We love combining letterpress and foil stamping printing methods – especially when the look is carried throughout the entire wedding suite. The Dandelion Patch in Vienna submitted this chic customization of our Austin Traditional design and added just the right amount of romantic details.

This next design contest honoree created a lot of buzz here at Bella Figura! Letterpress and foil stamping make for a unique take on our Victrola invitation in this ticket-inspired customization, sent to us by Alexa and Julie at The Dandelion Patch in Reston, Virginia. Katie and Ryan – the bride and groom – shared the inspiration behind the invitations for their fall wedding with us:
Initially, our venue choice was going to be this amazing outdoor amphitheater in Southern Oregon called the Britt Festivals. It is a venue that hosts various musicians during the summer months. Unfortunately, they were unable to accommodate a wedding, so we went elsewhere. Lucky for us, our new venue has all of the elements we originally wanted, plus some! While we may not have a stage, we have the ability to create one that is tailor-made to us! Beyond that, we also have some amazing musicians in our family who will be performing during the ceremony. Since the feel of the wedding is so organic and artistic, we thought it would be neat to have the invitations be more like a ticket to a show.
We searched tickets and found some that had elements that we really liked, so we drew from those. I wanted to put the most important information in the forefront, such as the date and our names. By having our names in a different color, we were able to bring the focus there and make it less monotonous. Red just seemed to pop out more against the white and black colors. It was either red or copper to go with the fall colors, and red won out!
These invitations feature a really great mix of typography, and the foil stamped hand calligraphy accents add the perfect hint of elegance! We especially loved the way the modern herringbone envelope liners complemented the invitations – the perfect finishing touch. Congratulations to Alexa, Julie and everyone at the Dandelion Patch for being selected as a design contest honoree, and best wishes to the happy couple – we hope your wedding day is wonderful!
