Lissa and Jeff wedding invite suite: Old Hawaiiana meets Modern Luxe

It is always an honor to be able to creatively contribute to weddings, particularly when it comes to wedding invitations. From a design standpoint I like the challenge of taking a couple’s vision and aesthetics and transforming them into the tangible. 

Lissa and Jeff were getting married at Kiholo Bay. It is literally off-the-beaten-path and therefore one of the most majestic places on the Big Island of Hawaii. The bay has ties to Hawaiian royalty and is a safe haven for local marine life. Like I said, it is a pretty special place.

Lissa wanted her invitations to evoke an old-time Hawaiiana vibe, and also embrace the simplistic natural elements of the location: lava rock shores, towering palms, and stark kiawe trees. For the main invitation, our focus was on creating the signature Kiholo Bay with kiawe tree silhouette. The detailed coconut tree illustrations were created with the finest-point pen to help give its etched look, and the color palette was limited, which helped provide a sophisticated vintage feel. A simple L & J monogram was also created, and used with the palm illustrations throughout the invitation suite, including custom postage stamps. Day-of elements, such as menu cards, food station signs, and itinerary cards were also designed with matching colors and graphics to tie it all together.

The invitations were printed on sumptuous triple-thick premium paper stock and coordinated with luxurious European style envelopes and liners.
