sea-life inspired wedding invitations

Amparo "Star" Go and Jahmal Durham's wedding is set to take place at the Honua Kai Lani Estate in the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii. This intimate event, planned for about 100 guests, is going to be a great opportunity for guests to celebrate the couple's awaited marriage (they've been together for over a decade!), and to take a mini vacation, exploring crystal blue waters, indulging in decadent Hawaiian meals, and listening to melodic island reggae tunes.

Star approached B&W for a really special invitation project -- to help her design a main invitation card and RSVP card that would reflect her color scheme -- purple and orange. But this wasn't a typical project for us -- she had planned on incorporating a box, sea shells, and a custom sewn jacket made of Duponi silk. WOW! By collaborating together, and finding the perfect images to adorn the frame of her main card, we came up with a sea-life inspired design, with classic font treatments, and a starfish logo, representing her nickname, "Star." She and her sister did a fabulous job stitching the silk jackets, and assembling the entire ensemble.

Because Star wanted to use minimal inserts, we increased the size of the RSVP card to accommodate all the important information -- what a brilliant way to save from enclosing multiple cards and to share an exciting 4-day weekend itinerary. The last photo is a snapshot taken from Star's phone of the finished product -- boxed, wrapped, and adorned -- just perfect for this Maui wedding.


  1. Excellent Job to the Go sisters and B&W for creating such a masterpiece. We've received nothing but compliments... some chose to call in the RSVP, because they didn't want to lose any portion of this wonderful keepsake!

    Cheers and Mahalo's...
    the Groom
