I recently had the great opportunity to collaborate with Jen of Swallowfield on wedding invitations for her cousin. I am a huge fan of Jen’s work and own a few of her prints {this is one of my favorites}, so I was quite honored to work with her. The wedding is taking place this Fall in Newburyport, Massachusetts, a little town on the Merrimack River near the Atlantic. Mary, the bride, wanted a design inspired by Fall, community, and the sea. Jen’s drawing is full of amazing details including little houses, flowers, and a sailboat. I want to live in one of those houses!

Once Jen completed the drawing she turned it over to me. I used the entire drawing on the invitation and set the type. I extracted a few details from the drawing for the other pieces in the suite. I used a single flower on the RSVP and two little houses on a flower for the return address, which was on the backside of the RSVP to make it a postcard & the back flap of the envelope. I really love that Mary went for the orange & gray palette, instead of blue as one may assume for seaside wedding. I hope she uses love stamps!

Jen and I had so much fun working on this invitation and hope we have the opportunity to do it again soon. If you want beautiful hand drawn and hand-printed wedding invitations, let us know.
