This is another set from last summer. Bridgin and Ian had a very specific concept in mind when we met last winter to discuss their wedding invitations. A view of the Bay Head Yacht Club from the water was to be the focus, so we first created a pencil sketch of the building outline. A digital line art illustration was then created and split to cover the design of both wedding invitation and rsvp cards. A nautical theme was tied into the corresponding cards and envelopes in the set, and touches of yellow added to the navy and white color scheme. Milkfed Press printed the beautiful letterpress cards and did a stellar job of getting the illustration to line up on both cards!
Here is a wedding invitation set from last September. Alyssa & David requested their first names be hand lettered for their wedding invitation. The lettering served as the focal point of their invitation, with the first letters extracted to make a monogram. The monogram was printed on hangtags, using letterpress and rose gold foil. The rest of the set complemented the foil's warm tone with blush and ecru cards and envelopes, as well as a subtle white and blush rose patterned belly band and envelope liner.
