Roosevelt Letterpress Invitations Featured in Aviation Inspired Shoot

We loved the way our modern Roosevelt letterpress invitation set the tone for this vintage aircraft hangar inspiration shoot at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, California. Photographer Shhivika Chauhan pulled together an incredibly talented team of vendors to create the shoot, which featured a feathery Rosa Clara gown with a vintage vibe, gold sequined tablecloths, and eye-catching florals from Green Petal Designs. Here are a few of our favorite shots from the shoot, but be sure to check out Le Magnifique to see more photos!

Classic inspiration: letterpress and foil invitations

Our Traditional Script wedding invitation design is graceful, elegant and loaded with romantic charm.
