Sweet Henriette invitations featured by New York Weddings Magazine

We created a custom take on our Sweet Henriette invitation by Racheal Bumbolo for the summer 2015 edition of New York Weddings magazine. We letterpress printed the invitation in mesa ink and added gold shine foil stamping on our ivory paper for the feature, which is all about beautiful blush tones for summer weddings. Many thanks to New York Weddings for the feature!

Irving: shiny gold wedding invitations

Our Irving design is a perennial favorite for modern couples looking for formal wedding invitations without the frills. Lauren and Andrew wanted gold wedding invitations for their winter wedding and opted for a neutral and sophisticated palette of gold shine foil and taupe letterpress ink. For a touch of fun (and more shine!) they added a tiny gold heart to each card.

Bohemian inspiration: meet Arrowhead

Designed with a romantic, Bohemian bride in mind, Brenda Fox’s new Arrowhead design is equal parts rustic, youthful, and pretty. For an Arrowhead wedding, the bride and her gals would definitely don floral crowns. Unique indie touches like a macrame ceremony backdrop and feathery boutonnières would make their way to the scene as well. Last but not least – a naked cake topped with fresh flowers.
