nicole & ryan :: letterpress wedding invitations
Moana Surfrider Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii!
We have actually stayed at this incredible hotel in the summer of 2010 (you can see our blog post here). We did a small squeal of excitement when we heard from Nicole and Ryan that they were to be wed at this historic and incredibly beautiful venue. We had serious envy and it was a beautiful moment of fate.
Their brief to us for the custom design and letterpress print of their wedding stationery, was a design which complimented their soft garden romance with soft pastels and sweet tropical relaxed elegance. We commissioned gorgeous hand lettering and combined this with a serif typeface (in lower case for a sweet relaxed feel) combined with a complimentary lower case script. The design featured a sweet vintage light ivory ink floral illustration and masses of white space which not only allows us to achieve an optimum print impression, but also excludes a air of sweet sophistication.
Their suite included 2 colour invitations and 1 colour information cards bound inside of an outer 100% cotton ivory envelope with our scalloped address labels. Just lovely!
We wish Nicole and Ryan the most beautiful beautiful day in Hawaii in April, and make sure you say hello to Moana for us, we sure do miss her!!
