Rachel Oatridge – Second Place

We’re in love with Rachel’s charming letterpress invitation suite! The crisp white invitation and inserts with soft gray design, the earthy green and dusty rose color palette, and that whimsical, nature-inspired envelope liner all work together nicely in this pretty suite.

Crystal created an elegant wedding invitation suite with beautiful botanic illustrations, gold foil and die cut details, and a blue accent. We were drawn to the delicate details and repeating pattern throughout this pretty suite.
