Our flagship store helped Mia and Joseph create these letterpress celebration invitations with rose gold accents. Inspired by our Townsend design, they chose Pale Gray as well as Cobblestone inks which created a cool color palette. A Pale Gray border used around the perimeter of the invitation added a subtle design element on the front. While on the reverse, guests can find our Damask pattern in Pale Gray ink. The same pattern repeated on the envelope liner kept the suite consistent and eye-catching.
Designer Leslie Johnston created Nostalgique, our retro inspired letterpress wedding invitation printed in Cobblestone ink that established a subtle grayscale aesthetic. This design was created with a pair of old souls in mind who envisioned a wedding full of old-fashioned accents like records used as favors, typewriter cuff links, and old-school cameras surrounding the venue. The envelope liner featured sweetly illustrated motifs printed in Desert ink with a Cobblestone backdrop to keep a tone on tone look. The design was imagined on a smaller scale for an extra touch of vintage charm.
After a 29-year engagement filled with all the twists and turns life has to offer, Claudia and Daniel were finally married on the twenty-sixth of August surrounded by all of their loved ones. In 2012, Claudia was diagnosed with stage three cancer and from there endured a treatment plan that included chemotherapy, radiation, a double mastectomy and a full hysterectomy. In 2016, Claudia’s cancer metastasized to her bones which led to a partial hip replacement and she is currently on oral chemotherapy. Though Claudia and Daniel have experienced many ups and downs, the love that they share for each other has remained constant. We were lucky enough to play a small part in this couple’s incredibly moving story as we worked with Brilliant Event Planning and Wish Upon a Wedding to create their dream invitations and day of pieces.
Using our Everly design as inspiration, Claudia and Daniel picked a warm color palette of Cobblestone letterpress ink and paired it with Gold Matte foil. Botanical watercolor accents were added throughout each piece including the envelope liner to give everything a softer overall aesthetic. We’re excited to share a glimpse into the making of this couple’s invitations and day of pieces below. It takes a love like Claudia and Daniel’s to remind us of all the good in the world and to embrace it every single day.
For Lauren and Dane’s Bronx Zoo wedding invitations we customized calligrapher Elizabeth Hardin’s Amons design to reflect the unique vibe of their venue. Their palette of cobblestone and deep blue carried through to their additional suite pieces and their playful, hand-illustrated envelope liner borrowed from our Mannon design.
