Happy Monday everyone! The week before Labor Day is so tough – it feels like the entire week should be a vacation before we transition into Fall! Luckily, these gorgeous wedding invitations inspired by the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach, Miami from Nichole from Coral Pheasant feel like a virtual vacation. Created for a slightly non-traditional pool party home wedding celebration, the invitations feature a tropical-inspired grasscloth backing and bold black and white striped envelope liner!
From Nichole: Melissa and Robert went about their wedding celebration a little different than most. They celebrated with a close group of family and friends 18 months after their marriage – and birth of their twin boys! Melissa sought the help of Sarah of A Polished Plan and together they conceptualized a South Beach-inspired adult pool party they would host at their home.
The Raleigh Hotel in South Beach Miami – their favorite hotel – provided all the visual cues for this chic event. One look at the hotel and I was delighted! The star of the suite is the two-color letterpress invitation on Crane’s lettra mounted onto grasscloth. The rich brown backer brings interesting texture to the suite, reminiscent of the tree trunks of palms and rattan caning seen in much of the hotel’s furniture. The envelope liners are a nod to the iconic black white striped pool umbrellas and the type design, graphic frames, and bold colors are inspired by the Raleigh Hotel’s branding.
