Lisa + Alejandro’s Elegant Nautical Themed Wedding Invitation Suite

Nautical Wedding Invitation by April Lynn Designs

Lisa and Alejandro planned an elegant fall destination wedding at The Reeds at Shelter Haven in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. With their venue by the sea in mind, we set out to create an invitation suite that honored their wedding’s locale without becoming too nautical or too formal. Balance is always best!

I incorporated nautical knots into each piece of their stationery, but we also thought they tied in perfectly with the fact that L+A tied the knot on their wedding day! Each piece from L+A’s invitation suite was printed digitally onto cream matte cardstock; however, we wanted the knot and rope to stand out just a bit more on the invitation. I turned to thermography (raised printed) to accentuate the rope detail. I also have to mention one of my favorite details – the custom map we printed on the back of the Accommodations card. The suite was placed in a pocket fold, and twine tied into a knot completed the look while also giving a slight hint to what guests would find when they opened the suite!
