Monochromatic Letterpress + Foil Stamped Save the Dates

Ryan and Dan wanted a striking save the date to set the tone for their Boston wedding. In addition, they had important information about their wedding weekend and website to share with their guests.  By choosing our Lumos wedding invitation design and customizing a 2-piece grommeted save the date card, they were able to incorporate their wedding details on a swing away card underneath the modern, industrial inspired save the date.  Pewter letterpress and silver shine foil on our 2-ply Bella Cotton paper made for an edgy, monochromatic ensemble.

East Indian Wedding Inspiration for Aimee O’Boyle’s Darjeeling Design

Aimee O’Boyle pictured a traditional East Indian wedding full of bright colors and patterns, accented with gorgeous gold fixtures and luxurious details when she created Darjeeling. The bride would wear a traditional bridal lengha in aubergine detailed with gorgeous East Indian patterns and motifs in gold, while her bridesmaids would be decked out in teal saris accented in lovely gold details. An explosion of lush florals decorates the space with amazing food and music to complete the look. To see more of the imagery that inspired this design, visit Aimee’s Darjeeling Pinterest board

LoveGivesWell Local Gifted Wedding in Syracuse, New York

Last year we had the pleasure of partnering with Lovewell Design for a unique local event that took place in August. LoveGivesWell was a gifted wedding headed by Kate at Lovewell Design, an inspired event planner based here in Syracuse with lots of love for local vendors. Kate was inspired by Becky and Craig’s story (they met a few years ago at the Buy Local Bash!) and worked with some of the area’s most talented wedding professionals to help put on the event. We worked with Becky and Craig for their invitations, which featured our Modern Fete design in tawny matte foil and sea mist letterpress ink on our 2-ply white Bella Cotton paper. Check out some of the beautiful images from their wedding below, or head over to the Lovewell Post for more details on their celebration!

Modern Surf + Chartreuse Letterpress Wedding invitations

Kristy and Sam chose a bold color combination of chartreuse, pewter and surf inks for their modern letterpress wedding invitations and save the dates. Their invitation suite featured our Farmstand invitation design, and consisted of an invitation, reply card, save the date, folded thank you notes, and coordinating envelopes. Reminiscent of a vintage seed packet, we love the sueded, vintage look of the stripes on this design. A chartreuse envelope liner in our elegant ombre pattern tied the entire set together.
