wedding suite: the invitation




it seems like forever that i have been working away on this delicious wedding suite, full of details. it has been a joy to create something so true to my style. working with colors of blush and deep blue, while keeping a balanced mix of masculine and feminine and pulling in some vintage inspiration, we created this invitation suite and lots of wedding day extras. 



for the invitation, we letterpress printed each component on gorgeous creamy crane lettra. each invitation card was blind printed on 220# lettra with my hand drawn peonies.


then, each card was letterpressed with deep blue text and custom calligraphy. the blind printed peonies were hand watercolored in varying tones of blush on each invitation. this added some lovely variations between each flower and invitation with the watercolor puddling in the deeply impressed lines. the invitations are finished with rounded corners. 








the envelope return was beautifully pressed into the cotton envelopes with custom calligraphy (a mix between pieces from 2 very talented calligraphers... laura hooper and anne robin) and simple vintage inspired type. 






for the envelope liners, we wanted to add a bit of masculinity to a feminine invitation, so we channeled some vintage inspiration and decided on graph paper. each is letterpressed with a graph paper inspired grid, lending a tactile element to the envelopes.


 
for the reply, we decided to use the peony illustration, this time for the envelope liner. pressed in blush to balance the masculinity of the reply card.



each reply card was blind printed with a frame, mimicking a white border photo frame. then, some letterpressed photo corners were added along with the text. simple and straightforward with a vintage feel.



we wrapped the invitations tucking the rsvp into a parcel tie of gorgeous natural linen twine, an element that will repeat itself in many of the other pieces. 


each envelope was hand calligraphed with the recipients address just below the letterpressed phrase "please deliver to:"



for mailing we used a collection of new stamps, vintage inspired seed packets, that cam in many different styles. they perfectly incorporated the blush and vintage feel we were focused on, and we were able to use a mix of styles on each invitation envelope.
