Modern Wedding Invitations

I absolutely love how Victoria + Thomas customized our Lizza design to fit their wedding style! This couple got married in San Francisco, and they wanted their invites to showcase the iconic symbols unique to the city with a very modern feel. To bring their vision to live, we displayed our hand drawn Golden Gate and trolley cart in beautiful gold foil on the enclosure and response cards, and we letterpress printed the rest of the wording in soft white ink. Lastly, we embellished each envelope with a gorgeous marble-patterned envelope liner to accentuate the modern feel we were looking for. These elegant modern wedding invitations are absolutely perfect for a San Francisco wedding!
