Glamorous Ballroom Wedding in NYC

Our Deveril design is a classic choice for traditional, ballroom weddings – and we loved seeing it front and center on Style Me Pretty recently! Marley and Philip customized our Deveril design by printing it in gold matte foil, which tied in perfectly with the gold wedding details they infused throughout their big day. Check out Style Me Pretty to see more photos from this glamorous ballroom wedding!

Modern and Minimal Deveril letterpress wedding invitations

Adele and Kevin went for a modern and minimal look when customizing our Deveril wedding invitation design. Our Simple Geometrics pattern blind debossed on the front of the invitation makes a chic backdrop for the updated layout and fonts.

An unexpected pairing of polish and panache: Deveril letterpress wedding invitations

Our Deveril wedding invitation design is classic defined – its timeless, traditional and perfect for any formal event. But even a design this refined deserves to have a little fun. Kay and Joshua added our Classic Chevron pattern in blind deboss (an impression without ink) to the front of the invitation while keeping the sophisticated styling of the Deveril design. This unexpected pairing of polish and panache expertly showcases the beauty of letterpress printing on our luxurious cotton paper.

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!
Classic letterpress wedding invitations printed in antique gold ink by Bella Figura
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!

Romantic Black & White San Francisco Wedding

We are thrilled to share this real wedding that was recently featured on Grey Likes Weddings! The wedding took place in San Francisco – with a ceremony at The Ferry Building and a reception that followed at The Fairmont. Our classic Deveril invitation design set the tone for this gorgeous affair — black & white details conveyed a timeless look, while small touches (like the bride’s sharp black shoes and the lush greenery used for the centerpieces) added hints of modern elegance.

Lauren worked with Union Street Papery for her Deveril letterpress invitation suite, which we printed in charcoal ink. The charming submitted San Francisco details blended perfectly with Deveril’s classic style and added a lovely, localized touch!
