This set of beautiful and incredibly meaningful rustic wedding invitations comes to us from Ravyn of Three Fifteen Design. Ravyn included illustrations of houses with picket fences to represent Lauren and John’s new home together, along with a lyric from one of their favorite songs. Just perfect.
From Ravyn: John & Lauren are an awesome couple: They met in high school and have had a long distance relationship ever since. John was deployed overseas as a lieutenant in the Army while Lauren was planning their Fall wedding back in Indiana. Right before the wedding, John made it back to the U.S., and they bought their first home together. They loved the idea of incorporating a rustic home theme into their suite, as they had never shared an actual house when we started the process… and they felt at home with each other.
We took the line, “Home Is Wherever I’m With You” from one of their favorite songs, and used it as the base for the entire suite. We wanted everything to feel natural and comfortable. We created a series of little houses with the picket fence as the common graphic element that was used throughout the set. We modified a script font a bit and traced it by hand to give it a more handmade feel.
The suite was printed by our amazing letterpress printer, Czar Press. The invitation was printed by letterpress on beautiful and thick cotton paper. The response and accommodations cards were flat printed on the same paper, which allowed us to bring in the pop of apple green they wanted.
The entire suite was wrapped up with kraft paper envelopes and finished off with a custom return address stamp we created to match the stationery. Lauren & John also had us create a little house stamp they could use for favor tags & bar napkins at the wedding.
Thank you so much Ravyn!
