Modern Double Happiness Wedding Invitations

Going all the way back to December of 2008, I was contacted by Nicole, a San Francisco bride, about creating invitations and stationery for her Lake Las Vegas destination wedding. She wanted something "simple, classic, and slightly exotic" for her Asian-inspired wedding. Double happiness Chinese characters were incorporated into her design, along with some decorative flower blossoms and branches. The red and silver elements of her color theme were present in the double cardstock backing for the invitation, and in the silver envelopes for both the main invitation and the response card.

A custom map was created for Nicole, showing Lake Las Vegas in relation to the Vegas Strip and the LAX Airport. This was displayed alongside the wedding weekend itinerary which included a golf tournament and a welcome party. All cards were made of a pearlescent white metallic cardstock.

After a fun ten months of working with Nicole, she just got married this past weekend! Nicole and Gary, congratulations!! I'll be sharing her other wedding stationery elements soon. If you're interested in this invitation for your upcoming wedding or special event, email me at
