked together on Lindsay + Steveâ€™s wedding website, which featuresÂ Mollyâ€™sÂ hand lettering, Lindsay’s design, andÂ Jenifer Wofford‘sÂ illustration of the couple. Â The siteÂ was programmed by Max La Riviere-Hedrick fromÂ Futurpruf.
Beautiful! Â Thanks MollyÂ and Lindsay!
