Elegant Beachy Wedding Invitations

Engagement photos taken at the beach, of course!

Note the hearts... in Germany and San Diego
Combining the beach and elegance into a wedding invitation can be a delightful challenge. The texture of sand, the shades of blue, the shimmer of sun on the water. Even better than that? This couple's precious story!
Katie came to the San Diego area from Germany as an exchange student for her junior year of high school and that is where they met and dated for a few months. The friends she made that year stayed close to her heart and as the years went by she came back to visit quite a few times. It was during one of those trips that she and Grant reconnected, began dating in that long-distance fashion (Skype!), and truly fell in love.
But back to the invitations! A special way to keep the beachy blues in play was to use a watercolor of a beach photo for the map pocket-liner as well as the backside of the invitation extra pieces (i.e. rsvp card, welcome party card).
