Today, while I was browsing through my favorite topic at Zazzle, #thebeach, I came upon a stunning wedding invite that I couldn't wait to share with you.
These elegant Lighthouse Ocean Beach Shells wedding invitations were created using the hand painted watercolor artwork of artist and Zazzle shopkeeper, Audrey Jeanne Roberts.
Roberts created the beautiful illustrations with a faux gray driftwood background. She's included a pretty lighthouse, Nautilus and Conch shells as well as several starfish and swirl flourishes in the corners.
The design is available with, or without and qua and white border.
These romantic beachy invites would be perfect for a seaside or nautical theme wedding and would work equally well for a casual or formal wedding reception.
I find this design to be timeless and perfect for a modern retro or vintage-inspired wedding.
