Oliver’s Twist helped bring Kelsey and Corby’s Wisteria letterpress wedding invitations to life. Script accents added to the bride as well as the groom’s name created a soft touch. The watercolor cartouche at the top held the monogram of the happy couple. Additionally, botanicals carried to the corners of the reply card mimicked the cartouche from the invitation. A small motif added to the front of the reply envelope kept the floral theme. Finally, the envelope liner tied everything together in Wisteria.
Imagine walking into a wedding ceremony with a 100-year-old Oak tree before you covered in sparkling lights, greenery and beautiful florals cascading down the side as if it everything been there all along, just waiting for a couple to marry beneath it. We were over the moon to spot Rachel and Max’s dreamy wedding and equally as dreamy letterpress wedding invitations featured on Style Me Pretty. They were married at the Historic Aldie Mansion which created the perfect setting for their butterfly garden affair where guests were surrounded by various botanicals within every detail from the seating chart to the wedding cake. This was also carried over to their Everly inspired invitations that feature a watercolor cartouche made up of greenery that was paired with an envelope liner repeating this same botanical pattern to tie everything together. From meeting on the soccer field to beginning their next chapter with their dog Murph by their side, we have no doubt that Rachel and Max will have attain all their dreams together. Here are some of our favorites from their day, but be sure to check out the rest over at Style Me Pretty!
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.
This modern and moody customization of our Everly design is inspired by a contemporary and sleek wedding set in a chic venue with elegant wood and white elements brought together with a warm gold-toned palette. Touches of black and moody florals bring bold interest to this sophisticated affair.

Designer Jessica Downs drew inspiration from an elegant and ethereal garden wedding when creating her Everly design. “I imagined a wedding filled with natural greenery, golden candlesticks with illuminating candles, and soft textures of linen and silk in lovely shades of ivory and white,” says Jessica. Those delicate textures inspired a design of classic typography printed in a neutral shade of gray with a custom ivy monogram and a coordinating envelope liner in soft shades of green.
