Happy Monday everyone! I’m back from Alt Summit and feeling ready to take on the world, so let’s start with some beautiful wedding invitations! I always know it’s going to be a good week when I start with a custom design from Samantha and Whitney of Gus & Ruby Letterpress. Created for a wedding in a small town in Vermont, these invitations feature elegant gold foil, classic navy, vintage imagery, and map details – with absolutely stunning results!
From Samantha and Whitney: This custom suite was designed for a fabulous New York couple who were getting married at the stunning Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, Vermont. The bride and groom wanted the invitation suite to get their guests – coming from all over – excited about a trip to the gorgeous green hills of Vermont and quaint town of Woodstock while still speaking to their chic sense of style.
A flat-printed folio featuring a vintage map of the Woodstock area was wrapped around the invitation panel and secured with gold threaded twine and a foil-stamped die-cut tag. The fun “See you in Vermont!” wording and location-specific wrap right away set the tone for this rustic-elegant destination wedding.
Inside the wrap, an invitation featuring gorgeous gold foil and elegant navy typography and some blind printed pattern for texture gave a fun twist on a classic layout – perfect for the couple’s vision of marrying the old-world charm of Vermont with their informed and stylish aesthetic.
The invitations and reply postcards featured a mix of classic serif fonts and a whimsical, romantic script. Each invitation was printed on double-thick 220# cotton paper. As always, all the pieces were lovingly letterpress printed by hand on our antique press.
Reply postcards featured a flat printed vintage postcard image of a covered bridge in Woodstock, Vermont duplexed together with a letterpress printed backside. A small brunch card featured a full flood of blind-printed pattern that gave the piece incredible texture and visual interest.
A custom envelope liner featuring another vintage Vermont image added an additional element of interest and our dear friend, Jenna, of Love, Jenna Calligraphy added her incredible hand-calligraphy on the envelope shown in the photos, too!
Thanks so much Sam and Whit!
