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...

Katie and Tim Wedding Tattoo Inspired Invitation Set

And suddenly it was December. Wow- how this year has flown by. We have been so lucky and happy to work on so many great projects this year, and there are many, many more to share with you. This is definitely one of my favorites that we have done lately, we started with their wood veneer save the dates cards using our hand drawn bluebird of happiness design, and carried that theme through to their mailed wedding invitation set. I love all the tiny extra personal touches we snuck in. Their cat waiting on the rsvp envelope, a tiny paw print on the map, a small nautical star here and there. It's so much fun for me to add these quirky personal additions- after all what's the point of a custom invitation set if it's not customized to you?!
