Maya & Tim - color and design just stack up

Maya and Tim's modern, botanical letterpress invitation suite vibrantly captured the essence of their diverse wedding events, showcasing custom-designed illustrations that each held a story of their own.

Drawing inspiration from the warm colors in the stunning landscapes of Palo Alto, the stacked invitation suite was brought to life with a palette of turmeric yellow, deep burgundy, olive green, chocolate brown, and tan. While each of their three weekend events had its own theme and color palette, the invitations worked harmoniously together mirroring the atmosphere and colors that surrounded Maya and Tim's special moments.

The heart of the invitation suite lay in the hand-drawn botanical illustrations adorning each piece. The lemon motif on the welcome dinner invitation referenced  Meyer lemon trees growing outside their home, while the wedding ceremony invitation showcased an olive branch from their event decor, and the reception invitation boasted a majestic California Oak tree beneath which they'd exchange their vows. These illustrations brought a touch of natural beauty to each event, symbolizing growth, harmony, and the beginning of a new life together.

The reply card doubled as a letterpress-printed coaster marrying beauty and functionality, a perfect representation of the couple's thoughtful approach to their wedding details.
