I just love it when I’m able to hand deliver a wedding invitation suite! I just delivered Cait and Bob’s Pineapple motif wedding invitations to Stacey over and Red Letter Events! They were all pleased as punch! This was an amazing suite with 2 color invites, replies and reply envelopes, custom lined black inner envelope, and the perfect vintagey tiffany blue satin trimming ribbon to tie it all together!
Just finished up Kirby and David’s gorgeous letterpressed wedding invitations! I loved the way these turned out! We worked with the amazingly talented Pretty Pen Jen for the calligraphy. I love her whimsical and unique style! The suite is printed on our luscious 220# cotton stock with a pewter grey ink. The 220# stock makes the perfectly deep, crisp impression! The TarHeels blue of the envelope liner gives the suite the perfect balance of color! We also did letterpressed Thank You cards using just their first names. Congrats Kirby and Dave!
Just finished up the proof for Heather & Tim’s vintage style Save-the-Date! It is flat-printed on a thick creamy linen paper. The printed enclosure holds an information sheet and map which helps guests to see where the wedding is along with the closest suggested accommodations. The printed outer envelope is inspired from a label off of an old wine bottle. We also offer a printed addressing service! Heather and Tim were able to save on calligrapher costs by having us print the delivery addresses in perfectly matching script and ink!
It’s always fun to actually get to shoot my own pieces at a wedding! Allison and John hired me first as their photographer and then their designer. We designed some great pieces for their late March wedding using sweetgrass and roses as our inspiration. Congratulations again Allison & John!
I’ve had so much fun working with May bride, Kirby! We’re just now putting the finishing touches on her wedding paper details! This week we designed her plantable ceremony program, wedding website postcard and beverage napkins! The program is held together with grosgrain ribbon which guests can then remove and plant the cover of the booklet which is a cotton paper seeded with wildflower seeds! The wedding website postcard will arrive shortly after the invitation and invites guests to visit the couple’s wedding website which has details about accommodations and attractions and directions to the farm where they will be getting married. I think this is a great way to keep something as new-age as a URL out of a timeless letterpressed wedding invitation suite! And it’s fun for guests to receive something a few days later (and it’s a gentle reminder to get those reply cards back). The beverage napkins will be embossed with the couple’s calligraphied names (calligraphy by the amazingly talented Pretty Pen Jen).
