Classic meets modern: hand calligraphy in gold foil

We’re not-so-secretly obsessing over Cristina and Michael’s inspired take on our Eleanor wedding invitation design. The Carlisle style hand calligraphy is fresh and modern, while classic Black letterpress ink meets rich Gold Matte foil and a natural jute envelope pairs up with a dramatic floral liner.

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.
