The Inspiration

We invite you to explore our inspiration and moodboard for how this Brooklyn Botanic Garden wedding invitation design came to fruition. You’re also welcome to view our creative process to dig deeper into our exclusive design process.

Gotham Inspiration


We started the process by sketching a few different invitation suite designs. We explored a few illustration options ranging from New York City views to more specifically Brooklyn and Brooklyn Botanic Garden inspired views. Since the wedding was taking place at a botanical garden, we were also keen on incorporating botanical and floral illustrations throughout.

No design is ever complete without a unique monogram which is the centerpiece of the invitation suite. We explored a variety of monograms ranging from classic to more contemporary styles.

Design Extension

Once we established the look and feel of the invitation card, we started designing other pieces in the invitation suite. The reply cards and envelopes were either inspired by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden or by botanical illustrations.

At the end of the process, we make sure that all the details are considered and that the design can be printed perfectly. We also engineer all the components of the suite (like the bellyband below) to work seamlessly together.
