Beach Map Wedding Invitations by Lovely Day Atelier (Rochester, NY)

Beach Map Wedding Invitations by Lovely Day Atelier (Rochester, NY)

Planning a beach wedding? Love the greens and blues in this lovely invitation suite by Jessica of Lovely Day Atelier based in Rochester, NY! Take it away, Jessica:

Megan and Kevin’s beach wedding in Marco Island, Florida was a gorgeous and intimate affair. They came to me looking for custom invitations to capture the spirit of their event – and with three things in mind, green and blue colors, a square invitation and a natural, textural paper. We chose a hemp paper because its eco-friendly and has a nice texture and soft color, perfect for a beach wedding. The lush colored maps full of greens and blues are of the beaches and islands in and around the couple’s wedding and honeymoon locations. And the light green outer and emerald green inner envelopes with calligraphy to match the invitations perfectly complete the suite.
