These rustic woodland watercolor wedding invitations from Amanda at Wide Eyes Paper Co. are proof that invitations can be rustic and quirky at the same time! With custom portraits of the bride and groom and watercolor imagery of the Lake Tahoe wedding venue, this whimsical suite was the perfect way to invite family and friends to a destination wedding in the mountains!
From Amanda: Rustic wilderness and vibrant hues of green and blue were the inspiration behind this whimsical watercolor Lake Tahoe invitation suite. We worked closely with Gillian and Matt to capture the vision for their wedding stationery. They wanted to invite all of their family and friends to their destination wedding in Lake Tahoe in a quirky, unique, and non-traditional way. We took this challenge and executed it with custom watercolor imagery, whimsical typography, and bright pops of color.
We painted custom watercolor scenery on the main invitation to capture the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe. The invitation envelopes were also lined with the custom watercolor scenery and addressed in a complementary font. We also painted custom watercolor portraits of Gillian and Matt that were incorporated throughout the invitation suite, from the save the dates to the RSVP cards – even custom water bottles given to guests as wedding favors!
Keeping with this bright and cheery theme, we paired the invitations with a pomegranate colored envelope. Lastly, we created a custom monogram that was engraved on wood circles, which were used to assemble the main invitation and coordinating paper goods neatly into the envelope.
