Kristina + Brock’s Modern Black and White Wedding Invitations

These invitations from Kristina at Lovely Morning are just beautiful – the ribbon, the honeycomb pattern, the blind impression, the calligraphy, it all just works so well together…




Invitations designed by Kristina and printed by Aardvark Press – with gorgeous calligraphy by Jenna Hein.  I love the contrast of the white calligraphy on black envelopes!  You can follow the entire process here, here, and here.

Flourishing Penguin

My name is Ashley and I’m the designer and founder of Flourishing Penguin, a boutique studio for custom wedding invitations and other personal stationery. My love for all things design started as a young child. I was constantly drawing and making things. I attended the University of Virginia where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art with a concentration in oil painting. After sometime in the real world, I realized that my creative juices weren’t flowing and I went back to school and earned my Master’s Degree in Interior Design.

I spent twelve years as the Creative Director for a web and graphic design company and then spent three years as an event planner. Being involved in the wedding industry solidified my passion for beautiful paper. After designing all the paper materials for my own wedding, I knew I had finally found my creative calling. My love of color, typography, paper and calligraphy all came together into one realized vision.

I love the process of design: the excitement of a new project, the exploration of different concepts, the refinement of the final selection and the marvelous end result. I love the unique challenges of each and every project and every client. Combining watercolor, hand drawings, calligraphy, custom monograms and crests, whimsical details and different printing techniques, each suite becomes a special memento and sets the tone of the day. These personalized details can be carried through into other day-of elements such as programs, menus, escort cards, welcome notes and more!
