Colorful Boho Wedding | Ashley + Thomas

watercolor floral invitation

It’s about time we blogged this particular wedding from 2017! It’s absolutely one of our favorites we ever worked on, and this suite still blows my mind sometimes - it’s hard to believe I was lucky enough to create something so fun and unique!

The bride, Ashley, has some design experience herself, and is incredibly fashionable, so she was inspired by textiles and patterns for her wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden. We painted these mod tropical flowers in bright colors to create the background pattern for her suite, and paired it with some ikat patterns for a mix and match boho dream.

Upon seeing her proofs, Ashley said those magic words that I always want to hear: “Can we add some more patterns?” I was more than happy to oblige!

We kept things extra simple on Thomas + Ashley’s monogram, with the hexagon and a modern font, with lots of white space around it. The script font is a favorite of ours (you can purchase it here if you like!), and this was actually my first use of it in an invitation suite.

The invitation was topped off with white printing, mix-and-match calligraphy addressing, a die-cut details card, and of course - custom postage stamps featuring one of our floral watercolor designs.

Needless to say, Ashley and Thomas were equally excited for their day-of goods. We designed pieces for everything from welcome bags, to coffee favors, watercolor wash escort cards, door hangers, and even water bottle labels! You could say that this couple’s entire wedding was #onbrand - just the way we like it!

Geoff Rivers captured the day perfectly with this editorial wedding photography and moody style.

Our prices have changed since, but we also featured this invitation suite in a post called What do Wedding Invitations Actually Cost, where we outline all the costs associated and how we charged for them. You can also purchase our entire Print + Paper Vendor Guide that we used to print and produce this entire suite - white printing, gold foil, double-thick papers, envelope liners, etc.
