Jake and Kristin Hotel Bel-Air Letterpress printed Wedding set

I have been wanting to shoot this elegant and beautiful wedding set for awhile, but was finally motivated when we found out that we were mentioned in a photo shoot of the (stunning) actual wedding featured in the summer edition of Inside Weddings Magazine (!). You can see the actual article here...IW_2013_Summer_Cline-Wurzak . The programs we created on page 96 and the menu on page 100 (the calligraphy for each guest's name was done by the very talented Tracy Joe.) Not featured was the mailed wedding invitation set, so I thought I would share that with you as well! We worked closely with the bride and groom and party planners to create and letterpress print this set. The invitation was printed on 220# Crane's Lettra, with edge coloring on the invitation (to match the ink, custom envelope liner and custom wax seal).the other pieces (RSVP, Brunch and Rehearsal dinner) were all printed on 110# Crane's Lettra. Subtle butterflies are sprinkled throughout the set, from the custom wax seal to the outer envelope, blind printed on the invitation and brunch invitation. Everything was wrapped in a beautiful sheer silver mesh Midori ribbon held together with the butterfly wax seal. We also created the Save the Date mailers, you can see them from a previous post here. I think the programs will be a separate post...

Save the Weekend!

Hello, Back to some of our recent letterpress printed projects! I know I don't have to wait until after the wedding, or party, or any event to post about it, but I just prefer to wait so only my clients and their guests get to see the printed pieces until after the special day. So I've had to sit on this one for a bit, but it was worth it! This lovely tri-fold  save the date allowed us to incorporate all the necessary information- while still keeping the design classic and elegant. We used Crane Lettra 300 gram in Pearl White and a hand mixed ink to match the Hotel Bel-Air signature grey/blue color. I think it is so important to let your guests know all the weekend activities ahead of time, especially if they will be traveling to attend (as most of their guests were).
