It’s been a little while since I’ve featured wedding invitations, but I’m going to remedy that right now by sharing the absolutely stunning, new Lima wedding suite from Hello Tenfold.

This gorgeous suite, a wonderful choice for a destination or beach wedding, was created from a series of hand drawn botanical illustrations, which were transformed into silhouettes that perfectly and elegantly frame the wedding details throughout the suite. The main pieces, including the invitations, save the dates, and reply cards, are letterpress printed in a transparent neutral (the botanical silhouettes) and a deep, charcoal grey (the details) for a look that’s a touch casual and so very chic and sophisticated.

In addition, Ellie from Hello Tenfold has posted a very cool behind the scenes time lapse video of her styling this suite over on Instagram, so you’ll want to head on over and check that out!

Head on over to Craftsy and check it out!

♥ Mmm, these free printable pie tags make me wanna bake some pies.

♥ If you love all things pineapple, then you’ve gotta check out this super fun (and cute) pineapple treat box tutorial.

♥ Really digging the Letter Cotton branding and collateral pieces by Cocolia. The use of type as pattern is very clever and adds so much visual interest.
