It’s usually right around this time of year that I begin wishing that I lived in a tropical climate – preferably right on the beach. For now I’ll just have to settle for these gorgeous watercolor and gold foil wedding invitations from Smitten on Paper inspired by the beaches in Miami!
From Amy and the Smitten on Paper team: Katie and Peter wanted the invitation suite for their New Year’s Eve wedding to reflect the surroundings and atmosphere of their amazing venue, a waterfront museum with beautiful gardens and views off the coast of Miami. We worked with Eileen from Beauty in the Making to create a suite that is elegant and breathtaking, combining watercolor, gold foil, and calligraphy.
An artist friend of the couple painted the background, which we scanned in and used in different ways throughout the suite. Each piece is duplexed with a pop of orange paper so they are double thick and then gold foil stamped with a mix of modern type and loose calligraphy.
We love how all of the pieces in the suite create their own sense of movement and really evoke the ocean’s rhythms. The whole project is finished with hand addressed calligraphy envelopes in watercolor hues.
