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.

Fun-Meets-Formal Letterpress Invitation Trend – Edgy Edging

Featuring the gorgeous hand calligraphy of Debi Zeinert, Classic Calligraphy definitely tends to be one of our more, well, classic designs.  Throw some fresh Navy ink and vibrant Watermelon edge painting into the mix though, and you get a really great splash of bold contemporary style.  A brightly contrasting edge paint color is a wonderful way to make things fun and current without going too far overboard and loosing the vintage-inspired vibe of the overall set.  These invitations also feature a cute website card – an elegant and eco-friendly way to direct guests to your website for additional wedding details.

Real Wedding – Gatsby + Calligraphy

We loved seeing this real wedding featuring an absolutely dazzling Bella Figura bride and her dapper groom on Style Me Pretty recently. They planned a Gatsby inspired affair, traditional, black-tie, and completely stylish. (Check out her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta lace dress and headpiece!) A garden wedding was followed by an indoor formal seated dinner, all filled with romantic details. Our Classic Calligraphy letterpress invitations set the stage, with gorgeous calligraphy from Bella Figura calligraphy Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill showcased throughout their stunning celebration.

Calligraphy Letterpress Invitations + Custom Calligraphy Reception Pieces

We were really excited to receive a beautiful package in the mail recently from Lisa Lefkowitz, a renowned wedding photographer whose work we just adore. Her images are just so beautiful! Lisa was sweet enough to share images from a wedding she shot showcasing the beautiful Classic Calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations we printed for Joanna and Christopher. The couple also worked directly with our calligrapher Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill for envelope addressing, signage at their reception and the prettiest of calligraphy place cards.

Thank you for sharing, Lisa, and a big congratulations to Joanna and Christopher! Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and we wish you all the best in the years to come.
