Concertina Press goes to the Florida Aquarium!

I went to the Aquarium this past weekend! One of the brides I'm working with is getting married at the Florida Aquarium next month, and I sent her samples of both Sea Turtle Wedding Invitations and Tropical Fish Wedding invitations and since it was too hard to pick just one, we did BOTH - half the guests got sea turtles in their mailbox and half got tropical fish! I saw lots of neat sea creatures that gave me inspiration for new invitations - the photo above was taken of a pacific tide pool touch tank - I actually go to touch sea anemones, sea cucumbers and sea stars! The sea cucumbers were extremely squishy - wouldn't want to step on one of those.

Watercolor Invitations, Waves Save the Dates and Sand Dollar Thank You notes for a Beach Wedding

I loved creating the watercolor beach wedding invitation pictured above because it was a wedding that just happened to take place in Cocoa Beach, Florida, the tiny oceanside town I now live in (ever watch "I dream of Jeannie"?) . The bride and groom found me through my website and got in touch, not knowing I was (at that time) about to move to Cocoa Beach!

I did the painting that's in the background of this watercolor invitation, inspired by the nearby ocean.
Here are some other great pieces that I've designed for Concertina Press that are perfect for a beach wedding; in addition to the watercolor wedding invitations pictured above here are some pretty waves save the dates and sand dollar thank you notes:

Curlews and sandpipers can frequently be seen on the California coast - these Curlew wedding invitations appeal to birders and beach-goers alike! Usually this invite comes in navy and white - you can see it here: Curlew Bird Wedding Invitations, but I made special variation on the wedding invitation for this west coast couple getting married in San Luis Obispo.

Octopus Wedding Invitations for a Fall wedding near Huston, Texas

Octopus wedding invitations for a wedding in Texas by Concertina Press
Octopus wedding invitations for a wedding in Texas - the couple decided to get their save the dates, invitations and octopus thank you notes all at once so they could ship together. This is one of my favorite designs, and it combines an antique scientific drawing of an octopus with an elegant script font and aqua envelopes, perfect for any beach or aquarium wedding! (I think this particular wedding, near Huston, Texas was neither, but that's ok, since it's very near the Gulf!)

Vintage Modern Martha's Vineyard Map Wedding Invitations

Martha's Vineyard Map Wedding Invitation by Concertina Press
I created these Martha's Vineyard map wedding invitations for a couple getting married in Edgartown. I love the combo of vintage and modern, and the navy, white and gray color scheme is perfect for a vineyard wedding with a clambake reception. 
We included a clambake card with a lobster on it to show guests where to go, and also to explain what a clambake is (it's a big seafood dinner with clams, lobsters, corn and chowder, traditionally all "baked" in the sand with hot coals, but now more often done outdoors on the grill). 

If you're interested in this invitation for your own Martha's Vineyard wedding, contact me for a quote!
