We printed these wedding invitations last year for a lovely couple getting married in Northern California. They chose our Chatham template, but wanted to keep it classic by printing everything in black ink. The cocktail illustrations on the card for their Mexican Fiesta keep this simple set festive.
Congratulations to our Britt and Tony on their wedding a couple weeks ago! We worked with them on a variety of letterpress stationery for their San Francisco wedding, including these announcements and bookmarks. They have a really sweet story about meeting on a city bus, and wanted to incorporate that into the design of their stationery. The image of the bus became a fun recurring element, as well as the map of San Francisco's transit system.
As a thank you to their guests, we made these custom bookmarks with the map and bus design. At the bottom it reads, "Always thank you bus driver" as a nod to their meet-cute. (And its definitely a cute one!)
Karen from Smashing the Glass featured the gorgeous wedding of Natalie & Alex recently. We worked with them on their wedding invitations and just loved the whole suite! Its so nice to get a glimpse of the wedding, after working with a couple and we were so excited to see some of their beautiful photos. It was such a romantic wedding, and the bride and groom looked so wonderfully happy!
We designed this sweet bridal shower invitation for a bride on the sunny West Coast. We love printing in bright and happy colors, especially neon pink. A bright pink invitation like this sets the mood for a really fun shower. And doesn't that calla lily look feminine and beautiful?
We recently designed a letterpress wedding suite for a couple getting married in Southern California. They had a beautiful color theme of dusty rose with gold accents, and loved the vintage heart locket illustration in our collection. A custom script monogram sets off their simply classic wedding invitations.
We just love Virginia and Greg's San Francisco themed wedding invitations. We started with their letterpress printed Save the Dates in rich black and bright red ink. They wanted to pay homage to an iconic landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge, on top of the card. The combination of colors on warm white paper is striking. We even had a little fun with a cute streetcar on the envelopes!
They loved the design of the Save the Date, so we followed suit for the invitations. The Golden Gate Bridge topped this card in bright red, as well, with the elegant and simple text in black. An envelope liner, printed in silver, was just the right touch for the design. We found a vintage map of San Francisco that looked just right next to the invitation.
We love how Virginia and Greg's invitations turned out and we can't wait to do another city themed letterpress set!
Natalie and Alexander's letterpress wedding invitations are so soft and dreamy. They held a black tie wedding this summer at a beautiful Four Seasons in Westlake Village, California. They wanted the invitations to be elegant to announce their formal affair, but still have a modern, fun touch. They commissioned calligrapher, Katherine Ross of Script Merchant Calligraphy for portions of the text, which gave the whole set more character. We love the loose, modern style of Katherine's calligraphy!
We printed the letterpress invitation on warm white paper, and paired soft gray with a nude colored ink. The combination is subtle and warm, setting you up for a relaxing weekend in Southern California.
This little illustration of a manor home looks wonderful on top of their information card. It embodies the elegance of the Four Seasons resort perfectly. We absolutely love Natalie and Alex's custom wedding invitations, and we're sure that their wedding was just gorgeous.
This fall we designed and printed a beautiful set of art nouveau inspired wedding invitations for a couple in southern California. They started things off sweet with a bookmark sized Save the Date, printed in a warm gold and green combination.
The invitation features a delicate border of dark green vines that accent the fine lines in the type. A wreath-decorated home was the perfect image for their intimate reception.
The gold ribbon woven through the wreath is a sweet, little detail that makes this response card stand out. The simplicity of this letterpress wedding suite is what makes it such a nice sight. It's all in the details!
Finally, here are some photos of the wedding invitations that we designed and printed for my own wedding! It's always difficult to come up with a design and motif that feels like it completely sums up the couple, but for us, it was a little more straightforward: as we were planning our wedding, we were also planning a cross-country bike tour! So we knew we wanted to incorporate some bike illustrations on our stationery. You can find out more about our bike tour at www.honkforfreedom.com.
