Although I don't use it as often as I would like, yellow and gray will always be one of my favorite color combinations. Sarah from The Happy Envelope created these gorgeous wedding invitations for a destination wedding in Napa Valley. She paired elegant script and serif fonts with beautiful patterns for an overall design that is both laid back and sophisticated – and completely stunning.
The entire suite is wrapped in oyster gray twine paired with a neutral khaki envelope and hand-lettered black ink calligraphy.
From Sarah: This wedding is a Napa Valley destination event. The upbeat color palette of yellow, gray and taupe brings a sense of cheer to the whole suite. All pieces were letterpress printed on weighty conservation board — thick enough to allow for letterpress printing on both sides of the invitation. All pieces were printed in a warm putty gray on the front, with various patterns printed in warm yellow ink on the back of the invitation, the reply card, and the hangtag.
The bride wanted a laid-back, California feel but with an understated, simple aesthetic. The invitation itself is fairly understated on the front with a mixture of type and a light dotted line motif. The punch to this invitation is the bold pattern printing on the reverse side of select pieces.
