A belated congratulations to Carys and David for their wedding last month! They were married at Cedar Lakes Estate, an upscale summer camp, in upstate New York. The venue used to be a summer camp, so a wedding there includes the full camp experience with cabins, games by the lake, meals in a dining hall and a treehouse - what fun! Their invitations were based on our Hudson design, printed in navy and gold ink with fall themed imagery. We created a custom monogram using an apple illustration, which was printed on thank you cards and the weekend guide. One of our favorite pieces was the custom coaster, with an illustration and recipe of their signature cocktail, Winnie’s Bootlegger.
We work closely with all of our wedding clients to design invitations that will capture the spirit of their wedding day. We talk about style, color, type and imagery. We work on the stationery months before the event and because we are not "day-of" vendors, we're not present to see everything come together. It's such a treat for us when couples reach out after the dust settles to share photos with us. Here are some pictures of a wedding at the lovely Hayfield in the Catskill mountains.
We love this shot of these letterpressed menus at the table settings in this upscale barn. The dark blue ink color is a lovely complement to the gold and white accents, and clean wooden table.

Each year we find that there are certain ink colors we print over and over. Lately we've been printing a lot of sage ink. We particularly love the way this looks on our Scrolling Frames design. It works really well for this elegant meets rustic wedding!
We are so excited to see one of our favorite couple's wedding featured on Carats and Cake site this week! Claire and Tom were a dream to collaborate with! Their save the date announcements featured a cow letterpress printed in a pale tint of soft blue, a nod to the wedding venue, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. They chose a soft sage colored floral design for their invitations to match the gorgeous flowers that would surround them on their wedding day. We worked closely with them for a year and it is great to see the pictures of this special couple on their wedding day!
