Anais Invitations + Modern Nashville Wedding on Green Wedding Shoes!

Paige and Jon Mark customized our Anais design in a romantic color palette of gold matte foil and desert ink for their modern Nashville wedding at The Bridge Building. The couple paired their invitations with our jute envelopes for a rustic meets glam look, and the gold baker’s twine and white calligraphy addressing by Jenna Rainey made for beautiful finishing touches. Featured recently on Green Wedding Shoes, we love that the bride (a creative director) drew inspiration for the colors, textures, and overall design elements from a cactus! The couple’s advice to those currently planning a wedding? “Keep your guests in mind. You want them to enjoy the night just as much as you do!”

Glamorous Ballroom Wedding in NYC

A classic winter wedding celebration in Vermont

Today’s beautiful real wedding is such a classic. Maggie and Ian both grew up and met in Vermont, so for their wedding day they wanted to give their friends and family a true Vermont experience. We worked with Maggie and Ian for their letterpress wedding invitations, which featured our Deveril design on ivory paper in antique gold ink. Maggie shared some of the details behind their beautiful wedding day and some advice for brides-to-be — take a look!

When it came to the invitations, we wanted to select an ink that represented warmth, something that was reminiscent of sitting by a fire and one that would make our guests feel welcome. The ink and paper we chose were the perfect combination and truly set the stage for our December wedding. It was a traditional invitation, however, we put a different spin on some of the wording to make it uniquely our own. We could not have been more pleased with the finish product!

We chose the village of Dorset because we felt it would give our family and friends an authentic Vermont experience. As Dorset speaks for itself, we didn’t try to have a theme or follow a specific trend. We wanted our guests to experience the many things we love about Vermont, and the pristine village of Dorset embodies so many of those things: the nostalgia (especially during the Christmas season), white clapboard houses, the most perfect general store, Bed and Breakfasts, a historic Inn and the list goes on.

The entire Dorset Inn was booked with our guests for the weekend, as well as the surrounding B&B’s, so it was like everyone was home for the holidays — doors were open, people were coming and going, voices of family and friends echoed throughout the halls — it was so special.

It was important to us that our wedding have personal touches throughout and be a representation of us as a couple. Ian is an artist and created our ceremony programs. Our dogs, Roxie and Zoe served as our ring bearers & flower girls. My mom had her wedding dress from 1975 made into a jacket for me! We had a progressive cocktail party instead of a sit down dinner. As December conjures up the feelings of family and friends gathered together, we wanted our guests to “mix and mingle” the entire night through. 

On Saturday morning, the day of the wedding, I was sitting in a chair in my room at the Dorset Inn, which overlooked the village green. Watching our guests mill about the village, coming and going from the general store, throwing the football. It was the best feeling to know all of your favorite people were together and in one place. I was so surprised at how fast it all went. Everyone tells you it goes by quickly, but it really does. Make sure to take it all in, step back and watch your family and friends talking, laughing, dancing. And eat. You will need it!

Charming Backyard Bohemian California Wedding

We loved seeing how our Simple Charms invitation design set the tone for Allison and Nowell’s stylish backyard bohemian California wedding. They customized the design by including a fun and colorful patterned envelope liner in our refined mosaic pattern in sherbet, sand and pewter inks. Vibrant patterns were used throughout the wedding decor, too, and personal touches were sprinkled in throughout the day. From mini margaritas to one of the prettiest table runners (sewn by the mother of the bride!) we love all of the thoughtful details that were woven into this wedding. See even more photos from this real wedding on Style Me Pretty!

Elegant Rustic Virginia Wedding

We were so happy to see Mindy & Travis’ elegant rustic Virginia wedding on Style Me Pretty recently. We worked with the couple for their letterpress invitations and menus, and combined the border from our Romantic Floral design with hand calligraphy by Debi Zeinert in our Classic Calligraphy style. A soft color palette using our French vanilla and pewter letterpress inks looked stunning our luxurious ivory paper. The elegant, romantic look of the invitations set the tone for their gorgeous celebration, which featured various shades of pink, creams and blush. Mindy and Travis enhanced their already gorgeous barn venue by hanging romantic bistro lights and displaying elegant floral arrangements. The end result? Breathtaking.

Modern Romantic Wedding with Chevron Letterpress Invitations

We are excited to share today’s modern romantic wedding that was featured recently on Style Me Pretty! Nasseem and John picked our chevron-styled Darla letterpress wedding invitations, and by customizing the colors to navy and pewter inks, the invitation suite paired perfectly with the rest of the modern accents used throughout their wedding day. Do you see those adorable matching Darla letterpressed cards at the table setting? Nasseem and John made a donation to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation in lieu of favors and we happily printed free letterpress favor cards for helping others in need.
