Jaimie + Miles’s Rustic Jackson Hole Wedding Invitations

I’m in love with every detail in these Jackson Hole wedding invitations from Cara at XOWYO! From the antlers used throughout the suite to the screen printed wood veneer rehearsal dinner invitations to the green edge painting, this invitation suite is perfectly understated and entirely cohesive. Love!

From CaraWhen Jaimie and her mother came to me for her wedding invitations, they wanted a letterpress printed suite their friends and family had not seen before. As a buyer for Macy’s, Jaimie has great style and really led the direction of this suite and other paper products. She wanted her invitations to reflect the woodsy, rustic, and western themes of Jackson Hole, but without being too stereotypical or kitchsy. With plans to be married on a ranch, they envisioned antlers, brands, wood, and kraft paper.

We first discussed using Jackson’s iconic antler arch for her invitations, but ultimately decided to use just the antlers. We carried the antler theme throughout her entire wedding, from invitation to cocktail napkins. We also decided that rather than using a wood print, or an image of a tree trunk, we would incorporate real wood into the invitation suite with the rehearsal dinner invitation, which was screen printed onto walnut wood veneer. And of course, we added a custom brand like one would find on any Jackson Hole ranch.

We selected 220# ecru paper for the invitation and reply, with edge painting to incorporate the green color Jaimie would use oner wedding tables. Combined with the gray ink and wood card, this set the tone for her contemporary rustic affair. We decided to do the event invitation in an 80# moss green stock because Jamie needed to convey so much information that it printed perfectly on the inside of the folded card. The website card ended up being a last minute addition, and tucked inside the event invitation perfectly.

For the wedding, Jaimie found all the vintage keys in her home state of Texas. I printed guests name on parchment paper and then tied them together with champagne silk ribbon. We also created kraft paper bags filled with lavender, which guests used to shower the couple as they walked down the aisle.

Sarah + Alan’s Modern Toile Wedding Invitations

I love toile. Really really love. So I was thrilled when Erin at Lucky Luxe sent over these beautiful wedding invitations with a modern take on classic toile! The custom toile pattern is made from vintage engravings and was inspired by 18th century French toile textiles. Erin paired bright persimmon ink with classic black and white and mixed whimsical lettering with traditional serif text – all with incredibly chic results!

From ErinTo make the toile pattern for the invitation, we pieced together several vintage engravings of beautiful outdoor scenery and florals, and I was tickled to death to find the sweet couple taking a stroll deep in our bag of tricks.

French toile is typically printed in red, black, or blue, but we wanted to take this toile down a different aesthetic path. By combining it with quirky hand drawn lettering and a small, traditional serif, it just felt right to print in punchy persimmon ink with black text. The bride is a fashion maven and the bold color pairing looks like her wardrobe — another inspiration for the outdoor event.

Sarah + Brian’s Western Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! I’m on my way up to NYC for the Winter NYNOW market (you can follow the show along with me via Instagram!), but I’m excited to start the week with a pair of really gorgeous wedding invitations! First up, a fun invitation suite from AllieRuth Design that mixes a western vibe with romantic details like calligraphy and floral patterns. Such a wonderful combination!

Western Watercolor Wedding Invitations AllieRuth Design Sarah + Brians Western Watercolor Wedding Invitations

From AllieWe had SO much creating this suite. Sarah and Brian really allowed me to run with their ideas and put something together that stands out among the AllieRuth portfolio. We worked with Mama’s Sauce, our favorite rock star printers, to take on the unique task of letterpress printing a blind impression woodgrain texture and then screen printing in metallic ink.

The reception took place on a beautiful ranch, inside of a horse barn. The couple wanted to incorporate that western vibe in a subtle way, so we mixed a funky retro font with my calligraphy, and brought in soft details with the lace band, watercolors, and floral envelope liner.

Lili Emma’s Colorful Split Fountain Baby Announcements

These adorable birth announcements come to us all the way from Hungary! Designer and printer Judit from Confettini created these vibrant announcements for a darling baby girl born back in September. Judit used the split fountain technique to infuse these announcements with lots of bright color, then paired the announcements with hot pink envelopes and handmade confetti. Such a wonderful way to celebrate a new arrival!

 Lili Emmas Colorful Split Fountain Baby Announcements

From JuditLili Emma was born on a sunny Thursday morning. This girl is a little ray of sunshine in her family. We made this letterpress printed, hand lettered baby announcement for her.

 Lili Emmas Colorful Split Fountain Baby Announcements

For the first time we used a special inking technique called a split fountain – or rainbow roll. The process was really exciting. I love this ombre result and I think it looks really good on this paper. We paired the announcement with a lovely fuchsia envelope filled with custom coloured confetti. I hope this card will be a great memory for the family and for Lili for many years to come.

Jaclyn + Brent’s Tropical Destination Wedding Invitations

Aaaahhh… the ladies of Papellerie sent over this beautiful tropical destination wedding invitation and now I can practically smell the fresh ocean air! The invitation suite combines lots of texture – whitewashed wood veneer, letterpress printed text, and both matte and metallic foil – and stunning calligraphy from Brown Linen Design. Gorgeous!

From PapellerieJaclyn and Brent chose Belize for their destination wedding and we knew right away we wanted to do something tropical, fun, and that would portray the relaxed feeling of a tropical beach wedding. We started by designing their monogram: a custom J and B with a fishing fly illustration to represent their love of fly fishing.

Their save the date was digitally printed photographs (taken by the couple!) with white foil on the cover and information on the accommodations in Belize. We assembled each save the date with a gold rivet and burlap tie and slipped them into customized muslin bags.

All of the calligraphy on the set was created by Abany Bauer of Brown Linen Design and fit so perfectly with our vision for this tropical invitation. The invitation itself was printed on hand painted white washed wood paper with gold foil and brown letterpress, the insert cards were all letterpress printed or foil stamped – the orange welcome card features a fun matte foil!
