Styled Shoot: Boho in Paradise

This past fall, I was contacted by the lovely ladies at Lovelyfest, an event design duo in San Luis Obispo, California, to create a Caribbean inspired Boho invitation suite for a styled shoot they were working on. They saw my pink and emerald banana leaf Invitations, aka Beverly, with the iconic Martinique pattern on Pinterest and decided it was exactly what they wanted to complete their vision!

After seeing their fabulous inspiration from their Boho in Paradise Pinterest Board, I had other ideas in mind! When I noticed all the gorgeous blue and white china, I knew I had to incorporate that design element into the invitations and let the banana leaf pattern play a secondary role. To me, the Bohemian lifestyle is all about travel and being free spirited. I wanted to capture the artsy and eclectic pieces one would collect on their travels and wrap them up in one beautiful package. Below is the mood board I created for this shoot, capturing my inspiration behind “Boho in Paradise”. And keep scrolling for the gorgeous and colorful photos that were featured on Le Magnifique Blog.

Warning: sunglasses and fruity cocktail are highly recommended!

This Boho wedding invitation suite was designed to mimic traditional blue and white china, but with a tropical Caribbean flare. I incorporated flowers, palms, and feathers into the design, leaving space at the top for the couple’s monogram and designed a custom die cut shape to enhance the china pattern. I repeated the pattern on the back flap of the pink reply envelope for an additional element.
