Here at and Brides Local Magazines, we're big fans of invitation designer and illustrator Anne Benjamin of Mok Duk . Her whimsical drawings and handwritten fonts have a playful, retro vibe yet still manage to look sophisticated and chic. So I was super excited when I heard that my friend Jean was having Anne design her wedding invites...I couldn't wait for it to show up in my mailbox. And the final product did not disappoint! How adorable is this invitation? I love the bright yellow accents against the various shades of blue, and I think the charming skyline and vintage taxi cab illustrations perfectly capture what Jean and Andrew's wedding is sure to be—a fun, glamorous, and stylish New York City loft wedding. I can't wait! —Lauren Matthews
