a nautical wedding

this wedding collection, featured last week on things are better with a parrot, is so pretty and unique:

from the blog:

[The bride and groom] wanted to keep a few particular elements throughout the stationery suite, including a sailboat, doves, a compass rose and a knot. For the invitation I created a custom illustration of a sailboat along with two doves flying by. I created a compass rose & used that on both the RSVP postcard & the two-sided direction card. As the reception was in a different location {& about 45 minutes away} we decided to include a separate reception card. I think it is my favorite piece! I love that they wanted to add "flip flops optional!" which is so appropriate for a fun & casual wedding reception on the beach.

so cute! fun to keep the theme of the whole wedding and reception so consistent throughout the corresponding stationery -- and the sea foam-esque blue-green color is a perfect fit.


  1. Oh this is cute. I love sea-themed stuff!

  2. What a beautiful and romantic idea! I love the nautical style and the color on the invitation is so unexpected. Gorgeous!
