I created this wedding invitation suite for Heather & Eric, a couple getting married at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg. The couple shares a deep love for Brooklyn – although both currently reside in London, they met when Eric was living in DUMBO and Heather in Brooklyn Heights, and consider the borough their home.
The couple wanted a warm and illustrative quality in the invitations to reflect the informal yet elegant style of their wedding. I created custom illustrations of Brooklyn landmarks that held special meaning for the couple – such as Bevacco, a Brooklyn Heights restaurant that is not only their rehearsal dinner venue, but also the site of their first date. These illustrations became the focal point of the printed pieces, which were all letterpressed and double-sided. A swirling flourish pattern on the back of the invitation and envelope flap harkens back to the elegant iron gates found on Brooklyn brownstones.
