Colorful Vegetable Themed Wedding Invitation
This colorful vegetable themed wedding invitation is one of our favorites, for its color and uniqueness, as well as the personal connection it has to the bride and groom. The bride’s owns an organic produce business and the groom is a sommelier. In addition to the vegetables, grapes are featured on the envelopes.

Contemporary Invitation with Folded GateAnother of our favorite recent sets, this gate fold invitation opens onto a peaceful grassy field. This couple loved to take pictures of magical and whimsical looking garden doorways and gateways when they encountered them on their travels.

Traditional Elegant Garden Wedding InvitationThis wedding took place in the garden at the family home. There was a theme of white flowers, and we selected botanicals that were in white, in the family’s gardens, and in season for the ceremony.

Florentine Traditional Wedding Invitation This elegant style of Florentine invitation is very versatile. It works well in many different color schemes, and for different seasons. That’s why it’s one of the designs we’re showcasing in our new Prix Fixe offerings, which will be released next week. (Stay tuned!) This was also featured on Style Me Pretty a visually sumptuous blog about beautiful weddings.

Urban Chic Contemporary Wedding InvitationThis invitation was designed to match the urban chic, fun, cool, retro-modern look of The Smogg Shoppe in Los Angeles, where the reception was held. The venue displayed a wonderful blend of decor, including seemingly otherworldly plantings of succulents; vintage rugs, chairs, and signs; and a converted industrial urban loft style structure and fixtures.
Olive Tree Contemporary Wedding InvitationOlive trees lined the drive to this wedding location in Napa Valley, California. We developed this stylized burled tree with with a contemporary boldness to match the couple’s aesthetic.
Maidenhair Fern Art Nouveau Wedding InvitationMaidenhair fern swirls around the text of this art nouveau influenced invitation, bringing a wonderful sense of flow to the image and text. The two elements work together with give and take, almost as if dancing.

Cherry Blossom traditional wedding invitationThese cherry blossom branches in raspberry and violet brought a stunning richness to this traditional style invitation.

  1. I love your wedding invitations how do I go about getting a quotation?
    Sian

    • Hi Sian, Thank you so much! The best way to work on a quote is through a consultation, either via phone if you’re distant or in person if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area. The consultations are fun, in particular the in-person ones — we serve you tea, you get to see all of the past projects, the artwork up on the walls and hanging from the ceiling, the antique presses. And of course, they’re free. The reason we use consultations to give quotes is because each person’s project, needs, visions, taste, and budget situation is so different. It takes a good conversation to collect all the details, share ideas, and steer the ideas in the right direction for the requested budget. It’s never a hard sell, and won’t make you feel uncomfortable. I promise! Give us a call (510.593.4221) or send an email (info@paintedtonguepress.com) to set up an appointment. I hope to hear from you!
