I’m (obviously) a big fan of pink, but I feel like green is kind of having a moment right now – especially this gorgeous shade of deep emerald green! And emerald green looks just completely incredible when paired with crisp white and elegant gold! Inspired by Douglas Fir trees in the Pacific Northwest, these elegant and earthy green and white nature-inspired wedding invitations from Laura of Tuktu Paper Co. feature emerald green letterpress printed text with a blind (no ink) impression pattern of Douglas Fir trees and gold envelope liners. A gold wax seal serves as the perfect finishing touch!
From Laura: I love emulating the beauty of the Pacific Northwest into wedding invitations that I create for couples getting married on Vancouver Island, and this particular suite was no exception. This small, intimate wedding is being held on a beach in Tofino, British Columbia, and the couple’s only guidance was for the design to have two Douglas Fir trees – and that they both love gold and green.
Using extra thick Crane cotton paper to provide a deep blind impression for the Douglas Fir trees gives the invitations a beautiful, tangible quality. I wanted to match the green with a deep gold for an elegant and earthy design. We used hand-dyed gold paper for the envelope liners and a hint of green in the gold wax seal to bring everything together in a thoughtful way.
