Thanks to Stephanie for sharing these beautiful blue letterpress invitations that she designed for her wedding this past Memorial Day weekend. Stephanie and David’s wedding was held on the beach in Ocean City, and the reception was at the Ocean City Yacht Club. The couple wanted their invitations to reflect their wedding’s nautical beach location in a more subtle, sophisticated way. I love how Stephanie used different shades of blue and an elegant, undulating script font, both of which lend the wedding suite a nautical feel without the need for any of the nautical icons often found in ocean-themed invites.
Other highlights from this gorgeous letterpress suite include fun, typographic envelope liners – an exciting surprise for the invitees, embossed navy envelopes (love!), and blue edge painted letterpress invitations that are pure eye candy. Letterpress printing was done by Boxcar Press, but much of the suite was a do-it-yourself labor of love for Stephanie, who was inspired to open a freelance wedding invitation design studio after finishing her own invitation project.
