Kim + John’s Letterpress Airmail Wedding Invitations

I love travel-inspired elements on wedding invitations, and I’m officially a happy camper when designers combine a sense of global wanderlust with the signature red and blue pattern of an airmail envelope.  Well, Kathleen from & Kathleen Design did just that with her latest wedding invitation, and the result couldn’t be more stunning!

From Kathleen: Kim & John stumbled across my work while searching for a fun airmail invitation design.  They immediately hired me to design their own custom wedding invitations.  Kim and John only needed an invitation card – nothing else – so we decided to make it extra special by having it letterpress printed on a thick matte cover stock paper.

I kept the colors a classic red and blue and from there designed a custom invitation within the traditional striped airmail border.  Kim & John were ecstatic to receive the final prints and I was thrilled to have another happy client.

Ooh, letterpress + airmail?  Yes please!  Thank you so much Kathleen!

Michael + Breanna’s Antique Book Wedding Invitations

These vintage-inspired booklet wedding invitations from Jennifer Lane Graphic Design are beyond adorable.  Jennifer created the entire design around the couple’s love story, with elegant vintage inspired design elements and silhouette details.  So pretty!

From JenniferMichael and Breanna came to me looking for something totally different and unique for their elegant October wedding.  As soon as I heard their love story, I demanded that it be told to the world because it’s so stinkin’ cute!  This couple kept running into each other at different points in their lives throughout the course of several years and finally, became husband and wife in October of 2010!

For their invitation, I designed an antique book-inspired invitation that actually told their story in a few short chapters.  It includes a tear-wrenching dedication, a three chapter story (including all the times they ran into each other, as well as the oh-so-sweet proposal), invitation, directions/accommodations card, and a detachable RSVP postcard that can be torn off from the back and dropped in the mail.

There’s also a bookmark to invite those special guests to the rehearsal dinner and farewell BBQ after the wedding.

The tone of the piece was inspired by the couple’s vintage engagement shoot with a dress inspired by the 1930s.  The shoot was photographed by Rachael of Rachael Nicole Photography.  For their save the date, I designed a magnet with a personalized monogram.

The couple’s monogram was a visual representation of their story.  The swirls represent how they continued to run into each other at different points in their lives and the different roads they traveled, but ultimately how those roads lead them to each other (as the swirls lead to each other’s initials).  I combined some 1930s graphic design elements to capture the classic look and some contemporary elements as well.  These elements were then carried into the invitation.

Thank you so much Jennifer!
