Theresa and Eric went for a more classic, less Parisian feel on their customization of our A Bientot wedding invitation design. The sweet stripes and floral motif were removed and the frame was altered to allow for a more formal, traditional layout. The Augustine Damask envelope liner pattern ups the romance and pairs perfectly with the motif.

Jessica and Cameron were inspired by a vintage flyer when customizing our retro-cool Tara wedding invitation design for their autumn garden wedding. They added Gold Matte foil and more vintage design elements along with their own very personalized wording. To make sure guests had all the details, a double-sided direction/map card, accommodations card and brunch card were included.

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!
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!
Many thanks to Maggie & Ian for sharing their special day with us!

We’re loving these fun letterpress coasters and coordinating accommodations cards, showcasing our Tara design (a 2010 favorite!). They are printed in daffodil and espresso inks and add a touch of retro cool to any reception or celebration.
We absolutely love this unique customization of our Champagne design! Letterpress printed in clover and blind deboss for a tropical destination wedding, we worked with this couple to create a small booklet by fastening the different elements of their invitation suite together with grommets. The page sizes are stepped to create tabs and labeled to identify which page contains what information. The booklet contains an invitation, an events card, a directions and accommodations card, and a reply card that is perforated to be torn out and returned.
