My ♥ stopped at Umama.

These chic, black and white wedding invites are so beautiful. I found them on this lovely blog, but they're made by Nicole from Umama. Nicole was inspired by a Walt Whitman poem:

In this suite, I drew upon the words from Whitman’s poem, 
Out of the Ocean:

Out of the rolling ocean, the crowd, came a drop gently to me,
Whispering, I love you, before long I die, 
I have travel’d a long way, merely to look on you, to touch you, 
For I could not die till I once look’d on you,
For I fear’d I might afterward lose you.

SO romantic! 

I was inspired to create a subtle nautical invite that captured the ocean from Whitman’s point of view, pensive and bold.

The design includes stripes along the bottom, a nautical monogram, and sweet anchors in the envelope liner.
