It’s been a minute since we featured some gorgeous wedding invitations, so let’s jump right back in the saddle with these modern gold and plum watercolor wedding invitations from designer and calligrapher Ash Bush! These stunning invitations highlight her gorgeous lettering and painterly skills. And can we talk about the navy outer envelopes for a moment, please? A sweep of gold paint, modern lettering, and a vintage stamp collage!
From Ash: Talk about dream project! Working with Laura and Doug on their custom watercolor wedding invitations was so life-giving. They were getting married at the Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, a beautiful, botanical oasis. Her colors were jewel-toned berry and deep navy blue, along with some pops of plum and glittery gold. The minute I heard her vision was the minute I fell in love with this suite.
I went very modern and painterly for the style and feel of the whole suite as well as the custom lettering. The outer envelope totally stole the show. They were a beautiful deep blue, and we contrasted that with a bright gold brushstroke across the front. The gold was topped with some white lettering, and the white lettering carried over onto the back return address flap. We also carried the gold lettering over onto the rsvp envelopes, but in a subtle way.
Everything was paired with paint splatters and tons of gorgeous texture. Laura opted for curated vintage stamps on her envelope, and that was totally the cherry on top of an already delicious sundae! To really complete the suite I designed a custom envelope liner in a subtle gradient of her colors, paired with some watercolor texture. And then I went through and hand-speckled the invites and envelopes with gold splatters, totally worth it!
Her day-of details consisted of the most amazing dip-dyed escort cards. I dipped them all by hand in a custom berry ink, and blue watercolor mixture, and then paired it with gold lettering. The event planner then hung them all along with greenery to create a stunning visual at the reception. I also made some custom signs for her food tables and bar settings.
I don’t think I’ll ever stop dreaming about this wedding suite, and the photos from the day show how beautifully it all came together to create a bohemian and modern high-end style.
