Moonrise Kingdom Inspired Wedding Invitations

I finally recently watched “Moonrise Kingdom” and found it to be a very charming and enchanting movie. The soundtrack and the art direction was really unique. Coincidentally, a pinner recently shared with me his wedding invitations that were inspired by the movie and I instantly fell in love. I then discovered that his wife Emily, of the blog Me and My Polar Bear designed them. Eeek the details are amazing and oh, they are letterpressed. Double win.

“When we first started imagining what our wedding might look like, we had a bit of a woodland theme in mind. This may or may not be connected to our mild obsession with foxes and bears. We had even started looking into buying scout badges and other similar memorabilia. Then we went and watched Moonrise Kingdom and a true theme was born.”

This was definitely one of my favorite parts of the stationery set. These unique escort cards mimic the old school vintage animal learning flash cards down to the font choice. I have something pretty similar that I am using with my two year old son! Love it.

A Magical Wedding Invitation


Our good friends Simon, an ice cream loving poker-playing magician (yes, magician) and Joni, a lovely songbird, recently tied the knot. I wanted to share with you their wedding invitation because of the *buzz word* whimsicalness of it. And really, that’s the only word that could describe it. With one of the best ceremony soundtracks to date, it was wonderful seeing these two start their lives together.

Remember Deny? He designed these wedding invitations for them. The first part was their faces on the royals intended to be playing cards. These were offset in two colors so they came out very vibrant.


Deny is a big typography buff and it shows in his work. Working with multiple fonts is difficult and has to be done with finesse. You can’t just throw a bunch of random fonts together and pray that it looks cohesive. He’s making the magician theme work and it isn’t coming off too cheesy either.

I was also a huge fan of the unique Playbill style wedding program. In essence, Joni and Simon are very much performers so it was only fitting to do a Playbill style wedding program. What I really enjoyed was the overall concept of the Acts and verbiage that was carefully thought out. If you zoom in, you’ll see what I mean.


Now for some visuals from Vivid Delight Photography! Guests were treated to Treatbot: a karaoke ice cream truck local to the bay area. Since Simon loves ice cream and Joni is a singer, this was an entertaining combination. Our friend Mary was super excited for it 🙂

CONGRATS AGAIN!

A Wedding in a Class of its Own

I somehow stumbled up on Amber and Jeff’s wedding site through a random link on Wedding Bee. This wedding happened in 2008 and maybe I’m behind on seeing this particular wedding, but it’s so cute that I’ll just post about it anyway. You’ll see based on their profile how the theme came into play.

“My husband and I met as mechanical engineering students back in university, so it goes without saying that we are quite the science geeks (I was actually in the Math Club during high school, where we stayed after school to write math tests – for fun!).”

Prepare yourselves…

Their save the dates. I love the pencils!!


A matching wedding website. Don’t you love when people take consistency seriously?
