Michelle and Tony are planning a St. Croix destination wedding…

I met Michelle and Tony at a Bridal Expo Chicago show, they were looking for something “different” that would describe the soft, beachy, romantic feeling they were wanting their guests to feel when they received their special wedding invitations. After listening to their vision, we took off with the corals and pinks, swirling around to create one of a kind garden roses. The wedding will be held at the Carambola Beach Resort, carambola is star fruit. Did you know the star fruit has a pretty pink flower tip to the plant like the brighter pink cluster flower in the invitation’s artwork?…we do our homework.

Inspiration and Stationery:

Beachy: starfish and drift wood

Colors: Peach, Coral, Pink, and Gray

Theme: Beach and Romantic but also FUN. We had fun with the wording, the couple wanted it to be “personal and not the dry text that most people receive in a wedding invitation.” It is so fun to work with clients that like “out of the box” ideas.

Design elements: While mostly we stuck to floral images, we needed to give Tony a little brake. We created a watercolor stripe for the inside, that added pop when they guests opened the suite folder. We love to mix up patterns and styles in our art pieces.
