Last year, I featured the cutest Texas cactus wedding invitations for then-bride Emma James. Well, I wasn’t the only one that admired Emma’s handiwork with her wedding invitations, because Emma sent over a new set of wedding invitations that she designed for a fellow Texas bride! Paige and Adam’s wedding will take place later this spring at a horse farm, and Paige knew that she wanted an equestrian theme wedding invitation that reflected her lifelong love for horses.
From the bride, Paige: Our wedding is taking place at a horse farm just outside of Austin. Having ridden horses my whole life, I wanted an equestrian theme throughout the wedding. Having seen Emma’s vintage cactus wedding invitations on Oh So Beautiful Paper, I knew I wanted to collaborate with her for my invitations.
The invitation itself was letterpress printed with a quirky map motif that led from downtown Austin to the horse farm, Kali Kate. I loved adding the vintage postcard as a reply card. It added a beautiful splash of color and helped keep cost down.
The calligraphy, vintage postage, and DIY packaging tied everything together. For the packaging, I cut and assembled the kraft paper, ribbon, and burlap insert. The kraft paper was stamped with a monogram logo that Emma designed for us and made into a rubber stamp.
Overall, I love the way our invitations came out! The invitations are informal, but also pretty, and embody the rustic vintage feel I had envisioned for our outdoor hill country wedding.
