Our friends at Mulberry Market helped us to these Tawny Matte wedding invitations for Patricia and Christoper. Their June wedding held at St. Agnes Cathedral required an invitation with traditional elements to match. They decided to keep their script font in foil with the rest of the elements in our Prussian Blue letterpress ink. The reply card as well as the reception card followed suit in terms of color palette. To mimic the envelope liner, the details card used a vintage print backdrop with Prussian Blue letterpress ink overtop. Finally, a belly-band kept all the insert cards together with a monogram tag added with a final foil touch.
A Brooklyn backdrop, bold shapes, and metallic accents inspired this shoot photographed by Forever Photography. We were excited to spot our Carrara design among these elements of inspiration as well. A wedding invitation with geometric flair made with Brooklyn in mind. The skyline motif used on the belly-band as well as the vintage map envelope liner added touches of personalization. Finally, this styled shoot featured at BK Venues created an intimate yet bold setting for a contemporary Brooklyn affair.

We worked with our friends at Magnificent Milestones to create these southwestern inspired letterpress wedding invitations for Kelsey and Sam’s big day. This suite set the tone for their wedding held at the gorgeous Desert Botanical Garden in Arizona. Appropriately enough, the invitation was printed in Desert ink with a splash of Pool letterpress added to the mix. An Aztec inspired pattern placed along the bottom added an extra taste of southwestern flair to the design. The event card included sweet hand-drawn motifs to coordinate with each event beneath while the belly-band included yet another simple but eye-catching illustration. We can’t get enough of how seamlessly everything fits together with a taste of southwestern flair subtly added throughout.

Jenny and Reilly worked with our friends at Magnificent Milestones to create these bold, modern floral wedding invitations for their recent Chicago wedding. We used the handwritten inspired font from our Splash design and paired it with a more traditional font and layout. The modern meets classic typography was the perfect contrast against the vintage floral pattern from our extensive collection. We printed their day-of stationery, too!

When it comes to floral wedding invitations, our elegant garden pattern has been the go-to for many couples looking to incorporate a little or a lot of floral inspiration. It’s romantic and sweet but still classic and formal and it can be used in so many ways. Here are a few of our favorites:
Shannon and Jon added drama to their formal suite by using the elegant garden pattern as an envelope liner printed in gold shine foil over black.
Jessica and Adam used the pattern as a foil stamped gold envelope liner and again as a motif on their invitation, reply card and thank you cards.
A pocketfold kept Jacqueline and Justin’s stationery suite in order, and to coordinate with the vintage feel of their liner they customized it with the elegant garden motif and a custom calligraphed monogram.
Aracely and Jacob used the elegant garden pattern as a very subtle backdrop for their modern wedding suite by printing it as an all-over pattern in a pale blue ink on the interior of their pocketfold.
Christine and Jürgen used the elegant garden pattern to soften the contemporary feel of their wedding suite by using it as an envelope liner and belly band in a soft gray to compliment their modern palette.
Thanks to our friends at Heirloom Paper Company, Dorothy Goldsmith Printing & Party Service, Oliver’s Twist, and Jill Elaine Designs for helping these couples incorporate the elegant garden pattern into their wedding suites!

We transformed our A Bientot design for Maria and Greg’s wedding, using a custom blue ink color, supplied paper and a fun logo based on the couple’s last names. Our friends at Magnificent Milestones helped them concept the many special touches that personalized these frame letterpress wedding invitations, from the blue backing paper on the invitation to the letterpress printed belly band that tied everything together.

We had the pleasure of working with Alyssa and Andrew at our flagship store in Manhattan on the design of their foil stamped floral wedding invitations. The couple fell for our Tristan design, opting to print in a sophisticated palette of pewter letterpress and silver matte and pearl shine foils. The pearl shine foil created a white on white effect that subtly highlighted the floral motif. Their custom duogram was printed in silver matter foil on a metallic silver belly band that was paired with a coordinating envelope liner in our pointed flap envelope. Our Victorian Elegance design inspired their save the dates that featured the same cool color palette and metallic envelope liner.
